As I said before, the holidays are for glitter manicures. This time it’s Zoya ‘Sienna’ and Cirque Colors ‘Helios’. Cirque Colors is a brand I’ve wanted to try in a while, and Luxola’s recent 30% off sale was an enabling force (ha!). One of the Cirques I got was ‘Helios’, and gosh, this is the best gold nail polish I’ve ever seen. Honestly! It is a beautiful glitter of gold that is not too yellow or too mustard, just perfect. There are multicolor glitters in it, but not so much that they overwhelm the gold. When I put on nail polish at night, sometimes I use a headlamp. One swipe of Helios on the nails and BAM! That jaw-gaping moment with brush mid air. The pictures here don’t do justice. I’ve been adding Helios to my past four manicures, it’s that awesome!
Zoya Sienna is a great orange for my skin tone, as you can see. It’s bright but clean, with a golden shimmer that brings out the pink in my skin (and tone down the yellow). Click on pictures to enlarge.
