Cirque Kabocha & Neko


It's been wayyyy too long! Uni is so close to being finished I can almost taste it!

Today I've got the two polishes from Cirque's All Hallows Eve collection. I think she's sold out on her website, but definitely try to find somewhere where you can pick them up. I think the best bet would be to go and try and win a giveaway, you can keep up to date with giveaways through Cirque's Facebook.

Kabocha & Neko in front of a few other Cirque polishes

They are such gorgeous colours! Kabocha (Japanese for pumpkin), looks exactly like what it's name says. An amazing pumpkin orange that glows in the dark! I didn't manage to get any pictures of it glowing in the dark because I think all the glowing sediment sunk down to the bottom and I forgot to rest it upside down :(

Neko is a black glitter that's made to be worn with Kabocha or with another polish. I am completely in love with this glitter! They look like little shards of paper or something haha. The amazing thing about Neko and Kabocha together is that you can see the glitter when Kabocha glows in the dark! For this formula, even though it's pretty dense, a dabbing technique would be best to distribute the glitter the way you want it. On my index finger I've dabbed Neko and the rest are just normal.

I highly recommend these polishes to everyone! The formula was amazing for both, Kabocha is a jelly so it's quite sheer (the pictures have three coats and you can still see my nail line a little bit) and the glow sediment makes it dry matte so it dries quite quickly. I've heard that Cirque polishes are supposed to smell like lavender while they're drying? I didn't really notice any different smells, although I wasn't looking out for it that much.

The rest of the Cirque polishes I got will have to be reswatched when I get my good camera I think. My camera at the moment couldn't handle their glitteryness! I've got some pictures of the Australian indie polish lady Gloss 'n Sparkle banked that I will show you this weekend before my exam on Monday!

See you next time!


NOTD: Neon Skittle Leopard

Hi guys!

It's been so long since I've posted! Unfortunately uni has been kicking my ass, soooo many assignments! I hate how they have them all due in the same week! Although today I handed in my last assignment FOREVER! Feeling a little nostalgic, but probably not for long because now I've got my exams haha

So to cheer myself up I decided to do a neon leopard skittle! This was using the famous Konad m57 plate, the problem with these is that my nails are too wide! Luckily you can't really tell here that I had to use a small paintbrush and paint the sides. I ordered some Llarowe XL plates which are so much bigger than the Konad plates, so hopefully I'll have more luck with those.

For this I used:
- OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls
- Kleancolor Neon Aqua
- China Glaze Hang Ten Toes
- China Glaze Orange You Hot?
- China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard
- China Glaze Sun-kissed

I just love how fun this look is! The only problem is that in the stamping, the neons came out looking like pastels. At least both neon and pastel are in at the moment, so either are on trend haha

I'm in the process of cropping my massive amount of indie swatches, unfortunately until I get my good camera (yay for a graduation present!), I'm using the camera on my phone. It's oddly better quality then my normal digital camera, but for some of these indies I can't capture how truly awesome they are. So I think I'll either hold off on posting them, or re-swatching them once I get my camera.

See you next time!
