Cirque Colors Cape Liz and XX

Happy New Year!! I hope you had a great start.... mine was at home, watching Harry Potter with my husband hahaha!!
Today I have my first Cirque polishes to show you. Cirque is a brand made in New York by Annie, whom I had the pleasure to meet. Her colors are sophisticated and the packaging is very professional. I love her brand and she's super sweet and a great inspiration for a new polish maker like me. My goal is that my brand can be in the future as flawless as hers, each in their different style!!
Well enough chatting, let's see the pretties!
I picked Cape Liz and XX at a local fair and it was a tough choice, having all her collection together to see in real life!

 Cape Liz is a dark gray with very strong blue undertones, almost a light blue in some lighting. It has a beautiful iridescent shimmer and a jelly-like formula. I used three coats for the pictures below.

XX (twenty) is de ultimate pastel rainbow glitter. Seriously, a must have. It's super shiny because the glitter is also holographic, but the soft colors make it look soft at the same time. LOVE. I use one coat over Cape Liz.

You know me, I have a jelly and a glitter and I just have to try a glitter sandwich! In this case I finished with another coat of Cape Liz. A very thin coat, because Cape Liz is not that sheer. I absolutely loved the result!!! What a great combo! Now I need to try XX with all my jellies!!!  I wore it as a full mani but I added a coat of YSL Premiere neige too. Of course I forgot to take pictures of that :-(

I'm very happy with my choices! High quality hand mixed nail polish, from the packaging, the colors to the formula.... excellent!
A little note about the polishes: they're slightly scented. They have lavender oil in their formula, but is very subtle. I don't like lavender and it gives me headaches, but it was ok for me.
You can get Cirque at their website here and n different international retailers like Mei Mei Signature (Singapore) and Pshiit Boutique (France).
The regular colors are $13 and the holos $15
If you live in the New York area or are planning a visit, check Cirque FB page because maybe you're lucky and can find her at a local fair!!! Excellent to see all the colors, meet Annie and don't pay shipping LOL!
Do you have any Cirque? Any one you're dying to get?? Thanks for reading!!
