Barielle Karma Kollection: Swatches & Review

Hey folks, hope you're all doing well! I have a super fun review for you today, three colors from Barielle's summer shades the Karma Kollection. (Not gonna lie, it's my pet peeve when people turn words with a "c" into a "k" haha.) I haven't seen anything new from Barielle since last year so I was happy to see these.

Soul-er Powered is a warm sunny yellow with lots of silver and gold shimmer. It is really fabulous, maybe my favorite yellow shimmer ever! It is just so happy and bright, I love it. This is two coats, it was very nicely opaque and creamy.

Positive ZEN-ergy is a warm mossy green with silver shimmer. I love the shimmer in this shade, it makes me think of frosted glass shower doors haha. This one was super easy to apply too, a big plus. Sometimes these crème based shimmers can get thick but this was on point. Two coats.

I thought Positive ZEN-ergy looked familiar at first sight, and then I realized it is very close to a BB Couture polish I just reviewed! Sexy Centerfold is super similar in base color, but PZ has bigger shimmer particles.

Gotta Have Fate is a gorgeous orange coral, super creamy and opaque. This is also two coats. I swear I have a million corals, but I always want more! I think they look really nice on my skin tone. (The second photo of this looks a little muted, because the sun decided to hide and I only got one good sun picture.)

I usually love Barielle's polishes, glad they have new ones out. These are on sale at www.barielle.com for $8 each, and they are currently buy one get one 50% off. The three other polishes in this collection are really pretty too, Welcome-OHM is a crème plum, Do Unto Others is a blue/green jelly crème, and Buddha-ful is a beige with soft baby pink, blue, and light gray foil flakes. Check em out!

  9. Oh, I'm glad you posted that BB comparison shot - I thought it looked similar! That's the only one I really feel like I would need so I'll stick with the BB Couture. Although, that yellow on you looks fantastic!

  12. OOOH! thanks so much for posting these Barielle swatches. yellow polish is so hard for many of us to do...but I can definitely do this one - it's got enough gold in it for me to pull it off but still looks yellow but not taxi cab or crayon or neon yellow like so many out there. These newest Barielle shades are amazing. I really love the flaky Budda-full I have seen as an overlay and one close up of it alone (though only would use it as an overlay). Only one that is not too much 'me' in this collection is the blue one - but I don't pull off power blues well at all. I look sick. i think soon as this next check is in and rent is paid, I am putting in a Barielle order. They have a free ship for orders of $25 that I think is still going on..normally it's free ship after $50. Barielle makes my all time fav nail treatment products I swear by...the nail strengthening cream..buy the tub - it cost more but last longer than the tube and you will use it - also you get just what you need in the tub. Then they have the best nail oil called Intensive Renewal Nail Oil. I used to used them separate nights..then read on the B web site, they are made to go together...cream first...I wait about 30 sec then add the oil over it and amazing, the oil does not break the cream down like usually happens. They work together. I have nails that grow, don't peal, are no thin, no cuticles, healthy nails and skin around them. I have tried tons of products - folks rave about Lush. NOTHING from it compared to the Barielle treatments. And their Total Care Foot Cream is to die for! Don't put the pump cap on it however, it's too thick and the pump does not work due to that..it gets a vacuum in it. So just keep the screw cap that comes on it. My feet are amazingly soft and I have nasty feet without this...ditto on having tried a zillion and one foot creams. This is the BEST. Some of the metallic polish shades in the Barielle line are really interesting too. Thanks again for posting these shots...post the other new B. shades ASAP.
