Nailstalgia: Barielle Falling Star [Swatch] [Nail Art]




Hey guys, happy Friday!

Can you believe it's already the end of the month? This time, Nailstalgia falls on the final day of the month for a change! I really wanted to use one of my 'untried' polishes for this series this time, so I decided to show you Barielle- Falling Star!  I've had this sucker for maybe two years and never gotten to it. Gah!

Falling Star was originally released as part of the Fall 2009 All Lacquered Up collection!




Falling Star has a purple-leaning blue base (Is it periwinkle? Mmmm, not quite, IMO!) with copper-orange hex and square glitters. Pretty simple!

I actually didn't realize there were two shapes of glitter in this polish until I started looking at the photos on the computer! The squares seem to be more numerous...

Artificial light, two coats:



A little closer:





The design on ring, pinkie, and thumb is from MoYou London- Sailor 05, and I used Kleancolor- Metallic Orange to stamp!

I wore this for a few days on both hands and really enjoyed it!


Formula: It's workable, but has a very strange viscosity that feels a bit runny, but then tends to clump up on itself and almost drag or pull if you're overzealous. Very hard to describe, but basically it could self-level a little better. It does build nicely to opacity in two coats, though, and wasn't difficult or anything- just not perfect!





Have you tried this shade?
