Barielle Summer Brights

I love summer. Summer is a time of cookouts, watermelon, sandals, swimming, and sand. Summer polish collections should remind the wearer of the fun of summer. The latest summer collection by Barielle tries to accomplish this through vibrant colors and creme finishes. 

Here are some glamour shots;)
(Please excuse my paper cuts!)

Sweet Addiction is a "creme green." This dusty, light emerald brings the color of the year into the summer. This was nearly opaque in one coat. 

Lemon Drops a "sun yellow creme." This is the color of lemon drops (the candy). It is bright, sunny, and reminds me of lemonade stands. I love that this yellow applied flawlessly in 2 coats!

Pink Flip-Flops is aptly described as a "creamy baby pink." This girly pink reminds me of pink cotton candy and little girls' dresses. This pink is on the warmer side but shows no visible trace of coral or orange.

Cosmic Kiss is called a "creamy deep pink." I think this polish has fuchsia tendencies but this floral quality is what makes it so summery.  

Blue Capri, a"royal creamy blue," is bright with a slight dusty quality. This is a bright, electric periwinkle and was completely opaque in one coat. The added bonus is that there is ZERO staining from this stunner!

The Verdict:
This collection is fun and summery. The application of all above polishes was streak free and smooth. All swatches shown are two flawless coats of polish without a topcoat. While these might not be the MOST unique polishes ever, I do think they have the best formula I have tried for some of these colors. The ones that stood out to me the most were Blue Capri, Sweet Addiction, and Lemon Drops.

This collection can be found at the Barielle website and retails for $25.00.  You can also purchase the polishes individually for $8.00.
