China Glaze Cirque du Soliel: Worlds Away Swatches/Review

I am so excited to have these swatches for you guys! China Glaze really outdid themselves here and these polishes are amazing! Before we start, I want to state that a couple of these polishes seem to have neon pigment in them, so they were frustrating to capture correctly. I will mention which shades are not totally accurate. Let's go! :)

Escaping Reality is a neon raspberry pink shade and one that did not photograph quite right. It's a bit more washed out here than it is in person. Very bright and happy color!


Whirled Away is a black and white glitter topcoat. I like what China Glaze is doing here! This is two coats over Escaping Reality, but I do wish that I got more glitter with each coat; it was especially hard to get the white hexes out of the bottle.


Hanging in the Balance is a GORGEOUS shade of blue which unfortunately looks nothing like my swatch, but this was the best I could get. This is an obscure reference, but it's very close to Denny Hamlin blue!


Creative Fantasy is a jelly-like neon purple that is pretty accurate to this photo. Love, love, love.


Igniting Love... whew! This is a sexy red! It reminds me of the color of a fresh red pepper.


Get Carried Away is a glitter polish with a slightly tinted base. I layered it over Igniting Love so that you could see all the variations of glitter in it.


Bend Over Backwards is a reddish orange shimmer, like Cranberry Splash from the Holiday Joy collection, but more orange-toned.


Running in Circles is a grass green shimmer. I can't stop thinking of St. Patrick's Day when I look at this one! 


Surreal Appeal is another neon-ish shade, this time in a pinkish-coral. My favorite of the two pinks.


It's a Trap-eze! is going to be the most popular polish from this collection, hands down. This is a light blue base packed with multi-colored glitter, reminiscent of recent indie polish trends.


Def Defying is one of the so-ugly-it's-pretty kind of shades. This yellowy-lime green is definitely unique in my collection.


Water You Waiting For is an amazing blue glitter polish with so much depth! I'm a sucker for blue and the blues in this collection definitely delivered!


The formula on this collection as a whole was really good. I used two coats for all of these swatches. The Cirque du Soliel collection will be released at the beginning of December and will be available at retailers such as Sally Beauty and Ulta. My top picks are Hanging in the Balance and It's a Trap-eze! Which ones caught your eye?

  10. Def Defying is so un-Christmasy. It's a weird color in this collection, but a must-have for me. Must get and rock when spring comes.

  12. I picked up the glitters and love them all. I layered Whirled Away over a dusty coral pink and it is such a cute mani. It looks artsy but really isn't. I had the same troubel with getting the larger white hexes out of the bottle and they had to be placed on the nail. In the store, I was like meh, when I saw the cremes but after seeing your swatches, I want them all! That green is so pretty and the blue one too. I can't decide between the pinks, eek you are wreeking havoc on my wallet!
