Barielle Jetsetter Collection Swatches, Part 2!

*Sent for review*

Today I'm continuing my review of the Barielle Jetsetter collection from fall 2014. To make me fall even deeper in love with this collection, Barielle added this gorgeous deep navy blue with slight shimmer. Barielle Midnight in Paris is a jewel-like dark dark blue polish that has the slightest bit of shimmer. The shimmer is barely visible, but I think it gives the polish it's beautiful glowing look. I love navy polish, so it's not really surprising, but I LOVE this!

This is two super easy coats of Midnight in Paris. This whole collection is just winning, formula-wise. Great consistency and full opacity in two coats.

Barielle Kiss Me Kate is a very pale beige creme with a hint of whitened pink. This is actually very close to my skin tone and I kind of like the effect ! I am typically not a nude polish lover, but I have a strange hankering to wear this as a full mani.

This smooth, completely opaque, streak-free masterpiece is only two coats! Kiss Me Kate has a little thicker consistency, but it actually makes it easier to apply I think. It's nearly opaque in just one coat, but I did the second to even it out to perfect smoothness. If you're looking for a really pale creamy beige with a great formula, definitely check out Kiss Me Kate.

Barielle Irish Eyes is a cool mossy green creme with a little hint of blue in the base. There is some kind of moss that has a little blue in it and this really reminds me of that. In the bottles, I thought Gondola Ride and this were strangely similar for being in the same collection, but on the nails, they are not at all alike. Gondola Ride is much much lighter and has that dusty, army feel. This is cooler, darker and more clean-feeling, not as dusty.

I hate to be inconsistent and not have a macro shot of this, but it was about to snow when I took these pictures and the macro shots were just not sharp, thanks to the overcast sky. Plus, I actually had to re-do this whole swatch because I somehow painted black cat fur into three of the four nails! Thanks a lot Binx! But the formula of this was good, the same two coats for full coverage.

The Barielle Jetsetter collection pretty much feels like it was designed with me in mind- a glowing navy blue, two greens, a periwinkle, a copper, and a nude that almost exactly matches my skin! I really like the whole collection and love these colors altogether, but if I had to pick favorites, I'd go with Rain in Spain and Midnight in Paris, with Gondola Ride close behind. The Barielle Jetsetter collection is available now on Barielle.com.
