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!

Good morning!

Today I have the brand spankin’ new piCture pOlish Frosting from ‘Chelle at Cosmetic Cupcake. How fitting is this name and shade for her? Her inspiration was cupcakes, of course, so she created this sweet looking glittery treat for the nails.

The base is a pale milky pink and it’s packed with small hex violet, fuchsia and silver glitter and some larger silver hearts glitter pieces for fun!

OPI Significant Other Color

OPI Significant Other Color is a really pretty metallic duochrome that was missing from my collection until I recently saw it at Ulta.

It’s a pink lavender shade that has strong flashes of green/gold. While it’s on the more sheer and light side from what I normally like, I can’t help but love it because of the strong duochrome finish.

Happy Saturday! I’ve got piCture pOlish Shocked by Shatter Me Claire for ya today.

Shocked is a hot raspberry pink shade with holographic glitter scattered throughout. She named it “Shocked” because she said she was shocked when piCture pOlish contacted her to create the shade and because she’s a Kylie Minogue fan and that’s the name of one of her songs.

KB Shimmer Summer 2013 Collection Swatches and Review

KB Shimmer Summer 2013

Hello there people of the world. How are you on this fine day?

Perhaps you have heard of KB Shimmer Nail Polish? I had been hearing about it and seeing amazing swatches of the shades for awhile when I decided I needed to jump on this bandwagon. So today I’ve got six of the nine shades from the KB Shimmer Summer 2013 Collection.

Here is something I love right off the bat from the brand. They came with some instructions on how to apply some of the more “difficult” shades. I really appreciate this because sometimes you just can’t get a shade to look nice because oh say it has a satin finish and is supposed to dry matte but you don’t know that. It’s not always totally obvious how every nail polish finish should be just from applying it.
