Barielle Wildflower Collection – June Bug NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 9 - 2010

Taking advantage of Barielle‘s current ‘buy one get one free’ offer, I find myself the new owner of four new Barielle shades.  I should have behaved and gone for two… but I even had a hard time narrowing it down to four.

I chose two shades from the Spring Wildflowers Collection (which was WILDLY late to arrive in the UK) and two from the High Steppin’ Summer collection.

I’m being a bit of a kid in a sweet shop, because I still have a couple left from the Urban Decay Summer of Love set to show you, but I simply couldn’t resist cracking open June Bug (£8) first.  After all, I’ve been desperately desiring it for the last 5 months.

I’m delighted and annoyed with it all at the same time.

I mean, once applied… I love it and I’m very pleased that I bought it… It’s like nothing else that I own.  But my God I turned the air blue during application.

Gloop, gloop, gloop.  This polish is thick.

It spread like marmite on my nails and with the addition of the glitter gave me a horrible satin bumpy finish that needed two coats of quick dry to stop me from reaching for the nail varnish remover.

However, once all is said and done… it’s one of those polishes that ends up looking far neater and more uniform than you would have thought possible during application.

The glitter is subtle and it mixes in beautifully with the shimmer that is present in the muted baby-blue base.  Mr. L couldn’t detect the fuchsia glitter from a distance of 4 foot until the sun caught my nails and it gave a litte sparkle.

I’m talking myself round as I’m writing this and casting glances at my fingertips.  I was cross with it as I was trying to work with that 2nd coat that was drying as quickly as I could put it on… but you simply have to forgive a polish that ends up looking as pretty as this does.

That pesky reflection below makes my nail bed look bumpy, it’s not… two layers of top coat sorted that out nicely.

Barielle are still offering BOGOF on their new Spring/Summer collections, but I’m not sure for how much longer.

What do you think?  Do you like it?

    It’s SO pretty! But I just end up getting so angry and frustrated with polishes that won’t go on nicely!! xx

  2. Jenni says:

    I better HAD like it as I too bought it as a BOGOF.
    I heard Myrza’s Meadow is cr@ppy too in that regard so I am not exactly looking forward to them. And that’s a travesty.

    This nailpolish is soooo amazing <3 O.O

  4. Meh, it doesn’t do it for me. I like the colour but I really DON’T like the sparkles….. xx

  5. sarah says:

    i love the colour, it looks amazing but i won’t be buying as i can’t deal with hard to apply polish! shame 🙁

  6. I am happy to hear that you got them FINALLY! I think I should get myself some, too 🙂 what other shades did you get? x

  7. gio says:

    That’s an interesting and pretty shade but too bad the application’s difficult, can’t deal with that.

  8. Lillian says:

    Oh god its such a stunning colour. I NEEED it.

  9. Rebecca says:

    OMG YEAH I am SO happy you posted this website! I’ve been looking for a UK retailer of Barielle, and this is BOGOF as well. WOOHOO. Gonna get June Bug, don’t care if it’s gloopy yeah!

  10. Rebecca says:

    Actually, I have a question, the BOGOF thing doesn’t seem to work when I go through to checkout! I put 2 spring/summer shades in my basket and it came to £16 🙁 Even though it says that it’s still going on on the website. Did you have this problem?

  11. Hi Rebecca,

    You’re doing what I did! I had to contact the company to be shown how to order correctly!

    You need to go to the page of the polish you want… like so…

    And then you can see a drop down list? Choose your 2nd (free) polish from that list xx

    Oh well that is very silly indeed! Thanks for letting me know though, now I can order 😀
