Cirque Colors Metropolis Monthly Release Collection
November 30, 2014
provided for review
Well its been a nice relaxing thanksgiving break and I probably should have done more school work then I did but I just wasn’t feeling it. Plus I’ve had a cold for most of the time so I’ve just been enjoying my time with netflix with some nails mixed in. Soon school work will not be a burden in my life anymore as I will be graduating in less then two weeks now, I simply can’t believe it!
A brand that has been impressing me lately with its unique creations and colors is that of Cirque Colors. Everything I’ve tried from them has put a smile on my face when I used it. Their Metropolis collection did not fall short of that as it consists of creams, and well if you didn’t know that is my favorite finish of polish. Most likely because creams always work so good for water marbling but also because of their smooth application and settling on the nail. A new cream is released every month and added to Cirque Colors Metropolis collection gaining inspiration form the city that never sleeps, New York.
NYFW, the first shade released from this collection, is a deep bright blue cream that showed full opacity in ONE smooth coat. And just to show you how smooth this baby really is I didn’t even apply topcoat for my photos. Cirque Colors describes this as an ultramarine which after looking up means a deep blue. Ultramarine was the most expensive blue paint used by Renaissance painters so it only seems right to go with this shade inspired by NYFW. Pure perfection, just love it!
La Vie Boheme is a dark plum cream that showed full opacity in two coats. If you had smaller nails then you probably could get away with one coat but I used two just to even it all out. I couldn’t stop looking back at my nails when I had this beauty on, so great for the cold fall and winter months. The name on this shade comes from a song from the popular musical Rent which celebrates bohemianism. Can the inspiration for this shade get any better?!
This past week I received the Nail Vinyls variety pack prize for my Mucking Milestone Giveaway, enter HERE if you haven’t, and Linda their creator was kind enough to send me a couple sheets of vinyls to try! She included these Starburst vinyls which I used to create this manicure below with. The pairing of La Vie Boheme and Tillie Polish’s ‘Golden Goddess’ with these vinyls was quite nice in my eyes. I used Glisten & Glows HK Girl Topcoat before applying the vinyls and it only took 15 minutes to completely dry, it was like magic! And how about my nice chic hand pose I tried out? ;-)
Cirque Colors describes Knickerbocker just as I would, as a dark chocolatey brown. Pure perfection in just two smooth coats, this brown beauty leans a little lighter then what my below photo shows. I did some holiday nail art with this as the base that I’ll be sharing later in the week, be on the lookout!
I’ll be sharing some more colors from the Metropolis collection later in the week but you may want to take advantage of Cirque Colors current holiday sale where they are offering 20% off until December 1st!
