Review on Barielle Polishes

Posted on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 | 1 Comment

Barielle sent me some fantastic polishes to review on my blog

 Left to Right we have: Cosmic Kiss, Star Child, Sky's The Limit, Platinum Ring, Ultra Speed Top coat, Nail Rebuilding Protein Base coat

First we have is Sky's The Limit. I used two coats, you could easily get away with one coat.  This is a foil/shimmer Sapphire blue polish.  This polish doesn't show any brush strokes so that's A++.

I added one coat of Star Child on top of Sky's the Limit.  What I like about Star Child is that you don't have to try to get the silver hexagon glitter out of the bottle, a good amount comes out with the brush.  The silver pieces are all holographic so it has a rainbow flash to it. I think Star Child is a very good name for this polish.

The Next polish we have is Cosmic Kiss. I am not a huge fan of pink and I didn't think I would love it but.. I love love love it!!! it's a pink jelly polish! It took me 3 coats to sort of get opacity..you can still slightly see my nail line. I wish Barielle made more colors in this jelly finish.

 Next we have Platinum Ring. This is a silver foil/ shimmer polish. It is very shiney and glittery, it took three coats to be opaque.  It doesn't show brush strokes so I'm pretty happy with it. Sally Hansen might have a dupe to this polish "Celeb City" I'll have to dig it out and compare. 

Lastly Barielle sent me two nail conditioners. Well.. I don't know if they are called nail conditioners... a top coat and a base coat.

Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender and Nail Rebuilding Protein

My go to top coat is Seche Vite. I really like Seche Vite because it drys really fast and it provides a very shiny top coat...unfortunately it isn't 3 Free.  I used Barielle's Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender for one month and I adore it. It is a great substitute for Seche vite because it dries just as fast and leaves a very shiny top coat. Best of all it doesn't cause the polish to shrink!!!!! A problem I have with Seche Vite is that once it dries up it causes my nail polish to shrink so I would see my nail edge with no polish on it. Barielle's top coat does not do that so yippe!!

I keep changing base coats since I haven't found a base coat that prevents my nails from chipping. I have used Nubar Nu nails, OPI nail envy, Seche Vite Rebuild. So far I have used Barielle's base coat for two weeks and I am quite pleased with it. I used it under my manicure. I use two coats then I applied my colored nail polish on top. I will update in two weeks time on whether it has helped prevent any chipping on my nails.

ps : Barielle also sent me an adorable shoe key chain so I have been using that on my house key that I use when I go running. Shoe = running so I'll always remember the key :)
