China Glaze Get Carried Away is one of the polishes from the Cirque du Soleil collection that they have out now. The collection was already mostly picked over by the time I go to it, but I was able to snag this one. There are other nice bright creams available from the collection, but I felt I have similar enough colors that I didn't feel the need to explore. I really wanted the other top coat glitter, but none was available. Ce la vie.

Here are some swatches for your enjoyment. On the nail you can see the bar glitter a little better. I put one layer of China Glaze Get Carried Away over China Glaze Red Satin on most of my nails. As you can see the black-ish base isn't that dark, and doesn't seem to change the color of the nail polish beneath it too much. On my ring finger I have two coats of Get Carried Away on it's own. You can probably add another coat and get it opaque, but I think that would take away from clearly enjoying the multitude of glitter. I'm not a huge fan of this particular combo, but I think with another base color, it would look nicer.
