Trapeze Swinger, and Three Ringed Circus


Hi people! Sorry I was MIA yesterday, my 3rd iPhone cord burnt out on me and I had to wait for the mail haha SOOOO I couldn't watermark my pictures because they're in my phone and I watermark before I go to bed to save time haha :P I DIGRESS! Today I have the other half of my Freak Show Polish review. I have 4 more to show and review for you this time! If you missed part 1, you can find it here.

My favorite out of all I was sent to review. So fun and so versatile! Strongman I is a "topper full of round glitters in various shades of green and blue". I was super pleased when the larger circle glitters came out without having to fish because this polish wouldn't be the same without them :]

I did 2 coats over Color Club Disco Dress. I had no application issues and dry time was good, no complaints from me here. Everything worked out great :P

I felt this was too sheer to build up on its own and after a few layers visible nail line was still seen, not my thang. While I feel if you have Strongman I then you don't need both, I do like the depth Strongman I creates with 2-3 layers. Strongman II is a "milky white jelly full of round glitters in various shades of green and blue". You'll find the exact same glitters from Strongman I in II, just II is in a milky base.

I layered 2 coats over white. I wish it was a touch more opaque but with undies will do. Application was great, no issues and the glitters came out perfectly. Dry time was... the typical dry time for a jelly haha, so I do recommend waiting between coats.

Trapeze Swinger is described as a "milky white jelly full of periwinkle hexes in various sizes and small green hexes". I love the periwinkle blue and lime green glitter mix, it's very refreshing to me. (Haha does that make sense?) I'm not so sure about the milky white base in this one, I found the white base significantly less sheer than Strongman II. Which isn't a bad thing necessarily, it leaves more options to layer over!

I did 2 layers of Trapeze Swinger over Sinful Colors Sugar Rush. It would of looked great over white, but I didn't want too may white undie-d manis in the post haha. The application was fine, no complaints here, and I didn't find the dry time to be an issue. Everything was good to go.

I personally felt like this was the most unique out of the 7 I was sent. Three Ringed Circus is a "milky white jelly full of  red and black round glitters and red and white square and fine hex glitter". Still not a white based polish fan (I know, I tell you that like every post haha) but I do like the glitter mix and the layered effect the white base creates when layered, like in Strongman II!

I did 2 coats over a white polish.  I don't recall running into any issues besides the typical jelly dry time, have patience. The application was great, no issues with that, and I was again happy to see all the glitter come out great. It wouldn't be the same without all the glitter on the nail!
