Barielle Me Couture Fall 2014 - Swatches, Review & Nail Art

Hello, all! I've got swatches of the latest Barielle Fall collection, Me Couture, to share with you today! I'm basically smitten with this collection. I love every single shade and think it's one of my favorite fall collections this year. But I'll quit gushing for a moment and let you take a look and see what you think ;) 
Taupe Notch
I am just in love with this shade. If I had to wear this all fall and winter long, I probably wouldn't complain. Taupe Notch is a dark taupe that in indirect light has almost purple undertones to it, but also the expected grey/brown you'd expect from a taupe shade. The formula was spot on (as I now expect from Barielle) and shown is 2 coats with top coat. 
Berry Posh the perfect fall pink. It's a dusty, deep fuchsia and I can see myself actually wearing this one this season. The formula was amazing and shown is 3 coats, though 2 would have been just fine. The more coats I applied, the deeper the color got so I'm glad I went with the 3 coats.
This is a dark indigo blue, that almost looks like a dark purple with the first coat. This one had a thinner formula like Soho at Night, but was still very easy to work with. This one is almost black when not in direct light so definitely a vampy shade. Shown is 3 coats and top coat. 
Soho at Night is a lovely dusty deep grape purple creme. This is another great fall shade. This one's formula was a little bit thin compared to the others, but 3 coats managed to reach opacity just fine and it was still quite easy to work with. 
Oh man, this is one of my favorites of this collection. And that's saying a lot because I'm gushing over this entire collection. Boho Chic is a dark teal to hunter green and it's just stunning. This is so very 'fall' to me. Just flawless. Great formula, 2 coats and top coat. 
A dusty rusty rose creme, vintage gown is a super unique shade and I love it. I definitely don't have anything like this in my collection and it's just lovely. It the bottle there is a coppery shimmer, but it really doesn't show up on the nail. Great formula, 2 coats and top coat. 
I also ended up doing nail art with this collection! I did a new take on one of my all time favorite manis, this inspired by a song look.  I did a gradient of Vintage Gown, Taupe Notch and Moda Bleu and then added in the cactii silhouttes and starts. I just love how this look turned out! I grew up visiting my great-grandparents where they lived in the desert, so desert scenes always being back great memories for me. 
Overall, I am just in love with this collection. Like, filling out the marriage license in love. I love fall shades more than anything and this is just about as perfect a fall collection as can be. All of the colors seem really unique to me and the formulas are all great to work with. I would definitely recommend this collection for lovers of Fall polish shades :)
