Barielle New York Style (Fall/Winter 2012)


This year Barielle released some new shades for their Fall/Winter 2012 collection, five of them are in the New York Style set - which can be purchased for $25.00 on their website (about $5 per bottle) - or individually at $8 per bottle. Other than their website, I have seen them pop up in Ross stores, but I'm not sure where you can buy them in person. This collection seemed a little odd to me at first, and then I tried them all on - ohwee they really got me in the festive mood this season! All the polishes are creamy, pigmented and just need two coats for a full opaque finish (2 coats used for the following photos).


Big Apple Red | creamy deep red | amazing formula, I remember thinking to myself it applied like a bright red lipstick, perfectly pigmented and super sexy - my favorite of the set




Central Park | creamy frosted green | great formula, surprisingly it's more wearable than you'd think from looking at the bottle. It's got Christmas written all over it for me :)



Soho At Night | creamy grape purple | dreamy, this is my second favorite of the set! I love purples, especially deeper tones




Fifth Ave Boutique | creamy coral with orange tone | oh, this is a bright one, I almost thought it was odd to have in a Fall/Winter collection, but I automatically envisioned lacing this with Star Child (a silvery-glitzy-glitter polish) for a fun Holiday party mani!




Greenwich Village At Dawn | creamy dusty pink | great formula, I only wish the pretty blue shimmer was more visible on the nails, you need a really sunny day to see it
