Cirque Colors Metropolis Shades for November [Swatch] [Nail Art] [Review]

Hey everyone! How was your weekend?

Today I have Cirque Colors' two new Metropolis shades for the month of November to show you! The Metropolis collection is a series of creme finishes inspired by New York City, with new permanent shades being released each month.

This month, they are delicious neutrals!

First is Cirque Colors- Topless in Times Square:

Topless in Times Square is a soft beige-nude with a slight pink undertone. It's a little darker than my pictures show. It's just one of those shades that gets washed out easily unless you underexpose the photo.

Artificial light, two coats:

Formuala: It's really nice! It has that lovely crelly texture paired with high pigmentation that I've come to expect from Cirque cremes. It goes on easily, self-levels, and is opaque in two coats!

Second, here is Cirque Colors- Glitterati:

Glitterati is a deeper brown-leaning taupe. There's a lot of grey in this brown, and it's absolutely beautiful and difficult to describe. It almost looks chocolatey, with a hint of a cool or purple undertone. A very chic-looking color, I think!

Artificial light, two coats:

Formuala: It's very nice! Pigmented, very self-leveling, and easily opaque in two coats (nearly opaque in one). It also dries down quickly and has a very shiny finish naturally- although I've shown these with top coat.

A minor thing to note about this one is it dries a shade or two darker than liquid bottle color. 

Overall: I love these two! Both look really nice on my skin tone, I think, and the formulas were pretty flawless! Not much else to say!

Both also watermarble "like a dream," (as it were) by the way. Although they are not thin-textured, they are just perfect at spreading in the water, and you can get many, many concentric rings before you have to stop. Seriously so satisfying!

I'm still wearing this manicure as you're reading this, and I have to say that these two polishes are so refreshing and palate-cleansing!
