Barielle Some Like it Hot Collection

This set retails for less than what the five nail polishes would cost by themselves.  I think it's a very good deal considering the quality of Barielle nail polishes.  You can find it under "kits" or by clicking here.  I definitely liked the formula on these, it was consistent with other Barielles I've tried.  The colors are very basic, except for the shimmery green, which seemed to be out of place, but it was a pleasant surprise.  Sunshine (yellow) is by far the best yellow I have, yellows are notorious for their bad formula, but this was the exception for me.  It has some shimmer but you can only see a bit of it in the sun and in macro pictures, I'd say to the human eye this is a creme.  Life of the Party (Pink) is very similar to Deborah Lippmann I Kissed a Girl, this is a girly bright pink, love the formula as well.  Surf's Up (Blue) is a great color; unfortunately, it temporarily stained my nails after removal.  Gotta Have Fate (Orange) is gorgeous for summer, very easy to apply, almost a one-coater.  Lily of the Valley (green) was my favorite of the set.  It has a great gold and green shimmer, I bet this would be perfect for Christmas.  Overall, with the exception of Surf's Up, I think this set is wonderful if you are looking for basic colors with great formula.

  1. The translation in French on the kit is very funny : "gratuitement" means "for free" and not "without" !
    Your swatches are beautiful and I especially like the yellow polish.
