Cirque Colors x Warby Parker Pop-In Polishes (3) [Swatch] [Review]




Heya nail people! Happy weekend!

Today I have swatches of the blues in the new Cirque Colors Nordstrom Pop-in collection in collaboration with Warby Parker! (Bottle shots here!) You'll also get to see how the fun glitter topper, Iconoclast, looks layered over each one up close!





Here we go!

First, here is the lovely Cirque Colors- Greenwich:


Greenwich is a pale, green-leaning light blue- maybe seafoam? It has small, golden flecks that are subtle on the nail, but add a surprising little twist when you notice them.

This looks a little warm toned (greener) on the nail than in the bottle.

Artificial light, two coats:




Formula: It has a thick viscosity, but is pigmented and actually quite workable for a color this pale! It goes on pretty smoothly and self-levels. Opaque in two coats!

Here is the topper in the set, Cirque Colors- Iconoclast:



Iconoclast is a glitter topper that is mostly full of various sizes of black and white hexes, but there are also holographic glitters that give a wonderful flash!

One coat of Iconoclast layered over Greenwich:



Next, this is Cirque Colors- Big Sur:



Big Sur is a medium blue with fine magenta shimmer. Sometimes it seems like there's a smattering of fine gold-orange shimmer too, but I only notice that in the bottle under close scrutiny!

This one looks slightly cooler toned (more purple) on the nail as opposed to liquid bottle state.

Artificial light, two coats:




One coat of Iconoclast over Big Sur:


Formula: It's similarly thick and pigmented like Greenwich! It goes on even more smoothly. Super nice, and opaque in two easy coats!

Overall, I'm super impressed with the formulations and pigmentation of these two blues! I was wholly expecting Greenwich to be a pain based on color alone, but it wasn't! These are both blues that I'll definitely enjoy wearing, and both are actually unique to my collection (which is hard to do these days!)

As for the glitter topper, it grew on me! I'm not a super fan of black and white glitter toppers normally, but the holo pieces in Iconoclast really help it out. There are cobalt hexes that are really gorgeous in there- and really tie in with the Warby Parker color scheme!

I'll be showing the two grey holos in this collection tomorrow in nail art form, so stay tuned!
