China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil - It’s a Trap-eze & Whirled Away Review

It’s a Trap-eze
Whirled Away
OMG I finally got my hands on the Cirque de Soleil Polishes. I found them at my local Sally's, they are used to me stalking the new releases!! I really was lemming only 2 and I got them and here these beauties are swatched for your viewing pleasure. This has to be a way for mainstream china glaze to capitalize on the indie style of polishes. I first tried  It’s a Trap-eze! Here I only had to use two coats for full coverage and some decent opaqueness. Very slight visible nail line. I really liked the formula this polish not clumpy. This is a must have from china glaze. What do you think? Have any of you tried this polish?  I also bought Whirled away, it is a clear polish full of black and white hexes and black bar glitter, this polish is my first bar glitter polish and I have to say I like it more than I actually expected to like it. The formula is very thick so you really cant place to many layers with out it looking unpleasant.In the picture i Used Revlon Electric Pink as my underwear and 3 coats of the Whirled away i really wanted a good coverage. I had to do a lot of fishing to get out some of the white hexes. I was not as thrilled with whirled away. I did not like the thickness of the polish, the lack of white hexes and trying to fish them out. I did not even mind the bar glitter that reminded me of hair a few times as I placed it on my nails. What do you think ?
Thanks for any feedback!! xoxo


  1. Janet..You "nailed" it!! Great review; I completely agree. Wearing Trap-eze now..and I love it. Whirled Away will be worn to a function as described in SMYTC..LOL!

  2. Thank you Frannie !! I was thinking Whirled Away will be cool for a mani during Halloween like a smashed up Spider. I think I want to get another black and white glitter. This does not make the cut. Lol Omg that was so funny, how you threaten her with your nail polish. My kids are still young it takes a lot to embarrass them.

  3. I just got Trap-eze, and I can't wait to wear it! It is so pretty :)

  4. i had to go out of state for a funeral, unexpectedly...came back and haven't been able to find its a trapeze anywhere :( it's beautiful on you!

  5. Thanks so Much Mavoreen, I love this polish plus it was hard to find. I was actually stalking those poor people in sally's !! Sally's only got 3 of these polishes, but don't fret you can probably find them on line at sally's or ebay without people gorging the price yet,.

  6. Hi Amy, this polish is amazing and coats evenly, super glittery amazing in a bottle, tell me how it goes for you !! I am impressed with mainstream brands trying to come up with their own versions of some indies. lol
