Barielle Falling Star

Happy Tuesday ladies! Welcome to all my new followers!! And a very warm thank you to all of the kind ladies who referred you! For today's mani I have Barielle Falling Star, which is another polish I got from my best friend for my birthday.

Falling Star is a gorgeous cornflower blue with small round copper glitter. It's opaque in two coats, and I absolutely love the creme finish with glitter. My issue here was the formula, as the formula was terrible! On the first few strokes I thought maybe that the bottle was never properly sealed, as it was thick, goopy and stringy. I tried to work with it, but only got 6 nails in before I ran and grabbed the polish thinner. I added 15 drops before it was easy to work with. I thought there was something wrong with my bottle, but a Google search proved that this is the formula of the polish.

Although I don't normally like super thick polish, the pay off was gorgeous so I know I'll be reaching for this polish again in the future. The photos below show 2 coats of Barielle Falling Star with 1 coat of Seche Vite.

  1. I've never tried a Barielle but this color is so lovely. I love those shades of blues that range from cobalt to dark periwinkle. The gold flecks are beyond awesome. You always seem to find the coolest polish!

  2. I had the same experience with my bottle, but damn, cornflower blue + copper? I'll live with the need for thinner! :)

  3. wow, this looks great on you! mine wasn't tooooo thick, it was workable with me, I was surprised!!

  4. Thanks ladies!! I definitely recommend this, just make sure you already own a bottle of nail polish thinner lol.

  5. oh! it's the 1st time I see a creme with glitter! Barielle seems a really nice brand!
    The overwhole mani looks so pretty!

  6. Ooooo! One of my Barielle lemmings! It's so gorgeous - the copper and blue combination is so beautiful. Good to know about adding thinner. :D
