Barielle’s Sugar Rush is a vibrant collection for the upcoming summer season. There are six shades (each retailing for $8.00) in the collection:

  • Cotton Candy Vibrant pink sparkle
  • Lemondrops Electric yellow
  • Sweet Addiction Minty green
  • Swizzle Stix Robin’s egg blue
  • Decadence Metallic turquoise
  • Grape Escape Plush purple hue

This is my first time trying out Barielle’s nail polish, and I was impressed by the pigmentation and creaminess of the polishes. I found most of the polishes applied nearly flawlessly (despite my rushed application), which is a huge plus!

Cotton Candy is a soft medium pink with lots of pretty pink sparkle. It is a little sheerer than some of the other shades in the collection.

Lemondrops is a creamy, bright primary yellow. Great texture, finish, and extremely opaque.

Sweet Addiction is a deep green-teal cream. Again, the finish and feel of this polish is fantastic, and there is lots of color in each coat (no more than two required).

Swizzle Stix is a creamy, sky blue. I didn’t have such great application with this, but I think it is because I applied too-thin of a coat on the first go round, which ended up in a streaky finish. I think if I wasn’t so quick on the draw, this would look dreamy.

Decadence is a rich, jewel-toned turquoise. It’s incredibly stunning, and even though it’s quite deep, I think the shimmer in it makes it perfect for summer.

Grape Escape is a really intense royal purple cream. It’s so opaque and creamy–it’s stunning in person.
