Cirque Colors x Pop-In @ Nordstrom - Vans 50th Anniversary Celebration: Hawaiian Stencil Nail Art Kit

press sample 

Hello again my friends! I hope you're having a great week! Mine is flying right by, so much so that I actually thought today was Wednesday! I've got another set of swatches and nail art to share today using the 3rd and final nail art stencil kit that Cirque Colors has created for the Pop-In @ Nordstrom Vans 50th Anniversary celebration.

This kit contains two more polishes, Midnight Cowboy and Rouge Rockefeller. Both of these were previously released shades but they're not less lovely today than they were then.

Midnight Cowboy is a deep navy blue jelly with loads of pigment and a great formula (as is expected from Cirque). Shown is 2 smooth coats.

Rouge Rockefeller is a very opaque, currant red jelly with a FLAWLESS formula. So lovely! Shown is 2 breezy coats.

The Hawaiian Flower Stencils that come with the kit can be seen below. There are 6 stencils per sheet, and you get one sheet of each flower (so 6 of the index/pinky finger flower, and 6 of the middle/ring flower). I do wish there were more sheets of these included in the set. If you're like me and enjoy adding artwork to all of your nails, 12 stencils will get you one manicure and your two big toes. If you're more of an accent nail gal, then there shouldn't be a problem for you getting several manis out of this kit. That said, the stencils were once again very easy to use and created very crisp and clean lines.

I used the two shades from earlier in the week to help create more contrast in this look and then mattified the final manicure.
This kit, along with the rest of the Pop-In @ Nordstrom exclusives are available from or at 8 in-store locations (check them out here). These are exclusive and limited edition, however, and will only be available from August 5th - September 4.
