Let's take a closer look!
The Cirque Colors x International Playground set consists of 3 polishes: Rococco (a gold foil holographic), Martinique (a moss green creme) and Carpe Diem (a white creme). Also included are nail stencils created by You Polish. I have played around a bit with the stencils but haven't them work for me yet. The stencils are very large, I can cut one in half and use it for 2 nails so that's a great value, but they are also very sticky so I'll have to try them again on a day old mani I think, to be sure I don't lift the polish underneath.
To create this look, I started by painting both Rococco and Martinique. I used 2 coats of both, Martinique went on my pinky and index and Rococco on the other 2 nails. After Rococco dried I grabbed a dotting tool in a medium size and something to put some polish on (the metal backing of a stamping plate is my favorite). Using Carpe Diem I dotted little flowers on my nails, and using Martinique I created the centers. Because the flowers looked a bit.. floaty? I used some more Carpe Diem to add a few extra dots in between them.
The Cirque Colors x International Playground set is perfect to create various nail art looks, if you need more inspiration check out these amazing blogs: Very Emily, The Polishing Life, Wondrously Polished, Amandalandish.
Because this set was created to celebrate the 5-year anniversary of International playground selling Cirque Colors, it's available exclusively in-store and online at www.internationalplayground.com.
