Requested Comparison: Cirque Colors Coronation and Cult Nails Flushed

As requested, here is a side-by-side comparison between Cirque Colors' "Coronation" (review/pics here) and Cult Nails' "Flushed" (review/pics here). I've never done a side-by-side comparison before!

These 2 colours are very similar but also very different, depending on the lighting -- I took pics under different lighting so you could see for yourself.

Bottle shot (under LED light). Cult Nails (Flushed) on top, Cirque Colors (Coronation) on bottom.
As you can see, Flushed is more blue-leaning purple with shimmer whereas Coronation is more red-purple with shimmer and holographic glitter bits (not jam-packed but they are obvious).

Sorry about the no-cleanup, I did this kinda rushed. :/
Both polishes are purple jelly with pinky/copper shimmer. Coronation is more red-purple with shimmer & the extra holo microglitter. Flushed is more blue-purple with the shimmer (no holo glitter). I used 2 coats of both polishes and Seche Vite for topcoat.

CN= Cult Nails' "Flushed"
CC= Cirque Colors' "Coronation"


Under LED desk lamp.


Indoors, bright daylight (no direct sun), near windows.


Outdoors, bright daylight (no direct sun).


Indoors, kitchen halogen track lighting.


No direct sun pics… the sun was on the other side of the building and I don't have time right now to go run downstairs and around and stuff. Sorry!!

As you can see, they are both similar but not dupes.

Hope this helps!! For more detailed info about each of the polishes, scroll up to the top of this post where there are links to a review (& more pics) of each polish.
