Hello and good morning!
Currently writing this in my dorm room in America when I should be sleeping but instead I’ve stunk my room out with nail polish so I’m wide awake!
On one of my recent shopping trips to different malls around North Carolina and Georgia I’ve picked up quite a few beauties (all for the blog obviously…) the first that you are seeing is this amazing set of ‘Bridal’ nail polishes from Barielle.
Firstly I’d like to point out that no, I am in no way anywhere near getting married but the colours were so pretty I couldn’t resist, who doesn’t love a box of nude nail colours!
As you can see from the box there are 5 different colours, a solid white, shimmer white, coral nude, pink nude and general flesh coloured nude.
I did buy these from TJ Maxx (who on earth knew they had the same store but with one letter difference? Anyone know why this is? I’m intrigued!) but anyhow for half the price at $9.99 i couldn’t resist picking them up.
They were a little dirty in the box and i had to clean them when I opened them up but aside from the the bottles were all sealed and in tact.
The colours look beautiful lined up, I’m tempted to set them out somewhere in my room as they look so good!
As I couldn’t resist testing them out I quickly painted each nail with a base coat, and 2 coats of each colour, you should be able to tell which is which as they are in the same order as shown above:
(Please excuse the state of my nails…they’re doing pretty good all things considering but 6 weeks of digging in the mud results in all manner of nail/hand problems and I can’t apply moisturiser fast enough!)
I love the three nude colours as they go perfectly with my skin tone which is rare as my skin is so pale! The shimmer white I know won’t use as much but it is still a pretty colour and the solid white will be perfect for nail art/french manicures.
In fact I actually love all of them which is pretty cool considering I bought them on a whim with the ‘nobody else can have this bargain’ kind of attitude!
I have painted my nails with the coral coloured nude (middle finger) to see how they fare over time as I’m not sure they’re very thick so could chip easily.
We shall see!
Have you heard of Barielle before? Do you love going into TJ/TK Maxx and picking up some bargains??
I absolutely love it and bought quite a few things….I have bought lots from departments stores and Sephora too.
Would you like to see a post on what I’ve bought during my 7 weeks in America??
Let me know!
