Cirque- Luminous Owl [Swatch]

Cirque- Luminous Owl is from the Spring 2014 collection called Heritage.  I've previously swatched Panacea, a vibrant chartreuse, from the same collection, here.

Luminous Owl is a dusty, pink-leaning coral polish with a linear holographic finish.  In some lights, the overall color is more like a dusty rose than a coral.

Artificial light, two coats:

Somehow I bounced the flash in a way that got the holo-ness to show up inside! Rainbows!

Window-filtered daylight:

Outside, shade:

This is super wearable, and I don't have another holographic polish like it!


Formula: It is slightly thicker and a little more opaque than Panacea, but also does not self-level quite as well. It goes on pretty smoothly, but I had to use thicker coats than I was comfortable with due to the viscosity. I didn't get any bubbling though! You could almost wear this at one coat- it is that opaque.  I used two for swatches.

What do you think?
