This is a gorgeous pale metallic peachy colour. It's like...y'know how rose gold is copper and gold mixed together? Silken quartz is like rose PLATINUM, if that were a thing. I'm a cool-toned, really pale white chick and this is GORGEOUS on me (I feel like it would be gorgeous on just about anyone, though!). It took me three coats or maybe even four to get this to the point of no visible nail line, but I love the colour so much it was worth it. Plus it goes on pretty easily and dries fast, so it's not too huge a deal to put on a bunch of coats. One coat looks POTENTIALLY really pretty, just as a shimmery translucent topcoat sorta thing, but it's a bit too streaky for that to quite work. Or else I kinda suck at applying nail polish. I'm currently wearing this with one layer of Zoya's Maria Luisa on top (gold flakies in a clear base) and it looks so subtle and sophisticated and pretty to me that I'm swooning. I really like Orly's wide brush and easy-to-grip cap, too.
