OPI Femme De Cirque soft shades collection

If my swatches are a little messy, I apologize. I tried waiting until my flu was gone but no luck on that. Hard to concentrate when you're ears are plugged :( Anyyyyywho...Femme De Cirque is a collection of 4 polishes: 3 sheers and 1 layering. I love a good sheer as much as bright colors but they always seem to end up streaky for me with horrible application so I never wear them. I was gearing myself up for disappointment as I twirled the bottles in my hand (I LOVE the way sheer polishes look in bottle). So how does this collection hold up?

So Many Clowns...So Little Time- I hate clowns. HATTTTTTTTEEEEE clowns. I blame Poltergeist. SMCSLT is a off-off-white. I love a sheer with a nice milky look to it like this and I think it would work wonderfully for french manis. 3 coats, wonderful application.

Step Right Up!- I ended up putting this one back on after swatching. I love love love this super milky pink sheer. It has just the right about of sheerness to it. In real life I would say it's almost a jelly. This shade at least has worn 4 days with no chips, 3 coats, another great application.

In the Spot-light Pink- Much sheerer than the previous two, I think this one gives nails a lovely "healthy" glow and is a great my-nails-but-better shade. Very sheer pink, would be another great base for a french. 3 coats, a little on the thin side for application.

I Juggle...Men- This is the layering polish. I put 1 coat over each of the other shades in this collection and then on my pinky did 3 coats on it's own. The finish on this is very delicate and light, it seems to be pink and blue micro-glitter in a clear base. I'm willing to bet this will layer over nearly anything well. I had a really hard time getting this to pick up on cam, enlarge to check it out (and sorry about the cuticles in advance;) )

I am surprised how much I liked this collection, I expected the worst of these and was surprised. The shades may not be very original but the formula on these makes up for it in my opinion. I would also like to mention that these covered better than I thought they would. I had staining from China Glaze Kiwi Coolada (despite base coat -_-), did you notice it?

Are you picking anything up from this collection? Do you wear sheers? What would you like to see I Juggle...Men over?
