As you may or may not know, I spend my Sundays with close friends and some family playing pen and paper RPGs. All of these polishes were made with some of my most beloved characters in mind. Even if you don't know what that is, I'm sure you can still enjoy the beauty of these polishes!
First up! Quui was named after my monk during our Rise of the Runelords Pathfinder campaign. She had some awesomesauce orange monk robes, hence the color inspiration! The only pictures I can find are both not wearing orange robes and designed off of Diablo 3 monks, but my D3 monk had the same name! So it all works out.

For this, I did two easy and amazing coats of Quui from Jior Couture. After that, I used "Little Brown Dress" from Essie, "Cypress" and "Never Nude" from Cirque Colors, and "Wooden Shoe Like to Know?" from OPI to make some mountains. These are the mountains that my lovely monk was squashed in! I decided to add some dots to the top because it looked very empty. For some reason, my skin looks very colorless in this picture where it didn't in person. As expected, this polish is perfect in every way! Great coverage, amazing dry time, and no staining when I removed it. Love, love, love.
Here's a bit of a closer view!

For this lovely business here, I used three coats of Quiemita for the base. It was pretty opaque in two, but I prefer not seeing my nail line. The wonderful Quiemita's favorite food was cave mushrooms, so that's what I decided to draw! You should have seen the practice mushrooms for this, it was just a hilariously bad process. For the mushrooms, I used a base of "Yes Your Majesty" by Stardust Polish with "Little Brown Dress" by Essie for the dots and outlines. The underside of the mushroom is "Butt Bootie Naked" by Lacquer Lust and the stem is "Wooden Shoe Like to Know?" from OPI. As per usual, this polish was perfection. It dried very quickly and was easily removable despite being super glittery and gorgeous on the nail!
A sort of close up to see my mushroom that I'm unreasonably proud of and a better view of the shimmer!

As with Quui, this was two coats and a breeze to use. Since Moll was an insane murderer, I gave her a blood accent nail using "Through the Fire" from Deborah Lippmann. In fact, I designed this polish off of the blood that she tended to spill. I miss the heck out of her! As with all of the above, I'm entirely in love with this polish.

Overall, these polishes were everything that I wanted and more than I expected! They were made and shipped in record time, and there was clearly no lacking in quality in the process. If you've ever been hesitant to buy custom polishes like I was, look no further! Jior's got you all set up. Check them out at www.jiorcouture.com.
If it wasn't obvious, I paid for these myself. I wasn't asked to review them, I just honestly love them and wanted to share my experience!
