Shades by Barielle Sugar Rush Collection

Barielle Summer Colors

Get your sugar fix on this summer with Shades by Barielle.  The Sugar Rush collection introduces six new vibrant shades sure to please your sweet tooth cravings.

Talkin' about sweet nail candy!  A selection of scrumptious shades that look so good, you'd wish they were edible.

After seeing the first installment of Summer collections from China Glaze, Barielle had some high expections to live up to.  And, I'm happy to report they totally nailed it.

Everything about summer rocks.  Bright, bold pops of color, color and more color!  Most of the shades applied perfectly in two coats with the exception of Lemondrops and Cotton Candy.

Must have's: (wow, this is hard because I loved them all) Sweet Addiction, Lemondrops (if your a yellow lover), Swizzle Stick, Decadance.

What I loved about this collection - No Reds!

Check out all the swatches below.  

Barielle lemondrops nail polish

Barielle Yellow nial polish

Lemondrops is a bright yellow creme that's perfect for tootsies in the summertime.  A close comparison is Rescue Beauty Lounge's, Yellow Fever minus the shimmer.

Barielle Decadance nail polish

Decadance is a shimmery turquoise blue that's gorgeous.

Barielle Sweet Addcition nail polish

Barielle Sugar Rush Summer collection

Stop the press - who's that?!  Sweet Addicition totally rocks my world you guys.  Described as a unique slice of minty green goodness.   This shade is spectacular and looks even better on.  Can't wait to sport Sweet Addiction on my toes with a tan.  Totally Hot!

Check out the close comparison below. 

Mint green nail polish comparisons 

The comparison may look like close to a dupe, but I assure you both are quite different and equally beautiful.

Barielle grape escape nail polish

Barielle sugar rush summer collection

 Grape Escape is a vibrant Barney purple creme.  Can't say no to purple!

Barielle cotton candy nail polish

Cotton Candy is just as you would imagine.  A semi sheer pink with hot pink shimmer. 

Barielle Swizzle Stix nail polish

Swizzle Stick is a soft baby blue creme that's not as vibrant as pictured above.  For some reason, I just couldn't capture the actual color representation.

The Sugar Rush collection is now available online at Barielle and/or CVS which retails for $7.99.  Barielle usually runs online specials for buy 2 nail polishes, get one free ($16 for 3).

Note: I have yet to see any Barielle's at my local CVS's and believe me I've been to several.        

Here's a little slideshow of my picture swatches from Barielle's Sugar Rush collection.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
