Barielle, Blue Capri. (Psst! Giveaway Inside!)

Barielle, Blue Capri. 2 coats.

Barielle, Blue Capri

Blue Capri is from Barielle's 2013 Summer Collection called Summer Brights. This collection consists of polishes that have been previously released except for this one. I've already shown you Pink Flip-Flops and Lemondrops on my Facebook page, but here they are again:

The formula on Pink Flip-Flops is a very opaque cream. It is a little harder to apply like Berry Go Round. I had to be careful in my application to avoid drag marks and streaks. The consistency is also like Berry Go Round in that it is easy to get a nice clean line at the cuticle without any pooling. Usually pale pinks like these require more than 2 coats; for example Pink Quartz is a jelly/cream (Crelly) formula and while it is pretty opaque, it does require 3 coats.  (7/20/12)
Barielle, Lemondrops. 3 coats. Wow! I just think of 'Shock me,
Shock me, Shock me.' from Empire Records... LOL. This is a typical yellow;
thick, streaky formula; but I am loving this color, it's a perfect yellow. (8/15/11)
 I've always wanted Sweet Addiction; a very pretty teal cream and I look forward to wearing it soon. Then, we have Cosmic Kiss which is a bright hot pink; this will make for a great pedicure.

Back to Blue Capri; A vibrant cobalt blue with a touch of purple. In my photo I lost the purple tone so it looks like a brighter cobalt blue than it really is. It's a soothing shade of blue perfect for the summer. In comparison to all my other blues it's actually unique. It's lighter and more periwinkle than Essie's Mezmerized and It's a dark version of China Glaze's Secret Peri-wink-le. Formula was a little thin and watery so you will need to use careful application to avoid cuticle pooling. Also, be sure to allow each coat to dry thoroughly; I rushed it a little and ended up with some dragging. It's perfectly opaque in 2 coats; it's almost a 1 coater. Dry time was average. I added a coat of Seche Vite for a glossy look.

Barielle sent me this collection for review but since I've already got Pink Flip Flops and Lemondrops I thought someone out there might like to add them to their collection. Fill out the following Rafflecopter Widget and you will be entered to win them.
