I’m *nearly* over the whole matte top coat thing… a couple more mani’s then I’ll be able to move on.

This is Barielle’s Shades range in “Grape Escape” – It’s gorgeous.Β  It’s actually better glossy… but well, I’m a mattifying sheep.

Application is smooth – this is 2 coats.Β  No issues to speak of, perhaps a touch slow drying… but nothing a quick-dry top coat doesn’t fix.

Desperate to check out some more colours… looks like they have a lovely A/W collection out at the moment.Β  Let me introduce you…

Putt-E-On-MeClassic clay

Blackened Bleu Black with turquoise glitter

Lava Rock Black with red pearl swirl

I don’t even like glitter and I’m salivating at the thought of the black/turquoise one!

    That is a lush shade of purple! Never heard of Barielle though. But as you’ve given it the thumbs up, I may have to try it πŸ™‚ Where can you get them from? Never been a fan of the matte nail polish look but this actually looks good πŸ™‚ I think you may have converted me! Was this a matte polish or did you use a special type of top coat? xx

    Thought you was cutting them friggin nails off?!!? Im so overly jealous! haha.

    Seriously though hun, that colour looks stunning on your nails. I’ve never heard of Barielle though, like the above poster said, but I certainly want to know of them!

    Gorgeous grape color! And your nails are amazing! I wish i had real nails like that.. mine are all man-made πŸ˜›

  4. Replica says:

    That is such a pretty shade, really striking.

  5. Sian says:

    I’m glad you did this, I forgot to ask what you were wearing on Weds! How have your nails grown so long?

  6. Very striking purple!! I like the matte effect, and you have such perfect nails!!

  7. Rhamnousia says:

    How do you manage to take care of Leila and not damage those gorgeous nails?! *cough * Mr L * cough* πŸ˜‰

    I love that colour, the matte-ness is what drew me into it, I have no matte shades at all and I should really get some.

    What a gorgeous purple! I’ve tagged you btw, check out my blog x

    The colors are lovely!

  10. @Kim – Hello! You can buy these from the Barielle website at http://www.barielle.co.uk/category_s/30.htm.

    As for mattifying, I’m sure you know you can get matte top coats, but I’m cheap and used Nail Tek’s Foundation II (which is a ridge filler) on top of the polish to mattify. I bought my Nail Tek on eBay, very reasonable!

  11. @Jo – hahaa, I have filed them down now, they’re still long – just not *so* long.

    Barielle are great, I emailed them asking if the fall shades were still available as I couldn’t add them to my basket, they said that they were and looked into the problem for me (hence my delay in replying to you lovely lot).

    I’m really liking some of these Fall shades though.

  12. @Tali – thank you lovely, well you can’t be perfect in *every* way… that would just make me want to poke your eyes out πŸ˜›

  13. @Replica – the best thing about autumn/winter – the purples come out!

  14. @Sian – I’m a ladee of leisure innit. No washing up for me = long nails

  15. @Jamilla – thank you! Yes, I’ve been on a bit of a matte kick recently (it’s about time – that trend is well and truly leaving the dock!)

  16. @Rhamnousia – Barielle do a matte top coat you should check out. It’s a far more cost effective way of dipping your toe into the matte phenomenon without spending a fortune!

    My nails are really strong, they’ve always been able to resist lots of knocks, scuffs etc. I just have to make sure there are no sharp edges or baby gets a scratch on the thigh mid nappy change… cue incredibly guilty Mum. πŸ™

  17. @tackyblueeyeshadow – thanks! I’ll check it out xxx

  18. @Kelly – aren’t they just? xx
