Alright, about a month ago, I told you guys I'd show you Barielle Putt-e On Me by itself. I had used it as a base for ILNP Supernova as seen in this post and it worked great. I really love the color by itself too. It's a really flattering shade of taupe-y brown that works great for my skin tone. Two coats gave me excellent coverage.
The second swatch for this post is Barielle Buddha-ful. I remember this being all the rage a while back. It was one of the first "flakie" polishes. Now we're knee deep in flakies but I keep this one for sentimental reasons. The base is a very soft sheer pink. Think any one of a number of Essie polishes that look like this. The flakies are color shifting flakies that shift from a pale gold maybe? to a bright green. Most of the time the shifting happens when the light hits it from an angle. Seen head on the flakies almost seem to disappear. I have pretty prominent visible nail lines but I was kind of frustrated that even at three coats I really couldn't hide them that well from the camera. They were not quite that prominent in real life.
