Digit-al Dozen Does Art: Rothko

My Day 4 mani of the Digit-al Dozen ART theme week is based on a Mark Rothko painting called White Center (Yellow, Pink, and Lavender on Rose) (1950) [image source]. You probably recognize it. It’s one of the most expensive pieces of art ever sold. $72.8 million! What a steal! David Rockefeller bought it for only $10,000 in 1960 and attended the auction when it was sold almost 50 years later. During the auction, I imagine he felt like I did in the last 5 minutes of my husband’s motorcycle listing on eBay! Talk about a nail biter!

PART 2: China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Swatches & Review

Today I have the second half of the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Swatches. Yesterday I showed you the cremes and a jelly. The remaining six polishes are glitters and a shimmer.

Bend Over Backwards is a metallic, shimmery, coppery orange. The formula reminded me of China Glaze Magnetix – thick and creamy. The pic doesn’t do this polish justice. It has the same shimmer as Riveting from the Hunger Games Collection…super vibrant!

PART 1: China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Swatches & Review

Happy Saturday! Today I have six polishes from the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Collection – the cremes and a jelly (?) Tomorrow I’ll show you the glitters and shimmers. So let’s jump right in.

Escaping Reality is a hot pink creme. You can never have too many hot pink cremes! We’re only a few weeks into Fall and already it seems like ages since I’ve worn a color like this! Formula was great on this one. I used two coats and a coat of Seche Vite. Without the topcoat, it has a satiny, rubbery finish…which is cool…but I was on autopilot and mindlessly slathered on the topcoat!
