Barielle - Falling Star NOTD

Hey everyone hope you've all had a great week so far. Today I want to show you Barielle Falling Star from the All Laquered Up collection released A/W 2009. It's a really unique polish in my eyes in that I have not seen a dupe or anything similar from other brands. It's a really intense blue (reminds me of Boots No. 7 Poolside Blue) with coppery/orange glitter. Unsurprisingly the glitter works because it's the complementary colour of blue.
Love it
The formula dries pretty quickly though it is quite thick in my opinion so a drop or two of thinner would help with application. Here I have applied two coats and a generous coat of Seche Vite as the polish dries with a gritty finish.
Yesterday I went for a well deserved day at the Spa with my cousin. I can't begin to tell you how heavenly it was just to have a massage and sit in the steam room! Anyway I wore Falling Star as a full manicure and probably due to the combination of high heat, steam, humidity, Chlorine over several hours the nail polish was peeling off in chunks by home time. I know Seche Vite didn't help matters but I couldn't believe how easy it was to peel off. Yes on the way home I couldn't help but keep peeling...
So bad I know! 

Blue's like this tend to cause me to worry about potential staining but I am happy to report there was none on the nails I did remove with remover!

So who else has this polish? 
Do you guys peel polish off too? xx


  1. I've only heard bad things about this polish even though it is so pretty! I try not to pick my polish off but I will pick at my glitter nails! I go crazy with the glitter! lol

  2. I would like to see this blue base just a little darker, but this is really pretty as is. Too bad it's so easily flaked!

  3. When I first got into polish I didn't like this one.. now I appreciate it for how unique it is!

  4. That's a neat colour! Haha, I'm a peeler too-- especially if it's chunky glitter or those staining blues!

  5. I always end up picking.peeling my polish off. Haha. But that colour is divine!
