Review: Shades by Barielle - Sugar Rush

Are you ready for spring yet? I know the perfect thing to get you in the mood. The Spring 2009 collection is called Sugar Rush (which goes perfectly with MAC's Sugar Sweet, right?) and it contains 6 candy colored polishes with Barille's signature healthy "3-Free" formulation. "3-Free" means free of formaldehyde, toulene and dibutyl-phthalate and safe for pregnant women to use.

Barielle Nail Polish
-Swizzle Stix- Robin Egg Blue
-Sweet Addiction- Minty Green
-Lemondrops- Electric Yellow
-Grape Escape- Plush Purple
-Cotton Candy- Vibrant Pink Sparkle
-Decadance- Metallic Turqouise

I am completely new to the brand but now know it's safe to say the polish is very opaque. On a scale of 1-5, 1 being sheer and 5 being opaque, I'd give them all 4's. Two coats was perfect. I apologize for the crappiness of the following photo.

Decadance, Sweet Addiction, Swizzle Stix, Grape Escape and Cotton Candy.

I didn't photograph Lemondrops, but it's equally awesome. Overall I'm quite impressed by this brand. The colors are true, not too sheer and last for about a week. I would definitely purchase again. At $8 each, they're around the same price of OPI or Essie. I like them all but my favorites of these were Decadence and Swizzle Stix, which reminded me of my old school Hard Candy polish in Sky.

Face Candy Grade: A+

Ooohh--these look like the inside of an Easter basket. I like! They'll nicely compliment my girly pink makeup case!
