Barielle Shades Ulta Exclusives Swatches Part 1 of 3

I was send the entire Barille Shades Ulta Exclusive collection to swatch and
share with you and well that is a lot of swatching so I will do this in 3 parts so as not to overwhelm.
Barielle nail polish is available now at Ulta for $6.00 each
Barielle shades are certainly a brand I respect for their unique shades and abillity to step
outside the standard pink and red box. You will notice that some shades are "reintroduced" from other collections so my guess is that these will be exclusive to Ulta.
(In direct sun)
Belly Dance- a soft nude with silver shimmer
(I shade)
This is 2 coats and very opaque

(In full sun)
Slate of Affairs is a grayed blue with teal shimmer and I adore this color!
(In shade)
Suddenly it appears as a grey creme which makes me love this color even more

(Full sun)
Grape Escape is a bright purple creme
(In shade)
I will try to do a comparison this week with my closest purples but I don't think I own a dupe.


(Full sun)
Decadance...it matches my hair need I say more?!
Teal makes me happy, teal with shimmer is....decadance!

(Shade)
I just love how some of these are so different depending on the light

(full sun)
Misbehaving Mistress a dark chocolate brown with pinkish silver shimmer.
I am not a fan of browns but it I chose 1 brown for me, this would be it!
(shade)
It changes to a chic mocha out of  direct light

(Full sun)
Coco Bar looks like, well coco creme.
(shade)
This is 2 coats and very smooth.

As with all of my experience, so far, with Barielle the formulas are very well pigmented, smooth and apply beautifully. All pictures are 2 coats with no top coat.

Part 2 coming soon!

Following your heart

Sometimes you have to follow what you know in your heart is best for you....
even when it's hard and it hurts and it means ending a friendship!
Sometimes you have to step away from emotions and look sincerely at things and
sometimes that means removing people from your life for your own wellbeing.

I don't think I am an unkind person...at least I try very hard to be kind, tolerant, forgiving, openminded and accepting. I am more than willing to listen to different views, ideals and opinions I encourage it actually.
But I cannot promise not to ever disagree or even at times when passionate about something...even debate it.

I try to be a good friend. I will bendover backward to help anyone and never do I ask or expect anything in return. I try to offer an ear when needed, a shoulder, advice if asked, or the shirt off my back. I am human and I do make mistakes from time to time, but I will admit to them, accept responsibility and apologize.

Sometimes love and friendship is not enough.
Occasionally a relationship is just toxic and you have to walk away.
This is a hard day, a sad day....but I know in my heart it is what is best for me.

Sometimes being a friend just sucks!

Nicole by OPI holiday collection swatches

Nicole by OPI has put out 4 "Holiday" shades for 2010
Bring on the Tinsel is traditional holiday multi glitter in a clear base. Silver is the base glitter with lots of Red, green and a touch of blue and gold. This is 2 coats. I'm sure it could be opaque at 3-4 coats if you prefer it alone and not layered.
Stuck in the Chimney is a pink/red with subtle gold shimmer.
2 coats
Kiss me at Midnight is not as brown as it looks in the picture. It is a brown toned deep wine with pink/red shimmer. 2 coats.
**Correction** I originally called this a black jelly base and was thinking of a different polish.
(Swatched over Kiss me at Midnight)
Spark my Mistletoe is a clear base with tons of red glitter and a dash of silver hex glitter.
2 coats This is a bit too sparse to go alone, in my opinion, it would take 4+ coats to get opaque.


I am in a place of introverted thought at current so I apologize for there being few words in this post.
