Seche Collage Overlay

My wishful thinking led me into my third Sally Beauty Supply in hopes of finding a couple of rare colours from the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Nail Polish Collection…and although they were sold out in the specific shades I was looking for, just like everywhere else…I saw something I didn’t even know existed.

Seche came out with a limited edition topcoat called “Collage Overlay”.  It’s made up of medium and large sized hexagon glitters and string glitters.  Almost all of the glitter chunks are mainly rose in colour, but there is also the odd large white hexagons as well.  All of them are hugely reflective and make for a very fun and flashy manicure.

It’s so unique looking, I knew I had to add this to my collection.  If you feel the same way, you can pick this up at your local Sally Beauty Supply for $8.99 CAD or $6.49 US, it is currently not available on their website.

Application was easy and you don’t have to worry about getting a good variety of glitter on each nail.  Here you can see one coat of “Collage Overlay” layered over top of “Liquid Vinyl”, a basic black nail polish by Orly.

I’ve absolutely loved this mani ever since I first did it.  It’s so reflective and flashy I can’t help but constantly check out my nails!  What do you think of this new topcoat “Collage Overlay” from Seche?  I think it is perfect for ringing in the New Year!  What will you be wearing on your nails when the ball drops?

I also wanted to let you guys all know that my husband and I are heading out today on our much belated honeymoon and will be gone until the middle of January.  So you won’t see any posts around here for the next couple of weeks, but I look forward to getting caught up with all of you soon.  🙂

So please have a Safe and Happy New Years Eve!

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

Confetti nail polish by China Glaze, Cirque du Soleil collection

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.

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?
