Best neon polishes for summer-Cirque Colors Vice 2020

The nail polish collection that I look forward to most of all every year. The Cirque Colors Vice 2020 Collection.  An annual collection of shocking neon shades. Seriously, I say this every year, but Cirque makes the best neon polishes that I have tried. The colours are legit! When it is summer time or I am in the Caribbean,  I love wearing super bright shades, they look amazing against dark skin!

Cirque Colors Vice 2020 Collection –  What to know

Before I get to the swatches here are a few things to note:

  • Limited Edition
  • Big 10 Free
  • Vegan & Cruelty Free
  • Woman owned, small business
  • No need to wear a white base coat – colour stays vibrant and true
  • Neon shades dry down to a plastic finish – not matte but not shiny – I highly recommend using a shiny top coat
  • Shades are blacklight/UV reactive – they glow!!!

Collection is a mix of brand new and repromoted shades

I bought all of these polishes.  For the most part, they all applied easily and smoothly, with full opacity in 2 coats.  Cirque uses a standard nail polish brush (not the wide style).

Now to the swatches!

Cirque Colors Vice 2020 Thirsty
Thirsty – brand new. A neon minty green creme. Surprisingly beautiful colour, bright and not pastel or chalky. Looks great on dark skin.
Cirque Colors Vice 2020 Euphoria
Euphoria – brand new. A gorgeous neon lilac creme. First shade that I knew that I had to get. I love purples and I love shades like this!
Cirque Colors Vice 2020 Superfreak
Superfreak – brand new. The brightest, neon orange. Literally, traffic cone orange. If you bought the previously released shade, Game Over, that is definitely more of a red-orange and Superfreak is an unmistakable orange.
Cirque Colors Vice 2020 Retail Therapy
Retail Therapy – repromote. They released this in 2018 and I bought it then. A bright neon fuschia pink. I am not crazy about pink polishes except if they are rich, and not bubble gummy.
Cirque Colors Vice 2020 Hedonist
Hedonist – repromote. Again released with the Vice 2018 collection, and I also bought it then. A true, true primary yellow neon shade. Reads a little on the cool side, and it looks brilliant against dark skin.

There are two other shades that I did not purchase. They didn’t really call to me, but let me know if you bought them. They are:

Cyber – neon grass green (use dark skin Cirque image)

I love this collection, as usual.  Shades from the Vice 2020 collection cost US$12.50 each and are available from the Cirque Colors website for a limited time.
