Barielle: Some Like it Hot 5-pack!

Hey guys!  Happy Friday!

Today I have some swatches for you of the colors you can find in the Barielle 5-pack "Some Like it Hot"

Lily of the Valley
Lily of the Valley is a shimmer/metallic bright grass green color.  The formula was a little bit sheer on the first coat but I only needed 2 coats for the above picture.

Gotta Have Fate
Gotta Have Fate has been a favorite Barielle shade of mine since it was released last year. It's a gorgeous deep coral with a super opaque and easy to work with formula.  I used 2 coats for the above picture, though a thicker application can definitely get away with just one.

Life of the Party
Life of the Party is a fun bright pink creme polish.  The formula was great and it's another very opaque shade.  I used two coats, but it could easily be worn with one.

Sunshine is a gorgeous yellow creme that has just a hint of shimmer to it.  I love this polish!  It wasn't streaky or awkward to apply, as some yellows can be.  I also only needed 2 coats for the opacity shown.  It is super bright and summery!

Surf's Up
Surf's Up is a vivid blue creme polish that is extremely opaque.  I fell in love with this color the moment the brush hit my nail for the first time.  I loved this polish right up until it came time to take it nails were smurftastically blue!  They loved the color so much they wanted to keep it longer than I did!   So a word of advice:  Double up your base coat when you wear this polish!  It's too gorgeous to not wear!

A side note:  The staining came off immediately with my usual tactic of using Roux: Clean Touch which is actually meant for removing hair dye stains from your skin, but I have found it works wonders for polish-stained nails as well.  Don't let staining keep you away from pretty polishes!

All in all I am really loving these Barielle Shades from the Some Like it Hot 5-pack.

The 5-packs can be purchased from Barielle's Website, and retail at $25 a pack, which is a $7 savings from buying 5 individual polishes! A really nice deal!

What do you think of these colors?
