Cirque Midsummer Night Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have a polish that came out as part of the Kontiki collection but only made it onto my nails now.

Midsummer Night features a cobalt blue jelly base, red shimmer and a sprinkling of super fine gold glitter.  In shaded lighting the red shimmer shifts to green and gold.  The formula was a bit sheer but did layer up nicely.  After three coats it was 95% opaque.  In direct bright light (like my lightbox) you can still see the nail line peaking through a little bit.  It dries to a satin finish so a glossy top coat is recommended.  Photos show three coats of Midsummer Night with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Unfortunately, this polish was a limited edition and is hard to find these days.  However, the shimmer reminds me a lot of Girly Bits Cosmetics Shift Happens and I think you could come pretty close by layering it over a cobalt base.

Happy polishing,
