BARIELLE Keys Collection : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! After an entire week of jet lag, intolerable heat and molasses-slow internet, I think I'm finally in a position to start posting from (incredibly) sunny Calcutta! And my very first post is of a collection that is all about celebrating the sun, the heat and the super bright colors of a tropical summer--yes, I'm talking about the Barielle Keys collection for Summer 2014! Wait til you get a glimpse of these 6 vibrant, intensely pigmented, almost-neon shades that are just perfect for a hot, hot summer anywhere around the world!

Before we get started, let's take a minute to discuss the formula and application of these beauties. All six shades are easily opaque in 2 coats, though I prefer three coats, unless mentioned, to bring out the true vibrancy of each shade. Across the board, the formula of these polishes was fabulous--despite being neons or intensely pigmented, they weren't super streaky and leveled out quite nicely as they dried. All the swatches below show 3 smooth coats by itself, topped with 1 thin coat of G&G's HK Girl for added shine. Now comes the fun part...on to swatches!!!

Barefoot in Bermuda is described as "a creamy hot pink". A gorgeous, bright pink that I adore on my complexion!

Hawaiian Sunset is described as a "a shimmery orange" with an almost crelly-like finish. The gold shimmer in this polish is intense and absolutely mesmerizing!

With flash, to better show off that shimmer!

Miami Heat is described as "a sheer jelly red". If you love your reds like me, this one is a must-have!

Panama Piña Colada is described as "a creamy, soft melon yellow". Super bright, super pigmented without all the streaking that neons usually bring with them!

Paradise in the Tropics is described as "a deep fuschia". This shade is quite similar to Barefoot in Bermuda but if you love bright pinks, you know that they are NOT the same! =) Another huge favorite!

Topless in St. Tropez is described as "a creamy pink with a hint of coral". This one also had such a gorgeous hidden shimmer!

With flash, to show off that shimmer!

So there you have it, my darlings! The Keys collection from Barielle!
