So I went digging in my overstuffed "un-tried" helmer drawer and pulled this out. I got this Barielle from a blog sale. This is the first time I've ever used a Barielle polish. I still have 3 more to try out. My verdict: So far so good! This is Wrap Me In Ribbon from the Holiday Hustle collection from Winter of 2010. Wrap Me In Ribbon is a pinky mauve metallic polish. Barielle describes it as a metallic raspberry with violet and copper pearl undertones. Maybe I'm blind but I don't see the copper at all. I see it in the bottle... settled in the bottom. I tried everything I could to shake it up well but nothing worked. It's still a pretty color. The first coat started off really sheer. I didn't expect that. But the second coat somehow gave me a perfectly even and full coverage. Application can be tricky. It's metallic so you have to be careful with your brush strokes because it can be streaky. Regardless, I really like it...
So since I don't have much experience with Barielle, what do you guys think of this brand?
