Dazzled by Dioptase

Welcome back to the blog! I have an awesome polish for you today!!  When I saw sneak peeks of Cirque Colors new facets collection I knew I had to get them!!

As you may know if you follow me on Pinterest, I love gems and minerals. I go to the largest gem and mineral show in the U.S. every year, which fortunately is held a mere 2 hour drive from me in Tucson.  I love it, the sensory overload from the beauty surrounding me is breathtaking.

At last year's show, I fell in love with Dioptase. A striking emerald green-blue, I couldn't stop looking at it. Normally I gravitate towards amethyst, but Dioptase quickly became my new love.

So when I saw that one of Cirque's new polishes was called Dioptase, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!  Dioptase is a stunning scattered holo flakie glitter masterpiece. Nearly opaque in one coat, the formula is perfect and it glides on easily.

I took some pics with my specimens of Dioptase as well as some other fossils and minerals in my collection.

Cirque Colors is available for purchase here


  1. this color is amazing. I might have to bring it home with me. Cirque is so good at shades like this.

  2. This polish really is beautiful! I love that you used your gems in your pictures.

  3. This is so cool! I also love gems - my green for the upcoming Color Box is based on Alexandrite. And of course I bought this Cirque as well.

  4. Gorgeous color, and it matches the gem so well.
