Cirque Colors Polish Review + GIVEAWAY!

When it comes to nail polish, we are (more than) a tad bit obsessed so it takes a LOT for a brand to impress us. When we first encountered Cirque Colors nail lacquer at a blogger event earlier this year, it was love at first sight (come on, look at all that beautiful glitter, how could we not swoon?!).

Cirque is a Brooklyn-based company that hand-mixes and individually hand-pours its luxe polishes. We spoke with founder Annie Pham at the event and were immediately blown away by her passion for her products and her bold experiment with materials and colors that we simply have not seen in other polishes. (Plus, she's super nice, beautiful, and successful - a total gal all around!)

The nail polishes offered by Cirque range from glitters to cremes to shimmers to holographics; there is something that is sure to please every polish lover! We love them all for different reasons, but the one big thing they have in common is that every single polish is a true stunner. We've never received so many nail compliments as when we are wearing our Cirque Colors because they are simply that unique and eye-catching!


You've already heard me rave about Lullaby (which is one of the 5 polishes included in today's giveaway!), but there are so many more Cirque polishes that I'm totally obsessed with! As much as I'm drawn to all of the glitters, the first polish that caught my eye at the event where we discovered Cirque was a gorgeous inky blue creme called NYFW. I recently paired a NYFW mani with a Queen Majesty glitter accent nail for a night out on the town:


In addition to being gorgeous hues, I'm tremendously impressed by the staying power of all of the Cirque polishes. We've all had those moments when you're ready to show off your mani at an important event and it suddenly pops up with all sorts of unseemly chips on Day Two - Cirque consistently remains chip-free longer than any of my other polishes, which is essential for a gal on the go. I'm so glad we were able to meet Annie and learn about her incredible company, because Cirque is really onto something very special!


It's no secret I'm a polish fanatic, but one bald spot in my collection (up until recently!) was holographic polishes. When I discovered all of the gorgeous holo options that Cirque had to offer, it was truly love at first sight. I was introduced to their Burlesque collection at the blogger event and was able to try out Trocadero for my complimentary mani. I was in awe with how light catching the holo effect was, and couldn't stop staring! I was excited to try out some of the other holographic beauties Cirque had to offer, and decided to do a play on a Christmas mani with the vampy Boudoir and an accent nail in the green goddess Josephine.
Holo-day Cirque mani!
 It applied like a dream, and I was able to achieve full coverage in 2 light coats. I'm definitely all about the holo now, and can't wait to add some Cirque glitters to the mix and really glitz it up!

Now, here is the best part: One lucky TSN winner will take home 5 stunning glitters hand-selected by the TSN gals! The prize set includes:
