Hello gentle readers.
Here is China Glaze Running in Circles. This is one of the Cirque Du Soleil Collection polishes. Is it my imagination or did the Circue collection kind of appear and disappear as fast? There wasn't a whole lot of excitement over it and that is too bad because there really were some beautiful offerings in that collection. This polish is, in my opinion, one of them. Running in Circles is a very in this year emerald green jelly packed with green and gold glass fleck shimmer.
This swatch is two coats topped with Gelous.
The formula on this is pretty much terrific. It was easy to apply and control, there was no running, pooling, dragging, pulling bald spots or streaky business. Dry time is pretty good.
My one complaint was the brush. It had errant hairs and needed to spend a little time with my scissors. I was not amused.
Am I the only one who thinks that Winter was the wrong time of year for this collection? I know that it had to be released as a movie tie in but, like the Hunger Games (Colours From the Capital) collection, it released in the wrong season for the colour range. Call me crazy, but a beautiful, juicy emerald green like this says Summer to me, not Winter.
I know... I have always said that I don't care what the season is, I wear what I am in the mood for. But, a large majority of the polish buying public likes to buy colours that suit the season and do wear colours that "go" with the time of year.
Did you pick up this pretty green shimmer? If you would like to have it, it should be available here and there. I know that Sally's has clearanced this collection, but you should be able to find it in random beauty supplies, on E-Bay and Amazon.
