Review: Barielle Shades Nail Polish in Island Breeze

I always like to do reviews of products when I’ve had chance to give them a fair try out. I’ve been wearing the nail polish featured in my NOTD post yesterday for a little while now and feel it’s time for a review!

The Barielle Shades Nail Polish in Island Breeze was just one from a gorgeous set I purchased from TK Maxx a few days ago – it caught my eye instantly and I couldn’t wait to try it out!

The way that the pricing works out, the nail polish cost me just under £2.00 – a bargain by anyone’s standards! Could it live up to my expectations at that price?

The short answer is…yes! I really like this polish, and have been very impressed by it in general. Each coat dries quickly and it’s almost opaque after just one coat, let alone two.

I love that the nail polish doesn’t have a strong, nauseating smell like some others I’ve used lately – it’s quite a breath of fresh air really (quite literally!).

I have noticed a couple of small chips, but to be fair they’re more like smudges. I’m very clumsy and tried to rummage through a bag after not giving them enough time to fully dry, so it’s my own fault really.

I have to admit that I had never heard of Barielle before I picked up this set – I feel like I was missing out before! A great nail polish at a fantastic price.

Have you ever used any of the Barielle products? Let me know what you think of them!

Stay Creative,
