Barielle Carnival Fiesta

I had a super busy weekend, and I am going to highlight the project I started and finished tomorrow... you don't want to miss it!!

On this lovely Monday morning I have the Barielle Carnival Fiesta collection to share with you. These are all so, so pretty; and proved difficult to capture their full beauty in pictures.

First up, Wanna Samba? is a metallic grey with a hint of blue tint and a purple shimmer in a duo-chrome fashion (meaning, its only at certain angles).

You can really see the dynamic of the shimmer in the bottle. The formula was easy to work with, and this is surprisingly streak-less for this type of shimmer. This is really breathtaking in person.

Next up is Rio's Rockin Band. This is a metallic magenta.

So, I didn't notice the ring finger imperfection until it was too late, but just ignore it lol. This is two coats of Rio's Rockin Band. The formula was easy to use. This one the streaks are a bit more obvious, but still not distracting.

Next is Lindsay's Dancin. I try very hard to ignore the incorrect apostrophe use lol. This is a metallic red shimmer.

I am not typically a fan of red nail polish. While I have nothing against the color in general, for some reason I do not gravitate towards it. This one has me in love. It's bright with almost a bit of orange leaning in the color spectrum. The shimmer knocks your socks off and the two coats applied evenly with no streaks.

Now we have Holiday Madness. This is a metallic olive green with a gold shimmer shining through...

This is two coats and the formula was again easy to work with. There is a bit of streaking, but like most of the others in this collection it is minute. I feel like if you own OPI Just Spotted a Lizard or any of the green/gold duo-chromes you do not need to own this one as well. They are all the same basic idea.

And last, but certainly not least, my favorite of the collection: Jillian's Jammin (again, trying my best to ignore the incorrect apostrophe use haha). This is a metallic deep turquoise with a pink shimmer at certain angles.

You can really see the pink shimmer in the bottle, I just couldn't seem to capture it on my nails... but it's there. This is two coats, with a lovely formula. After the first coat I was a bit worried, but the second coat built up beautifully. This is a must have for any blue lover.

Overall, I loved this collection. All of the metallics are very well done. I feel like most of the colors are unique; and that makes this collection worth purchasing.

You can follow Barielle on Facebook here. You can buy these online here for $8.00 each. Or the entire collection here for only $25.00 (if you do the math, that's a $15 dollar savings).
