Cirque Queen Majesty

Hey guys!

I hope you enjoyed my post yesterday for piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013! I was so happy to be a part of it. If you like my design, I would really appreciate your vote! The bloggers with the highest votes get to design a collaboration shade with piCture pOlish. How amazing would that be?! Visit this page and type in "Polished Prescription" in the comments section if you'd like to vote for me =)

Today I have a gorgeous Cirque polish to show you called Queen Majesty. While I was in New York, of course I had to stop by the only store in the country that sells Cirque polishes, International Playground. I asked Amy over at Gotham Polish for some places to check out while I was in New York, and she was so sweet and gave me a whole list, including International Playground! It was really awesome seeing a whole wall of Cirque polishes. It was hard to control myself, but I'm proud to say that I only bought four polishes. Go me! Haha.

Queen Majesty is the first of the Cirque polishes I bought during my trip that I'd like to show you. It was released as part of the new Arcus collection that came out a couple months ago. Queen Majesty consists predominantly of royal purple glitter with prominent blue glitter mixed in. In some lights, this polish reads completely purple, while in different lights it leans more blue. Application was pretty easy. It flowed nicely on the nail and didn't take too long to dry. I used 3 coats for full opacity. I also used piCture pOlish Revolution as my base coat so that removal would be easier, since this is a glitter after all.

Let me just tell you that this polish is absolutely gorgeous. I don't think pictures can truly capture the true sparkly purple-y beauty that is Queen Majesty. Especially out in the sun, this baby really sparkles. It's amazing! 

So here's three coats of Queen Majesty with a healthy serving of top coat to smooth it all out.

So what do you guys think of Queen Majesty? Do you like glittery polishes like this? If you haven't tried Cirque before, I definitely recommend it. So far my experience has been amazing, and I've loved all of the Cirque polishes I've tried. Stay tuned to see the rest of the polishes I picked up on my trip!

I hope you all have an amazing day! Thanks for stopping by =)


  1. Its a gorgeous color! Never tried anything from Cirque but they sound and look like an amazing brand of polish :)

    1. Isn't it Lisa?? Even though they're on the more expensive side, these polishes are totally worth it! And they're hand-made, which is pretty cool! Definitely check out their polishes if you have the chance =)


I really love getting comments, so if you like my post or have any suggestions, I'd love to hear what you think!
