Twinsie Tuesday: Barielle Elle's Spell

February is American Heart Month for heart disease awareness, so in recognition of that, all of the Twinsies are sporting red manicures for today's Twinsie Tuesday. Now, I don't necessarily dislike red polish but it's not something I reach for super often. There are too many fun glitters and crazy colors to play with instead! However, I recently got the chance to try out an awesome red that I thought would be perfect for this theme: Barielle Elle's Spell!

Elle's Spell is a rich red jelly filled with iridescent flakes that flash everything from orange to yellow to green as they bathe in the light. This is one of Barielle's most famous polishes and it's easy to see why! The flakies have a very strong shift to them that, when coupled with the red base, is nothing short of magical.

The flakes spread evenly across the nail with no dabbling or placing required. I did give myself a little extra drying time between coats though. I used four here but you could easily get away with three if you're not as picky about VNL as I am. It's rare for me to wear a red polish for three whole days but that's exactly what I did with Elle's Spell! It's such a stunner and I wasn't even remotely tired of it by the time I finally did take it off.

You can purchase Barielle from their website. And if you're in the mood for more beautiful reds, be sure to head on over to my Twinsies' blogs!

  1. I love the flakies. If we had a bit more sun over here I'd never take that polish off :P It's beautiful. Shame about the amount of coats you need to cover VNL but at least you can layer it.

  2. This is gorgeous! It's been on my wish list for quite some time. It's such a pretty polish and it seems like you could create so many beautiful manis with it.

  3. Stunner is right--it looks like jellied flames! (^_^)

  4. This is such a pretty shade. I own it and always forget about it, but obviously I should wear it some more!!

  5. I really need to pull out my bottle of this one! hosh...Its Gorgeous!

  6. This was one of my first Barielles. It looks really good over pink too.

  7. Beautiful sparkly polish!!!!!! Loving it! Even though I don't usually gravitate to reds either. :)

  8. One of my Barielle faves!!! Looks gorgeous on you!

  9. I have been lusting over this one for so long!

  10. Beautiful! Love the flakies in this!
