Everyone knows that Barielle is all about gorgeous nails. Over the past 30 years, the company has made its mark with a unique approach to nail treatment and protection. They use safe, natural ingredients like Keratin, Protein, Vitamins and Plant Extracts (you wont find formaldehyde or other irritants in their products). The line even boasts an amazing deodorizing foot spray gel that cools and energizes feet while eliminating odor, because they know a girl can’t go around with stanky feet!
Of course, with all the attention to pretty toes and fingers, color is essential. Just this year, Barielle released their first comprehensive color line, Shades by Barielle. With a philosophy that “there’s nothing more positive than a product that lets you look and feel good,” the collection, which includes 22 fabulously fashionable colors, was created with a vibe of “Positive Emotion,” your own personal digital mojo. Now you can literally color yourself happy with shades like Elated – a deep coral, Ecstasy – a fire engine red, Blissful – a sheer beige or any of the other 19 rockin feel-good shades.
Shades by Barielle is also enriched with vitamins that treat your nails while providing gorgeous full coverage color and a glossy finish.
