Hi everyone! Last month Cirque Colors had mystery bags for sale and to get to free shipping I wanted to add two polishes from the Desert Bloom collection so I chose Earthen & Wildflowers. When I first opened the package I was a little disappointed because they seemed so close in person. Granted, they are both gorgeous and you really can’t go wrong with whichever one you choose, but in my opinion, unless you are a diehard Cirque Collector you really only need one of these. So I’m going to do a comparison of the two so you can make your own decision on which one (or two) you need.
Cirque Colors Earthen is described as, “a brown-taupe nail polish with fiery red shimmer and delicate holographic sparkle” and Wildflowers is described as, “a dusty violet nail polish with strong copper shimmer and delicate holographic sparkle”. They both have a fantastic formula with great coverage even on the first coat. You don’t really notice the holographic sparkle inside, but once you get outside it’s really delicate and pretty! I used two coats plus topcoat for each polish.
Earthen is on my index and pinky fingers and Wildflowers is on my middle and ring fingers.
Cirque Colors Earthen (index and pinky) and Wildflowers (middle and ring), 2 coats of each plus topcoat.

Outside in direct sun (this has lightened & brightened up the colors)…

So there it is. I really do love both of these and like I said you can’t go wrong with either, I just wish I had replaced one of these with one of the speckled polishes from the Desert Bloom collection since they are very similar. If I had to choose just one today, I would get Earthen, I like that one a little better.
Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
