Barielle Gentle Breeze Collection (L->R) Heaven Sent,
Champagne Bubbles, Pink Parasol, Gray Sky, and Under the Sea

Hi guys! Today I have swatches of the latest collection from Barielle, Spring 2015 Gentle Breeze Collection. This collection is inspired by soft, gentle and eclectic hues of Spring. I think eclectic is a great word to describe this collection! Check it out after the jump.

Barielle Heaven Sent
Barielle Heaven Sent

Heaven Sent is a "soft, creamy aquamarine". This is a very pretty light blue! It's a bright blue without being too bright. I really like it, that's all I have to say haha.

I did 2 coats of Heaven Sent. The formula was smooth an opaque, a great creme. No issues with dry time either.

Barielle Champagne Bubbles

Champagne Bubbles is described as a "creamy tangerine". I don't see tangerine, I see a camel color with a bit more orange than usual. What do you think? Tangerines are a bright, more true orange to me *shrugs*. Not really liking this color too much, just okay, but that's just me!

I did 4 coats of Champagne Bubbles (that name and the description together confuses me so bad!). It was a little thin and on the sheer side, so it took a lot of building up. It was 100% opaque after 4 coats. No dry time issues since it's quite thin, it dried quickly between coats.

Pink Parasol is a "creamy strawberry ice", bubblegum pink polish.  It's a typical Spring nail color, but it's a nice color! Also, not sure what strawberry ice is.

I did 2 coats of Pink Parasol. This one was similar to Heaven Sent, opaque with a nice smooth formula. No issues to report with application or dry time.

Barielle Gray Sky

Next up is Gray Sky, a "rich, creamy glacier gray". This has a slightly frosty finish, not as obnoxious with the brush strokes as a true frost.  It's a nice light grey polish. Not my favorite but I dig it.

I did 3 coats of Gray Sky, almost got away with 2 but my ridges... It had a nice application that was easy to build up and was more opaque than I expected. No issues with dry time.

Barielle Under the Sea

Shouldn't be a shocker that this is my favorite, I mean how can it not be?! Under the Sea is a "rich, sea scuba blue shimmer". This is a dark teal color, very pretty!

I did 3 coats of Under the Sea. It had a slightly thin formula, so 3 coats was needed to build it up. You can see that it is kind of thin because my stupid ridges are showing haha. No issues though. It was easy to build up, the formula was nice, and the dry time was fine.

Barielle Gentle Breeze Collection Nail Art

So this nail art idea popped into my head using most of the colors from this collection. I think it would of looked nicer if I made the stripes thinner? Didn't come out how I imagined it, but that's ok!
