Cirque x Met Collaboration: Manus X Machina

I'm showing off one of my all time favorite collections today. I am in love with the colors in this collection as well as the inspiration behind each polish. Recently Cirque Colors was asked to collaborate on a limited edition collection for the Metropolitan Museum's costume exhibit, Manus x Machina. This exhibition explores how fashion designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear. Inspiration was pulled from several dresses in the collection and these stunning polishes were created. 

Up first is Cirque Colors Ultrasonic, a sheer linen white polish. I used three thin coats here, no application issues. I did have some visible nail line, but that doesn't bother me. 




Next we have Cirque Colors Laser Jet (shown over Ultrasonic), a black holographic glitter topper that is inspired by the beautiful hand beading in the collection. 




Cirque Colors Raven is a stunning multichrome with a black base. It shows very green on me, but you can also see maroon and deep blue in certain lighting.




Cirque Colors Pret-a-Pearl is a soft white polish filled with pink iridescent shimmer. I adore this shade! I used two easy coats for full coverage, but there is visible nail line. 




One of my favorites from the collection is Cirque Colors Moondust! Moon Dust is a chameleon silver foil made with a superfine sterling silver pigment. It's so perfect for this collection. I used two easy coats here.




Finally we have my absolute favorite polish, Cirque Colors Tulle. This is a beautiful dusty pink-beige creme polish, that was opaque in two coats. It's perfection in a bottle, but that's just my opinion.




These polishes are being sold exclusively at the Met Store, either at the museum or online and are only available for a limited time.

Which polish is your favorite?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
