Onto the polish! Today I have a brand new collection from Barielle, that has soft romantic and dreamy colors that are warm, rich, and feminine. From the name "Velvets", I actually thought this was a collection of matte polishes, but they are actually all creams and one subtle shimmer. Let's get right into it.
Uptown Girl is a soft beige polish with pink undertones. This polish is on the sheer side but does build up to be opaque in three thin coats. I have to say....I think this color is absolutely stunning. It's very soft and pretty but I like that it doesn't look sheer.
My Tan Blazer-
My Tan Blazer is described as a tan camel color. I have a love of camels, so I really like the fact that Barielle described it as a camel color. I think that is spot on. I found this polish to have a really opaque and fantastic formula. I used two easy coats below.
My Week Away-
My Week Away is the only polish of the collection that wasn't a true cream. This polish is a dusty pink with very subtle shimmer which reads to me as green/gold. The formula was smooth and buttery and I used two easy coats.
Cream 'n Sugar-
Cream 'n Sugar is a very, very sheer pink. I used three coats of this polish below and you can see how sheer it is. I think this would be good if you wanted to throw on a quick layer of polish to not have plain nails.
Sexy Mood is described as a muted magenta cream. To me it looks like a dusty "radiant orchid" color. Very on-trend for this year. This formula was great again, two easy coats below.
A Little Exotic-
Last up, A Little Exotic, which is a muted, dusty rose. The formula was good on this one and it took two coats.
While some of these colors aren't really "me", I can certainly appreciate the great formulas on these polishes. My hands down favorite was Uptown Girl. These shades are available now and can be found on Barielle's website here. ALSO, I wanted to note that there is a second new collection from Barielle which is waiting at home to be swatched...think bright summery colors :)
