Review & Swatches: Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away inspired collection by China Glaze

Happy Monday!

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving and hope it was filled with fun, family, and of course, food! For those of you who do no celebrate, I hope you had a great day in general! I'm back this week to share with you all some nail polishes from the Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away inspired collection by China Glaze. Here are some photos!

Water You Waiting For is a combination of blue and green glitters in the form of hexes and fine glitters. I had no issues with application and is fully opaque in two coats. I do recommend a good, thick top coat to rid the gritty texture and add shine. 

Hanging In the Balance is a bright blue creme. The formula on this is perfect and opaque in two coats. The pictures don't do any justice, it's much more vibrant in person! This was probably my favorite from the colors I received! 

Creative Fantasy is a dark royal purple that dries to a beautiful rubber-like finish, however; I wasn't a huge fan of this formula. It's a bit streaky and will require a bit of patience during application. The image below was done in three coats.

Igniting Love is a vibrant, tomato red with a slight touch of pink undertones. Formula was excellent and applied nicely in one generous coat.

Get Carried Away is a black jelly base that consists of black and silver glitter, large black, pink, red,and silver hexes, and black bar glitter. You can do three coats for full opacity or use it as a layering glitter, I used one coat over Igniting Love. 

Bend Over Backwards is a reddish shimmer with orange undertones. You can't tell in my photos, but this polish glows and is super vibrant. The formula was excellent only requiring two coats.

To coincide with the 3D release of “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away,” in theatres December 21, 2012, the China Glaze® and Ardell® film-inspired collections will be available the first week of December 2012 at salons and specialty beauty retailers nationwide, including Sally Beauty Supply and ULTA stores. Individual nail polish shades will retail for $7; eyelash styles will retail for $6.

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!
