China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away Swatches, Review Part 2

Here's the rest of the swatches of the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away collection. As I'd mentioned in China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away Swatches and Review Part 1, China Glaze partnered with Paramount Pictures to offer an exclusive collection of nail polishes inspired by the upcoming film, "Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away" in theaters December 21st.

China Glaze features 12 new shades of nail polish for this collection, and this is the first time I've seen China Glaze come up with indie-nail lacquer-esque glitters. I've posted swatches of the first six shades, here are the glitter bombs!

I used two coats of China Glaze It's a Trap-eze over a white creme in the swatches. It's a white cream base with multi-glitter. I don't know if you guys like multi-glitter, but I like white as background for those bright pops of glitter. I wished the base were a jelly instead of a cream, but this is still pretty. I think this is the first time China Glaze mixed glitter in a white creme base. Very reminiscent of indie polishes!

Of course, China Glaze Whirled Away reminds everyone of the original black and white glitter in a clear base, Lynnderella's Connect The Dots. However, the latter are smaller and more dense. With China Glaze Whirled Away, you have to fish out the glitters especially the white ones. I did notice that since Whirled Away has bigger glitters, they are more eye-catching and I would get lots of compliments when I wear it.


China Glaze Water You Waiting For over Hanging in the Balance (sunlight)

These are 2-in-1 swatches of China Glaze Water You Waiting For and Hanging in the Balance. The latter is a beautiful Cerulean blue creme that is such a nice ocean blue. I applied Water You Waiting For on top, a glitter mix of blue, green and purple particles in a light blue base. Makes me want to jump right in!

China Glaze Igniting Love (sunlight)

Igniting Love is a blindingly bright hot tamale creme. It is such a festive color. It's not very unique but for some reason, the opacity of the formula and the bright shade of red make this one of my favorite red shades.

China Glaze Get Carried Away looks great over black, however the glitters are kinda sparse. It's really pretty, though, but I think this looks best over a black creme or any blackish shade.

All in all, I liked some of the shades in this collection, but the glitters were a nice deviation from the usual micro glitter in a clear base that China Glaze usually churns out. I am not super wowed by the new glitters, but they are not ugly either. I actually like Running in Circles the best out of this group, a beautiful cilantro green shimmer that I featured in Part 1 of the swatches. I also like Surreal Appeal, Def Defying, Water You Waiting For, and Whirled Away.
