Barielle "Brilliant Colors" Collection 2013, swatches and review

Today I have some great bright cremes from Barielle that were released earlier this summer.

"Brilliant Color" Collection is a collection of bright cremes with very scholarly names.

Barielle "Smarty Pants Pink"
2 coats, no top coat

A nice bright pink, almost neon but not quite.  Applied very well, no issues. 

Barielle "Magna Cum Laude Turquoise"
2 coats, no top coat

A great bright turquoise creme. Applied well in 2 coats, and I had no staining with this color, which was a welcome surprise. 

Barielle "Straight A Coral"
2 coats, no to coat

A bright coral red. This is an easy color to wear since it leans red and has less orange in it than most corals.

Barielle "High Marks Purple"
2 coats, no top coat

This is an awesome bright purple creme.  

Barielle "Head Of The Class Green"
2 coats, no top coat

This is a bright and pretty awesome green.  This would be a fun pedicure color!

The Barielle descriptions for these colors are "neons", but I should call them "back to school brights", LOL! True, none of the colors are unique, but my favorites are "High Marks Purple" and "Head Of The Class Green". :)

They all applied very well, no issues. I am very happy with the Barielle formula, it is smooth and easy and is almost opaque in 2 coats. A definite joy to work with.
