Review | China Glaze Cirque du Soleil collection

Cirque du Soleil translated as ‘Circus of the sun’ is a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment put together by a Canadian entertainment company. These nail polishes in this review portray the jam packed amazing  shapes all contained in a single nail polish jar.

These nail polishes are from the ‘Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away’ collection from Beauty Bay. The other colours from the same collection are bright and out there and you just have to check out the names! They really do get you in a circus kind of mood.

Here I have two polishes from the collection ‘Whirled Away’ and ‘Get Carried Away’ which are both glitter nail polishes.

 ‘Whirled Away‘ £6.95*
This is a clear polish with monochrome bar and hex glitter shapes in it. Oh yes, I said monochrome which is so in right now! The hex glitter shapes are black and white and the tiny black bars are my favourite out of all the assortments. The polish is a great top coat over a base colour, of which I used a nude but there are many bright colours from the collection that would look popping!!!

This is a sheer black polish with glitter accents that are red, silver and black. I like this, but not too much because of the dark murky polish. It would look great on darker coloured bases like grey, but I tend to wear more nude or light colours. I feel this leaves a slightly sinister finish.

What I love is that the China Glaze polishes are made from china clay, therefore helping to strengthen the nails. I find the quality feels really good as it stays on for a great length of time before any signs of chipping. These are my first China Glaze polishes, and I am totally impressed by the quantity 14ml and appearance of the chunky bottle. The handle is easy to grip and… well I may be a little excited and stating the obvious here 😮 I can see many more China Glaze polishes coming my way haha. These were picked from Beautybay, so if you haven’t checked it out already, you should, and they also sell some American brands which are hard to get hold of here in the UK.

What is your favourite shade, ‘whirled away’ or ‘get carried away’?
