Cirque Sanguine

I was on the fence with Cirque Sanguine from their Arcus Collection for quite a while, it wandered repeatedly into my basket only to be removed for another polish. But it kept sneaking back into my cart and mind. Finally I got my mind round it and went to check-out before reconsidering it again.

Cirque Sanguine is an orange shimmer with a very soft duo-chrome shift to yellow and at certain angles even pink.

 and I couldn't miss out on my underwater picture

I applied three coats of Cirque Sanguine over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula is very nice to work with though I find it a bit sheer. It built up nicely to opacity at three coats but if I would wear my nails longer my nail line would have been well visible. I finished the mani with Glitter Gal Gloss Boss Top Coat.

Final thoughts: I hoped the color would be deeper, stronger, more vibrant. But I have to admit, this soft orange grew on me while I had it on my nails and it gave a delicate reminiscence of sunshine and warm days.

I ordered Cirque Sanguine with Harlow & Co.

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for dropping by!!!

  3. i find your blog too nice, and i'm happy i've noticed your bio below but i'd preferred it more visible, cause i like to get to know about the blogger. i had already subbed, but if you'd like to make a links swap i'll surely visit and comment more with pleasure, and you are welcome in my corner, group of friends, discussions and challanges :)

    1. Oh how very sweet! I honestly never thought more of my bio would be interesting, but I will take the hint and work on it to make it a bit more revealing ;-) - now let me head over to yours…. <3
