Cirque Colors + Nordstrom: Nike Women Pop-In Limited Edition Release


Hey guys! I've got a pretty exciting post to share with you today - a collaboration between NYC based brand Cirque Colors and Nordstrom! Cirque teamed up with this popular department store to bring you some of their best shades, including three limited edition re-releases, for a short period of time. Want to know more?! Keep reading!

A bit more info - Nordstrom is hosting a "pop-in" event until May 24th in select stores (and online) to honor Nike Women, and Cirque is a part of that collaboration with six previously released polishes, three cremes from their ongoing Metropolis Collection and three coveted limited edition shimmers that are no longer available through Cirque's online shop. I've already reviewed the three cremes, but I will give you guys a quick recap - but let's start off with these gorgeous limited edition shades:

Thicker Than Water is a gorgeous turquoise jelly packed with golden shimmer and holographic sparkle. (The golden shimmer almost looks green due to the jelly base!) This polish was originally part of the Kontiki Collection released in 2014 and is now retired, except during this pop-in event! I found the formula to be pretty easy to work with, just like the other shades I have tried from this brand. The first coat was a bit sheer but I had full coverage in two coats - if you have longer nails, you might want to use a third coat to cover any visible nail line! Shown is two coats with top coat.

Coronation is possibly the most well known shade by Cirque, a rich purple jelly packed with color-shifting copper shimmer and holographic sparkle. This polish was originally released as a limited edition shade in 2013, along with a unique designer ring (not included in this limited re-release). If you're like me and you lusted after this shade back in the day but couldn't commit to the $48 USD price tag, then you're in luck! This limited edition polish is part of the pop-in collection and it's only $13 USD! Again, formula was easy to work with and I achieved full coverage in two coats with top coat.

Dear Dahlia is a bright pink jelly packed with lime green shimmer and holographic sparkle. This shade was also part of the Kontiki Collection from 2014! I found that this jelly was a bit more sheer than the other two and required three coats for full coverage, but the formula was easy to work with and the color is so unique and pretty! Shown above is three coats with top coat.

Onto the cremes! I've already reviewed Vigo here - shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

I have also reviewed Sunset Park here - shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

Doyers is a classic red creme that I reviewed back in February, but it's worth repeating that I love this color! It's basically opaque in one coat, and it's my go-to for red cremes now! Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

Again, these six shades will be available until May 24th at the following US Nordstrom locations, as well as online:

  • Downtown Seattle
    500 Pine Street 
    Seattle, WA 98101 
  • Bellevue Square
    100 Bellevue Square 
    Bellevue, WA 98004 
  • San Francisco Centre
    865 Market Street 
    San Francisco, CA 94103 
  • Garden State Plaza
    501 Garden State Plaza 
    Paramus, NJ 07652 
  • Oakbrook Center
    10 Oakbrook Center 
    Oak brook, IL 60523 
  • Tyson's Corner Center
    8075 Tysons Corner Center 
    McLean, VA 22102 

You can read more about this event here. All shades are $13 USD online and in stores. It seems like Coronation is already sold out online, so if you live near one of these stores, I suggest grabbing it up ASAP!

Are you planning to pick up any of these shades? I'd love to know which ones you like best!
