Today I have for you another Barielle collection I've had my eye on for awhile now. This is the Carnival Fiesta Collection! It is filled with metallics and sparkly awesomeness galore! After the jump I have the typical swatch and review, along with a few comparisons :]

Rio's Rockin' Bands is a metallic medium purple. The shade of purple is quite gorgeous! The end product is a little streaky for me, but is still a pretty polish. I can't say I have a metallic purple, don't quote me though LOL!

I did 2 coats of Rio's Rocking Bands. I didn't have any issues with the application, it was smooth and easy to work with. The dry time also was without issues.

Barielle describes Holiday Madness as a "metallic olive green". Not a totally unique color but still a really great sparkly, metallic green! It was still a little streaky, but less streaky than it's purple sister. It's VERY similar, if not a dupe for, Polish and Co's Nate's Eyes. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the two.

I did 3 coats of Holiday Madness. I was hoping for 2, but I had a feeling 3 would be the winner. This polish had another great application and dry time without any issues.

Oh have I been lusting after this polish for a bit! AND NOW IT'S MINE MWAHAHA!! Jillian's Jammin' is a teal jelly polish with bright turquoise glass fleck shimmer that shifts to a bright purple at certain angles. This was so much prettier than I could ever imagine. It's so sparkly and perfect.

I did 2 coats of Jillian's Jammin' over China Glaze Turned up Turquoise. It was a little too sheer on it's own to cover up my tips. I didn't have any issues at all. Application and dry time were great! However, I do recommend waiting between coats if you are going to build it up on its own.

Another not so unique color, but still gorgeous nonetheless. Lindsay's Dancin is a a shimmery red polish. A nice color to have on hand. I think I have a Zoya and Sinful Colors pretty identical to this polish, I didn't think about it until now though (naturally haha). I was happy this wasn't streaky like the purple and the green.

I did 2 coats of Lindsay's Dancin'. No issues to report at all what so ever. Application was smooth and dry time was great.

Last but not least is Wanna Samba, a dark grey sheer polish that shifts to purple at different angles. I layered it over black since it was pretty sheer on its own. It kind of reminded me of the gradient I did with You Polish's holos! I did compare it to Butter London Knackered. I had never swatched Knackered and they looked very similar in the bottle... as you can see they're not dupes by any means.

I did 2 coats of Wanna Samba over a black polish. I'm sure you can build it up, it wasn't as sheer as Jillian's Jammin', but my nail line was still visible after 3 coats. The application was without any problems and the dry time gave me nothing to complain about.
