Swatches & Review & Nailart - Cirque Colors The Metropolis Collection February release!

Hi loves! Today I have the newest addition to the Cirque Colors Metropolis collection to show you, each month one or 2 creme shades inspired by New York City are added to this collection. I always love reading up on the inspiration and obviously the perfect cremes are a nice touch as well ;-). Let's take a look at Cirque Colors Doyers!

Cirque Colors Metropolis Doyers


Isn't it pretty?!

Like I said, all colors are inspired by New York City but to me, Doyers didn't ring a bell immediately. But, Google helped me out and informed me Doyers Street is a 200-foot-long street in the heart of China Town. The shade of red pops up a lot so I guess that's the link ^^.

The formula on this shade was a tad thick, though very smooth and self-leveling. It didn't dry particularly glossy, which is why I helped it a bit by using the Essence Gel-look topcoat - doesn't it look plump? 2 coats were barely needed for opacity, 1 coat might be enough on shorter nails.

While I loooove red, people might think it's a bit close to Cirque Colors The Devil Wears Cirque. It isn't a dupe, but yes, there's some resemblance. Emily from Very Emily compared them for you!

To spice it up a bit, I decided to use some Born Pretty Store rhinestones. They came in a little pot and hold 4 different sizes of rhinestones (1.5mm/2mm/3mm/4mm). They are all silver/clear, with a flat back. To apply them I just pushed them down in my wet topcoat. If you want to check them out, you can do so here. I think they look really fancy against that red base!

    Flawless red creme. Those rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch, kind of like diadems on queens.

  15. You've got to love the perfect red nail polish. This one looks like it might be perfect if it wasn't for the thick formula. I really like the way you added the rhinestones too. Very unique placement.
