Continuing on with my #LunarFebruary theme AND gearing up for Valentine’s Day (I only like the nail art and cheap chocolate on Feb.15th), today’s featured brand is Cirque Colors, which is Asian-founded and owned by Annie Pham. In addition to some of the most unique colours and collections on the market, Cirque also creates “Do Good” polishes with a portion of profits going towards organizations like To Write Love on Her Arms, a mental health and addiction non-profit, City Harvest, a food equity non-profit and Vietnamese Boat People, a non-profit that works to share experiences and connect people to the history of the Vietnam War. I have only met one Vietnamese Boat person and she told me that she was only 5 when she escaped and while on the journey, she almost drowned and then ended up getting an infection that left her deaf in one ear. It was an incredible story and I cannot even imagine coming to a foreign country not knowing if you will even make it.
I was browsing Instagram for some cute Valentine’s Day ideas and stumbled across one from @soa.nails that featured a more natural base and some cartoony hearts that had a more matte look. It was pretty fast to do and looked cute in the end! You can be pretty messy with the colours and even drawing the hearts which is what I liked about this particular nail art and can really work for a number of shapes.
