Simple Swatch: My First Barielle

As I mentioned in my IMATS LA post, I not only got a lot of polish from the show, but I stopped by a place that Jen The PolishAholic calls "nail polish heaven" while I was down there. It was only 5 minutes from our hotel so it worked out great! I got like 10 polishes there, and to my surprise they had Barielle! I have no idea where to buy them besides online, so I took advantage of the buy 2 get 1 free deal they had. And I died a little when I found this beauty:

This is Barielle- Falling Star, made back in 2009! It was in a collaboration collection between blogger, All Lacquered Up and Barielle's celebrity manicurist, Elle! I love how so many bloggers have collaborated with nail polish companies, their hard work really pays off. I hope to either do a collaboration or make my own polish line one day! Those are HIGH HOPES. I have been looking into how to go about making polishes though, and I already have a great idea of what my first collection would be!

Okay, enough rambling, and more about this amazing polish. It is a nice thick creme with tiny copper micro glitters evenly dispersed throughout the creme base. I was worried it wouldn't apply evenly through out my nail since the glitters were cluttered in certain spots of the bottle. But I didn't have that problem at all! I applied 2 coats, and they were the perfect consistency, not too thin or too thick. I love that it almost as an indie polish feel to it too!

Hope you love this as much as I do! I hope to wear the other shade I got next. I gave away the third shade to my mom's coworkers daughter. She is being bullied at school so my mom asked if I could get her some fun polishes, and I hooked her up! She even wrote me a cute little thank you card. That was a good deed of the day for me :)


  1. This is a very interesting color combination. Not sure it would look good on me, but its wonderful on your nails.

    1. I think this shade would look good on all skin types! So far the longevity isn't the best though :(
