|Lace & Lacquers' Perfect Barielle Manicure items|
I was asked by Barielle to create my Perfect Barielle Manicure! I stuck to the basics because 90% of the time when I do a manicure, it's quick and simple. Best part about this? While I get to try out these products I selected, Barielle was kind enough to provide a set for me to send to you to try, too!
|Barielle Love Your Nails remover wipes|
First step in my manicure is always to remove my polish. Weather it be an old mani, left over swatch, or 10 colors on one hand - it's gotta go! I used Barielle's acetone-free Love Your Nails remover wipes. I think these are great because if you're traveling or you just want to get polish off - they're ready to go and not messy at all. Not to mention they also moisturize your cuticles while you remove the polish. AWESOME. I used one wipe for my entire hand. It easily removed the creme polish I had on. I did have an indie shimmer polish that was a little difficult, but I got it off :P
|Barielle Instant Nail Hardener|
I don't know about you but a nail hardener is one treatment I can't skip for my nails. I'll regret it when I open the patio door if I do skip it! I to use Duri Rejuvacote as a base coat and it has been VERY kind to my nails. I was excited to see that Barille's Instant Liquid Nail Hardener is a similar product! It can be used as a base coat and a top coat (if you want, I don't but my mom does!). I can't wait to see how my nails respond to this! If you haven't tried a hardener - now's your chance.
|Barielle No-Chip Speed Dry Top Coat and Intensive Nail Renewal Oil|
For my mani, I chose Barielle's No-Chip Speed Dry. If you're looking for a quick dry top coat similar to Seche Vite, this isn't it haha. It doesn't dry as fast... but I've read somewhere that a slower drying top coat can make your mani last longer. So, what the hey! Let's give it a shot. I don't recommend this for nail art. It smears it and it turned my white polish... purple? Yipes. But it's great over a solid color lol
Next is Barielle's Intensive Nail Renew Oil. Cuticle Moisturizer is a must for strong nails and nice lookin' cuticles! I'm not usually a big fan of oil but this absorbs nicely and quickly. It also has a nice, very light floral scent. Me likey.
|Barielle Blue Capri|
In my quick basic manis, I usually go for a fun color if I'm not adding glitter to it. I chose a fun bright, cobalt blue- Barielle Blue Capri! It's kinda weird though, because in my swatch (and other's) it's a bright awesome blue. But before you add a top coat - it's a dusty blue... haha it's really weird. Then, when I woke up this morning it was the dusty dark blue again. I'M SO CONFUSED Y'ALL!!! I mean, either way I'd choose either color for a quick mani, but what in the world? I've never had this happen... On the bright side, no staining haha. So take that for what it's worth? Sorry I chose such a crazy polish for you hahahaha
