Barielle – High Steppin’ Summer 2010 Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 9 - 2010

No idea when this is coming out over here… or even IF it’s coming out, I’m still sulking over the missing Wildflower Collection.  Maybe we can expect this next Winter, who knows? *shrugs*

That aside… High Steppin’ is Barielle’s Summer 2010 offering.  Mostly metallics which aren’t generally my favourite finish unless they’re formulated well enough to avoid streakiness but I’m pretty keen on some of the colours and I like that they’ve included some of their glittery numbers too.  I’m a big fan of those.

Enough chatting, have a looksie…

Barielle High Steppin', Barielle Summer 2010, Barrielle Nail Polish Summer, Summer 2010 Nail Polish Trends, Summer 2010 Nail Polish Collections, Barielle New Collection, Barielle Summer Collection, High Steppin' Nail Polish, Brands - Barielle, Nail Polish, Nails, Summer, Summer 2010, Cosmetics - Nail Polish

So here’s the lowdown, shade by shade…

Electric Boogie: Inky Blue with teal glitter (yes please!)

Slow Motion: Light metallic Lavender (possibly… if it’s edgy rather than sugary…)

Freestyle: Metallic mint with Silver Glitter (hmmmm….. not sure… maybe)

Passion Pirouette: A grape metallic purple (I’m nodding furiously)

Night Moves: Sparkling metallic silver (meh….)

Belly Dance: Nude taupe with shimmer (ewwoooogah! as Leila says in a fit of enthusiasm!)

So that’s half the collection in my shopping basket if and when it ever gets released over here.

What do you think?

  1. Im so interested to see how Belly Dance looks in swatches 😀

    Most gorgeous shade of the collection to my mind are passion pirouette & freestyle. Slow Motion has got the potential to be super pretty, but would be scared if it ends up a little bit dull in real life. I would need to see the bottle in real life to be able to make a definite decision. Maybe because it’s metallic, it will just have a nice glow when the light hits it. Belly Dance and Electric Boogie would also be truly ab-so-lu-te-ly gorgeous on you, but I would not wear it personally as it is not my kind of shades.
    It’s a big yes from me overall.

    I like the more subtle shades out of those, especially the taupe-y colour.

    These look beautiful. I emailed Barielle re the Wildflower collection but they never replied :(
