Were any of you also totally smitten by Cirque's latest Collection Alchemy? I badly, very badly, fell for it and Lichen, the olive-golden-to-grass-green-shifting polish, was the first I threw into my cart. Once more, I have taken tons of pictures:

Waterbowl shot anyone?
I applied two velvety coats of Cirque Lichen over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula is creamy and pigmented. You could get away with one coat if carefully applied but I prefer the base color deeper and more saturated. Lichen dries fast to a soft shine - I slapped on one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer to achieve the glossy finish.
Final thoughts: another dangerous polish in my collection - or maybe there are just too many lamp posts in my road, but ogling my nails was really distracting and I just could not get enough at discovering all depths and dimensions Lichen has to show off!!! And I cannot wait to show you my other picks from that collection - but this will be saved for another week…..
I order my Cirque polishes with their own website, but there are a number of international e-sellers that offer Cirque: Harlow & Co, MeiMei Signatures and Pshiiit Boutique to name three.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
