I am such a huge fan of Cirque de Soleil, I remember I watched my first live show back when I was in high school, my father had received a pair of free tickets from work and offered to take me :D. It was an amazing experience and I’ve been back several times when they come around to Melbourne.
Something I love about OPI are the names they give their polishes, both clever and comical 🙂 The polishes in this collection are all pretty sheer, to achieve the pigmentation below I required 3 coats for each. I think however that was the point of this collection since it is part of the Soft Shades series.
In fact some of these colours would work great as a top coat for other colours. As always, no top coat was used. The formula was great for some, below average for others.
Step Right Up!
A very soft light pink nude, it’s not an overly unique shade but it does have a lovely milkiness to it, I found it to really compliment my own skin tone.
So Many Clowns… So Little Time
A slightly muted light pink, similar to Step Right Up! but sheering with a hint of peach in it. I found the formula for this particular polish to be difficult to work with, you can already see in swatches that it appears a bit streaky.
I Juggle… Men
A lightly tinted pink polish with pink iridescent flecks, gorgeous! You can see how pretty the flecks are in this magnified swatch.
This would be amazing as a top coat for a more pigmented polish, but it does need several coats, this polish was very sheer.
In the Spot-light Pink
A tinted pink polish, this one was incredibly sheer that I was slightly concerned the tinted colour wouldn’t show up on camera. Fortunately it did! It’s very subtle, very everyday friendly, but even for everyday I would want to use a polish that showed up more and had a bigger impact.
Not a bad collection this time by OPI, but I’ve seen better. If you’re a sheer pink sort of person, this is the collection for you. But if you want something more defined, such as nude pinks or solid colours, keep moving!
