Barielle Slate of Affairs

Barielle Slate of Affairs is an incredibly rich slate blue with very subtle blue shimmer. I absolutely love these greyed out type shades. They just feel so classy and chic to me. 

The shimmer isn't super evident on the nail, but I can see just a hint of shimmer. It does add depth to the polish though, rather than just being a flat creme (not hating on cremes, I love them too!).

The formula was good, though a bit on the thin side. I probably could have gotten away with two coats if I'd been in a hurry, but since I wasn't in a hurry and I wanted to make sure it would look good in the pics, I did three. Dry time was good, even with three coats.

I took a couple of pics with flash to try to capture the shimmer.

And then a couple in direct sun.

It's absolutely lovely. If you like blues or greyed out shades, I'd say this is a must have. =)
