Barielle Blackened Bleu

Barielle Blackened Bleu is a black base with a dense, rich teal shimmer. If you're a fan of "night sky" shades, then chances are you will love Blackened Bleu. It reminds me of the VHTF OPI Unripened, except I actually like Blackened Bleu better, because the shimmer is so much more noticeable and vibrant!

For such a dark shade, the formula was surprisingly sheer. I thought it'd be a two-coater but it took four in all to get Blackened Bleu completely opaque. One plus to the sheerer formula though is, as I mentioned above, the shimmer stays nice and bright and doesn't get swallowed up by the black base.

You can purchase Barielle from their website.

  1. Ooh this is pretty. I can't believe this is 4 coats!

    1. Thanks Traci! Yeah, I was really surprised by the sheerness of the formula. Very unusual to need so many coats with such a dark shade!
