Barielle Brilliant Colors Swatches and Review...

Barielle has released their second collection for the summer called Brilliant Colors. The collection features five beautiful bright cream shades. Although the names of the lacquers in this collection drudge up thoughts of going back to school, the colors are perfect for the sunny days of summer...


Smarty Pants Pink
A bubble gum pink cream. It is a bit brighter and deeper than the swatches show, but my camera is convinced such a color does not exist and refuses to photograph it properly. The formula is thick and creamy, opaque in two coats...

Color Name/Number:  Smarty Pants Pink, 5277
Number of coats: 2
Top Coat: No

Magna Cum Laude Turquoise
A bright blue aqua cream. This also has a great creamy formula that provides full coverage in two coats. Unfortunately this does stain the nails blue, so make sure to use a good base coat underneath, it helps a lot. If you do get staining, try the whitening toothpaste trick. Swatches are with no top coat...

Straight A Coral 
A coral red cream. This does have more red/coral to it, not quite as orange as the photos. The formula on this is very nice and smooth. It is a bit more sheer than the rest of the creams in this collection and needed three coats for full coverage. Swatches are with no top coat...

Head of the Class Green
A beautiful sea foam green cream. It is very pigmented and can provide full coverage with just one coat although I did use two coats purely out of habit. Formula is easy to work with, very creamy and smooth. This also unfortunately stains the nails so a base coat is a must to protect the nails. At times it seems that the acetone makes it worse as it spreads the polish all over during removal. The whitening toothpaste method of stain removal worked really well for me...
