Hiya guys! How's it going today? I had a very exciting weekend, because I once again went down to Paramus and spent the day at the Garden State Plaza. When I say that this mall is huge, it's kind of an understatement. But this trip wasn't all just fun, there was also some polish business to attend to! Those of you that follow me on Instagram might have seen me post about Nordstrom once again joining forces with Cirque Colors for this months Pop-In theme.
The Nike Women Pop-In Collection by Cirque Colors brought to you by Nordstrom has three cremes and three LE shimmers. These will be available exclusively on Nordstrom.com or in select stores (you can find the locations at the bottom of the post). Once sold out these will not be restocked so grab them while you can!
Inspired by bright hues, textures, and patterns, Cirque Colors has put together a special release that re-introduces some of their most coveted limited editions paired with our bright feminine cremes. Go ahead—flaunt a color that is as bold and as strong as you are.
Dear Dahlia is fuchsia jelly with multi-dimensional shimmer. Simply gorgeous color, probably my favorite among the three shimmers in fact. I can see this being a must-have for the summer. Fantastic formula and consistency, not too thick or too thin with each coat. I probably could of gotten away with two, but I went ahead with three thin coats for these swatches.
Coronation is purple jelly with multi-dimensional shimmer. I love how squishy this one looks and the deep color is stunning as well. Very suiting for my skin-tone. It has the same great formula as Dear Dahlia and gave me no issues applying. Swatched here using two thin coats and sealed in with Seche Vite topcoat.
Thicker Than Water
Thicker Than Water is turquoise jelly with multi-dimensional shimmer. Let me just say the color for my swatches is a little off, in person you'll find this leaning more towards a green tone. Very tricky color to photograph, but it's truly a sight to see. Formula and consistency were spot on like the rest of the shimmers in this collection. Smooth and even application throughout. Swatched here is two thin coats sealed in with Seche Vite topcoat.
Sunset Park is a bright coral creme. This is another that didn't photograph exactly how it is in person, the color coral always tends to be off against my skin-tone. It's a lot more peach orange toned in person. It's unfortunately the one color I can never feel comfortable wearing personally, but it's stunning on lighter skin-tones. Formula was very good and applied evenly on the first coat. Swatched here are two thin coats followed by Seche Vite topcoat.
Vigo is a orchid pink creme. I'll be honest and say I was not expecting to like this shade as much as I did after putting it on. It's one of those colors that seem 'boring' in the bottle, but man does this come to life when you're wearing it. The formula was fantastic on this creme polish, almost a one coater! Very opaque and nice all around. For these swatches, I used two thin coats and sealed them in with Seche Vite topcoat.
Doyers is a cherry red creme. Now this is a color I can rock like no other! The consistency felt a little bit runny without being thin, if that makes sense. Still a good formula for the most part, just have to apply very thin coats to avoid any cuticle flooding. For these swatches, I used two thin coats and sealed them in with Seche Vite topcoat.
Overall every one of the shades is a must-have in one way or another. I was not expecting to be as blown away as I was with the shimmers (which are limited edition). Each shade during this special release retails for $13 each and once sold out will not be restocked. I definitely recommend these to you guys, you won't be disappointed no matter the shade/finish you chose to go with.
Now on to the Pop-In display at the Normstrom in Paramus Garden State Plaza!
So not what I was expecting when I walked into Nordstrom! The part that threw me for a loop was the fact that the entire area was in closed quarters this time around. Last time everything was loud, out, and open but this time around the vibe was much different. I'll admit that for a second I had a sinking feeling at the pit of my stomach, because I had the date wrong hehe. Inside this closed off section was what I can only describe as a floral paradise of active-wear.
So many flowers! And the coloring of everything looked like an Instagram filter, very chic and beautiful. I love colorful sneakers and was absolutely drooling over those lavender-pink ones on the right there. But where's the Cirque Colors display?!
Unfortunately, there was no actual display like the last time to showcase these beauties. Instead they were at the bottom of the wooden stand. To be honest, this part of the display felt a little unfinished. Like they ran out of flowers and wallpaper, because it was seriously just a plain wooden crate. If you end up going to the store, seriously give the area a good look because otherwise you might end up passing right by these without noticing!
