I have some gorgeous little Cirque Colors duos to share with you tonight! Cirque Colors has teamed up with Nordstrom's Pop-In Shops again this month. These are small little "shops" curated by Olivia Kim that pop up in select stores and online. The items sold in the shops are all themed and for a limited time only. Currently, the Pop-In Shop is in collaboration with NYC fashion brand Opening Ceremony. Inspired by the colors of these fashions, Annie has created three gift sets, each including one creme and on holographic polish that is exclusive to this event. I was able to snag all three sets to share with you all. I thought it would be fun to do some double side dots which each of the duos to show off the different shades. These Cirque Colors Icon Duos will only be available to purchase through Nordstrom until Jan 3rd. So if you like them...grab them quick!
The first set is "Tangerine Dream" and "Selvedge". I love this pairing! "Tangerine Dream" is a bright but soft orange coral with subtle linear holographic polish. The formula was fantastic and had a little bit of a squishy jelly quality to it. It paired beautifully with "Selvedge" which is a bright navy creme. Cirque really does a fantastic job with cremes. I did two coats for this look but could have gotten away with only one. Everything was topped off with a glossy top coat.
The next duo is "Modern Muse" and "El Capitan." The contract between these two colors is striking but still pretty. "Modern Muse" is a soft, dusty pink blush holographic. The linear holo shimmer is very strong with this color. I used two coats and the polish just applied so smoothly. The creme in the set is "El Capitan" which is an avocado green. This is an interesting shade of green that has a real retro vibe. Again, perfectly creamy formula with two coats used here. The whole mani was topped with a glossy top coat.
The final set is the crowd favorite, "Oporto" and "Storm King." I just adore both of these polishes! "Oporto" is a rich burgundy jelly with holographic shimmer. The holo is more scattered than linear but it looks like it is glowing from within through the dark jelly base. Gorgeous! The formual was buttery and easy to apply; completely opaque in two coats. The creme to go along with this burgundy shade is a dusty sky blue called "Storm King." Even though this is a light colored polish, it was still nicely opaque in two coats without any streaking. Amazing duo here!
The Cirque Colors Icon Duo are being sold through Pop-In@Nordstrom through January 3rd. The polishes will not be sold individually, only in the designated duos. The retail for $22 for the pair but right now I see they are 33% off/ That's only $14.74 for each duo and you get free shipping through Nordstrom. You really can't pass these up for that price. If you held a gun to my head and told me to pick a favorite, I would have to go with Tangerine Dream and Selvedge. I am just a sucker for orange polish. Which is your fave? And don't for get to tag me in your own #doublesidedots manicure. I love seeing your own color combos :)
