China Glaze Running In Circles

Hi lovely readers! Hope you are having a fantastic Christmas! :-)

Today, I wanted to show you my favorite from the recent China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away Collection. Running In Circles is a fantastically glowy green with tons of golden shimmers in a glass fleck finish.






I have been coveting this color ever since I saw the press release and its swatches. When I was at my local Sally Beauty store the other day, it totally stood out on the display. It is a stunning green, even more so in person. I was surprised they still had this color for sale, and I snatched up the only bottle on the display. Score! :-)

This sparkly and festive green is perfect for this time of the year. The base green color is a little on the cooler side, but the warm golden shimmers help balance it out. The formula is a little sheerer than typical for China Glaze. You can get 90% of the way to opacity with two coats, but you'll want a third coat if you want the last 10%. For the swatches, I stuck with three coats because the camera can be unforgiving at picking up the tiniest bit of sheerness.

You can find Running In Circles for a limited time at your local nail salons, at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty, and online at select beauty retailers.
