Barielle Me Couture Collection, Fall 2014: Swatches and Review

*press sample*
Hello gentle reader.


Barielle Shades for Fall 2014 presents the Me Couture Collection, this palette of six sophisticated shades, including classic and intense colours are perfect for this time of year.


All of these swatches are two coats topped with Seche Vite, unless otherwise specified.


This creamy raspberry crelly will brighten your nails all Autumn, long.


Cobalt blue crelly. Yowza! I am loving this one.


This creamy rust crelly has a hint of pink and a beautiful, hidden shimmer that fires in bright light.


Ever so slightly dusty grape purple crelly. I needed three coats for this swatch, it had a tough time with my ridges.


This grey based taupe crelly is sophisticated and chic. I dig grey polish and this one is no exception.


Haw hard am I into this deep sea green crelly? I ask you. Rawr! I did three coats on my pinkie and ring nails because ridges.

These five creamy crellies and one shimmer all have formulas of the fantastic. Viscosity is nearly perfect, these polishes flow off of the somewhat skinny, round brush, sit their asses down where they are told to, slip up the nail plate and self level very nicely. All six of these polishes are a tad thin, a little streaky on the first coat then become perfectly opaque and smooth on the second coat. I did need three coats for Soho at Night to be fully opaque over my ridges. All of these polishes dry in good time, even faster, topped with Seche Vite.

I did a little nail art when I polished my nails after swatching these polishes. I applied Boho Chic and Soho at Night on random alternating nails then did some glitter on my pinkies, thumbs and index nails. On my middle and ring nails, I stamped Autumn leaves with China Glaze 2030 from plate BM H-11. I am going to be heartbroken when my bottle of 2030 is all gone. It is my favorite, perfect gold stamping polish and it is no longer available.
