Barielle Carnival Fiesta Collection Swatches and Review

Good morning everyone!  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  I have another fun holiday offering to share with you today!  This is the Barielle Carnival Fiesta Collection 5-pack, Barielle's newest release!  These shades are bold and fun, and I like every single one of them =) 


First up is a shimmery olive green metallic shade called Barielle Holiday Madness.  It is frosty, but not in a bad way.  When applied properly, brushstrokes are not too much of an issue.  Honestly, when I saw the bottles in this collection, I thought oh great...frosty polishes that I'm not going to like!  But once I had them on my nails, I really like them.  They are "frosty in a good way"  =)  This is two coats with NYC.


Another shimmery metallic polish, Barielle Lindsay's Dancin' is a shimmery holiday red.  The formula is similar to Holiday Madness, and again this is two coats with NYC top coat.  Honestly, I've seen a bunch of reds like this in holiday collections, which I guess is expected, but I'm not really a red girl, so I'm sort of over it!  But regardless, this is really pretty.


Barielle Rio's Rockin' Bands is a gorgeous light purple shimmery metallic polish.  It's not quite a jewel toned as some of the purples we saw in the fall, and it is somehow bold and quite soft at the same time. I really like this.  Again, frosty but in a good way =)  Two coats with NYC.


The last two polishes in the collection are a bit different from the shimmery frosts we've seen so far!  Barielle Jillian's Jammin' is a teal blue glass fleck polish with a purple duochrome in some lights.  In the bottle, the duochrome is quite strong.  In this photo, I have a lot of VNL, despite using three coats of polish, so it is sort of sheer (though I will say the VNL was not so noticeable in real life in regular lighting).


Finally, we have Barielle Wanna Samba?, a purple to steel blue duochrome.  This is two coats with NYC.  The shimmer throughout the polish really glows teal in some lights!  Really unique and pretty, and with a great formula!


Overall, I really enjoy this collection.  The colors are fun and unique (aside from the go-to holiday red shimmer) and honestly could really work for any time of year!  The formula on Barielle polishes is great, and you can't beat the price point of their 5-packs!  Barielle polishes are available on their website [HERE] for $8 each (plus, they're buy one get one 50% off!), OR in 5-pack sets which cost $25 each.  So obviously, the 5-packs are the way to go!  And they offer free shipping on orders over $50.  You can also check out Barielle on Facebook [here] for more info and updates!
