Today I have pretty sweet Spring collection. I’m a little late posting this one since most of us are looking toward summer collections or even fall in some cases. However, it’s still gorgeous and worth another look. I really like this collection as a whole, it’s chock full of bright and gorgeous spring creme shades.
First is Green Apple Chew which is a bright chartreuse creme shade. Normally I shy away from shades like this since they are so bright and fall into that ugly/pretty category but this one is gorgeous. It’s actually unique in my collection but OPI Don’t Bach to Me is a similar shade but lighter.
This is Banana Drop, a light yellow creme. Though I love yellows like these, I usually have issues with application. Banana Drop applied well but it’s the only one that needed three coats.
Lilac Jelly Bean is dusty lavender shade. I can’t get enough of shades like this, I think I have 10-15 of them in my collection and love each one. Definitely a must have shade.
Orange Parfait is the spring sister of Barielle Rusted Vintage Boots that came out this past fall. It’s a pretty cantaloupe shade that’s perfect for spring.
Last but not least, we have Blue Cotton Candy. A lovely teal shade, this is the only one in the collection with this gorgeous silver shimmer.
Green Apple Chew and Blue Cotton Candy are the stand outs of this collection and my favorites though you really can’t go wrong with any of them. With the exception of Banana Drop, each of these needed two coats for full opacity.

Normally I don’t post sales because by the time I’m finished picking out which polishes I want, the sale is too late to post about! However, Barielle was kind enough to give me advance notice of this particular promotion so I could post it first thing in the morning and everyone would have enough time to take advantage of such a great deal.
Pick any two (or more!) Barielle shades and receive a free Nail Strengthener Cream (.5 ounce). The sale starts January 7th and ends January 14, 2013.

Recently I received the new Barielle Dazzling Diamonds collection to review. There are five sparkly beauties in this collection. There are two that could possible be worn alone but the other three are definitely for layering.I applied two coats of each shade over two coats of Wet N Wild French White. On to the pretties.
Cherry Blossom Sparkler is one of the shades that may be worn alone. It has small red glitter in a red jelly base.
Purple Hearts is my favorite of the bunch. Its a clear base with purple, fuchsia and holographic glitter.
Pink Diamonds is a denser pink microglitter polish, its the other shade in this collection that can be worn alone. It almost reminds me of China Glaze Material Girl but the glitter is much much finer.
Stardust is super fine blue, green and yellow glitter in a clear base. On top of the white polish, it looks like shimmery snow but its really difficult to photograph accurately.
Lastly is Ebony Rainbow, a multi colored fine glitter mixture in a clear base.

Today I have the new Summer Fun Collection from Barielle. This collection is a set of five summery creme polishes that are just perfect for summer. In typical Barielle fashion, all five are super easy to apply and wear well. I’m wearing two coats of polish in each photo.
First is Mint Ice Cream Cone which looks exactly like its namesake. A clean light mint creme polish and I wish I had brown glitter to make chocolate chips with. I really like this shade even though it makes my skin look more red.
Pink Flip Flops is a baby pink shade with blue undertones. This is super easy to apply and wears well.
Peach Popsicle is the lighter coral of the group, its a little darker than what I would consider peachy. It also looks better on me than a normal peach.
Ocean Breeze is a bright aqua shade. This is my favorite shade of the bunch.
Berry Go “Round is the bright coral in the collection. I am so loving corals in the summertime.
To me, this collection is the epitome of summer polishes. It may seem like a standard summer collection but that’s because it works. You have the bright corals, the pastels and the aquas that are so in season right now. Ocean Breeze is my favorite of this collection followed closely by Berry Go ‘Round.
