Hi there Polished Babes! Today I have my first review of products from Barielle. The Nude & Naughty Collection consists of five neutral toned shades, ranging from very light to dark colors. It seems that there is a color in here to fit everyone's complexion and tastes.
Very Bare is described as an "opalescent pink." This shade really tightly treads the line between a creamy white and very pale pink crelly. I used three coats, as the first two coats were somewhat uneven when applied. The third coat evened everything out and I really love the outcome! It dried to a surprisingly glossy finish. This shade seems to be universally flattering and could definitely serve as a palette cleanser.
The next polish is called Pillow Talk, which is a "pale peach" crelly. The formula was very sheer, so I used three coats and there were no issues with application. This one seems to be the peach colored sister to Very Bare.
No Not Now is described as a "sheer toffee" color. Hmmm....I don't quite get the sheer aspect of the description; however, it is a lighter toffee color.It has some pinkish undertones and subtle shimmer, which becomes more apparent in different lighting conditions. I used 3 thin coats and there were no issues with the formula or application.
This next shade is my favorite of the collection! I Got a Headache is a "shimmery caramel" colored creme base. This one was very sheer, but applied smoothly in three coats. I really love the earthy tone of this one and the copper shimmer really makes it standout! Again, when dry, it was super glossy without topcoat.
In Good Taste is a "chocolate brown" creme. This polish has a really great formula and went on really easily in two coats. It is a really nice brown, but it seemed to appear slightly lighter than expected by the bottle color. I really love the shade and I was expecting it to be a tad darker, but this is the perfect milk chocolate brown!
So this collection is a really nice range of neutral colors, which I totally love. The polish names...haha...they are really playing off the "Nude & Naughty" collection name well! At first glance, this collection can be overlooked as "just more neutrals," but after wearing these shades, you will truly be surprised by the variety and uniqueness of the polishes.
