Cirque Colors - Pop-In @ Nordstrom, "Poolside" Collection: Swatches, Review, & Nail Art

press sample

Hello, all! I have another amazing Cirque Colors Pop-in @ Nordstrom collection to share with you today! This month's Pop-in collection is called "Poolside" so Cirque has curated a fabulous collection of polishes worthy of being worth while soaking up the sun by the water. Think luxe pool parties, private cabanas and classic glam. This set of shades is available exclusively from select Nordstrom stores (and online) through June 28th.

Monte Carlo is a fantastic cornflower blue creme and I'm honestly obsessed with this color. It is in my opinion, the perfect blue for spring/summer and looks great on everyone. As with all Cirque cremes, the formula on this was absolute perfection and while 2 coats would have been plenty, I've shown 3 easy coats here.

Santorini is a stunning cobalt blue creme with that perfect Cirque formula we're so used to. This hue of blue is another favorite of mine and great for all seasons but especially lovely for summer. I think I need a swim suit in this color! Shown is 2 super easy coats.

Rita is a tomato red crelly with another great formula. This such a sassy yet sophisticated red and the lighter hue gives it a more youthful and summery effect. Shown is 3 breezy coats.

I did some simple striped nail art with the 3 cremes of the collection - I really like the simplicity of these!

Summer Soiree is the first glitter polish of this collection and is a topper with pink and red bar and micro glitter. I honestly wasn't sure how I'd feel about this one but once it was on the nail it was really lovely and fun. I've shown it over Rita, but I could see this paired over white or blue for a festive Fourth of July look!

Julep is a soft emerald green creme with silver holographic shimmer. The first coat was a little sheer and I wasn't sure how opaque it would be, but 2 coats was practically perfect and a 3rd coat made for a flawless finish. So pretty!

Cabana Capri is soft sky blue creme with the same holographic shimmer as Julep and just as stunning. It has the same build-able easy opacity and shown is 3 coats (though 2 would have been just fine as well!).

I used Monte Carlo, Santorini, Julep, and Cabana Capri for my final nail art look and I was inspired by the tiles you so often see in pools. I love how these turned out!

Overall, I am once again impressed by Cirque! Not only are all these polishes beautiful, their formulas are great and super easy to work with. They all fit nicely into the "poolside" theme and they feel very chic and sophisticated.
