Barielle Swatches pt. 1

Hey guys, did you know that Barielle is launching at Ulta? In addition to carrying their new Fall & Winter Collections they are also carrying 16 of their core colors! I've seen these already at 2 of the Ulta's near me, the are in the same area as OPI, China Glaze & Orly. Today I have for you the first 5 of 16 shades they will be carrying. Barielle retails for $6 at Ulta ($2 cheaper than Barielle.com!) and for the month of October it's on a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale...so if you like these now would be the time to go get them! I'll try to get the rest of the shades Ulta is offering up this week but the weather forecast says rain till Thursday so we'll see!

First up is Sailors Delight, a great light pink. It looked like candy on my nails! The formula was good for a color like this, a bit streaky but it settled nicely! This is 2 coats.

Slate of Affairs, this one you have probably seen before. It's a beautiful royal blue with an amazing hidden shimmer. You can't really see the shimmer too heavily in my pictures since the sun hasn't been cooperating with me for a last few days. :( If you click the picture and look at it big you can see it though! This is 2 coats

Euphoric, this one had some issues...not with the polish but with the picture taking. I tried every light and it's not coming out 100% color accurate. So imagine this a little more orange-y. Euphoric is an Orangey Red that leans heavily to orange. Not normally my type of color but once I got it on I really liked it with my skin tone. Unfortunately for me my Grandma loved this one too so not sure it will ever grace my fingertips again lol. The formula on this one was a little thin, I used 3 coats for full opacity

Expressive is a creamy light lilac polish. It gives me the same kind of warm fuzzies that I got from Sailors Delight, the formula was also very similar. A bit streaky but it settled and looks perfect! This is 2 coats

Grape Escape, a purple creme. Not unique really, but pretty gorgeous. Looks like it's probably a close dupe to OPI- Funky Dunky and China Glaze- Grape Pop. The formula on this one was fantastic, my favorite of this bunch. I only needed 1 perfect coat for full opacity!

  1. Yeah I'm also a big sucker for purples. It doesn't matter how "unique" the shade is. To me it's always a plus!

  2. I'm so happy that Barielles are at Ulta now! Even though the nearest Ulta is three hours from me, I go to that city fairly often.

  3. I love Sailor's Delight. Must own a bottle.

  4. Loving Expressive- lilac pinks are my favourite.

  5. "Expressive" is so beautiful!!! This brand has some great shades.

  6. I do have Slate of Affairs. That's my favorite Barielle polish. The purples are gorgeous. Nice that they're cheaper than the Barielle website.

  7. Wow, very nice colors... especially pink and purple - looks great! By the way, nice nails and a good Blog :-)
