Fast nail swatch time! Cirque French Roast nail polish is an autumnal confection of gold, bronze and chocolate brown glitters in a clean suspension base. The prediminantly brown microglitters that make up the bulk of French Roast are a little too fine and sparse to build to full coverage by itself; in these nail swatches I did three coats over clean base coat and there’s still a noticeable amount of natural nail colour peeping through. I’d definitely suggest applying a warm chocolate brown or dark burgundy lacquer underneath French Roast to boost opacity without sacrificing the lustre and warmth of that gorgeous warm shimmer.
For an excellent example of French Roast over an opaque dark base take a peep at The Swatchaholic‘s nail review!
