Barielle is a brand that I’ve been using for ages to help strengthen my nails. I was a big fan of their pink heavy nail strengthener that came in a pot. I think their tagline used to talk about their products being crafted from ingredients used to strengthen race horses’ hooves. That always impressed me.
Well, things of changed over the years at Barielle. They now make so many nail strengthening products I can’t believe it. And nail polish in gorgeous, modern shades.
I received a wonderful representation of their products:
- Barielle Shades Nail Polish: 3 gorgeous shades of nail polish in just the kind of shades I’d pick for myself: Blossom (peach), Under The Sea (turquoise), Sheer Nonsense (grayed lavender)
- Protect Plus Color Nail Strengthener in Sheer Pink
- Nail Strengthener Cream
- Nourishing Nail Mask.
First, I love the fact that Barielle now has an option in a tube. So much easier and cleaner for me to use than the pot. I’ve been using the Nail Strengthener Cream at night and it’s been doing a wonderful job hydrating my nails and cuticles even though it says that full results will be seen in 3-4 weeks. What I also love about it is that it can be used over nail polish. The Strengthener Cream helps nail resist peeling, split or breaks. The 0.50 oz tube is priced at $10.
I also love love love the Protect Plus Color Nail Strengthener in Sheer Pink. It provides just the right amount of color as it strengthens my nails. It can be worn alone as I’m wearing it below. Or it can be worn over a base coat as a polish. It comes in two other shades in addition to the Sheer Pink that I’m wearing: Dark Pink and Beige/Nude. The Sheer Pink is very pale giving the nail the slightest bit of rosiness. Price $16.00. Here’s how Barielle describes it:
“Formulated with the unique ingredient Prosina™, a Keratin Peptide, which helps nails become stronger and more break resistant. This high viscosity formula will help provide a reinforced shield for maximum protection and durability, while giving your nails a beautiful splash of color.”
So far, I’ve worn Blossom from the Barielle Nail Shades collection. I think it’s one of the new shades for this season. In fact, you may recognize it as the nail color I was wearing for my St. Patrick’s Day look. I adore peach cream, so I could hardly wait to put this pretty shade on my nails. It wore for about 4 days with no chipping, and I wasn’t very good about putting on gloves when I washed the dishes. Not bad at all. The nail polish is salon strength with a long lasting finish. Priced at $8.
Here are the other two shades, Under the Sea and Sheer Nonsese that I haven’t tried yet. So pretty!
I haven’t tried the Nourishing Nail Mask yet so I’ll report back to you on that one. It looks like the perfect thing to try during an at home spa night. Just clean and dry the nails, put a mask on each finger, and wear them for 30-60 minutes. Enough time to watch a TV show and relax! Then remove and massage in the excess product. Done. Sounds easy and relaxing. Priced at $2.98.
