Barielle All Lacquered Up Collection: Part I
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.
Get Mauve-ing, a muted pink mauve creme that's a great color to sport around the office.
U-Concrete-Me, my love affair continues with this concrete gray creme.
Putt-E-On Me, a unique combination of muddy gray and taupe.
Falling Star is really cool, a marine blue with copper particles, very different and unique.
Out-Grey-Geous, a silver metallic with gold shimmer. I particularly love the gold shimmer in this one.
Slate of Affairs, a denim blue with flashes of blue shimmer.

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!
