Before we get started, I know you haven’t heard much from me on the blog or any of my social media platforms in the last seven days. Well the internet is currently down at my place so for now I’m doing a bit of blogging from a coffee shop. Does posting from a local coffee spot that offer free wifi make me a really blogger now? Anyway, today I have a quick, easy, and fun nail art look using Barielle’s Velvets Collection for spring 2014.
The night I did these, I was pressed for time but still wanted some not-so-simple nails. So I took a gander through the top drawer of my Helmer—where I stash my “to review” goodies—and this collection kinda just jumped out at me.
The first time I saw this collection in-person a few shades somewhat reminded me of the Zoya Naturel Collection. Soon after that observation was made, I realized this was a 6-piece set. One piece in addition to Barielle’s usual 5-pack.
I really liked the idea of somehow combining all six shades so I used My Tan Blazer on my thumb, Upton Girl on my index, Cream ‘N Sugar on my middle, My Week Away on my ring, and Sexy Mood on my pinky. After I laid down my base colors I decided to splatter the one remaining color, A Little Exotic, across all of my nails to create a sense of uniformity.
What surprised me the most is that my favorite of the bunch was Cream ‘N Sugar. I usually lean to bright, opaque crèmes, but there was something about the sheer shade I couldn’t help but be attracted to.
Quick side note: These pics were taken after a week of wear. Not too bad right?
All lacquers in the Barielle’s Velvets collection (along with every other Barielle nail shades) are available on Barielle.com for $8 per .45 fl oz bottle.
I’ve got one more Barielle collection for spring 2014 to show you and I think you’ll love it! In the mean, are you as excited as I am that Barielle is doing 6-piece sets now? Let chat in the comments.Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
