October's Amazing Autumn Mani Challenge! Day 4: Night Sky - Cirque's "Tibetan Nights"

Yay! All caught up now!

Day 4 is "night sky" and I HAD TO pick one from my Nail Polish Canada polish prize and go with Cirque's "Tibetan Nights", you'll understand when you see it!!

I can't imagine a polish being a more perfect representation of the Milky Way than this one by Cirque!! If I had known just how stunning it was in real life, I would've bought this polish a LONG time ago!

Cirque Colors is an indie polish maker headed by Annie Pham in NYC. Her polishes are 3-free and cruelty-free. This shade is from the Dark Horse Collection 2012 (her debut collection). Cirque describes this shade as, "a deep blue with micronic-sized glitter suspended in a translucent (jelly) base". The jelly is a very richly pigmented dark blue -- seriously gorgeous! There are teeny sparks of glitter, including silvery bar glitter (which I usually don't like but work SO WELL in this polish).

For this mani I used 3 coats of "Tibetan Nights" and topped with Seche Vite. The formula was remarkably easy to work with and dried fairly quickly for a jelly.

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

Outside, bright daylight (no direct sun).

Kinda hazy sun? Stupid clouds!

I absolutely adore this polish!!! It's so beautiful and is one of those polishes you put on and don't want to take off! I wish I could have captured just how stunning it is! And I think it perfectly represents today's theme of "night sky".

Where to buy?? Cirque Colors has this shade in stock on their website. It is also available from Nail Polish Canada. I checked Harlow & Co and she is presently sold out. Check the Cirque website for international stockists.

NB: I received this polish as part of a giveaway prize from Nail Polish Canada.
