Barielle, Me Couture Collection: Swatches and Review.

Hey Gang! Barielle sent me one of their newest collections for Fall to show you. Since I'm not one to do a swatch-a-thon (seriously tough on my nails) I did some nail art. I was inspired by Let Them Have Polish when she did this with a Zoya Collection recently.

Index and Middle: 2 coats of Boho Chic as my base color; dotting done with Vintage Gown.

Ring and Pinky: 2 coats of Moda Bleu as my base color; dotting done with Taupe Notch.

For the dotting I used different sized dotting tools; you can pick up a set here.

After it was completly dry I added one coat of In A Hurry Air Dry Top Coat.

The Me Couture Collection consists of 6 colors; 5 cremes and 1 creme with slight shimmer. These all have a very consistent formula and are easy 2 coaters. 

From Left to Right:

Boho Chic: The bottle shot looks teal but on the nail its a forest green creme.

Moda Bleu: A dark navy blue creme. Brighter than Milani's Enchanted Sapphire, deeper than China Glaze's One Track Mind.

Taupe Notch: A warmer toned grey creme

Vintage Gown: A rich chestnut brown with the lightest hint of shimmer; almost undetectable on the nail but top coat helps bring out the shimmer.

Berry Posh: A deep fuchsia creme.

Soho At Night: This muted plum is a re-promote. As far as I know this is the only re-promote in this collection. Let me know if you have different information. 

My favorites are Boho Chic, Taupe Notch, and Vintage Gown. I wish there was more shimmer visible with Vintage Gown. I love Soho At Night but it's been in Barielle's line up for quite some time. What are your favorites of this collection?
