Barielle – Cashmere or Loose Me NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 7 - 2010

Barielle’s Cashmere or Loose Me is described as a “Soft brown with copper pearl” and it’s the only shade from the new Style in Argyle collection that gave me application issues.

You can see the dragging near the cuticles?  This is with 3 coats… I’m not happy about that, though to be fair, it was less noticeable in real life than it is in the picture.  What I do love is the ‘copper pearl’ – it gives an added dimension, something that I’ve come to expect from Barielle’s polishes.

The copper pearl isn’t visible in the above photo (though it is on the nail), so I’ve taken a photo of the bottle which shows the effect well.

This is the first 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.

    what does it mean ‘cuticle dragging’?
    This is a gorgeous colour in the bottle but for me, it does not work so well as a nail polish. I can’t put my finger on what it is, the application is perfect and even and glossy as usual but something is not working for me. xx

    Same as Liloo for me. It looks ok, and the pearl bit is gorgeous, but I really don’t like it on. But then I am terribly biased about this collection!

    I was sent a couple of polishes from this collection — this one and Cowl of the Wild. Both look pretty good on, but Cowl of the Wild looked better next to my ruddy skin!
