I fell in love at first sight with Cirque's Coronation, what a lovely polish and a lovely crown ring as a bonus, together in a cute little satchel and box. The price I won't talk about, it's ridiculous (I bought it with a discount, but still...>auch<).
The polish is a purple jelly with red shimmer and that colour shifting stuff that you all know too well as unicorn pee (Fantasy Fire, Clarins 320, Nfu Oh 51 etc.). It works well with 2 coats, although 3 might be better. It EATS top coat, so prepare and add an extra layer!

Next up I needed to compare this with Max Factor's Fantasy Fire, naturally.
To achieve the same result with two coats of Coronation, I needed 5 coats of FF.

You can see that Coronation has also some micro glitters in there next to the shimmer.
Colour wise it is very much the same.
5 Coats is, well how shall I put this, a bit exorbitant; so I thought of a solution: 1 coat of Sation Miss Emo Shun All and two FF.

But then you do NOT own the rose gold plated crown ring by Jeannie Vianney.....
I wish you all a very happy, healthy and colourful 2014!!!
