My Barielle polishes are finally here! I've received package today morning and managed to do swatches of half of the collection :) 

Just to introduce the collection: "Fend off the season’s chill with six new colours from Barielle’s Style In Argyle Autumn collection. With a rich colour palette to choose from and their signature ‘3-free’ formulation, this collection is inspired by stylish Argyle fashion colours. Formulated to provide nails with safe, healthy and long lasting glossy colour coverage."

It consists of six autumn shades, mostly browns. Bottles are 13.3 ml and have totally new design which will stay for the next collections. Style in Argyle is now available online at the Barielle website. One polish costs £8 but Barielle extended their offer "buy one get one free" on this fall collection so one polish will actually cost you £4.

Wool You Marry Me? - warm reddish chocolate brown. It is a creme shade without shimmer. The application was smooth and flaweless and without streaks. I used two coats which were sufficient for a full coverage. Polish dried quickly and I really like the formula, really nice one.

Cashmere or Loose Me - Cool light brown with a copper shimmer. You can see the copper shimmer in the bottle but not really on the nail. But in my opinion it doesn't matter, colour came up nicely. Application was really nice again and two coats were fullly opaque. It dried quite quickly...just great polish, see yourself!
Unraveled Rust -  Actually it has nothing to do with rust :) The colour is cool dark chocolate creme. It was almost one coater but I used two to make sure everything looks perfect ;) I hope the rest of the polishes from the collection will keep up the great formula - smooth and quick drying.

To be continued....
*Products were send to me by PR company for a review.

In the previous post I told you about my visit at Illamasqua's new store in London and the new Art of Darkness collection. So today I've got for you swatches of nail polish in Viridian and Liquid Metal in Resolute I brought from this event.

Viridian - shimmery deep emerald green. It is a really beautiful shade, fully opaque in two coats and non-streaky. I had a little problem with application due to quite fast drying but it wasn't bad as with OPI suede polishes. The brush is slim but nice to work with. Right now I have polish the third day and there is no chipping at all. Bottle is usual 15 ml and costs £13.

Resolute - metallic ruby red cream. It is a multi-purpose and highly pigmented product. it can be used on eyes, cheeks, body or lips. I saw Alex Box use it as a lipstick on one of the models at the event so I tried how it will look on me. Not as good :-/  But back to the product - it is nice and creamy and not cupcakey. It can be use as  a base for eyeshadow and it is suitable for layering. I plan to buy the palette of four other liquid metals (gold, silver, bronze, pewter) because this one is really nice. Retail price is £17 per 8 ml and I think there is no chance I would use up the whole product as you need only a little.
