Barielle Shades Fall 2010 Style In Argyle

I can't wait for Fall. Sweaters and boots and rich creme colors. Barielle Shades Style in Argyle is a great selection of shades for Fall. They all have a warm cozy feel to them. Now this collection isn't going to be for everyone. They aren't bright or bold and a few of them might seem ugly to some. I, however, love them but I like unusual colors. These are very earthy colors without screaming 90's earth tones. Remember that? Blech!

The formula on all of them are wonderful. They only needed two coats and I could have gotten away with one with a thicker application. I can't comment on wear but if they compare to the other Barielle Shades polishes that I have they should be good.

Cashmere or Loose Me is described as a soft brown with copper pearl. To me this is more of a dark brownish rose and the copper pearl is very subtle and soft.



You can see the shimmer here.



Tight Knit is described as a purple brown creme. I think this is a pretty good description. It leans towards a neutral purple based brown.



Aura Angora is described as a royal gold creme. This is actually more of a muted mustard and reminds me of Revlon Street Wear Burnt but is a bit lighter and more gold. Love this one!



Unraveled Rust is described as a burnt rust creme. This is more of a chocolate shade. Reminds me of really good cocoa powder - a rich chocolate brown with a hint of red. This is very lush.



Wool You Marry Me? is described as a plum brown creme. I would agree but it is more on the plum side. Very shiny!!



Cowl of the Wild is described as a mushroom taupe creme and that is pretty spot on. This is a darker taupe and really nice.



Here it is under the Ott and it is more true to color. The sun seemed to lighten it.



Also, the bottle had a little makeover and the amount of polish in the bottle went down a smidge. Old bottle on the left and new bottle on the right. I don't know what the horse means?



These are available now online at Barielle and they always have that buy 2 get 1 free deal. I would purchase this entire collection because I like it that much.

lovely post! the horse is because the company first started making products for horse hooves to prevent them from splitting, and it translated to nails!

The horse is from their logo. Barielle originally started making products for the hooves of horses. They're the only one who really made the change to continue pursuing more products for humans instead of just putting "horse" products in the drugstores, like Mane and Tail and others.

I just learned something...didn't know they started out with horse products. I love this collection!

Some interesting ones in this collection. I might have to get Aura Angora because it reminds me of my old favorite fugly SH Forsythia.

Oo I forgot about Forsythia! I'll have to pull that one out.

Wow! Thank you very much. That is probably one of the best compliments I can receive.
