My friend was nice enough to lend me these blues from the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Collection: Water You Waiting For and Hanging in the Balance!
Just like with my Green Fiend Nails, I decided to wear more than one shade as my manicure for these Blue Fiend Nails so that I could return her precious bottles sooner.
The bonus? It was easier to remove when you have glitter on just two fingers.
In this post, not only will I share some more photos of this design, but I’ll also give quick mini reviews on both polishes in case you’re curious if they’re must-haves or not.

China Glaze Water You Waiting For Mini Review
This super glittery polish is blue, teal, and purple. It reminded me very much of Nicole by OPI Kendall on the Katwalk. So, if you weren’t able to find that, this is a great alternative.
You only need 2 coats for full coverage, but even a single coat covers very well, too!
Due to the glitter overload, this was an extremely thick and chunky polish. On the positive side, it dried very quickly.
It dries to a very gritty finish, so a single layer of top coat isn’t enough. It ‘eats’ top coat like it’s been starving for weeks!
China Glaze Hanging in the Balance Mini Review
Hanging in the Balance was much easier to apply, and it went on smoothly. This creme blue is a cheerful kind of blue that reminds me of the spring.
You’ll only need to use 2 coats to achieve full opacity. And, since it’s a creme, it’s very easy to remove.
Do you wear manicures where each nail has a different design? Have you picked up any of the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil polishes? Have you ever been to a Cirque du Soleil show?
