Barielle Style In Argyle Fall Collection Swatches & Review!

Today I have for you Barielle's Fall 2010 collection called Style in Argyle! I love this collection, I'm that girl that is always searching for the perfect brown polish and Barielle gave me a whole bunch of options with this collection! As a whole, I really love this collection but if you aren't into brown it might not be for you. The formula on these was absolutely fantastic. A few of the Barielle polishes I've tried in the past have been on the thicker side but these were not like that at all! Gotta say I love the names of the polishes too, they make me want to snuggle up in a big soft sweater, if we had a Fall season here in California these would definitely remind me of it! Unfortunately our seasons in Orange County,  CA consist of Hot, Not as Hot, Warm and the occasional "freezing" day where the temp is in the 50's haha

First up is Cashmere of Loose Me, the lone shimmer in this collection.It's a really soft creamy looking brown with a secret copper shimmer. When the bottle hit the light right this one was a stunner, unfortunately the shimmer was pretty much unnoticeable unless you were in direct sunlight and the sun was hitting the nail. I do love the color though, regardless of secret shimmer! Wish any of my pictures would have showed how great it was in the sun, but I couldn't capture it, even in my light box :(

Next up, Cowl Of The Wild, this one is my favorite of the whole collection! Barielle describes this as a mushroom taupe color and I think that is pretty accurate. I wore this for about 2 1/2 days, which for me is rare! I didn't have any issues with chipping or anything, it wore like iron!

Auro Angora is a gorgeous mustard color, I looooove it! It didn't really flatter my skin tone, but I'll wear it anyway! This polish was the one that intrigued me the most when I saw the press release for this collection. It did not disappoint! Sometimes yellow can be a pain to apply but this one was like butter! No issues whatsoever with streaking or patchiness. I actually only needed ONE COAT! What?!? One coat of yellow? yeah...amazing!

Tight Knit is described as a purple brown,  I've seen other swatches of it and on other people it looked a lot more purple. For some reason my skin is pulling out more of a reddish purple tone, which I like but I'm kinda sad it's not more purple. Such is life I guess!

Wool You Marry Me? Is the described as a plum brown, it leans more reddish for me though. Gotta say, this is another winner for me. I love this color. The formula on this one was my favorite of the whole collection, the polish pretty much just applied itself!

Last but not least is Unraveled Rush, a dark chocolate brown! This polish makes me want candy, it kinda looks like I'm wearing a Hershey bar on my nails...who doesn't love that?!? I foresee myself wearing this one a bunch of times later this year!

So what do you guys think, do you like the collection? I think Barielle hit it out of the ball park, this collection screams Fall to me. All of the polishes were so nice to apply and that kind of consistency in an entire collection is pretty rare!

Barielle polishes are available on their website or they can now be purchased at Ulta! These retail for $8!

  1. I love these browns! I'm not a brown polish kind of person, but the hershey's brown makes me want to change my mind a little!

  2. I really like Cashmere or Lose & I think Wool You Marry Me would really flatter my skintone (& it would coordinate with the lip colors I've been choosing lately).

  3. Woah I love these colors! My favorite has to be Tight Knit! Great post! :D

  4. I love the light browns and mustard! I can't wear deep browns but the light ones are gorj

  5. I liked more the Cowl Of The Wild!

  6. i am i love or hate this collection...big sigh :)
