Barielle All Lacquered Up Collection: Part I

Fall 09 Barielle Shades All Lacquered Up

Shades by Barielle introduces the All Lacquered up collection for Fall. A collaboration between our favorite nail blogger Michelle Mismas, founder of All Lacquered Up, Celebrity Manicurist and creative director for Barielle's Shades, Elle.

Barielle brings us twelve, trend making shades inspired by the latest and greatest fashions we've previously seen on the runway.

Overall, I'm thrilled about this collection and applaud Michelle and Elle's efforts for this awesome spread. Each shade was tastefully created and very wearable for most anyone.

In part one, I'm bringing you the neutral tones, a selection of corporate approved shades with some edge. As always, Barielle shades are cruelty and big 3 free (safe for pregnancies).

Formula and Application: You won't find any sheer formulas here, which I absoultely love. Each shade is thick, opaque and filled with loads of color.

Enough of the chitter chatter, let's move onto the swatches.

All those look great on you Steph but I think U-Concrete-Me is the most flattering. I love how your images picked up on the subtle shimmer in Slate of Affairs. I sooo love that color.

Hi Steph Will you compare Get Mauve-ing to $OPI Call Your Mother or some other purple/pink/mauve colors? Maybe Pure Ice Taupe Drawer? I'm sure you can think of some better ones :) Thanks!

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.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

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.
