Cirque ~ Epoch



Cirque ~ Epoch
Teal to blue and purple multichrome - shimmery

It went well with the flakies over a duochromatic polish, so I’m going to try that again today.

I started out with Epoch from Cirque. It’s been sitting in the box for a while, so today it’ll shine. It had separated quite a lot but it was easy to shake it all up and mix it together again. It took two easy coats to make this opaque and the drying time between the layers is pretty good. The colour shift isn’t the strongest on the scene, but yeah -  it’s there.

Here it is, two coats and no topcoat:


This picture shows exactly what I’m looking at in real life too.


I really like the teal in this polish.


I paired it up with a flakie from Maybelline’s Colorama collection called Ruby Rays. It’s an orange to green flakie in a orange tinted base. I painted a line of random white dots on my nails – also to show that the base of Ruby Ray actually colours a little bit.

So here is one coat of Ruby Ray over Epoch.


The tinted base changes the colour shift a bit and also mutes it a little. But honestly: I like this anyway.

  
Number of coats:2
Drying time: Relatively fast
Finish: Duochromatic
Overall impression: I like the quality. I would have loved the colour shift to be more in your face, but that’s probably just me :D
Buy again: No, probably not

  3. nice duochrome polish, I like the opacity of it. So Colorama flakies are the best flakies for me forever :) I had the same Ruby rays and Pink pinata, and this polishes are really gorgeous over anything :)
