Barielle Fall 2013 Part Two ♥ Sophisticated Lady

Barielle Sophisticated Lady
Today I have the second Barielle Fall 2013 collection, Sophisticated Lady, comprised of 5 crème shades, one of which it shares with the Nude & Naughty collection.
So that I do not end up repeating myself, all five of these crèmes had a fantastic formula that was easy to apply in 2 coats.
Barielle Tres ChicBarielle In Good Taste
Tres Chic is a smooth blue that has that special dusty quality to it.  The shade is a very shades off from navy, with a lot of grey in it.  Very chic indeed!
In Good Taste is a polish we have already seen in the Nude & Naughty collection (here). 
Barielle Dinner at 8Barielle London High Tea
Dinner at 8 is an amazingly shiny candy apple red.  The picture above was taken without top coat.  It was so shiny I could see my reflection in it!
London High Tea is a perplexing shade.  In the bottle it is a bright fuchsia pink filled with gold shimmer, but that shimmer all but disappears on the nail - unless you are standing in direct sunlight.
Barielle Edgy
Edgy is the standout in the collection to me, along with Tres Chic.  I love this deep, vampy purple!  I have been wearing it on my toes for two weeks, and it is the perfect fall transition shade to wear with my open toe sandals.  It just got cold here yesterday, so the time for sandals may be over.  (Yay!)
This collection is can be purchased individually for $8.00, or as boxed set for $25.00 from barielle.com.  Don’t forget to sign up for their newsletter (bottom right hand corner) to receive a special discount on your first order!
