Barielle Cream 'N Sugar

Press Sample 

If you work in an office setting, you may be quite limited on your polish choices. Thankfully, my boss allows me to wear any polish I'd prefer but if I ever got stuck in a stuffy place, Barielle Cream 'N Sugar is a perfect pink nude for the occasion. This is from Barielle's "Velvets" Collection.

I used a base of Cult Nails Get It On, 3 coats of polish and finished it with Digital Nails Ain't Nobody Got Time For That. I had hoped this was a creme like the name implies, but instead, I'm just calling this "holy sheer". Barielle calls it a "sheer soft beige" but either I don't know what beige is, or they don't.

I was pretty determined to make this opaque in three coats so this is a bit of a thick coated three but it still dried well with my top coat, so I'm calling it a win. You can see that it's almost a good mannequin hands polish for me.

In the shade, you can really see how sheer it is. I have VNL (visible nail line) on all nails. I don't know how this would fair for someone with stained nails, so if you're stained you may want to proceed with caution.

Indoors with some indirect sunlight. You have no idea how happy I am to have my new door and screen storm door so I can bring you photos like these. It's a little scary posting my hands all close up but I do my best to make them pretty. I don't Photoshop out my cuticles or any cuts, although I know that's a popular thing to do. Nothing against those bloggers, I just don't have time for that. Dat.

Overall this is a pretty office nude but too sheer for me to want to grab regularly. I would like to try it in a jelly sandwich (layering a glitter between sheer layers of polish) but that will have to wait for another day.

Barielle retails for $8/bottle.
