Cirque Arcus Collection Glitters

The Cirque Arcus collection is a delightfully decadent mix of glitters, shimmers, metallics, and holos. I've already shown you one of the glitters, Helios, in a nail art look, and today I have swatches of the rest of the glitters from the collection to share with you. Read on and let me know which ones you're loving in the comments!

Electric Circus is a mix of small neon glitters in red, green, and blue shades. Doesn't it look like falling confetti? Or a rainbow snowfall? The glitter applied evenly and with nice density. I've shown it here over Zoya Neely but this would also look gorgeous over a light neutral like white or cream.

Kaleidoscope is hands down my favorite of this bunch and possibly one of my favorite Cirque polishes ever! The glitter mix in this polish is just such perfection. It has all the colors of the rainbow plus white, in various shapes and sizes. Definitely the cutest rainbow glitter topper I've seen. I've layered it over a custom polish; you could achieve a similar look with OPI My Vampire is Buff.

Le Invader is a pixely metallic square glitter mix in rainbow colors. Those of you with an insatiable hunger for square glitter will love it! The glitters are smaller so this polish is close to the confetti look you're used to with an angular twist. Shown over OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay.

Lullaby is another one of my favorites. This delicate mix of pastel satin glitters is beautiful and refined. It's a great work appropriate glitter, I think -- just imagine it layered over a nude! I chose to go for something a little more colorful and used OPI Mermaid's Tears as my base. Isn't it lovely? There are stars in this polish too but I didn't end up with any in my swatch.

Magic Hour is an iridescent glitter topper with hexes, bars, squares, and microglitters. This one looks best over dark shades so I layered it over Duri Nightfall. This is just one coat. It was easy to work with and definitely made the manicure look magical!

Which ones are you loving? Are you a Kaleidoscope fanatic like me?

Cirque polishes are available at and via these stockists. You can also keep up with the brand on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
