Barielle Elle's Spell from Holiday Hustle

Barielle Elle's Spell Nail Polish

Barielle Holisay Hustle: Elle's Spell

One of the highlights from Barielle's Holiday Hustle collection, Elle's Spell ($8.00). It's described as a red jelly with multi-colored foil flakes. First off, a big high-five to Barielle for giving us a flakies! How exciting is that? Secondly, let's hope we see more colors in the near future.

Elle's Spell applies much lighter than the bottle color appears - which may be the only downfall. But don't worry, it can be layered over a dark red to obtain that same look. Three coats give you good coverage while four is supreme.

Check out an example layered over black.

Can you take a guess who this looks like? If you've guessed little miss Hidden Treasure, bingo! Of course both colors are completely different (red vs. clear), but throw some black into the equation and its game on! Nearly the same effect.

Elle's Spell is now available at Ulta Stores ($6.00) and ($8.00/B2G1). Along with the regular buy two, get one free, is offering 10-30% off orders ranging from $25 and up.

Did anyone pick up Elle's Spell or any others from the collection? Will you be checking out this shade? Are you loving this?

I used to skim over the flakies-type polishes on the blog, but after seeing a few more, I think I may have to make the trip out to Ulta and see if they have this one. I LOVE the look over black.

Gorgeous! I love flakies, they're mesmerizing.

I just purchased this last weekend and am going to wear it to a get together Friday evening! I fell in love with this in the bottle! Thanks for the review!

OMGoodness!!! *GASP* A beautiful red flakie - AND better quality than the Sinful Flakies but more reasonably priced than the Nfu-Ohs (and the now HTF SH Hidden Treasure)! WOOOOOOT!

I haven't subscribed to Essie's mailing lists - my bad - so guess I'll be taking care of that shortly! ;)

Thanks again for your ALWAYS awesome pics and reviews, Super excited about this one, 'specially since I haven't been much for Essie til this point besides an odd color here or there (most of their collections are a sort of a "snort" to my tastes) but this one looks like a horse of a completely different color altogether! YAYYYYYY! :-D

Thanks so much for your ALWAYS gorgeous swatches and comprehensive reviews!!! Rock on, sister - this is one girl who will continue to follow you faithfully!

Whoops, almost forgot - what's this you say about a Buy 2 Get 1 Free + 20% (or more) off (depending on order total) right now when purchasing directly from! :-O I need to check the details of the offer you posted more cafefully I think before I get TOO excited - LOL!!! XOXOX ~Ruthieq

I just stumbbled upon your blog looking for a picture of Sally Hansen's Comander in Chic to show a friend what the color looks like. I found this picture (the Elle's Spell over Black) and FELL IN LOVE!!!!! Needless to say I went directly to the Barielle website and bought the Elle's Spell, Monigue Jet and Date Night, can't pass up a buy 2 get one free sale!!!!!!

I was wondering are these your nails? are they natural? I LOVE them! They look GREAT! I haven't looked much into the website yet, but I'm going now to look around more. :)

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 missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

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.
