Barielle – Aura Angora NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 9 - 2010

Not my colour… too clashy and obnoxious against my skintone… but on the right person, this could be a real conversation starter (in a good way!)

Barielle’s Aura Angora is an opaque, creamy mustard.  It’s more wearable than I thought it would be, though I think it would suit shorter fingernails better.

Formula throughout the collection is consistent, three coats needed to achieve that perfect finish but all provide a high gloss shine.

This is the third in the series of six that I was sent for review consideration.
The Style in Argyle collection is available to purchase online from the Barielle website priced at £8 each.  Though currently, the Spring/Summer and Autumn collections are available on a “buy one get one free” basis, rendering them a bargainous £4 per polish.

    Ok, maybe you kept the real gems for the end but I don’t think I am digging this collection. Maybe it’s too ‘creme’ for me to love it. x

    This color reminds me of Hayley Williams from the Band Paramore…i think she’d love it, though I don’t completely understand why I suddenly thought of her, must be the uniqueness of the shade…the color makes me think of cheese hehehe…

    I didn’t think I would like this colour when I saw it in the bottle but I must admit it looks really good. :)

    Hmm, I find myself oddly liking it – it’s pumpkin-y.

    I can’t give Aura Angora any love. Just scrubbed a blob of cat vom out of the carpet and it was EXACTLY THIS COLOR. The idea of voluntarily coating mustard-esque cat yak polish on my fingernails horrifies me.

    Excuse me, I need to go paint my nails with something purple and sparkly so I can calm down.

  10. I second what Long Tall Ally said. Love Barielle’s formula, but the colour is definitely not for me.

    I love it! After buying Butter London Bumster, I am really liking the mustard nail look. This was the Barielle swatch I was most excited to see – thanks!

    I didn’t think I would have liked this color but it’s actually very pretty. I don’t think it’d look too good on me either though.

    love this! it’s the only shade i bought from the fall collection. i was kinda disappointed in it. i like browns as much as the next polish fiend, but a whole set of them? odd.

    Anyone know how to mix the two colors Aurora and Cowl so as to get the effect in the Argyle ad?
