Finally, More Greeeeeeen!: Barielle Shades Date Night

I’m a Barielle fan girl, so you can imagine my excitement when I read that Barielle would be launching a line of colors designed by Celebrity manicurist, Elle. And what an awesome new line it is, Elle has whipped up some truly incredible shades. So far, I’ve *loved* what I’ve seen on ALU and Scrangie. And for us girls who need to wear work-appropriate colors, Elle’s spring collection looks extremely promising as well (swatches coming soon).


Date Night is my first venture into the Shades line and I am completely, totally in love. The color is very well pigmented, perfect in two coats. My one criticism is that the polish dries extremely fast, which can be bittersweet. If you take too long to apply you might get a little bit of brush drag but it’s workable.  The color is SPOT ON – seriously, golf clap for Elle. The community has been clamoring for greens for a while, so it’s great that designers are finally starting to listen. This green is particularly beautiful. Dark, but not too dark, shimmery but not ‘cheap’  shimmery, perfect.

Girls have been spotting these polishes in CVS Drug Stores but you can also get them online at

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for review by Barielle Shades.

    i like the color. its pretty. maybe if it wasnt shimmery and had more of a jelly finish it would work well for a zulu franken

  3. Sminkan Says:

    I need it too! And I can’t get it either…. So unfair! it is like perfect green! I hate to look at it since I want it so bad and it is totally impossible to get. :´-(

    Yeah I love these also! I got Date Night, Misbehaving Mistress, Hidden Hideaway and Secret Encounter awhile ago and I really LOVE them all, the formula was really buttery.

  7. Brooke Says:

    I like the colors, but something about their bottle design/logo just scream the 80′s to me, it really turns me off from buying them. Stupid reason, I know, but I can’t help it. :)
    Is it just me irked by that shades logo pic?

  10. Jason Says:

    Intoxicating! One of the richest and most attractive greens I’ve seen in quite a while!

  11. Steph Says:

    Brooke – I have an immense aversion to the 80s too – so I feel you but the bottle design doesn’t bug me. lol.

    Kyosuke – : ) I hope she loves it.

    Sanna – I have to agree. Lol.

    Jason – Totally agreed!
