Barielle June Bug

Shades by Barielle June Bug is another from the Wildflower collection, and this is one of the colors that are to pay homage to women close to Barielle who are still battling or have lost their fight to ovarian cancer.  They describe the color as "teal with fuchsia glitter" but they forgot to mention the green shimmer (which photographed more blue than green) and the grey tint!

I really felt like this was more of a slate grey (think hex color #778899 for the nerds) and while inside I really didn't see the glitter, but it's there.  There's also this really awesome green shimmer, kind of like in the Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie but not as bright.  I used Seche Natural for my base and Seche Vite as my top coat and two coats of June Bug.  I was a little confused with the formula because it appears to be VERY thick, but after wiping the edge of the brush on the bottle, the polish was super thin on my nail for the first coat, and was fully opaque after the second coat.

Definitely a good color to wear to the office because of the hidden glitter and shimmer that you can't see across the room, but will entertain you during the day.  Now for sun (!) pictures!

Mmm sun!

  2. I don't like the name because June bugs are gross and fly into my hair, but the color is awesome!
