Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection

Press Sample
Happy Hump Day Polished Babes! Today I have another review of the mainstream brand, Barielle. The Brilliant Colors Collection was released last summer and it consists of five brightly colored shades. What I really love about this collection is the play on the Brilliant aspect of the name. Each color's name is thoughtfully crafted with some sort of reference to education. Let's hop right in...


The first shade I have is called Magna Cum Laude Turquoise. This is a super bright blueish turqouise creme polish with a great formula. I used two easy coats and topcoat. I really love this shade and it is perfect for me, as I earned the Magna Cum Laude honors distinction as an undergrad. No, I will not tell you how long ago that was! Tsk tsk...


Smarty Pants Pink is a bright bubblegum pink creme. The formula for this shade was a little tricky to apply at first. However, it smoothed out well after the second coat. I must admit, I played around with my camera settings and consulted my blogging buddy about photographing this shade, but I still couldn't quite capture it as vividly as it appears in real life. Sowwy... I really did try, but this one was so difficult to accurately capture and way beyond my amateur skill set. It's really pretty though!


Head of the Class Green is a bright greenish/tealish/tourquoise-ish (yes...I made that up!) creme. OMG...the formula on this polish was PERFECT!! It was so easy to apply, it seemed as though it applied itself. It was practically opaque in one coat, but I always use two. But...yes...there's a but. It stained my nails. Sigh... The staining wasn't super horrible, but definitely annoying. <insert sad face> They actually came off really easy after washing my hands and exfoliating. I would certainly double up on basecoat the next time I use this one.


The next polish is called Straight A Coral, which is a reddish coral creme. This one had a great formula and application was super easy. I used two coats, but again, this one nearly opaque in one. I absolutely LOVE how bright and happy this polish is! Who wouldn't be happy with Straight A's? I know I am! Shameless horn tooting ahead>>> I have made Straight A's EVERY semester for both of my masters degrees. This is something I am extremely proud of and hoping this last semester doesn't spoil it!


The last polish is my FAVORITE!! High Marks Purple is an absolutely stunning red toned purple creme. The formula is to die for! This polish shines to no end, even without topcoat. This is one of those purple shades that every purple lover needs in their collection. I adore this color and she will definitely be on these nails often!


Wow...I love this Brilliant Colors Collection from Barielle. The formulas were overwhelmingly great and the pigmentation of these polishes is outstanding. I don't know how they do it, but they are definitely holding up to the reputation I have heard from so many others. I truly feel this brand is underrated and anyone who gives them a try will be pleasantly surprised and addicted! Most importantly, their prices are great, they have specials frequently, and do a lot to actively engage their customers into the brand. These polishes can be purchased as a set or individually.

Have a great day!
