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.
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!
