OPI Femme De Cirque Collection 2011 - Swatches and Review

Today I have the new Soft shades from OPI for you. I was very curious about these because I found that I have very little polishes like this. I was missing such shades in the time when I was looking for a new job and I think such a shade should be a part of any nail polish collection, there are always events when you need these :) Talking about OPI and their soft shades reminds me that I need to get some of the polishes from the Princess Charming collection, I love those. Anyway, here is this year´s collection: 


SO MANY CLOWNS...SO LITTLE TIME
This is a neutral white. It is not opaque, it is sheer. I really liked the effect with one coat. It looks like your nails but better. On this picture I used three coats.

This collection comes with a shimmering top coat. It has pink and purple shimmer and looks very pretty. You can not see the effect very much on these light shades though.

IN THE SPOT-LIGHT PINK
This is a sheer pink. I am sure it would look amazing on shorter nails than mine. It would make them look healthy. On me it doesn't look very pretty but I hope you get the idea of the color. This was four coats.

Again with the shimmering top coat. I will do a post about it, trying it on darker creme polishes, wait for that :)

STEP RIGHT UP!
This is the most opaque shade from this collection. This is three coats. It has a hint of pink and looks like it is my favourite.

STEP RIGHT UP! with I JUGGLE...MEN
These two look great together. Very pretty yet work appropriate.

One thing about these polishes. I think they would look MUCH better on shorter nails. I just didn't want to file my nails down because of them. I like their formula, they are not streaky and the first two look very pretty even in one coat. They make your nails look healthy and natural. Overall this is not a wow collection but colors like this never are for me. I still like it because there are times when these will be just perfect!

  2. D'you know something? I was just thinking that they would never work on shorter nails like mine. They're so understated that they need longer nails. Very pretty but I'm sure they need a longer length.

  5. Děkuji za fotky, pořád neví, jestli se mi líbí nebo ne, tedy ten nadlak ano, ale ty laky samotné budou na mě vypadat asi dost příšerně. Ale Step right vede.

  6. I really love these soft shades :)
    They look lovely on your nails. And just a thought: funny that you should say lighter colors look good on shorter nails. Because I always thought dark colors and specially black look perfect on shorties while lighter look great on longer nails :P

  7. Love the first one on your nails. Your nails are so pretty. I'm not buying any of these. I don't care for these too much. I have shorter nails but they're too sheer for me.

  8. So "no" for me. I don't like pinks, I don't like sheer and I don't like short nails :-D Can't wait to see your swatch of "I juggle man" on darker colours :-)
