Matchy Matchy…Oribe hair care meets Barielle nail polish!

 Luxury hair care Oribe’s hottest NEW range is their Bright Blonde product range, read more about luscious Oribe here. I was lusting over the beautiful packaging so much that I decided to paint my nails in a hue to match, it’s the new thing didn’t you know!

 Diving into my nail polish drawer which is bursting full of polishes in a rainbow of colours I found a Barielle colour I’ve not worn in a while, it’s called Berry go Round. If you aren’t familiar with this brand I’ve posted about them before Read here. A quick file, base coat, 2 coats of Colour and a top coat finishing with cuticle oil and ta dah! Nails like you’ve just stepped out of a salon.

A quick file and shape to tidy up, I prefer my nail shape to be natural. Paint two coats and apply a top coat and cuticle oil for the perfect DIY mani.

Summer in a Bottle

20130629-174317.jpgBarielle’s story began 30 years ago when husband and wife duo devised a breakthrough formulation to condition the hooves of their million-dollar thoroughbred racehorses. A few weeks went by when they had realised that they had discovered that they had also created a million-dollar product for nails—one that would quickly become an integral element in the modern manicure and pedicure. The cream, which strengthened their horses’ hooves to resist splits and cracks, had the same effect on the nails of the jockeys that applied it. Reformulated for women and men, the miracle product “Nail Strengthener Cream” was born and Barielle was founded.

20130629-175036.jpgStaying true to their origins while remaining on the forefront of cutting-edge formulations and industry trends,
renowned for their nail, hand, foot and skin care BARIELLE released their nail shades range in 2005 with over 75 shades and over 20 cute nail sets with fashion forward hues added each season using cutting edge formula’s to keep up to speed with new trends.

20130629-175830.jpg I’m using “Ocean Breeze” from my Popsicle Summer Fun pack, the colours are so nice it’s hard to choose one. This set contains:
Ocean Breeze
Berry Go Round
Mint Ice Cream Cone
Peach Popsicle
Pink Flip-Flops

20130629-180611.jpg The bottle is the perfect size to handle, the brush is long, the lacquer glides on with even coverage with no streaks even with one coat! I’ve painted 2 Coates and applied seche vite top coat and CND solar oil to my cuticles.

20130629-180938.jpg What do you think of the results? I’m really in love with this colour, it looks great against my skin tone and looks good against my rose gold watch.
