Barielle Taupe Notch

Barielle Taupe Notch COVERWhile I love Barielle polishes I don’t expect super clever from Barielle. But Taupe Notch totally makes me laugh.

Anyway! Barielle has a new collection out for fall 2014. It is called Me Couture and contains 6 polishes that are a combination of retro and intense shades to compliment current styles and trends.

Taupe Notch is a dark taupe creme. I love the brown undertones in this polish. While the brown isn’t prevalent it’s not overwhelming. So the polish never looks muddy.

A polish like Taupe Notch is a great alternative for those of you who aren’t sold on the brown polish trend.

The formula is lovely. I used two coats in my swatches. And as with all Barielle polishes, Taupe Notch is 5 free and not tested on animals (meow).

Because I broke one of my nails last week I’ve been using Barielle Fortifying Nail Builder Base Coat and for a top coat I used Barielle No Chip Speed Dry top coat.

Taupe Notch is available on Barielle’s website and retails for $8.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump and keep your eyes open for my review of the rest of the polishes from the Me Couture collection!

  1. Not personally lovin’ that ashy shade of brown, but coincidentally I just bought that fortifying base coat… it arrived from Amazon yesterday, haven’t tried it yet. Disappointed that it’s green tinged rather than clear (which did not show up in the boxed photo on Amazon), because I wanted the option of wearing it as a base OR alone… haven’t tried it yet, hope it reads as clear not greenish. Was looking for a product that would actually nourish (rather than just harden) my thin and split-prone nails, so I’m hoping I found it!
