Designer Shoes, and First Class Ticket

Happy Hump Day! Today, I have the 2nd Spring collection from Barielle to share with you. These polishes make up the Vibrants Collection. If you missed the more neutral, Velvets Collection, click here. I personally favor this collection more, but I'm a big fan of color :P Check out my swatch, review, comparison, nail art after the jump!


Barielle Fire Me Up

These first 2 colors are bright and AWESOME.  Fire Me Up is a "deep, fiery bright orange" creme. This looks a lot like the neon red polishe I was obsessed with last summer. I like how bright and glowing this orange is, it truly is a gorgeous color.

I did 2 coats of Fire Me Up. It had a great, smooth application and an even more impressive dry time. I can't complain.

Barielle Take Me Shopping

Take Me Shopping (will you??!) is a "bright, hot pink" creme. Hot pinks are one of the only 2 pinks I will wear and this one is right on the money! It's bright and it glows. Can't go wrong with that!

I did 2 coat of Take Me Shopping. The application was smooth and the dry time was awesome. The formula and dry time was identical to Fire Me Up, above.

My City Apartment is described as a "light gray" creme. There does seem to be a touch of blue to it, which is why I compared it to Zoya Kristen. No dupe though, as you can see.  I'm not usually a fan of grey polishes on me but this one is just the right shade of grey for me. I think HAHAHA

I did 2 coats of My City Apartment. I had no issues with this polish's application or dry time, everything was awesome. :]


Barielle Money Talks

Barielle Money Talks is a "mint green" creme. You know out of so many minty colored greens, I don't think I have a single dupe LOL The mint greens I did have weren't comparable to Money Talks. However, it did look very similar to China Glaze For Audrey, so I compared the two for you! Now you can see how green Money Talks is.

I did 3 coats of Money Talks plus top coat. This is the only one I had an issue with. The application was kind of strange, making it dry uneven and lumpy looking (you can't tell in the pictures...). I tried different brush strokes trying to see if it was me, but I couldn't fix it :[ I wonder if adding thinner to it would help? The dry time was great however, I can't complain there!

Designer Shoes is a "purple with bluish tone" creme polish. For some reason this purple really reminds me of jelly beans haha It's a very nice medium purple polish. A great shade for spring, too!

I did 2 coats of Designer Shoes. After the application of Money Talks, Barielle redeemed themselves with an easy and smooth application of Designer Shoes. Dry time was like the others, great and without any problems.

Barielle First Class Ticket

Not sure why it looks so vibrant in the last picture, looks normal on my phone - must be my monitor! Haha. Annnyyywayyysss - First Class Ticket is a "sky blue" creme. Makes me wanna draw clouds on it! Haha

I did 2 coats of of First Class Ticket. It gave me no issues upon application, which was smooth. Dry time was also awesome and quick.

Dotticures are my favorite way to use my dotting tools, I love them even more over a clear glitter! I use all the colors, except for My City Apartment, and created this quick rainbow dotticure :D I added Butter London's matte top coat to make it even more awesome! What'dya think?
