Barielle Ribbon & Lace

Barielle Ribbon & Lace Fall 2015Even though it is decidedly still summer here in Charlotte the fall collections are rolling in. For fall/winter 2015 Barielle released their 5 piece Mirror Mirror collection and it’s pretty darn gorgeous.

The first polish I tried was Ribbon & Lace because I thought it would make a nice transition polish from summer to fall. Barielle describes Ribbon & Lace as a muted teal creme and I seriously love it. Ribbon & Lace feels like an updated version of my favorite transition polish last year; essie Fall In Line.

The formula is, as usual with Barielle polishes, fantastic. I used 2, easy coats in my swatches.

The Mirror Mirror collection will be available soon on

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump!

SinfulColors – Truth or Lavendare

SC - Truth or Lavendare Another demi-matte? Yes! I love the name on this one and while I’m not usually a fan of punctuation in nail polish names, I really wanted a “?” on the end.
