Cirque Kontiki Collection

Cirque The Kontiki Collection for summer 2014 features three new limited edition lacquers.

This collection, which launches August 5th on Cirque’s site (also see their stockists page), features shades reminiscent of hot summer days and long summer nights. Each shade has a vivid jelly formula, and features incredible color-shifting shimmer.

Because these are jellies, and I like my jellies to be as opaque as humanly possible, I used three coats for each shade to build up the opacity and cover my nail lines. You could use two coats though if you don’t need them as opaque as I do.

Cirque Kontiki Collection-2

Cirque Dear Dahlia

Dear Dahlia

Dear Dahlia is a hot pink jelly with color-shifting shimmer. The shimmer is absolutely incredible in this one! It’s mostly heavy green and gold and it’s stunning and unique.

Cirque Thicker Than Water

Thicker Than Water

Thicker Than Water is a turquoise jelly with color-shifting shimmer. I see lots of gold and green shimmer in this one and it’s really pretty. I love the green base shade and the shimmer makes it very unique.

Cirque Midsummer Night

Midsummer Night

Midsummer Night is a cobalt blue jelly with color-shifting shimmer. Wow! The super intense base shade mixed with the heavy red/pink shimmer is amazing! This glows and it’s really beautiful.

Well, Cirque has done it again! They’ve created another set of unique, amazing shades that I am sure many people will be lusting over. Which one is your favorite?
