Cirque Colors The Warby Parker Collection for Pop-In @ Nordstrom: Swatches and Review




Provided for Review
Hi everyone! I have been away for a while, longer than I intended. After returning from my trip, I got crazy busy playing catch up at work and this is the first chance I have had to finish a blog post. But I have an awesome set of polishes to share with you today, as well as a ton of other posts in the works, so here we go. 

Continuing with Cirque Colors and their collaboration with Pop-In @ Nordstrom, today I have The Warby Parker Collection. This is a five polish set inspired by the hues and aesthetics of Warby Parker, a designer eye-wear company that is known for their stylish eye-wear and for their "buy a pair, give a pair" program

My own experiences with Warby Parker have been nothing but great so I was excited to see polishes inspired by this brand. The Cirque Colors in this collection very much fits the colors that you would find in Warby Parker's shop. I love the cool tones and sleek urban feel of the colors as well as the easy application and formula that I have come to expect from Cirque Colors. No issues to mention either. 

The Warby Parker Collection is a limited edition collection, exclusive to Nordstrom Pop-In. They are available currently on Nordstrom.com (as well as the stores listed below) until September 6th. To purchase other collections of Cirque Colors, check out their web-shop as well as their Facebook and Instagram for other sneak peaks. 

Cirque Colors Big Sur
Two coats
Bright cyan blue with pink shimmer
A gorgeous blue polish! The pink shimmer is a nice contrast though it's more subtle in low lighting. 



Cirque Colors City Lights
Two coats
Dove white linear holographic
A fresh and softened white shade, great for layering or to wear as is. The holo flame will be harder to see but I expected that considering it's a pale white holo.



(Direct Sunlight) 


Cirque Colors Fear and Loathing in New York 
Two coats
Slate gray linear holographic
That name, it's great right? It invokes that grittiness that New York can feel like sometimes. Nice linear holo flame as well, a bit more prominent here, with it's darker color, than in City Lights. 



(Direct Sunlight) 


Cirque Colors Greenwich
Two coats
Pale blue creme with gold micr-flake shimmer.
Gold in blue is always a classic combination and this is light and pretty take on that. The flakes are so lovely in the creamy blue. This will be streaky with the first coat but it will self level with that second coat.



Cirque Colors Iconoclast 
Layered over Cirque Colors City Lights
Clear base with black and white glitter and a dash of holo and iridescence. 
I have yet to meet a black and white glitter mix that I didn't like and this is one is especially nice. You get a nice layer of coverage with one coat and the holo sparks give it a bit more visual interest. 



Cirque Colors Iconoclast 
Layered over Cirque Colors Santorini
The black and white pop like crazy aganist the bold blue base. Perrrrfect pairing.
