Cirque Baptisia




So far, my Saturday has gone by in a blur because I have been cleaning and getting my place ready for my parents’ arrival. I haven’t seen my mom in over a year so I’m super excited that they are coming for the holidays and for the arrival of my nephew. I can’t wait for all of them to get here later next week! I hope that work tomorrow is slow so that I can get a few posts written and scheduled because I think I’m going to be way too busy to write up any posts for the next week or so. Luckily, I have a lot of swatches done and edited so now all I have to do is write up the post and schedule it.  Personally, I find that writing the post is the hardest part of the whole process, and that is what usually takes the longest for me. The polish I have for you today is the lovely Cirque Baptisia from the newest Cirque collection: Alchemy.

Cirque Baptisia 1Cirque Baptisia 2Cirque Baptisia is called a “shimmery midnight indigo” and I find that is a good description. It’s definitely one of those blurple-type colors that can look different depending on the angle. The formula on this polish seemed a little thin at first, but it definitely built up nicely. Since the finish on this polish was a little dull, I applied a coat of Seche to make it nice and shiny.

This gorgeous polish was a gift from the always awesome Amy from The Fancy Side. She recently moved from Kansas to NYC so she had the awesome opportunity to pick these up in person and she generously snagged some lovely presents. Amy has a review for the entire Alchemy Collection on her blog, so make sure that you check it out here. This was my very first Cirque polish and I kind of want to punch Amy for making me want the whole collection now. Let me know what you think of Baptisia! Are you a Cirque fan? What other pretties from the brand can you recommend? Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
