It was my Birthday recently and I provided myself with some polish gifts - now who would have guessed? First up Cirque Coronation - the latest nailpolish/jewelery collaboration of Cirque nail polish. This time Annie from Cirque teamed up with Jeannie Vianney - a young Texan jewelry designer. The set (many of you might have seen it already I assume) consists of the beautiful purple jelly filled with magenta shimmer and interspersed with tiny holo glitter and a size adjustable ring that was formed from a piece of lace that got dipped in metal and plated with rose gold. The result is a sweet little crown to adorn your hand.

I applied three thin coats of Cirque Coronation over Essence Hardening Nail Base. Despite being a jelly application was like with a cream polish and already the first coat went on smooth and nice. Given the jelly polishonality of Coronation the pigmentation is not overly strong but easily buildable to opacity. You might know by now, that I love to add some additional shimmer-dimension and usually opt for three coats with a shimmer polish. It dries fast to a satin finish - nice enough I have to admit, but man, look at what a glossy Top Coat does to the shimmer - it literally bursts to life!!!
This little crown as ring is adorable, wouldn't you agree? And its rounded edges make it comfortable to wear all day - it already passed the inevitable iron hand squeeze without leaving any marks. Isn't it, that you only come across those hand squeezers when wearing some jewelry that morph that squeeze into torture?
I ordered Cirque Coronation with Cirque's own website. Currently the set is sold out but the site says it should be back by mid-November.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
