China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away - Pt.2 Shimmer & Glitters

Today is part 2 of my China Glaze Cirque posts.  Yesterday it was the creme's, but today it's the sparklys. 

Running In Circles - 2 coats, no top coat.  A shimmery emerald green.  A bit brighter than I thought it would be.  My sister wants this one soooooooo bad. 

It's A Trap-Eze! - 3 coats with top coat.  A sheer milky white base packed with a TON of hex & dot glitter.  There's blue, green, fuchsia, yellow, silver, white, and pink.  I think you would definitely need a coat of Gelous over this if glitter pieces annoy you, otherwise it's ok without it.  I noticed in my original pictures of this that I bumped a nail & took a huge chunk of it off, so I had to reswatch. 

Now rather than use Whirled Away alone, I layered it over the cremes that I showed yesterday. 

Whirled Away over Escaping Reality. 

Whirled Away over Def Defying

Whirled Away over Surreal Appeal

Out of the 3, I think Whirled Away was my least favorite.  It's a clear base with large white hex, medium black hex, & black bar matte glitters.  I had a difficult time getting glitter to transfer onto the nail, so I had to kinda pat & brush it on. 

I did have a bubbling issue with Whirled Away over Def Defying, but that was only because(and I find this funny) I had to help my neighbor get her cat out of my tree.  Her daughter ran in my house & into my office looking for a ladder & I go outside to see my shorter(than me) tiny Italian neighbor carrying a ladder and asking me to hold it while she climbs up.  As she climbs down from grabbing the cat, it jumps out of her arms and she freaks out.  I laughed so hard. 

~ Note: These polishes were sent to review for my 100% honest opinion.


  1. love!! the emerald green is perfect for the holidays!! xo

  2. Awesome story! That green is pure amazing!!!! Everyone is showing Trap-Eze so I am so happy to see a good swatch of that one. I'm not feeling the black and white either - looks like a pain.
