Hi everyone! Today I have some more polishes from the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away Collection to share with you! I have already reviewed It's A Trap-eze, Water You Waiting For, Def Defying and Whirled Away [HERE]! I'm really excited to get to check out some more of the creme/crelly shades from the collection, as well as a few shimmers and glitters!
First we have China Glaze Hanging In The Balance, a vibrant bright blue crelly (creme-jelly hybrid) that leans more towards the creme side of things. This is two coats with no top coat. I like how bright this is! It's BOLD!
China Glaze Creative Fantasy is a deep, yet bright, purple crelly that dries to a satin matte finish. This is two coats with no top coat, but I still had some visible nail line (VNL) issues. A thin third coat would probably help.
Next is China Glaze Igniting Love, a bright orange-red crelly. This one dries to a shiny finish, but again I had some VNL issues. This is two coats, no top coat. If you love red or even orange shades, you'd probably like this one.
Now we have China Glaze Bend Over Backwards, Igniting Love's shimmery cousin. This could be a one coater, but here I did two for good measure (no top coat). I'm sort of over all of the reds I've been swatching for holiday collections, but this one is a bit more orange and could be really funky. I need to force myself to wear red on my nails more often!
China Glaze Running In Circles is GORGEOUS! This a bright green glass fleck/glitter shade that sort of reminds me of Zoya Apple. The formula on this was really nice and easy to work with. This is two coats with NYC top coat. So bright and pretty...love it for holidays and beyond!
Ending with my least favorite polish I have reviewed in a while. This is China Glaze Get Carried Away. It's a black jelly base with black bars and hexes, silver microglitter and hexes, and red hexes. The formula was thick, lumpy and gross. However, my bottle was really hard to open because there was polish gunked up around the lid. Maybe my bottle leaked a bit in transport and evaporated a bit? Some thinner may fix the issue, but on its own, it was pretty bad and extremely difficult to work with. On top of that, I don't think it's that pretty, but some people may love it! This is two terribly difficult lumpy coats with NYC top coat.
Overall, and aside from Get Carried Away, I like these polishes a lot! I know this collection has been getting a lot of hype because of the "indie-like" glitters and bright colors...and I agree that it is an exciting offering! =) Again, you can see the first part of my China Glaze Cirque du Soleil review [HERE]! China Glaze polishes are available at Sally Beauty and fine beauty supplies, as well as several online retailers such as TransDesign for $3.56 and Head2ToeBeauty for $3.25 each!
