No Not Now, I Got A Headache, a Barielle review!

With a title like that, you know you're in for something good!

I apologize for the lack of posts.  I had told you I was going on vacation, but I usually put up a post announcing the official thing.  I just got back from Canada an hour ago. My happy place.  More on that in the next post.

I told you that Barielle had emailed me and asked me to be one of their official bloggers.  Now I do admit, I know very little about Barielle.  It's not a brand that you see very often, at least on the blogs I read.  I do own the set of browns from years ago-maybe 2009 or '10?  I had to search blog sales etc to complete that set.  I have yet to wear them! But when I looked through their website, I knew I could rock these products!

So I was asked to pick out a few products to try and some polish as well.  Here's what I picked out.

I immediately started with the nail cream.  Now I don't have any insight into how this product works yet as I just spent the last three days fishing and my hands in water. My nails are a damn mess at this point in time.  I am back to nubs for real. These pictures were taken before this took place.

What I can say, is this nail cream was initially made for horses' hooves back in the day. This is the first product that became Barielle.  I love the thickness of it, the feel of it on my nails-it's just silky and lovely.  I will be getting back to you about how it works on a later post.

I started this mani with the scrub you see next to the nail cream.  This was a fruity, coarse salt scrub that left a layer of oil on your hands to absorb into after you finished scrubbing.  I loved it and can't wait to try it on my sad feet!

Next I started my mani using the ridge filler as I have bad ridges and we all know it's bad to buff them out. This ridge filler left a nice matte finish. I have used this several times since this and I really like it!

Next I picked out several browns from this Nude and Naughty set.  You HAD to know I'd pick that one right? I picked out No Not Now and I Got A Headache, because they are brown and because the names crack me up!

This was my first time using Barielle polish.  I have to say, I like the formula.  It stayed where I put it. Usually I am a sloppy polisher, but with this, I didn't have too much clean up.

Here is the silly bottle shot.

The outside holos were made for me by More Nail Polish and not for sale.  The names were given in reference to stories on my blog.  But that's for another post.  In the middle are the Barielle.  No Not Now, I Got A Headache and In Good Taste.

Here are the starting shots.

These have a gorgeous shimmer to them.  I so love these browns!  Next I used acrylic paint and free handed some wonky starfish flowers.

I do kind of like how this came out!  Oh and I used the Barielle top coat on my base color.  It worked really well at drying to touch quickly.

Overall, my first foray into Barielle was a good one.  I truly like the polish and can't wait to play with more of it!  I've linked all the products listed here as I talked about them in case you didn't notice.

Since I'm now an official Barielle blogger, I will be showing you their newest polish colors etc.  I sure hope you've liked this so far!

Stay tuned for my first vacation pictures for this year!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
