A shade of the dramatic, where different is all there is.

China Glaze’s Cirque du Soleil Collection feat. “It’s a Trap-Eze!”

China Glaze’s Cirque du Soleil collection has been available in the US for a little while, but just recently hit the shelves in Canada.

There are a lot of beautiful colours in this collection and they aren’t limiting this winter collection to muted or classic winter shades.  They’ve really gone out of their way to add some very fun and bright shades to help you cure the winter blues.

I was hoping to get my hands on Creative Fantasy, Running in Circles and It’s a Trap-Eze!  But out of the two Sally Beauty Supply stores I went to, neither of them had any of the three shades out on display.  Only when I asked, was I lucky enough to find out that they had some “It’s a Trap-Eze!” tucked away in the back.  Not sure why that was the case, but I was glad I asked nonetheless.

So,  I wanted to share with you this very unique nail polish that I’ve just added to my collection.

It’s a Trap-Eze! reminds me of confetti, frosting and angel food cake all at the same time.  This nail polish truly looks delicious!

It is made up of medium and small sized hexagon shaped glitters in a variety of fun, bright colours that are floating in a creamy, milky base.

This is what two coats looks like:

The creamy soft coloured base makes this mani perfect for winter and the holidays!

If my experience is any indication, this polish might be a hard polish to get in store and you might need to order it on-line if you want to ensure you don’t miss out.  If any one knows of any dupes to this, please be sure to comment below!

As for the formula, It’s a Trap-Eze! glides on very easily and you don’t have to fuss with the glitter at all to get an even distribution.  My only complaint with this polish is that I experienced minor chips along my tips after just a day and a half.  Within 3 days, almost every nail showed signs of wear.  So although, I love the polish, I wish it held up to the elements better.  That won’t stop me from wearing this unique polish though, it is just too fun to keep on a shelf.

Did you pick up any of these limited edition polishes from the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil collection?

    • Honestly, one of my favourite things about nail polish is the cute and clever names they come up with! China Glaze had some especially adorable names with their Magnetix collection. They always make me smile too!

      • I guess in the age of creative product names and catching brand logos, everyone is trying to come up with a fancy came that’s all customers are gonna love. 🙂
        I think it’s a smart tactic 😀

  4. oohhh this is gorgeous, it looks just like my Birthday nails I posted Sat. 😀 love em!

    • I absolutely adore this polish by China Glaze. Makes me happy! I just wish it was more chip-resistant…then it would make me even happier!

      Your birthday nails certainly look similar, more of a grey base though. The jelly formula probably would make it wear better though? Or at least that is my experience with jelly polishes, they seem to be more resilient and last much longer.

      • It really did. yes it was more of a gray base. but they are both stunning, love it!!

        December 26, 2012 at 11:52 am

        • Yep, I can’t think of anything more fun than confetti nails!
