Oh boy, do I have some pretty polishes to share with you today! The Cirque Colors Facets Collection has a finish that I just love. They are all jelly bases packed with holographic flakes. The finish is very similar to Zoya's holographic shades and piCture pOlish Bijou holographics. The glitters in these are delicate and flat. The do not stick up out of the polish and are very easy to remove. Nothing like a traditional glitter. I just love this type of polish. It always looks gorgeous, no matter what the color or occasion is. Let's take a look at these six little beauties!
Dioptase - A deep ocean teal jelly with silver scattered holographic microflakies. This color! I am sure this will be a favorite of many. The deal teal color looks magical. The formula was super and I only needed two coats for full opacity. I am showing you all of these swatches with a glossy top coat.
Garnet - A deep garnet red jelly base with tons of silver scattered holographic microflakies. This is my birthstone shade and I feel it matches the gemstone quite well. If I had my crap together, I would have worn this on my birthday this past weekend! Lovely formula on this one as well, two coats is all it took to be opaque. The silver flakes under the garnet jelly almost give some of them a golden feel.
Tanzanite - A bold blurple jelly with silver scattered holographic microflakies. This color was difficult to photograph. It looks very blue in some light and very purple in others. I feel my camera was catching this more on the blue side. It is actually a nice mix of both blue and purple. The holo flakes look amazing with this color. Again, fantastic formula here. I only needed two coats for full opacity.
Paraiba - A bright aqua/jade green jelly with silver scattered holographic microflakies. Wow! This color is stunning! I think these aqua shades are always a huge hit. The formula with this lighter color was more sheer. I needed three coats for good opacity. You can seen how much more holo flakies are in this swatch vs. the darker shades. So if you wanted more sparkle in the darker ones, add another coat.
Smokey Quartz - A deep blackened brown jelly with scattered holographic microflakies. Another great shade here! The added brown coloring steps this up from being just another black polish with holo flakies. It does look black in the shade but in brighter light you can see that it is brown. And the holo flakies have a little bit more of a golden feel here as well. Super chic! I am showing you two coats with glossy top coat here.
Morganite - A peachy nude jelly with scattered holographic microflakies. Of course, you know this one is my fave. I just love nude/neutral shades with a little added special something. This isn't exactly rose gold but very close. I just love love love it! With this being a lighter jelly color, I did need three coats for good opacity. But that extra coat gave it extra sparkle.
I feel like I have been overly gushing about this collection but it is all true. These colors are amazing and the formulas are perfect. I will wear them all over and over again. This collection is still available on the Cirque Colors site but these shades are limited edition. That means they won't be around for ever. So if you want them, snag them. You will no be disappointed, I promise.
