New Barielle Shades! Swatches and Review

Barielle recently added 90 new shades to their core line. Yes, 90! I'm very excited to show you four of their new polishes today. Eli's Magic, Shannon's Attitude, End of the Rainbow, and Starry Sky.

I received them all in the this cute sparkly bag with an adorable sneaker keychain. How nice is that packaging!

Eli's Magic is described as "hot pink". It is a pretty hot pink creme polish. This is two coats. It was opaque in one coat, but the second coat made it smoother. I love this shade of bubblegum pink.

Shannon's Attitude is described as "jelly purple with foil flakes". It is a purple jelly packed with holo glitter, both bar and micro. I would not call them flakes. But they are gorgeous glitters. My index finger is three coats. My middle finger is two coats over white. My ring finger is one coat over Barielle Grape Escape. My pinky is one coat over black. I love Shannon's Attitude most over purple and black; you can really see the micro glitter in those two pairings. I would like to try it over a light purple as well. Its a thick jelly, so its important to give it time to dry between each coat. The time is worth the results.

End of the Rainbow is described as "sheer aqua green with shimmer." The description is spot on. It took three coats to be opaque. This polish is just gorgeous in person. It applies very well. Given with only coat it is sheer, the layering possibilities are endless. I already want to see what it looks like layered over black.

Starry Sky is described as "jelly clear with silver foil flakes". It is a clear jelly packed with medium size silver hex glitter. I would not call them flakes. My index finger is two coats. My middle, ring, and pink fingers are one coat over white, Grape Escape, and black. The glitter spreads out very well. Starry Sky would be a fun addition to any polish.

All of the swatches are done with Barielle Nail Rebuilding Protein and Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender, base coat and top coat. Both of which I'll be reviewing in a post later today.

Barielle Shades retail for $8 on their website

  1. Nice shades. I enjoyed Barielle before they revamped and brought out all these new shades.
