Cirque Colors Metropolis Shades for September [Swatch][Nail Art]

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!

Today I have some Cirque Colors swatches to share with you! These are the Metropolis collection shades for the month of September.  The Metropolis collection is a series of creme finishes inspired by New York City, with new permanent shades being released each month.

Pretty! Let's get started!

First, here is Cirque Colors- Page Six:

Page Six is a light, neutral-toned dove grey.

Artificial light, two coats:

Formula: It's nice! The viscosity is medium-thin, and applies easily, self-leveling. In general, I prefer cremes slightly thicker than this, but it didn't pool or run away, so I can't complain. Opaque in two easy coats!

Next, Cirque Colors- Deco:

Deco is a softly muted, cool lavender. There's a lot of grey in this one, making it perfect for Fall!

Artificial light, two coats:

Formula: It's a little thicker than Page Six- just the perfect viscosity, in my opinion. It's rich, pigmented, and was basically opaque and leveled at one coat. I did use two for swatches to be safe. Overall, this is pretty perfect!

Finally, here is Cirque Colors- Jane on Jane St:

Jane on Jane St. is a chic, greyed-out muave rose. It has just enough grey in it to avoid pastel territory and really be a nice, refreshing (read: not too dark) shade for Fall! I really love this one!

Artificial light, two coats:

Formula: It's more like Deco than Page Six: medium-thick, but rich and self-leveling. The first coat is even mostly opaque- I could barely make out my nail line. Opaque in two easy coats, and very, very nice to work with!

Here's a look at the watermarble details:

These cremes marble nicely!


Overall, I didn't mention it before, but the dry-down time on all of these cremes is excellent! It actually took me by surprise how fast they dried! Also, you'll have to take my word for it because I used top coat, but all dried very shiny by themselves, which is always a marker of a great quality creme! These are great, and I especially enjoyed wearing Jane on Jane St!
