Cirque Colors ICON Duos for Nordstrom x OC Pop-In Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share with you some new limited edition Cirque Colors lacquers that are available in special duo packs. They are part of the specially curated Pop-In Shop event at Nordstrom celebrating the NYC fashion brand Opening Ceremony. These six shades are inspired by the OC pre-spring color palette, available in gift sets each containing 1 crème and 1 holographic shade.

Selvedge is a navy blue crème, deep not so dark that it looks black which I appreciate. The formula is really great, it's almost a one coater but I did use two here.

Tangerine Dream is paired with Selvedge; it's a medium pumpkin orange, that leans a touch red, holographic. The holo bits in this really pop, it's very vibrant. This applied effortlessly and was also almost a one coater, but it deepened slightly on the second coat.

El Capitan is an olive green crème. Another amazing formula, really close to being a one coat wonder but again I did two here. A slightly brighter version than other olive shades that I have, so I'm happy to have this in my collection.

Modern Muse is in the duo with El Capitan, a start contrast in a dusty princess pink-gold linear holographic. This one was kinda thin, but covered well in two coats. The holo is a bit stronger in person than it appears here.

Storm King has a crème formula in an icy light blue. This had a great formula for being such a pale color, no streaking and good coverage in two coats. This is a color you could wear all year long and you'd always be in season!

Oporto is Storm King's duo partner, a mahogany burgundy jelly with scattered holographic shimmer and red sparkle bits. This one was a little bit thin, but not difficult to apply at all. Two coats for full opacity.
