OPI Femme De Cirque Collection - Part 2 Individual Swatches

Now on to individual reviews for each shade from OPI Femme De Cirque, I'm starting from the Sheerest to the most opaque.

In The Spotlight Pink
In The Spotlight Pink is the sheerest shade from the collection, it's also the most pink polish from the collection and makes me think of strawberry milkshake. It has a lovely squishy texture and is a perfect base colour for a French Manicure. This was 3 coats.

So Many Clowns So Little Time

So Many Clowns So Little Time is less sheer than In The Spotlight Pink, it's a milk cream toned polish, great if you want a less pink base for a french mani. This was 3 coats.

 Step Right Up

Step Right Up is the most opaque polish from the collection, cream toned with a hint of pink. This was 3 coats.

Step Right Up with  I Juggle...Men

I Juggle...Men is a gorgeous micro shimmer top coat packed with duochrome sparkly flecks that flash pink purple and blue, this is my standout favourite from the collection, and the only one I bought full size. I'm really looking forward to trying this one out over other shades, as it really does give a gorgeous shimmery finish. The effect is very subtle over the softshade polishes, 

All in all a great collection for neutral shade lovers, alas my nails are far too stained to wear these kinds of shades on their own, although Step Right Up is definitely opaque enough on its own, and they all work very well as a base for french manis, in fact here's a mani I did recently using Step Right Up as a base, you can click the pic if you'd like more info about the mani:


  1. Step right up seems like it would be awesome for a french mani! And even better to get rid of the yellowness on the nails. :)

  2. I have to agree, alas my stained nails cannot really get away with sheerer shades hehe :)
