Cirque Colors Still Life Collection, High Society + Others Swatches

Sunday, May 17, 2020

So when the pandemic hit, I might have done some stress buying at Harlow & Co. And now you're about to see the result of that stress buying on my nails. I'm not mad about it because the Cirque Colors I picked up are absolutely beautiful. I am sharing my photos and review here as well as on my YouTube channel if you want to see my swatch them in real time. Most of the polishes in this post are from the Cirque Colors Still Life Collection but I've also got their 4/20 release, High Society. Read on for more thoughts!

Cirque Colors A Fiori review swatch

Cirque Colors A Fiori is a pastel lilac creme nail polish. This polish is absolutely beautiful and my favorite shade of lilac - not too purple and not too white. I am wearing two coats over a ridge filling base coat (which I recommend for use under all cremes for ease of application). The formula is easy to work with and lasts really well on me. All the polishes I've tried from Cirque Colors last well on me with a base and top coat.

Cirque Colors Arabesque review swatch

Cirque Colors Arabesque is a dusty orange creme nail polish. This one is a bit of a chameleon because it doesn't look ALL that orange in certain lighting. I would say it's completely unique and a flattering neutral option. Two coats and the formula is absolutely perfect with great wear time (4 days without tip-wear and a week without chips).

Cirque Colors Crystal Tokyo glitter topper review swatch

Cirque Colors Crystal Tokyo is a beautiful mostly pink and iridescent glitter topper featuring over 20 different types of glitters in a clear base. I am wearing this over Cirque Colors Linen in one coat. A great formula and another beauty. I think glitter is having a bit of a resurgence and if you know me I love glitter toppers!

Cirque Colors Ghost Rose shimmer pink nail polish with tiny glitter throughout

Cirque Colors Ghost Rose is a sheer milky pink nail polish with magenta shimmer and delicate holographic sparkle. Wow! Okay, this is absolutely stunning. I chose to wear this in two coats because it's meant to be sheer and two coats gave me the finish I was looking for. I am going to wear the heck out of this. It's not streaky at all but do try to apply in straight lines for the most polished finish.

Cirque Colors Robin baby blue speckled nail polish

Cirque Colors Robin is a light cornflower blue nail polish with fine black specks. Another beauty! I love the little speckled finish Cirque Colors does. I am wearing two coats and I might have needed a thicker second coat than I applied but overall, I think this is a two coater. I love it so much!

Cirque Colors Trompe L'oiel faded neon yellow nail polish

Cirque Colors Trompe L'oiel is a neon pastel citron green creme nail polish. My photos show this very yellow. It is but it does have a hint of green in it. I needed three coats with this without a base coat. I think it would be fine in two with a ridge-filling base but it has a wonderful formula nonetheless!

Cirque Colors Linen sheer white nail polish

Cirque Colors Linen is a sheer white nail polish. I love seeing sheers from indie brands! I regret not using a ridge-filling base coat under this because it wasn't the most perfect finish in two coats. My ring finger is ridged so you can see how it pulled away from the high points on my nail. Nonetheless, I think it's a great sheer and it has a lovely high-gloss finish. Definitely a great cruelty free alternative to an Essie sheer like Sugar Daddy.

Cirque Colors High Society neon green shimmer nail polish

Cirque Colors High Society is a neon green nail polish with strong copper shimmer and delicate holographic sparkle. This one is super bright and the shimmer is very strong. I love the polish but it just didn't suit me because of the red undertones in my skin. I am wearing three coats. This formula wasn't as good as the other polishes I've reviewed in this post but it's still very workable. I think I expected it to be more opaque than it was. I wanted to love this polish but it just wasn't for me!
