Tiffany provided me with both Under the Big Top and Circus Circus for preview and review:
Let’s start with Under the Big Top - Two coats, no undies and no base coat, no glitter tamer, and one coat of HK Girl Top Coat. This is a black jelly polish, with multicolored holographic hex and circle glitters. Because it’s a jelly AND it’s black? First coat doesn’t go on looking like something you’d want to “top-coat and go.” Personally, I’ve never met a one-coat jelly polish - if you have? Introduce me. So I knew this going in, and remember, I didn’t use a base coat or undies; instead, I did a really thin first coat and let it dry well. But when it was time for that second coat? BOY HOWDY, I loaded it up and slathered it on. There was no fishing, dabbing, nothing…this polish is packed with bling. I let it dry, topped it, and it was smooth as glass. GORGEOUS.
Next up we have Circus Circus - This is a glitter topper - multicolored glitters in a clear bas - BUT, if you look at my thumb, you’ll see that I didn’t use a base color underneath, opting instead for three coats alone of the polish … and I was pleasantly surprised! I think I could make that work! On the other nails? A base of Butter London Keks, and ONE COAT of Circus Circus. ONE COAT, people. Hit it with some HK Girl, and done. Again, perfect application, no fishing…just lovely. LOOKIE AT THE BLINGIES!!
So…what do you think? I love this. LOVE THIS. And I *really* think you could also do one coat of Under the Big Top over something else, to make it darker and more mysterious, and sparkly - I wanna try that!
Rumor has it that there MIGHT just be a coupon code forthcoming on launch day…keep your eyes open!
