Cirque Colors Kontiki Collection Swatches & Review + Giveaway!

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! Today I have the new Kontiki Collection from Cirque to share with you! Not only do I have swatches of the collection but I also have a giveaway for a set, make sure you read until the end of the post to enter to win! The Kontiki Collection is a trio of summer inspired shimmers. These types of shimmers are my favorite because the shimmer it multichomatic and the color shifts depending on the lighting and the angle of your hand. Check out all the swatches and make sure to enter the giveaway after the jump!

Dear Dahlia is a hot pink jelly with multi-dimensional shimmer. The shimmer tends to lean gold in the sun and more green in the shade. The formula was good, it is a little sheer but it builds easily. Depending on your polishing style you could get this opaque in 2 coats, I used 3 for the photos below.

Midsummer Night is a cobalt blue jelly with multi-dimensional shimmer. This is my favorite of the trio...cobalt blue is a favorite of mine, when you add in awesome shimmer I really can't resist. The shimmer was most red/orange in the sun and in the shade it had a bit of a golden green shift. The formula was good, it was a little patchy on the first coat but it evened out with the 2nd coat. I used 3 coats for full opacity. This did dry a little matte so you'll need a top coat to get it nice and glossy!

Thicker Than Water is a green leaning turquoise jelly with multi-dimensional shimmer. The shimmer leans mostly green in the sun and shifted a little bit towards gold in the shade. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and the most opaque of the bunch. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

  1. Awww... It sucks that most polish brands have decided to stop shipping to Brazil. :-(

    The colors are very, very pretty. Shame on you, Cirque and Correios (mail).

  2. That cobalt blue is really something else! I too am a sucker for colors like these especially when they have a jelly finish :)

  3. It's not Cirque's fault that the mail to Brazil isn't reliable. Don't shame them for it.

  4. Gorgeous swatches Jen, you really did them justice! Midsummer Night is my favorite, too :D!

  5. I'm pretty aware of how terrible the Brazilian mailing system is. The whole Cirque shaming was a mere act of frustration. I apologise if it's offended you or anyone else.

  6. That cobalt blue is beautiful! Very pretty swatches

  7. Nice collection. Dear Dahlia is lovely :-)

  8. These are just so perfect!!!!! The more swatches I see the more I wish I had more nails to wear mine MEOW!!!!! They are just so uniquely beautiful.

  9. lol we need MOAR NAILS! I can't wait to see them on you!

  10. Cirque does so much gorgeousness. And jellies always appeal to me - so squishy and delicious!

  11. I can't even express how much I'm loving these!

  12. I love this collection! wish me luck! :) Thanks for the chance! :D

  13. thank you so much :)
