Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection Swatches and Review

Press Sample

I have a fun Summer Collection to show you tonight from Barielle!  The Brilliant Colors Collection consists of 5 shades for Summer that are sure to impress!


Doesn’t that collage look great?  Read on for each color!

Magna Cum Laude Turquoise:


Magna Cum Laude Turquoise is my favorite of the group!  It’s a beautiful, vibrant turquoise!  I used 2 coats for this photo, but I would recommend doubling up on base coat applications for this beauty.  I used 1 coat and came out with slightly tinged Smurf Nails upon removal!



Look at how vibrant that is!  LOVE!

Head of the Class Green:


My second favorite of the group – which is odd because shades of green usually don’t make my top picks!  Head of the Class Green is a vivid (much more so than a picture could capture!) green with a hint of blue.  I used 2 coats for this picture, and again – double up on the base coat to be safe!



Again.. just love this!

Straight A Coral:


Straight A Coral is another stunner!  This is a coral that strongly leans to red.  I used 2 coats for this photo and a top coat!  Perfection!



Smarty Pants Pink:


Smarty Pants Pink – simply put – this is the perfect bubble gum pink!  2 coats and a glossy top coat completed this manicure!



High Marks Purple:


High Marks Purple is a vibrant berry shade.  It’s described by Barielle as a neon purple, but I wouldn’t classify it was a neon.  It is vibrant and pretty – but not bright enough to be a neon.  I used 2 coats for this photo and a top coat!



All 5 of these colors had amazing coverage!  All of them were at least 80% opaque in one coat!  All went on smooth and effortlessly.  High Marks Purple seemed a little thick at first, but it went on just fine.

Barielle Brilliant Colors is available on the Barielle Website  and retails for $8.00 each

As always Barielle polishes are 3 – Free and their formula is amazing!

It’s a nice change for a summer collection! Instead of neon they went with bold! Love!

Pretty pretty! I’ve been playing with these shades a ton lately! Barielle did a great job this summer, and I love that these are not only bright, but bold!!

They really did a great job with it! I was shocked by the opacity! Have you tried stamping with them yet?
