Barielle: 4 out of 90!

Today I have 4 colors from Barielles 90 new color shades, which they added to their core line earlier this year. I was sent 8 colors to review, so here are the first 4 colors. :)

I think I choose some good ones to review.

Left to Right: Not That Kind of Girl, Starchild, Island Breeze, Lily of the Valley.

First up...

"Not That Kind of Girl"
 2 coats, no top coat

This neon pink is AWESOME! Most neon's are thin, streaky and require a base color of white polish to seriously pop.  This bad boy, pops right out of the bottle!!! It was nearly opaque in coat, but 2 coats makes it perfect. No streaks, no thin layers, no white polish needed, just hot pink neon perfection in a bottle!

And the true test of a good neon camera is wigging out and can't capture the brightness, LOL :)

2 coats, no top coat

This is a great glitter packed with round and hexagon silver holographic glitter.  Definitely more of a top coat rather than a stand alone color, but it is very pretty and easy to apply. I didn't have to "place the glitter" on the nail like most glitters, I just swiped it on like most polishes, and all I got was well placed glitter, Sweet!

"Island Breeze"
2 coats, no top coat

This is a very pretty aqua blue shimmer,  Nothing terribly unique, but it is a great color for summer, in a great formula. Easy to apply, no issues.

"Lily of the Valley"
2 coats, no top coat

This is a gorgeous Irish green shimmer, so pretty and opaque in 2 coats, although I see 3 coats may be necessary to make it perfectly opaque, as I see visible nail lines on my middle finger :( No matter, it's gorgeous it's green , it's perfect!

Basically my favorites are "Not That Kinda Girl" and "Starchild". Barielle seriously needs to make an entire neon set, because NYKG is amazing!

WOW! They are all good ones - but I am blown away with Not That Kind Of Girl - I am a sucker for hot pink, fuchsia, magenta ranges!
