Cirque - The Alchemy Collection

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

I have swatches to share with you from Cirque's recently released Alchemy Collection.  Let's get right to it!  I used no base or top coat for these swatches.

Magnum Opus
A mysterious purple-charcoal with a rainbow holographic finish.


Artificial Light

Artificial Light (Light Box)
Magnum Opus applied really well and was opaque in two coats.

Chain Mail
A cool gunmetal micro-glitter with holographic sparks.


Artificial Light
Chain Mail is in a clear base and is best used as a topper.  Above is three coats on its own.  I decided to layer two coats over Magnum Opus below.

Ica Valley
A golden beige micro-glitter mimicking sand dunes, only sparklier.

I was surprised by how great the coverage was with Ica Valley.  It was fully opaque in two coats.  It's a really gorgeous glitter.

Baptisia
A shimmery midnight indigo.

A golden olive that shifts to grassy green at different angles.

I love the duochrome in this one.  It wasn't hard to capture at all.  This too had a great formula.  It was opaque in two easy coats.

Chrysopoeia
A sunny marigold with a rainbow holographic finish.

This is such a gorgeous and unique polish!!  It took two coats for full opacity.

Arcane Fire
A deep ruby red with multi-faceted gold sparks.

Arcane Fire reminds me of a classic red polish, but with something extra special.  It was fully opaque in two coats and applied well.

Stella
A romantic rose gold micro-glitter

Stella applies really well and gives great coverage in just two coats.  I think this is such a pretty glitter.  I don't have any rose gold glitters that provide full coverage like this one does.

Mink
A chocolate brown with a rainbow holographic finish

Mink is the perfect fall holo!!  I love, love, love it.  It has a great formula and is opaque in two coats.

Vectors
A bold glitter topper made of black glitter in myriad of shapes and sizes

Vectors is such a unique glitter.  I decided to layer it over Revlon Gray Suede.  It applied well and gives good coverage in one coat.  It's packed with glitter.

As always, I'm really impressed with these Cirque polishes.  I love the mixture of colors and finishes in this collection.  For those of you who like to wear season appropriate nail polish, these are all great for this time of year.  My personal favorites: Chain Mail, Ica Valley, Baptisia, Lichen, Arcane Fire and Mink.  I know it's pretty much all of them.

What do you guys think of this collection?  Do you have any favorites?
