VERY cute, but a bit of a pain to apply. I had to tip it sideways and upside down every time I dip in the brush to get some of the pieces out. Plus, it was hard to see the black pieces against the black brush so I didn't know whether I got any or not until I try it against my finger. I also had to be careful of bubbles. First time I tried this polish, I ended up getting a lot of the clear base and the glitter pieces "floated" away from my nail and I had to readjust them and ended up with bubbles that I didn't notice until I put on my top coat.
However, I love the way it looks. The black and white hexagonal glitter with the black bar glitter is so adorable I could live with the annoying application. If you have enough time and patience, I recommend this polish for sure!
Another interesting polish from the Cirque de Soleil collection. It is large opaque circle shapes, non reflective thin black bars of different lengths and opaque smaller black hex shapes in a very, very sheer black base. One has to be careful and not just yank the brush out an apply straight away because that pass may not deposit any of the shapes on the nail. Tip the closed bottle upside down to make the shapes come up, then with the brush you can get some out and lay them where you want on the nail. Every nail will look different, that's just the nature of "whirled away." It indeed is a very interesting polish, and I do think it could be worn alone and not solely used for layering over colors. One of the coolest ones in my stash!
