Barielle Spring 2011 Karma Collection: Buddha-ful

Barielle Buddha-ful (1 coat) over 2 coats Color Club Pardon my French

Hey, how has your weekend been so far? I did some errands this afternoon and now I may watch some Downton Abbey until Saturday Night Live (I can't help it, Christoph Waltz is on!). You know, extremely exciting stuff. 

I've had Buddha-ful from Barielle for well over a year, but I've never posted it on the blog. I tried it as soon as I got it, and I wanted to make it opaque on its own, but it was a bit of a disaster. I think this one is best layered over other polishes, like I did here. It is a blue and green flakie in a light pink base. I opted to layer this over a color similar to its base, but I've seen people use it on darker colors as well. I've found the formula to be thick (like most Barielle polishes I've owned) and could use a little nail thinner. It's definitely not my favorite flakie polish, but if you don't have any of them, Buddha-ful could work in a pinch. You can find it at Transdesign
