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.
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 :)
