Today's polish is 'DA BOMB'! It's the new collaboration of Cirque and Jeannie Vianney:
"New York, NY (September 25, 2013) – Inspired by the resurgence of rose gold in the fashion world, award-winning jewelry designer, Jeannie Vianney, and popular indie nail brand, Cirque, have teamed up to create a special edition ring and nail polish duo. This eye-catching set exudes luxury and royalty by combining common monarchy symbols through shape and color."
The polish came in a small black box with custom label. Inside was the Croronation shade nicely packed in a black satin pouch.
Each bottle of polish comes with a very cute crown ring:
"True to Jeannie Vianney’s signature style, the rose gold-plated ring is modeled from a piece of lace cast into metal to form a crown shape. The delicate texture lends an air of elegance while the adjustable design accommodates most sizes. To complement the blush hue, Cirque designed a royal purple nail lacquer complete with multidimensional shimmer. The formula features a translucent finish that allows the copper sparkle to peek through while being buildable in 2-3 coats.
The pictures below show the Coronation in direct sunlight which shows the true beauty of this polish..
The colour is beautiful blue-based purple jelly full of warm purple shimmer and gold-copper glitter. The purple shimmer shifts into green and gold shades in certain angles. I've applied two thicker coats which in artificial light looked opaque but as you'll see, third coat was needed. I aplso recommend to layer Coronation over black, blue, purple or red, it will completely transform the polish and you'll only need one coat. It dried quite fast but the glitter caused slightly gritty finish so I would recommend two coats of topcoat or one layer of thick topcoat like Seche Vite.
Ok I love this polish! It is very close to the Max Factor Fantasy Fire except it has that sparkly copper glitter in it. It's very pretty and I'll be putting it in my 'treasures' drawer :) Also the ring is beautiful and you'll probably see it again in the future.
There are just two things that might deter some people from buying - the sheerness of the polish (which on the other hand makes it good for layering) and the price. This set of polish and gold-plated ring is sold for $48. Available now at: http://www.jeannievianney.com or http://www.cirquecolors.com .
