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.
In Good Taste is a cool-toned chocolate brown cream. Doesn’t this remind you of OPI You Don’t Know Jacques? It does for me and I really love it. It’s a little thin so I used three coats, but it builds up nicely to this sumptuous shade. Oooh I used sumptuous!
Very Bare is a sheer white/pink shade. As you can see I had some issues with streaks here. This is three thin coats but it still didn’t cover that great for me. With three coats it gets a little thick on the nail (see pinkie finger) so it’s not the best one here for sure.
Pillow Talk is a soft peach cream. This one starts off very sheer and a bit streaky but does build up to be nearly completely even with three coats.
No Not Now is a light pink/brown shade with silvery shimmer. The formula was nice enough, no streaks no issues and I only needed two coats. It’s not my kind of shade personally, but looks very “professional” somehow.
I Got A Headache is a light caramel brown with intense golden/pink shimmer. I didn’t expect this level of glow when I swatched it, it’s really pretty! It is on the thinner side so you will need three coats most likely. Very nice shade and unusual.
Overall: I am not really a fan of nude nail polish in general unless there is a weird twist to a shade. Having said that there are some really nice shades here that don’t really seem like the typical nude polish. In Good Taste is such a creamy saturated brown, I really love it. And I Got A Headache is rather fiery looking, which I love.
