I have a fun and bold color collection to show you today from Barielle. It's a five piece collection called "On the Edge".
I bought this set for $13 about a year ago from TransDesign.com and it's been sitting in my Helmer unused for over a year: like many of my polishes. What can I say, I buy a lot of polish. Oops! I bought this set because I like bright colors and I thought the names were cool.
Anyway here's some swatches and simple nail art.
Do Unto Others
Two coats Barielle "Do Unto Others" with topcoat
Gotta Have Fate
Two coats of Barielle "Gotta Have Fate" with topcoat
Three coats of Barielle "Buddha-ful" with topcoat. I thought I would like this color the best. It's a nude polish with lots of green flaky goodness. I thought it was a layering polish but I tried layering it over the other colors and it looked awful! Like putting milk on top of the colors. Maybe if I tried it over white or a nude cream I may have liked it better.
Two coats of Barielle "Sweet Addiction" with topcoat
Two coats of Barielle "Lemon Drops" with topcoat. This is my favorite of the bunch. Such a bright fantastic yellow. Beware, these photos might hurt your eyes. :)
Here are the polishes I used on my accent nails: Konad Special White and Black, Sally Hansen "Rapid Red", The Nail Junkie "Shamrock" and Red Dog Designs "My Funny Valentine"
While I'm not thrilled by the fact that they put two almost identical colors in this set, I do really like these polishes. The formula was good and 5 polishes for $13?!!!!! You can't beat that. Barielle makes lots of these sets and I would eventually like to get more of them. Check out this selection...and I'm sure this isn't all of them:
So what do you think of this set? Do you own any Barielle polishes? What do you think of the brand?
