China Glaze Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!  Today I have some pretties to share with you from China Glaze's Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away Collection...

Igniting Love:

Igniting Love is described as a "Hot Tamale Red Creme."  I didn't care for this one while I was applying it.  The formula was a little "greasy" for a creme, but after it dried, Igniting Love has a gorgeous glossy finish.  I wouldn't consider this a "true creme", but the formula was ok and the final results are beautiful.  Pictured above is two coats of Igniting Love.

Bend Over Backwards:

Bend Over Backwards is described as "Pepper Red Shimmer."  I really like the formula with Bend Over Backwards, it's almost a one-coater and the consistency of the polish is perfect.  It practically applies itself!  The subtle orange undertones really make this one beautiful!  I have two coats of Bend Over Backwards in the above pictures.

Creative Fantasy:

Creative Fantasy is described as "Grape Neon."  Ummm, no.  I don't agree with that description, but I do really like Creative Fantasy.  It applies like a jelly and dries almost matte, but I wouldn't quite call it "neon."  I really wish I could have captured the true color of Creative Fantasy.. it isn't as "blue" as the pictures... in real life, it has red tones and is a "true purple."  The formula is quite sheer; I have three coats of Creative Fantasy in the above two pictures.

Get Carried Away:

Get Carried Away is described as "multi sized black and red collage glitter with black creme."  Ummm.. another description that isn't accurate.  There's also silver glitter and I see no red glitter.. it's pink. (which is fine with me because I love black and pink together).  The base in NOT a creme.. it's sheer black.  This formula was hard to work with.. you really have to dab the polish on.  After two coats of Get Carried Away, a coat of gelous, and two coats of topcoat everything was smooth and shiny.  This polish is just a lot of work.  I guess if you have the patience, it's worth it.

Water You Waiting For:

Water You Waiting For is described as "Shimmering blue, green, and purple."  I like Water You Waiting For.  Application was easy and the formula was a piece of cake to work with.  You will have to use a few coats of topcoat because it does dry gritty.  I have two coats of Water You Waiting For followed by two coats of topcoat in the above two pictures.

Hanging in the Balance:

Hanging in the Balance is described as "Cerulean blue creme".  Whoa.. I included three pictures of this one because it's so beautiful!!  It's a little darker a tad more teal in real life.  Hanging in the Balance is so stunning!  I will use this many times with nail art.  One word of caution: Hanging in the Balance is a STAINER!!  It didn't stain my nails too badly, but be careful not to get too much on your cuticles because it's sooo hard to remove!!  Pictured above is two coats of Hanging in the Balance.

**Overall, I really like the six polishes I've shared with you from the Cirque du Soleil Collection...especially Bend Over Backwards and Hanging in the Balance.  China Glaze really makes the most gorgeous cremes and all their formulas are usually excellent with each polish they create.**
