Welcoming Cirque to Harlow & Co.

On Friday we launched a new brand here at Harlow & Co. - the fabulous Cirque!!! For those who don't know about Cirque, this is the "About Us" info for you!


"Cirque is an artisanal line of hand-blended nail polish made in New York.  The name Cirque, meaning ring or circle, represents the color wheel and the endless color possibilities in the continuum.  Creator, Annie Pham, sought to develop colors that transcend those of conventional brands by experimenting with unique pigments and raw materials.  The debut collection, Dark Horse, is a 12-color arrangement that is diverse in its hues and finishes -- similar to the creative energy that abounds New York.

Cirque nail polish is B3 free, which means it does not contain toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate. Each bottle holds .45 oz / 13.2 ml of product and is hand-mixed by batch using high quality ingredients such as cosmetic-grade pigments and glitter.  Organic lavender and clary sage essential oils have been added to lend your hands a subtle scent after the polish dries."

We are just so excited to have Cirque join our line-up here - Annie's polishes made it to a ton of blogger "Top 10 Polish" lists at the end of 2012 and we anticipate that this will continue in the future because her polishes are just so amazing!

I kept Fascination Street, XX and Never Nude (for the obvious Arrested Development reasons) for myself, although I want to keep all of the colours... I will eventually, I'm sure!! ;)

Fascination Street is a vibrant indigo polish with a rainbow holographic finish. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING - enough said, onto pictures!

I took all of these in my lightbox since we had a ton of snow come down yesterday!

XX is a rainbow glitter polish made with over 20 different types of holographic particles. I think I was most excited about this polish - I have a lot of love for glitter, does it show?! ;) I layered one coat over Ozotic Mr. Big Black - which is a great black polish by the way! Not my most original glitter combo but it's a classic! I didn't have to dab to get good glitter placement, it literally just glided on without any issues - AMAZING!

These were taken this morning outside, no flash - the sun was out! I also apologize for my shoddy clean-up job!!

Sadly, these are sold out at the moment, but they'll be back in about 1-2 weeks!!

What do you guys think of Cirque - which ones are your favourites?!
