Swatches & Review - Cirque Colors The Burlesque Collection

Hi loves! Today I have the brand new collection from Cirque Colors to show you, which is called The Burlesque Collection! It's a 4 piece set with gorgeous and Fall appropriate holographic shades which I'm sure you'll love. The inspiration for these shades came from vaudeville shows of the early 20th century. They embody the lush and dramatic stripteases that put such acts like the British Blondes and Gypsy Rose Lee on the map.

I swatched all 4 shades over a base of Cirque Colors Holdfast basecoat and topped them with Cirque Colors Liquid Laminate topcoat for a shiny finish. Each shade applied well and was opaque in 2 coats!

Cirque Colors Harlow is an antique gold with a rainbow holographic finish. Very unique and eyecatching, this greenish golden hue has quite the metallic finish to it.

Cirque Colors Trocadero is a navy blue with a rainbow holographic finish. Color corrected a bit because it wanted to show some purple in my swatches, but it's a true navy blue.

What a beautiful shades! My favorite is Boudoir, which one would you pick? Tell me in the comments!

  19. Thanks you Vic! I think it's my kind of lighting - a led light shining down directly at the nails. Also, I use a very low f/stop (usually around 2.8) which enhances it I think.
