Barielle Sweet Treats Collection

(Please excuse the lighting lines, I'm still trying to get this lightbox thang down) This evening I have the Sweet Treats set by Barielle to show you! I remember when this came out last year, I'm so excited I have my hands on this collection in my hands :D After the jump I have my review of these sweet colors!

Barielle Orange Parfait

Orange Parfait is a salmon-y orange creme color. I liked this on my nails a lot more than I thought I would. I don't think I have anything exactly this color in my collection, so I welcomed it with happiness! I did 3 coats of Orange Parfait. It would of been good to go in 2 coats but there was some bald spots that needed evening out. The application was great. The dry time was okay, it could of been better though.

Barielle Blue Cotton is a dusty teal blue creme with silver micro shimmer. I love this color so hard, now I'm wondering if I have a creme without the shimmer in my collex., because I need it. This had a great app and the dry time was a lot better than it's orange sisterfren. No issues or complaints from me here.

I compared it to Butter London Victoriana (below) because they both looked pretty darn similar:

As you can see the shimmer in Butter London is 100x more extreme than in Blue Cotton. The color is pretty identical. I preferred the Blue Cotton application to the Victoriana application though.  I don't think you need both if you have one or the other.

Barielle Lilac Jelly Bean

Barielle Lilac Jelly Bean is a dusty, lavender creme polish. I love dusty cremes, I think they're my #1 favorite (besides glitter... of course lol). I think this is a great shade for almost any occasion! My new found purple obsession has still yet to depart. I did 2 coats of Lilac Jelly Beam. It had a great application. The dry time was alright, it was better than Orange Parfait but not as great as Blue Cotton.

Barielle Banana Drop

Barielle Banana Drop is the perfect banana yellow creme. It reminds me of a banana Wonka Laffy Taffy! I freakin' love pale yellow polishes, and I am always in search of the perfect one :P (China Glaze Lemon Fizz is still my #1. The perfect pale yellow polish is like finding the perfect white creme polish). I did 3 coats of Banana Drop. The application gave me no issues and evened out nicely after coat 3. This had a pretty good dry time for a pale yellow polish, which is hard to find.

Barielle Green Apple Chew

Barielle Green Apple Chew is an awesome bright lime green creme polish. I have a handful of bright lime cremes in my collection, and I think this is by far my favorite. It freakin' radiates awesome. It's so bright, yet so creamy and perfect. I did 3 coats of Green Apple Chew. The dry time was alright, it was similar to Orange Parfait. The application was great without issues :]

I did a little sweet nail art with these colors!
