Barielle- Elle's Spell [Swatch]

Today I have Barielle- Elle's Spell to show you!  Elle's Spell might very well be Barielle's most well-known shade.


Elle's Spell is a cool-toned red, almost berry, jelly base filled with rainbow flakies.  They mostly show up red-orange-yellow through the color of the base.

Flakies + jelly is one of the best nail polish combos ever, in my opinion, so let's take a look!

Artificial light, three coats:

This polish is a must-have if you are even remotely into reds.  It's gorgeous, and I don't even know what else to say!  It glows!

Window-filtered daylight:

Outside, shade:

Formula: The base is sheer (being a jelly), but builds up nicely.  It could easily be worn at two coats, but I did three to deepen the color.  There is also no shortage of flakies, and the polish is balanced very nicely overall- I'm impressed!  It was also a nice consistency and easy to apply.


  1. What a fun polish! I agree, flakies in jelly are really neat looking.

    1. They are...makes me want to do more jelly sandwiches.

  2. This is much prettier than I thought it would be! Why don't I have this? :)

    1. I don't know, but you need it! Haha ~bad influence~
