My (glitter) polishes from Cirque Colors: Electric Circus and Kaleidoscope

Hi everyone!

There is this awesome challenge called #wirlackieren for which Marzipany and Tinesuchtnachmehr announce one (or sometimes two) brands per month that everyone in the nail community will obsessively paint their nails with 😀 Everyone tries to show as many polishes of that given brand as possible within that month.

The brands in February are Cirque Colors and Cadillaquer. Unfortunately, I don’t own any polishes from Cadillaquer. But at least I have two (!) polishes from Cirque Colors that I can show you! Yay!

I bought these back in the day (2014), when a good glitter polish was hard to come by and when neon and matte glitters were the new thing in the nail world. I was obsessed with Electric Circus so I had to have it! I must admit the only reason why I ordered the second one (Kaleidoscope) was so that Electric Circus wouldn’t be so lonely. But I never regretted getting Kaleidoscope as well! Both Electric Circus and Kaleidoscope are one of the highest quality glitter polishes I own, and the glitters haven’t bled out or faded after 4 years, which is quite impressive!

So here is one coat (!) of Electric Circus over a white base (Catrice – Milky Bay). The glitter payoff is insane! It is really fool-proof and one coat gives an even coverage as shown on the picture below. I added one coat of Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat.

Next up is Kaleidoscope. It is a beautiful combination of various sizes and shapes of matte glitters. I didn’t put this one over a white base because it contains white glitter as well, so I chose a baby-blue creme polish instead (Color Club – Take me to your Chateau). The application of this one is a little more tricky – the clear base is quite thin so I had to snag the bigger glitter particles and place them on my nails. Nevertheless this is a fun nail polish that makes me happy every time I look at it! I topped this one with a coat of Seche Vite Quick Dry as well.

Those two polishes are all I can contribute to #wirlackierencirquecolors as they are (unfortunately) the only polishes I own from Cirque. Have you participated in the challenge? Are you going to participate next month?  The brand for next month will be Anny. I don’t own any polishes from Anny 😦 But I’m looking forward to all of your swatches!

Happy Sunday everyone and read you soon!
