Qlour Romantic Grey – swatch and review

Today I would like to show you another one of the new Qlour nail polishes, this time from the Romantic collection: Romantic Grey (on the far right on the press picture below):

This collection from Qlour could also be called the “Nude” collection and I think that every nail polish brand needs a nude collection! All of these colours look work-appropriate to me. “Romantic Grey” is a muted dusty greyish lilac shade. It is another creme shade with a hint of blue and pink microshimmer (see bottleshot below).

The consistency of this polish was a little on the thick side, making it a little hard to apply, but no major issues. I had some bubbles too but they could be fixed with some Top Coat. The polish was opaque after two coats. Drying time was great. For the pictures below I used two coats plus Seche Vite. The first picture in the shade with natural lighting is the most colour accurate one.

When the sun hits the nail polish, the microshimmer is visible on the nail and gives the polish depth and opacity.

I like this colour and as you might know I’m a huge fan of microshimmer, so that’s a plus. This colour is work-appropriate and pleasantly calm. However, it is not very unique and didn’t have quite the wow-effect on me, but that is probably because I already own so many muted purples!

One bottle of 11ml Qlour nail polish costs 6,95 EUR. The price is reasonable for a new and independent nail polish brand that claims to be (mostly) vegan and 100% formaldehyde- and toluol-free. The dry time, opacity and wear of the polishes I tested so far are really good.

Stay tuned for more swatches of Qlour nail polishes or visit Mary Sto or Greedy Nails for swatches of other colours by this new brand! Also, check out my previous post about Qlour Graffiti Pink!
