*Press SamplesHi there everyone. Today is a good day. Yesterday I mentioned that I had to do a report from start to finish, something that usually takes at least two weeks for the smallest project, and by some kind of miracle I did it. So, that is done, and my other project I've been slaving over for a month is done and gone. I finally reached the end of the worst of it and to celebrate, I took the day off :) Now I can finally get back to blogging and vlogging, back to my life, and I am super excited about that.
Today I have a long overdue collection from Barielle. I've had these for awhile but I've just been completely swamped. Ever since my first time trying Barielle, I have been really impressed. This collection is a little up in the air for me, let's get right into it below.
Take Me Shopping- Ummm, yes please. I would like someone to take me shopping ;) First up, is a bright deep hot pink. I have only recently tried colors like this and they really are fun. The color is beautiful and vibrant and the formula is perfect. I used two easy coats below. Total win!
Money Talks-Okay, here's the biggest problem polish. I wanted to love this polish because it's a dusty muted green mint but it had a problem formula. The formula was thick and gloopy and it had a weird reaction to topcoat, changing color and becoming a murky yellower green. This was my second swatch of this polish and as you can see, I couldn't get it to smooth out. I used three coats below.
My City Apartment-Now let's recover from the last polish with another favorite of mine. My City Apartment is a cool light grey. I am a huge fan of grey polishes, I think they look so clean on the nail and so chic and I wish more companies would do grey polishes. The color is perfect for Spring and the formula was great. I used two coats below.
Designer's Shoe-Next up is what Barielle describes as a purple with a blush tone. I think this is more of a periwinkle blue. I believe this one is the other color changer, meaning that the color changed and became deeper when topcoat was applied. I liked the color but didn't care for the fact that topcoat changed the color. I used two coats below.
Fire Me Up-Next up, a bright fiery orange. I have quickly become a fan of pretty much all orange polishes and I think they look really good with my fair skin. I really liked this polish, it was crazy bright and I used two easy coats below.
First Class Ticket-Last up, is a pretty sky blue cream. I could not for the life of me get the third swatch of this to load. I really liked this color and I used two easy coats below.
So there you have it, the Barielle Vibrants Collection. I think this collection is hit or miss. My favorites are Take Me Shopping and My City Apartment. What do you think of this collection?
