Barielle Sweet Treats Collection

Hi lovely readers!

How are we all? I'm am LOVING the weather we're having in the UK at the minute. I could live with this for most of the year I reckon!

Today I have four polishes from the Barielle Sweet Treats collection from Spring 2013. There should be five in this set but I picked these up in TKMaxx and one was missing (scroat bags!). I'm pretty impressed I found such a recent collection in there though.



Banana Drop.

Banana Drop

Banana Drop is a pale yellow cream. This was a bit of a pain to apply. The formula was quite watery and it took 3 coats to level out. This shade of yellow is really perfect for summer though, it reminds me of lemon meringue. You're seeing this without top coat.

Orange Parfait.

Orange Parfait is a muted coral orange. This applied perfectly in two coats. I loved this so much more than I thought I would! It's not quite bright enough to be a stand out coral orange for me but I loved it none-the-less. I kind of liked that it wasn't really in your face. You're seeing this with NYC top coat.

Blue Cotton Candy.

Blue Cotton Candy is a soft blue, antique looking shimmer, it kind of looks like small flakes but I'm pretty sure it's shimmer lol. You know me and shimmer...I love this! I knew as soon as I applied this it would be one of my favourites. This went on like a dream in two coats. I added NYC top coat as it dries a little on the dull side.

Green Apple Chew.

Green Apple Chew

Green Apple Chew is a bright green, leaning yellow, cream polish. It's not quite neon. The first coat of this went on quite sheer and I found the formula a little watery. It did level out after three coats though and I really like this colour, it's fun and bright! You may have seen me use this in some nail art recently. I really wish this had shimmer in it to spice it up some more, but I'm just being picky. You're seeing this without top coat.

I'm so gutted I didn't get the final shade to this collection (Lilac Jelly Bean) as I have nothing like it in my stash. My picks are Blue Cotton Candy and Orange Parfait. 

What do you think? Have you picked up any TKMaxx bargains/mishaps recently?

  1. Love Banana Drop and Green Apple Chew. I'm really liking bright colours at the moment.

    I love TK Maxx myself, I managed to pick up 3 sets of Color Clubs last weekend. I'm not allowed to go back for a while as that was 21 polishes!!!!

    1. TKMaxx is a dangerous place lol. I'm glad mine isn't the best at stocking polish or my bank would hate me! haha

  2. I love Green Apple Chew, limes, oranges and yellows are really grabbing me at the minute! I haven't been in TKMaxx in years, I think I'd die of excitement if I saw Color Club sets locally.
