Barielle – A Bouquet for Ava NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 21 - 2010

Is it teal?  Is it blue?  Argh… can’t decide…

Petrol blue, that’s what I’m gonna call it.

Barielle’s A Bouquet for Ava is a stunning creme polish.  Opaque in 2 coats (as pictured), the formula is a beauty… smooth and thin but heavily pigmented.

I dislike the semi-matte finish once dried and was sure to top off with a coat of Seche Vite for the ultra-glossy look I love.  I’m on my 2nd full day of wear and I’ve no chips and only minimal tip wear, so far so good!

Barielle’s A Bouquet for Ava is available online from Barielle and priced at £8 (though they’re still currently offering BOGOF)

EDIT: Still love it, but you need to know… a base coat IS. A. MUST.  Trust me, this stains like a bitch.

Signed… Smurf Nails.

    Any idea how long the BOGOF will last? I think this could be a good time to start my Barielle collection!

  9. Oooh this shade is gorgeous! I don’t tend to wear a lot of blues on my nails but I like the way it looks on you and since I’m equally as pasty, I may give it a shot! =)

    I wish I’d read about the need for a base coat before slapping it on; I’m sporting lovely greeny-blue fingers today. Erk!
