OPI Femme de Cirque Swatches

Finally! Here are the swatches from OPI’s Femme de Cirque Collection. The buzz I’ve been hearing about this collection is the fabulous I Juggle…Men is catching everyone’s attention. Not hard to see why really. 🙂

First up is In The Spot-Light Pink.

OPI In The Spot-Light Pink

This is a delicate pretty pink. It’s pretty sheer shade, so feel free to apply thicker coats or more layers. I don’t mind sheer shades and stuck with my usual 2 thin coats with no top coat. Formula is easy to work with, it basically applied itself. I noted no streakiness at all. It dried pretty fast too for a sheer shade with creme finish.

Next up is Step Right Up!

Step Right Up! is a really light pink shade. It’s a barely there pink really. Formula went on smoothly. Shown is again, 2 thin coats with no top coat.

Here is a shade whose name made me laugh: So Many Clowns, So Little Time.

OPI So Many Clowns, So Little Time

Described as a creamy nude pink, this is more of a nude shade to me than pink. Just as sheer as the other shades in this collection, you will either have to apply more or thicker layers. I think it’s the perfect nude shade to sport right now! Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.

Last shade has been highlighted with all the other shades of this collection. Here is I Juggle…Men.

This is my favorite shade in this collection. ‘Nuff said. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.

Like I mentioned before, the shades in this collection are pretty sheer. If you want no visible nail line, you’ll have to apply more layers or thicker layers. I personally don’t mind seeing visible nail line with these sheer shades.

So, which shade will you be getting?

  1. I love them all as I love sheers but I think I have enough of them already to use. 🙂

    I’d be curious to see how I Juggle…Men looks like over a vampy burgundy or a black.

    • Something for me to work on for a future post! I haven’t tried it over a dark shade yet. I’ll keep you posted!

  4. I really like this collection! Usually I don’t like sheers, but I love how these look like my natural nail, only better.

    • If I were to get just one, it would be I Juggle…Men definitely.

  5. I think it’s the shimmering/sparkling effect of OPI’s, “How I Juggle …Men,” that’s all the rage with their pinkish French Manicure shades, don’t you agree?

    Love,

    Mc Huggs 🙂

    • I think so! I think being that it’s the only glittery shade, it’s really the most interesting one among the 4. A glitter top coat is always “in” these days!

  6. I love the nude look of both Spotlight and Clowns. I only got the Juggle Men and I was disappointed in the barely there sparkle. But then, that’s the point, I suppose. These look down right pretty on you. All go great with your skin tone.

    • Thank you! I was worried that I Juggle…Men’s sparkle was too sparse initially. It’s still a bit sparse than what I would’ve liked, but I’ll take it!

  7. The last one is really interesting, I think i neeed “I Juggle…Men” – thanks for sharing, now i have a new polish I have to hunt down lol!

  8. Great colors, love the first one!

    • It seems like it’s almost going to replace Barracuda as the favorite!

  9. I came back to let you know that, thanks to your post, I just ordered I juggle men.
    ^^ Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to try it!

  10. I don’t like visible nail lines. They would look good on a french manicure though

    • I personally don’t mind, but I know some people do. Other bloggers have managed to make it opaque by using thicker coats or more coats, so it’s doable.
