Coming Soon – The All Lacquered Up Collection from Barielle

Exciting news fanatics! I’ve been dying to share this beyond thrilling development with all of you. For the past I don’t know how many months, I’ve had the good fortune to collaborate with top Celebrity Manicurist, Barielle Spokesperson and Shades by Barielle Creative Director, Elle, to create their fall and winter collections!! Can you even? Seriously, it’s like a dream come true. Believe me, if you had told me that someday I’d be dreaming up polish colors for a major brand like Barielle, I would have slapped you silly.

After spending a week backstage at New York Fashion Week and talking trends with Elle, we came up with 12 amazing straight-from-the-runway shades that will blow your mind. We just finalized the names last week and I’m hoping to have the finished polishes to show you soon. I’ve seen samples and let me tell you, they’re GORG.

Now you know because it’s named after ALU that there’s a green, right? And if I said gray, would that surprise you? Well, you haven’t seen a gray like this. And if I told you I named a color Falling Star could you imagine what that might look like? I wish I could spill more but I’ll let you salivate on that for now. More deets to come soon. I promise!

  16. Michelin says:

    I’m so excited to see what colors you’ve come up with. You have wonderful taste, and I’m only sorry I don’t yet know of any stores near me that carry Shades by Barielle.

  17. karen says:

  18. Jennifer A. says:

    Wow this will be bad for my budget… I can’t imagine not wanting all the shades with your taste at the helm of creating them!

    Will you please cover the new Chanel shades that came out last week? Thank you and congratulations!

  19. Jennifer A. says:

    Ooh, sorry for the double post, but speaking of Chanel, I wonder with your straight-from-the-runway tease if the collection will include that gorgeous mint green we saw on the Chanel runways!

  20. All Lacquered Up says:

    Thanks everyone! Your support means so much. I really hope you love the colors.

    KimmyDarling – I don’t know what their deal is with CVS but it may have just been to carry last years collections and not the whole line.

    Jennifer A- What Chanel’s are you referring to? I’ve reviewed the only ones I know about, Orange Fizz, Golden Sand, Cosmic Violine and Mica Rose.

  21. All Lacquered Up says:

    Oh you mean those Tokyo colors? I don’t have details on them yet

  22. diann_co says:

    TEASE!! (LOL) Can’t wait to see, if I could only find barielle anywhere

  34. Plastic Cup of Stars says:

    I’d love to see a “behind-the-scenes” post on how they approached you, how the collaboration unfolded, and your specific inputs for the line. I also have my fingers crossed that this might turn into a lucrative career move for you. You’re a professional consultant, now!

  35. Tabatha says:

    Congrats :) That are wonderful news, I´m excited!
    But could you do something for your international readers? I know Barielle has an UK based website, but they don´t stock the nail polish shades *sigh*
