Barielle Gentle Breeze nail polish collection swatches + review

Press Sample buttonGood Friday morning, lacquer lovers! Are you ready for the weekend? I’m excited as this is the last weekend my husband has to work all weekend long for awhile. *phew*! Today I have a 5 piece nail polish collection from Barielle called the Gentle Breeze collection. Let’s take a look! (All swatches shown with Barielle top coat.)

Barielle Champagne Bubbles | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Champagne Bubbles is an orange-brown crelly nail polish. To be honest, this one isn’t my favorite – I feel like I’m way too pale to pull off a color like this. This is 3 coats.

Barielle Gray Sky | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Gray Sky is a pale grey with just a hint of purple. It’s almost too frosty for my liking, but stops just short. This is 2 coats.

Barielle Pink Parasol | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Pink Parasol is a really lovely bubblegum pink. I did have trouble with getting it to even out. This is 3 coats.

Barielle Heaven Sent | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Heaven Sent is the star of this collection (for me). It’s a brighter blue polish, but there’s just enough drops of green in there to make it turquoise. This is 2 lovely coats.

Barielle Under the Sea | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Last is Under the Sea, a shimmery teal polish. My camera wanted to make it either too blue or too green, so this photo shows just a bit more green than it actually is.

You can pick this set up for $25 through Barielle, though for my money I would only pick up Heaven Sent and possibly Pink Parasol.

I’d love to know your thoughts on this polish collection, so holler at me in the comments!
