Neon water marble

Yesterday I had some fun playing around with polishes. I did a water marble which I haven’t done in forever, so it was about time! I wanted it to be colorful and fun so I went for my Cirque Colors Vice shades and I love how they turned out!

First I painted my nails with a white polish, I used Alpine snow from OPI, then I covered my skin around my nails with Simply peel from Bliss Kiss to get an easy clean up. For the water marble I used Plastik, Rehab, Electric Daisy and High Roller from Cirque Colors, and they turned out to be perfect for water marbling! To create the pattern I used the #7 Water marble tool from Pure Color/Whats up nails.

I have a tutorial for this mani which you can see here.

At first I thought about using holo polishes for my water marble, but instead I decided to put a holo top coat over the finished result. So here I used one coat of We Trippy from Cirque Colors and I really like the result.

If you thought I was finished here you were wrong. I’ve seen people stamp over their water marbles with really cool results, so I just had to give it a try. I used one of my new favorite stamping plates, Feeling shapely! 07 from Lina nail art supplies tighter with my favorite black stamping polish Midnight Mischief from Painted Polish. And I’m really digging this look too.

Hope you like my water marble, and I really hope that I’ll marble soon again because it was really fun!

Blue stamped nails

Hi everybody. It’s Monday again and it’s also the second time I’m joining Emelie’s blue Monday theme.

For today’s nails I’m using the second stamping plate that I got from Lina nail art supplies a couple of weeks ago. The base for my mani is Rhapsody in blue from Cirque Colors. I stamped this beautiful pattern over it using Feeling shapely! 07 from Lina nail art supplies and White Knight from MoYou London.

Which version do you like the most, matte or glossy?

Cirque Colors Madder

While I wait for one of my nails to grow out (because I can’t file the other nails that short, and I want them all the same length) I’m showing some swatches that I have saved on my phone.

Today we’re taking a closer look at Madder from Cirque Colors. I used this polish not too long ago for one of my Christmas manis, which you can find here.

Madder is a red linear holo that covers in two coats and is easy to apply. It is stunning, as all the other polishes from Cirque that I’ve tried. I must say that I really, really like this brand.

December 17 | Santa french manicure

Happy Saturday everybody! Can you believe that it’s only one week left until Christmas eve!? That also means thats it’s only two weeks left of this year, crazy!

For day 17 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I’ve made a French manicure with a twist, it’s Santa inspired.

For this manicure I used Nail Envy Bubble bath and Alpine snow from OPI along with Madder from Cirque Colors. This design is really easy to make, all you need is a dotting tool.

Happy birthday Fernanda

Today is not just any day, it’s Fernanda’s (@themermaidpolish) birthday! To celebrate me and some other talented girls made a collage for Fernanda where we recreated manis that she’s made.

I chose to recreate this bright geometric mani that she made with polishes from Cirque Colors 2016 Vice collection.

And here is how my mani turned out! I used Rehab, High Roller and Nolita Lolita from Cirque Colors (Fernanda used Sin City but I don’t have that shade so I used Nolita Lolita instead). To create the accent nail I used stamping plate BP-77 from Born Pretty and Lady in Black from OPI. I used the reverse stamping technique again, and it’s so easy and fun!

Happy birthday Fernanda, I hope you have a lovely day with lots of presents and polish! 😘❤️🎁💅🏻

Cirque Colors

I have recently gotten really into indie polishes. It all started with piCture pOlish this summer, and my latest discovery is Cirque Colors.

Cirque Colors is a New York-based indie brand specializing in hand-blended nail lacquers. Their nail polish is 3-free, which means it does not contain toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). And in true indie style all their products are hand-mixed in small batches and hand-poured individually.

Let’s take a look at my first three, but definitely not last, polishes from Cirque Colors.

Xochitl is a beautiful purple linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. I don’t know why but I’m really drawn to purple holos and this one is no exception. I actually think this one could be my absolute favorite purple holo!

Bejeweled is a blue linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. OMG just look at this blue color, isn’t it the prettiest you’ve seen!?

img_0607Cirque – Framboise

Framboise is a raspberry pink linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. Wow, another stunning polish! This color is just so pretty and girly.

You guys I’m really impressed with these polishes, they are super easy to apply and have great formulas! I don’t think I can decide which shade I like the most, it depends on what mood I’m in for the moment.

Have you tried any polishes from Cirque Colors?
