Barielle Falling Star

Barielle Falling Star

It’s Monday again, hope you had a great weekend!

A couple days ago I was going through my nail polish collection, weeding out shades I never wear, don’t like, have dupes of, etc. when I came across some stunning shades I kind of forgot about. The thing about having a 5,000+ bottle collection is, you don’t (well I don’t) remember about 95% of what you own! It’s hard to see them because they are stuffed to the brim inside drawers so I have to actually pull them out and even shake them up sometimes to see the color.

Barielle Falling Star, which came out in 2010 as part of the All Lacquered Up collection, was one of the shades I came across. I had a very strong urge to wear it and re-do my swatch photos, so here we are!

Barielle Spring Vibrants for 2014

Barielle Spring Vibrants

Barielle Spring Vibrants for 2014 is a happy little collection of six new spring cremes.

I feel like I am reviewing these so late, and I kind of am actually (I’ve had them for like 6 weeks)! Having said that, I think I am mostly done with spring nail collections, so going forward you will probably be seeing mostly summer shades.

Anyway as mentioned these are all creme shades. Some are bright, some are soft and subdued. All had a nice, if thick, formula and covered in just two coats. Great coverage I have to say!

Barielle Sophisticated Lady for Fall 2013

Barielle Sophisticated Lady

The Barielle Sophisticated Lady for fall 2013 collection features five shades. One of them you have seen before in their other fall 2013 release.

The colors are as follows:

  • London High Tea – A bright pink creme with golden shimmer
  • In Good Taste – A chocolate brown/taupe creme
  • Dinner at 8 – A bright rich red creme
  • Tres Chic – A deep blue creme
  • Edgy – A vampy purple creme

The formula was really great with all of these colors. I used two coats for all but Dinner at 8, which required three thin ones because it’s a bit jelly-like. For Tres Chic, which is very opaque, I have just one coat on!

Barielle Nude and Naughty Collection for Fall 2013

Barielle Nude and Naughty Collection

Happy Monday to ya! Was your weekend good? Do anything exciting and maybe Halloween-y?

I started a pumpkin painting project yesterday, which has been fun. I got the idea from the October issue of Family Circle magazine. I will probably do a blog post about it once I’m done. It’s so fun and I have so many ideas now I want to buy more pumpkins to paint!

But now, back to business.

The Barielle Nude and Naughty Collection for fall 2013 features, you guessed it, nudes!

But all of these aren’t sheer or boring nudes. A couple have glowing shimmer. And one is a rich creamy shade that reminds me a lot of one of my favorite polish shades ever.

The formula was ok to good depending on the shade.

Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection for Summer 2013

Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection

What up party people? Hope your Friday is going swimmingly thus far. I’m so glad it’s Friday aren’t you? It’s been a long hellishly hot week in the Bay Area this week. And by hot I don’t mean 78 degrees. Most people think San Francisco/Bay Area peeps are weather wimps (and we kinda are when it comes to cold weather) but I mean 95-100 at my house. Blech! I love me some hot weather but let’s try keeping it around 80-85 ok?

Speaking of hotness the new Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection for summer 2013 features five new hot creme shades. It’s been a really long time since I reviewed Barielle. Maybe even three years?! They kind of fell off my radar but I think they are making somewhat of a comeback now.

The formula of these five was really, really good. Their cremes are really thick, but not in a bad way. They cover like a dream and you only need one to two coats. Fabulous!
