Cirque Colors Thicker Than Water

Taking a break from the mattes and textures of late, I have a gorgeous polish to share with you-- Cirque Colors Thicker Than Water. This was originally released as part of the Kontiki Collection in 2014 and then re-released as part of a Nordstrom Pop-In collection this year. I missed out on it the first time around, so I didn't delay this time around. Thicker Than Water is a stunning teal green jelly with a strong green-gold shimmer to it.

As this is a jelly, it is a little on the sheer side and you can see some visible nail line (though honestly, the camera picked it up more than it was truly visible). This just have a slightly thicker formula, but goes on easily and smoothly. I used three coats just to make sure I had good coverage.

I thought Dear Dahlia was exquisite, but Thicker Than Water is just as gorgeous. The shimmer is incredible-- it really does give the appearance of tropical waters. All I wanted to do was stare at my nails. Thicker Than Water is truly stunning-- the shimmer is what elevates this polish. My pictures don't do this justice!
