Barielle's Sophisticated Lady Fall 2013 Collection.

5 pack.
Here's the 2nd release Barielle has for Fall this year; Sophisticated Lady. If you like sexy & vampy then this collection is right up your alley.

Nail Stick Swatches. Indoors, 2 coats. No Top Coat.
The milk chocolate shade, In Good Taste, is also a part of the Nude & Naughty Collection I showed you a few days ago. Click HERE to see it. My favorite out of the bunch is London High Tea, a raspberry pink with golden shimmer. However, red lovers will want Dinner at 8 because the formula is a juicy crelly with excellent opacity at 2 coats. Those who love a dark, vampy nail will love the one-coat formula of Tres Chic, a blackened blurple creme.

Nail Stick Swatches. Outdoors, 2 coats. No Top Coat.
You can't see the golden shimmer in London High Tea in this nail stick swatch because the weather was a bit overcast, but you can see it in the photo below.

Barielle's Tres Chic on Index & Middle. London High Tea on Ring & Pinkie.
Tres Chic is a blackened blurple (a cross between a blue and purple) creme. It's an easy one coater. Formula was just a little thick but it helps with application. On my nails I did 2 coats just to see if it would change the color any but it didn't.

London High Tea is a pretty raspberry pink with golden shimmer. It's a really nice shade of pink that would flatter just about any body's skin tone. The formula was nice and easy to work with. I did use 3 coats on my nails because I could still see just a touch of visible nail line with 2 coats.

Barielle's Edgy on Index & Middle. Dinner At 8 on Ring & Pinkie.
Edgy is a deep eggplant purple creme. The formula was thick and easy to apply but for some reason it wasn't as opaque as it's sister, Tres Chic. The first coat was a bit streaky so the 2nd was necessary to reach opacity. Again, if you love a dark vampy nail then you will love this along with Tres Chic.

Dinner At 8 is a squishy looking crelly. The formula was a little on the thin side but still easy to apply. I didn't have any issues with pooling at the cuticle. 2 coats got it perfectly opaque to the naked eye, but the photo shows a little visible nail line. In the sun it lights up but in low lighting it becomes a deep, sexy red.

In Good Taste is a deep milk chocolate brown creme. I featured it in my Nude & Naughty post HERE. Its a really nice brown that would be a great addition to any polish collection.

All swatches done on my nails have a coat of Seche Vite and I didn't experience any staining after removal.

I think this fall Barielle's got something for everyone. Personally, I lean towards the Nude & Naughty Collection but this one has the color that I'm sure some missed in that collection. These are available now at

* I was sent this collection by Barielle for review.
