Pink Week: Barielle Buddha-ful

After yesterday's deeper, darker pink I decided to swing around in the other direction and show off a pale but fiery shade that spent some time on my wish list before the beautiful Brandi was sweet enough to send it my way as a birthday gift. This is Barielle Buddha-ful, and it is amazing.

Barielle Buddha-ful swatch

Barielle Buddha-ful is a milky, jellied base of palest pink that's overflowing with brilliant, duochrome flakies that flash from light blue to light green. Just one generous coat over OPI My Very First Knockwurst, had me swooning! The undies lent it a little pinker hue overall, but they really are a great match.

With the help of the flakies, the milky base could probably build to opacity in 3 or 4 coats, and if you don't mind VNL, it can look very sweet with just a couple of coats on its own. Personally, I like it layered. And I love that while I'm more used to seeing flakies flaring over a darker base, the ones in Buddha-ful still dazzle over this light pink too.

Unfortunately my light box did absolutely no justice to this gorgeous polish, so these swatches are in natural light instead...but they still doesn't show the full extent of Buddha-ful's amazingness. It's definitely a see-to-believe! The combination of these little slivers of iridescent fire with the pale, pale pink was even prettier than I'd hoped and so much more lovely than I could capture. Thank you so much, Brandi--I love it! ♥

As you may know, this Pink Week has been a joint effort among several bloggers to promote breast cancer awareness. We felt that was more important that promoting our blogs, so we haven't included a list of links, but we have included a little information each day that has hopefully been food for thought.


There are healthy choices you can make that may help lower your risk of breast cancer, including exercising, limiting your alcohol intake, and maintaining a healthy weight.

  7. Very pretty! I saw a few bottles a while back. But it's not something I would wear often(maybe once) so I passes.
