While browsing in Ulta for their buy 2 get 1 free special for OPI nail polishes, I came across this new Femme de Cirque collection by OPI set up at the entry area. It's basically a soft pink shade collection that you would imagine yourself using for a nice french nails :)
I acquired 2 colors from this collection, In The Spot-Light Pink and I Juggle... Man. Since I figured the other 2 colors will be way too light and sheer for me.
Using In The Spot-Light Pink and trying to execute my first attempt of french nails on my nails:
It was harder than what I thought. It takes 3 coats for the nice candy pink to show up. For the white tip, I used Essie's Mashmallow.
The reason doing french nails is because my hubby loves all naturale look on me. Something simple isn't that wasn't to do afterall.
Ooo-la-la, it looks so shiny! And the micro-glitters from I Juggle…Men
As you can see, this collection is quite sheer and as I mentioned, it took me 3 coats of In The Spot-Light Pink before its real colors is showing through.
Quoting what other bloggers reviewed about this collection:
Each shade is very sheer and will take three coats before you’ll start to see any real opacity, so if coverage is what you’re aiming for—this collection might not have what you desire. But if you like to see a little bit of free-edge, you’re in luck! I Juggle…Men is an extremely subtle iridescent top coat that makes the nails seem almost dewy when applied over So Many Clowns…So Little Time, Step Right Up!, and In The Spot-Light Pink. What I like about the SoftShades is that they’re natural and clean, and that’s a look that is always in style.
