Quo by Orly Art Scene Glitter Top Coat in "Abstract" & "Graffiti": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
New from Quo by Orly for Spring 2015 is a line of fun Art Scene Glitter Top Coats ($10 CAD each) inspired by various art styles. I love eclectic and colorful glitter combos so I was super excited to play with these. To check out some close-ups and my thoughts on the formulation, click........
This is a clear top coat filled with pastel orange, lavender, white bar glitters, tiny white hex, and medium square glitters. The polish looks quite packed in the bottle but it's actually a pretty sparse on the nails. I definitely had to do a little "glitter-fishing to pick up a couple of the square glitters. I used two coats of the glitter over Crushed Rose from CND.
Two coats over base color; no top coat.

Unlike "Abstract", this glitter is packed with glitters. Blue, orange, and black small hex, small red hex, and black bar glitters, this one has got it all. Below is one coat over "Reflecting Pool" from CND, check out how much glitter that is! Amazing! The finish is a bit bumpy so I suggest topping it with a good, thick top coat.
One coat over base color; no top coat.

One hit and one miss, not too bad. The collection has two more colors: "Contemporary" and "Pop". But out of these two, I definitely recommend "Graffiti" because it's such a great combination of colors and shapes!
