Cirque Colors – Kontiki Collection Review

I am happy to say that it has been a pretty successful nail week! Two rainbow water marbles and my first ever video tutorial which if you missed you can find HERE. I also found time to try out my first ever Cirque Colors; a brand that I’ve had my eye on for some time. Annie, the creator of Cirque Colors, graciously sent me this gorgeous trio dubbed the Kontiki Collection, their new back to basics collection and four other lovely colors including two from the Heritage collection which I simply had been drooling over. I did a major happy dance when I opened up the package.
So lets start out my little Cirque escapade with the Kontiki collection.
Thicker Than Water is a turquoise jelly that has orange and green shimmers. For a jelly this showed impeccable application in three coats. I barely cleaned up around the edges of my nails. Being that I am using my crappy iPhone camera I was really unable to capture the beautiful shimmers that this and the other two colors posess as they stand out beautifully. There was a little VNL but it didn’t bother me and added to the chicness of this color and finish.
Dear Dahlia is a fuchsia jelly with a gold and green shimmer to it. I also used three coats for this color which had a lovely formula as well. There was a tint of VNL but again this did not bother me. Very hard to capture the colors the shimmer was giving off on this one. You can see it in the bottle of the second photo the best.
Midsummer Night is a dark cobalt blue jelly with a multi-color shimmer. This was the most unique shade from this trio for me as its such an intense blue with so many colors to it. No way could you truly understand this color unless you saw it in person its just so gorgeous. Definitely a color that I want to wear again ASAP. This was quite sheer at first application but after three coats I was satisfied with the outcome. You can see the unique shimmer somewhat in my blurry indoor photo.
I was so impressed with this beautiful and unique trio. The quality and colors of what I’ve tried so far are just what nail polish should be like. I can’t wait to share the rest of the shades I have with you all!
