Barielle Nude and Naughty Fall 2013 Collection Swatches

Press Sample
Today I'm excited to show you guys this new collection from Barielle. It's the Nude and Naughty collection. These polishes retail for $8.00/bottle or $25.00 for the entire box collection shown below.

I usually do not wear nude nail polishes, they never interested me in the past. Today, Barielle has converted me for good!! At first glance I just assumed this was just another boring set of nudes. WOW, was I wrong.  Never judge a polish that way, I should know better. As I swatched these, I was more and more impressed as I went along. I'm totally in love with this collection now!

This is a very very pale nude color. I consider myself super pale and it was even lighter than my skin tone. What I love about this shade is it made me look like I have a tan! This one is coming away with me on my birthday weekend getaway next week at or Lake Condo.

This is 3 coats. The formula was a tad bit thick for me. It reminded me of a 'white' polish formula (that tend to be thicker), but it did level out in coat 3

This is slightly darker than Very Bare, and is also a super beautiful nude. This color complimented my natural skin tone. I love this color and it made my hands look beautiful.

This is 3 coats and the formula on this was the same as Very Bare, slightly thicker, but levels well on the 3rd coat. If I had to wear just nudes for work, this would become a staple for me.

I'm loving this next color. My husband may not like the name (lol), but I like it!!!This is not your ordinary nude. It has a beautiful subtle shimmer as well.

It has a yummy carmel color for the Fall. The formula on this one was excellent. It was a flawless application and covered in 2 coats.

Look at that gorgeous subtle shimmer (above).

This polish is STUNNING!!! If you can only purchase one of the set, this should be it. It's jaw dropping!

Can you see the gold shimmer hidden in this. WOW!!! This is 2 coats and the formula is perfect and pretty much applies itself!

 This polish is fabulous so make sure you don't pass this one up. The gold flash is gorgeous and easily seen on the nail in all lighting conditions. Again, if I was forced to wear nudes for work (where many of us are), I would not be wthout this.

This one is my favorite of the collection. The color on this is so complex. It's a wonderful mix between brown and olive green. I see olive green in it!!! I know yo can see it too!

This formula was also flawless, and this is 3 coats. It's gets a deep brown in darker lighting (below)..

This is the PERFECT Fall color and I will have a hard time taking this one off.  Now in brighter light look how it turns more Olive (below)...

Overall this collection is a MUST for Nude lovers. I don't have anything negative to say about this set, and this is from a person that dislikes nudes  That says a lot right there. 

You can purchase these on the BARIELLE WEBSITE as of September, 1 2013

Fanchormtic Nail Swatches

Press Sample (Fanchromatic Nails)
Purchased by Me (Models Own and Sation)

Today I have three awesome polishes from Fanchromatic Nails.

This is two coats of Raptor Girl on it's on, no base color needed for this one. To me, this reminds me of a fish tank lol. I loved this one and the formula was wonderful.  It brushed on beautifully and I had no issues with it at all. .


The next color is a really pretty Pink/Lavender polish with a Lavender and Gold shimmer. Gorgeou!!.
 You can see the micro glitter Gold shimmer really well in this picture. I did have to layer this over a base coat and I used Sation Lilac That, which was a perfect match for this.
This is a medium shade of Grey with Silver, Light Blue, and Dark Blue Glitters.  I love the mix of glitters in this. It's very subtle and very pretty.
I did have to layer this over a Grey base of Models Own Grey Day. This was a los a perfect match for this polish.
Over all I had no issues with any of the formulas. I didn't have to use thinner on anything and they played very nicely with the base colors.
If you would like to Purchase for Fanchromtics you can visit their Etsy Shop.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you are all having a Great Weekend!

Zoya Satin Swatches - Fall 2013

Press Sample
Tonight I have swatches of the New Zoya Satin Collection for Fall 2013. I LOVE LOVE these, and I think you will as well.

The best part of this collection is that it includes a Gorgeous Top Coat (Maria Louisa) that works with all of the colors. A+ to Zoya for going with a Glitter Top Coat in this collection.

Keep reading on, and you will see the Glitter To Coat on all of the colors...


This is my favorite of the entire collection. I think it's PERFECT for Fall. The perfect Black. It has a gorgeous silver sheen to it, and I adore it. I am all about dark colors when it comes Fall.

I took this at different angles and lighting so you can see the lovely silver in it. 

I am in love with this color. Thank you to Zoya for creating such a stunning black!

Then to make it fun, I added the Gold Glitter Top Coat that is included in this set for some extra bling! Claudine with MARIA LUISA layered on top.


This was probably the toughest to get an acurate color on. It's a gorgeous Teal/green. Sometimes it leans more Green and other Times more Teal. In the swatch below I had really bright lighting and it looks mostly Teal.

 In deeper/darker lighter it almost looks Emerald Green (below).

 Below it has a nice mix of Green and Teal. It's very VERY unique and I do not have anything else like it in my collection.

 With MARIA LOUISA Top Coat (below). PRETTY PRETTY!!!


This is a beautiful unique color as well. It's a perfect mix of Blue and Purple. Need I say anything more?....WOW!!! I'm pretty right on accurate with the color here, and you can see the lovely Purple Flashes.

If you can only pick a few polishes from this collection, make NEVE one of them.

This is a STUNNING polish!!!! I gasped when I put it on lol!

With the MARIA LOUISA Glitter Top Coat. This combination with the top coat was my favorite!


This one was very difficult to capture. It really leans more Cooper Penny than Orange like it's showing here.

This is definitely cooper penny look on this one with slight orange.

It's very very unique and very very pretty.

I did not swatch the Glitter Top Coat on this becasue I felt it wouldn't show enough. 


This is a really stunning Fuschia Pink...But it also has flashes of purple. I have to say Zoya has really made a bunch of complex colors for this set.

It's loud and bright,and it's so me. I'm very loud and bright lol.

Is this not stunning or WHAT!!!

You can really see the purple flash in the above picture.

With the MARIA LOUISA Glitter Top Coat.

This is really beautiful with the flaky gold Top Coat.

Even though this was probably the hardest set to photograph for me, I truly love them. Zoya has really stepped up their game with these very complex Fall colors.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy!
