Cirque Colors x Nordstrom Warby Parker Collection

33 comments

Hiya guys. It's been a unproductive couple of days even though I have been on vacation from work. I am simply enjoying being at home and sleeping in for a change. I so sound like I'm a million years old haha. But something that never gets old is a gorgeous polish collection and boy do I have a great one to share today. This weekend Cirque Colors x Nordstrom teamed up once again for the launch of their newest pop-in event. The Warby Parker Collection by Cirque Colors is exclusive to this Nordstrom event and once sold out it will not be restocked.

The Warby Parker Collection by Cirque Colors consists of a one flakie, one shimmer, two holographics, and one glitter topper. These polishes will be available online and at select stores (you can check out the location list at the bottom of this post) starting August 7th to September 6th.

Cirque Colors x Nordstrom Warby Parker Collection

Nordstrom's newest monthly pop-in welcomes Warby Parker - an innovative eyewear brand known for their vintage-styled frames and their "buy a pair, give a pair" program. For this event, Cirque Colors has created an exclusive 5-piece collection inspired by Warby Parker's signature hues and literary influences.

Cirque Colors - Big Sur 
Cirque Colors - Big Sur

Big Sur can be described as a medium cyan blue with pink shimmer. Such a gorgeous tone of blue and the shimmer adds such an interesting twist. You can really see the shimmer on an angle and in the macro. The formula is fantastic and it has a great consistency, not too thick or too thin with each coat. Very opaque as well. I probably could of gotten away with one thick coat, but I went ahead with two thin ones. Shown here is two thin coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Greenwich can be described as a pale light blue with gold flakes. Super subtle flakies here, which ends up meshing well with my tastes. I really loves how creamy the finish is, definitely a must-have for me. The formula was smooth, but I did find it to be a little bit on the thick side. Shown here is two thin coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Cirque Colors - Fear and Loathing in New York
Cirque Colors - Fear and Loathing in New York

Fear and Loathing in New York can be described as a slate gray holographic. I am a firm believer that there aren't enough grey polishes out there, so this made me fall in love instantly. The formula is smooth and really opaque, consistent with what we have to expect from Cirque Colors. Shown here is two thin coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

City Lights can be described as a dove white holographic. Simply stunning. It's not often you see a beautiful white holo, it almost reminds me of glistening snow. I'm going to have to label this one as a must-have as well. The formula was surprisingly opaque for such a light color. The consistency was again very smooth and had an easy application throughout. Shown here is two thin coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Iconoclast can be described as a salt n' pepper glitter with a dash of holo sparks. Such a classic glitter topper combination. While I can't say it's a unique polish, it is a pretty cute one to have and add to your collection if you don't. Formula was very impressive and had ample glitter in each brush stroke. Actually it only needed one to give me a really good full coverage look. Shown here over City Lights with one coat.

Overall the Warby Parker Collection by Cirque Colors is another out of the ball-park win. But seriously does Cirque Colors ever disappoint? I think not! Again my picks for must-haves are going to have to be City Lights and Greenwich. Both colors are incredibly unique and the smooth applications are a major bonus. Most of the colors in this collection just have that uniqueness feel and it's a great color palette for this time of year. I cannot recommend this collection anymore than I already have. Definitely check it out.
