Cirque X Nordstrom Pop-In Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a special Cirque collection to share with you. This collection is exclusive to Nordstrom as part of their Pop-In shop series of pop up shops that launches tomorrow March 20th over at In addition to these being available on the Nordstrom website they will also be available in 8 Nordstrom retail locations (there is a list for you at the end of the post)

The collection is exclusive to Nordstrom and is a one and done kinda deal, there will be no restocks. What that means is if you want any of these you best run over there tomorrow and grab them while you can! The theme of the collection is Magic Hour and there are 7 polishes in the collection; 3 glitters and 4 neon holos. Check out all the swatches after the jump!

Discotheque is a glitter topper full of silver holographic glitter in various shapes including stars, circles, hex and squares. The formula was great, it is absolutely packed with glitter and very easy to get onto the nail with no fishing. I used 1 coat over Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris for the photos below.


Electric Sky is several different sizes of white star glitter along with small iridescent hex and bar glitter all in a clear base. This is my favorite of the glitters, it's probably one of the best star glitter polishes I have. Sometimes shapes like these can be a pain but this one required no fishing and very minimal glitter placement. You do have to shift around the starts to where you want them on the nail but it's not like they are hard to actually get out of the bottle. I used 1 coat over OPI The Berry Thought Of You for the photos below.

 Flash is a neon green holo. This is my favorite of the entire collection, it is SO neon and the holo is much better in person (photographing it was not easy). The formula was great, it was a good consistency with good opacity. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

Phosphors is white triangle, hex and bar glitter topper. I feel like I have a few glitters similar to this, but nothing with triangles! The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and the glitter was easy to get out of the bottle and onto the nail. I used 1 coat over OPI I STOP for Red.


Plur is a neon pink holo. Please excuse the slight lower quality of the photos for this one, my regular camera couldn't handle all the awesome so I had to use my photo to accurately capture the color! The holo is stronger and much better in person with this one. The formula was great, it was easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Sun Dog is a bright tangerine orange holo. Like the others this was much more holo in person than it translate in photos. The formula was great, easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Twilight is a bright blue holo. Just like the other holos its much better in real life! The formula again was fantastic with easy application and good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

    Not at any Nordstroms in NY? That's surprising given Cirque is out of Brooklyn! But I suppose that also makes it more accessible for NY residents like me

  2. Some really nice colors/glitters in this collection

  3. Gorgeous colors and fun glitters!

  4. This collection is amazing! Love the colors and look at all of that holo! To bad there aren't any Nordstroms in Toronto yet :(

  5. Ah, it's good to live in Seattle.

  6. It looks like just the neon orange is available online at this point, $13.00!

  7. You were right, you had to buy them first thing in the morning! I looked at them at 8am and thought about getting the neon pink and now at 6pm all of the colors are sold out! The glitters are still online though. Beautiful swatches. Love all of the colors. Thanks for sharing.

  8. the neons should be restocked in a day or two!

  9. This is a Nordstrom exclusive collection. You can't get it anywhere else. You can try calling the stores listed above or buy it at

    ...did you read my comment?

  11. Of course I did. Hence the reply. I was referring to the fact you said that Cirque was out of Brooklyn. You can't get it thru them as it's a Nordstrom exclusive. I was just trying to be helpful in pointing that out so you didn't waste your time trying to reach them directly.

    My point is that I was surprised it's not available at any Nordstroms in NEW YORK. Not sure what you're not getting.

  13. Well, there aren't any Nordstrom stores at all in New York, so you'd never find it in a store that doesn't exist. Not sure what YOU don't understand. My initial response to you was to clarify that, and be helpful, but you're clearly not getting it.

  14. Florence McPartlandMay 7, 2015 at 11:39 AM

    There actually are. Smh

  15. Can both of you stop please, there is no point to this back and forth. I don't want it in my comments. Thanks :)

  16. There are only Nordstrom Rack stores in New York, which are discount stores. They do not have the same merchandise that the regular full line Nordstrom stores carry. You are ridiculously rude, by the way. Don't worry, I'm done arguing about absolutely nothing with you.

  17. I never meant to start an argument of any kind. Literally only wanted to help! Sorry that she decided to turn ugly on your post.
