Have you guys been loving the collections that Cirque Colors have been doing for Nordstrom as much as I have? Well...this month is no exception! Each month, Olivia Kim curates a special Pop-In Shop at select Nordstrom stores and online highlighting independent designers. For the month of August, Warby Parker has brought some of his awesome eyewear to the shop. Cirque Colors has taken inspiration from his collection to create polishes that compliment the colors and feel of the Warby Parker. There are 5 polishes in this limited edition collection that are combination of cool blues and grays. Gray polish is my most favorite color of polish. So you can imagine just how much I squealed in excitement when I saw these polishes. I love every single one of them! No lie. This collection from Cirque is only available from Nordstrom and will go away on September 6th. So get it while you can! Let's get into some swatches :)
"Fear and Loathing in New York" is a medium slate gray with a soft linear holographic shimmer. The base has a cool gray leaning blue hue. The formula is perfect! I used two coats for these swatches but I honestly almost stopped after one because the coverage was so good. Love, love, love!
"City Lights" is another soft and lovely holographic polish in this collection. The base color is a very light gray that is almost white. This is such a cool, chic color and the linear holo shimmer is subtle and classy. The formula was great as well. I used two coats with a glossy top coat for this swatch but was kind of happy after just one coat. It self leveled very well. This color is going to be my go to winter shade this year!
"Big Sur" is a bright cyan blue with bright pink shimmer running throughout. The color combo is such a popular shade this summer. The shimmer is dense so it makes this polish a little bit thicker but not difficult to work with at all. I used two coats with a glossy top coat for these swatches. I didn't have any problems with staining or clean up. The pink shimmer was much more prominent in the bottle than it was on the nail.
"Greenwich" is a delicate pale blue packed with tiny gold microflakies. Oh my...this is such a special polish! This shade of blue is so pale and soft which compliments the golden microflakies so well. Even though this polish is light in color, it was still opaque in two coats. So special!
"Iconoclast" is the glitter topper of the collection. This is a fun mix black and white matte hexes in a variety of sizes with a handful of iridescent and holographic bits. It is definitely an elevated B&W glitter topper. The glitter payoff is great and one coat over and base color will to the trick. I used this over "Fear and Loathing in New York" but it would look awesome over any of the other polishes in this collection.
Wow! I am just blown away by the cohesiveness of this collection. It is just so cool and chic and sophisticated. It is really difficult to choose a favorite but I think the two holos and the cool golden flakie are must haves. Which are your faves?
The Warby Parker collection from Cirque Colors is limited edition and available exclusively from Nordstrom. This Pop-in Shop will close up on September 6th so be sure to order yours before then.
