1 comment

Hiya guys! I can't believe how quickly time is flying. It's already time for holiday collections to start rolling around and that blows my mind! But I'm not complaining, it's one of my favorite times of year to buy polish. Enabler mode fully activated, haha. Today I'm sharing swatches for the Holiday 2016 Collection by Cirque Colors, which consists of four sparkling shades. With this release marks the return of the fan-favorite Halcyon! So if you've had this on your wishlist then it's time to cross it off!

Winter Bloom can be described as a blushing mint green with holographic flakes. A favorite among favorites! I wasn't expecting to love this shade against my skin-tone, so it was a much welcomed surprise. And that sparkle... *drool* so much depth and dimension.

The fornula has a smooth application with a sheer build-up. The consistency is great for layering and you can easily achieve full coverage. It dries down to a minimal gritty finish, but smooths down perfectly with topcoat. Shown here in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Ambrosia can be described as an oxblood red holographic. No holiday is complete without a little vamp factor and here it is. I love how sexy and sleek this shade is! Pair this up with a little black dress and you'll be the star of anyholiday party.

Fornula has an opaque and smooth application with minimal need for layering. Great consistency, not too thick or too thin. Despite its rich pigmentation, I experienced no staining to my cuticles or nail bed. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Halcyon can be described as a highly reflective rose gold made with pure silver-coated micro-flakes. If you missed out on nabbing this beauty last year now is your chance! As someone who absolutely loves rose gold this is perfection. I'm actually pretty sure I just found the shade I'll wear at my wedding, haha.

The formula has an amazingly opaque application, it felt like I barely needed the second coat. Very smooth with good even consistency. Definitely a must-have in every sense. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Idyllic can be described as a highly reflective icy blue made with pure silver-coated micro-flakes. Photos don't do this gorgeous shade any justice. It legit made my camera completely freak out with how reflective and high shine the finish is. I love it so much and can't help but find it perfect for capturing the essence of an icy winter!

The formula has a similar application to that of Halcyon, very smooth and opaque throughout. It dries to a high-shine on its own, but I did add topcoat to help smooth down the flakes. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Overall this is another winning collection from Cirque Colors, which comes as no surprise. From formulas to finishes it's aces all around. Each one of these shades feels and looks very unique for the holidays. Which I love because it's different than what you expect to see for the season. It goes without saying that you need Halcyon in your nail life, especially now that you have a second chance at grabbing it! Tell me guys, which one is these shades is making your wishlist this year?
