Another recent purchase: China Glaze Running in circles from the 2012 Cirque Du soleil collection. There was so much hype around this polish a couple of months back, it was in my timeline almost everyday. I am a huge green nail polish fan but the price always stopped me from buying it. Thankfully it popped up in the Beauty Emporium sale so I finally got it.
Running in circles is an emerald green with green flecks mixed through it. It has a lovely glittery look to it. Very difficult to show its true colour and finish. It reminds me of China Glaze Riveting. Both are very pretty. Formula was pretty normal. You'll only need 2-3 coats and it dries quickly. I have on a topcoat to give it some extra shine.
I'm not overly fond of the long thin brush China Glaze have in their polishes. I'd sooner they used the same as Catrice (the last batch not the new wonky one) Overall I like it but i don't think it deserves all the hype it's been getting. It didn't blow me away when I first put it on. It'll definitely get a lot of wear but mostly as a background for nail art.
Oh and if you managed to get this on your skin it was an absolute nightmare to get off. Removal from the nail was not that bad at all but it stuck like glue to the skin around my nails.
