Shades by Barielle: Wildflower Spring Collection
|Product: Barielle Wildflower Collection, Nail Lacquer .5 oz|
|Buy it: Barielle starting in Feb, ocrf.org.|
Happy Saturday Divas! After all this snow, I know I'm ready for Spring. And Shades by Barielle celebrates with six stylish colors to look forward to.
Last week you saw a sneak peek at the gorgeous, A Bouquet for Ava. Today I'm bringing you the remainder of The Wildflower Collection, starting with the shades that benefit The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund created by, Elle.
Celebrity Manicurist and Barielle's Creative Director Elle says, "It means so much to develop a collection that hits so close to home with women affected by ovarian cancer. Having my best friend pass away from the disease, I feel honored to be part of something that gives back."
Let's jump to the swatches, shall we?
June Bug is a grayed-out blue with subtle shimmer and fuchsia glitter. The combination of pink glitter and blue shimmer is fab!. Two coats for full coverage; dries to a non gritty finish.
Myrza's Meadow is a semi sheer, light lime green with silver holographic glitter. Even though the holographic effect is mild, it's a step in the right direction. I would love to see more holo's from Barielle.
A Bouquet for Ava is a cool, caribbean blue creme with a touch of teal.
100% of proceeds from June Bug, Myrza's Meadow and A Bouquet for Ava will be donated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund when purchased through ocrf.org. How incredibly cool is that? A 100%! If you're interested in these colors, I encourage everyone to call and order. The retail cost is $8.00 and phone number is (212) 268-1002. Free Shipping and it's for a great cause!
Having fun with A Bouquet for Ava and Blossom.
Blossom is an opaque peachy creme. The color is pretty... very spring and summery. Since the formula was a bit on the thick side, I had application issues. Just be sure to apply in thin coats to avoid streaking.
Snap Dragon - is a frosty sea foam green metallic. Love the fresh green... but me and metallics never seem to get along.
Darling Dahlia - is a fuchsia with shimmer. The base is a jelly like berry with extremely subtle shimmer. Application was good with three coats.
Overall, Great Collection! A fun, refreshing mix of Spring colors that benefit a good cause. As always, Barielle's formula is Big 3 Free.
Do you like this collection? What are some of your favorite colors? Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks so much for posting these! I already ordered the 3 from OCRF and I definitely want Blossom too. Snap Dragon is a pretty color but I\'m not sure about metallics either!

My faves are Myra's Meadow, Blossom, & Snap Dragon. How does June Bug compare to their Falling Star? They look like they are "cousins" somehow.

A Bouquet for Ava and June Bug are droolworthy! Too bad there's no way to get Barielle shipped to my country... Oh, well, they might come up on ebay one day. Thanks for the swatches!

I'm such a sucker for the cause. Anything that supports Ovarian Cancer or Breast Cancer or even Heart Month is something I'm all over. I think that I will buy June Bug, Myrza's Meadow, and A Bouquet for Ava on the OCRF website before the month of January is over -- and I thought I was going on a no-buy for the rest of this month!

Surprising! I thought I would like Snap Dragon most and Darling Dahlia least, turns out to be the opposite! Darling Dahlia is now a must on my list and I wouldn't even come near Snap Dragon.

So sad about the finish on Snap Dragon! I love the color, but streaky frost finishes are unbearable. Why oh why do nail companies use it if they can't do it right?
