Cirque – Never Nude

Hello Lovely Ladies,

This post is pre-scheduled as my family and I are in Niagara Falls for a mini-getaway.

Today’s feature polish, Cirque Never Nude comes with an “acquisition” story, I hope you read on 🙂

A little while back, Katie from Harlow & Co asked me to review a few Cirque shades, that she added to her stock (see the review post here).  When it comes to review products, I am happy to receive the sender’s sellection, but Katie gave me the choice of shades this time.  So I picked two ‘my-style’ shades and two shades that I thought were a little ‘different’ for me.  Katie personally dropped the Cirque shades off at my house (as she was in London), and as she handed me the review shades I gasped in awe at the color on HER nails!

(two coats, no topcoat)

Katie proceeded to tell me that she was wearing Cirque Never Nude (a polish that she was certain I would pick for review)… Well, it was love at first sight, and with four gorgeous Cirque shades to keep me occupied, I waited for the inventory to show up on Harlow & Co and pounced to purchase Never Nude. My first nail polish purchase of this year! AND  I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER WITH IT.

Never Nude is a champagne nude strong linear holo.  It wears like a champagne-gold shade and the holo effect makes it look silver and copper in some lights.  It is MAGNIFICENT.  ‘nough said 😉

For the accent nails I used Cult Nails Tempest with Gals Plate GA35 and China Glaze Hi-Tek.  I showed a photo of this manicure on Instagram HERE, and a few of you thought the stamping was done with Never Nude… please note that it was actually done with Hi-Tek and dotted here and there with Never Nude.

* just a side note, Cult Nails Tempest is a very fast drying white.  By the time I painted the holo nails, Tempest was dry enough to stamp – BONUS *

You can get your bottle of Never Nude from Harlow & Co HERE!

While I don’t wear holographic shades often, when I do, I’m a sucker for light/soft holo shades especially warm-toned ones like this one.

Are you a holo fan?  What shades do you like your holos to be?


  • *sigh* I still need to pick up this one! I bought Fascination Street from this collection and it is amazing! I’ve never seen a holo quite like it!

    Love the stamping! Goes really well with Never Nude.

  • I just LOVE your colour combinations… And this manicure is super awesome!

    I am a sucker for holos….Linear….scattered….maybe it is the little girl in me who loved rainbows (and the adult that is still fascinated by the whole science of it all) but I hopped on the holo bus and never got off. I saw a post rumoring that China Glaze is coming out with a linear holo line this summer with 8, yes EIGHT, shades. Saving my pennies now!

    Never Nude is a stunning shade. I would love some of these Cirque shades :). Have a wonderful mini break xx

  • I am a real holo addict, I love the sparkles in them. En this one oooh my such a stunner. It’s a good choice from Katie. It matches your skintone perfect. And yesss a skittlette I love them. Have fun with your family in the Niagra falls. xoxo

    This mani is SO pretty! I like it!

  • Stacy Plowman-Pennock

    Another Marta stunner that has me drooling in my keyboard (if I get finger shocks I’m blaming you!)!! I LU-HUV nude holo’s, like LOVELOVE, as in, my absolute favorite polishes of all time! If I had to pick just one polish, or “color” to wear for the rest of my life it would undoubtedly be a nude holo!
    p.s. Hope you’re all having fun in Niagara!

  • Woooooow that is so stunning !! 😀 I love holographic shades ! But I don’t wear them often…. ^^ I have the 4 colors of the Kiko Lavish Oriental collection. And I love the champagne one and the anthracit one. 🙂

    Enjoy your little getaway in Niagara Falls ! 😉

  • Raquel Mason

    That’s a beautiful mani, so lovely. I love holos, I only have 2 from Color Club and I just got them. The holo I have stamps very well.

  • Jamie Willett

    This is a GORGEOUS nude holo! Classy, yet still full of all those amazing rainbows we love so much! I’m also in love with Tempest…so lovely!

  • coraline humbert

    I DIIIIIIE THAT’S TOO PERFECT ! Never Nude, Cirque, a Baroque (to me it looks a little baroque!) design, white and gold combo, little dots added with Never Nude. PERFECTION perfection perfection, why do you always do Perfect things Marta :p?

    • Awh, your comment sooo made my morning (when I first read it and again now as I reply).
      Thank you SO much- this holo shade inspired this look 😀

  • That is SO gorgeous! I generally don’t like nudes as much as you do (my nails always have to be bright and obnoxious) but a nude holo? Stunning!!

    • Awh, there is something really pretty about bright and fun nails also 😀

      I admire every shade 😀
      This one truly is a stunner (I’m itching to wear it again)…

  • Gorgeous holo and manicure!

    • Thank you very much

  • rn t

    What a pretty holo! Lately I’ve been into holos and I’m not lusting for Butt Bootie Naked by Lacquer Lust! It’s such a pretty holo!

    • I will have to look that one up- I don’t think I’ve seen it before (off to google swatches)

  • I’m a huge holo fan and this was the one I wanted from Cirque-there are others but I have those colors from another brand. Plus I LOVE Niagara Falls-used to go all the time growing up. Need to revisit. Anywho, you know I love you and your nails-I actually mention you in a post coming up with a blog link back to you-credit for the idea to turn the sweater design on the nailz craze plate for a different look.

    • Awh, thank you- it is always so great to hear from you 😀
      Niagara falls is quite a lovely place- I didn’t appreciate it as much as a kid, but now it has a huge impact on me every time I see it.

      Never Nude might just be my favourite holo of all time (sharing first place with FNUG holos).
