Quo by Orly Freshly Cut (stamped) – Shade
I tend not to wear red polishes very often but Quo by Orly Freshly Cut caught my attention in the clearance racks at Shoppers Drug Mart. I can’t resist any Quo polishes when they are on clear-out for only $2 and grabbed a few different ones. Red is not a colour I usually wear alone though so of course, I had to add some stamping. The black just tones down that in your face red-orange colour and makes my skintone look less lobster-y.
Quo by Orly Freshly Cut (stamped) – Indirect Sunlight
Freshly Cut has a shimmer in the bottle that is less visible on the nail but gives the polish an orange tinge that seems more wearable than a bright red. Dry time is great and definite the shimmer, it did not have many visible brush strikes and smoothed out well with top coat. Wear time was not great but this is an older polish being cleared out, so likely due to age as I find most Quo polishes last on me. It looks like Quo by Orly’s Freshly Cut was first released in 2011 for the Christmas collection so they may have been in store a while.

I used the circle style image you can see in the bottom left corner of the packaging from the Pueen Fairytale Lover 02 plate from my Pueen Love Box 02. Stamping it from just below the centre circle at the tip of each nail which covered about half of my nail with the exception of my baby finger where it is closer to the cuticle. The plate works great and since the stamping was only at the tips, did not stain too badly.
