Barielle Pin Up

Ah, the start of another week! I always feel sluggish on Mondays, so I wanted to share a color that is energizing and vibrant. I settled on Barielle's Pin Up, a vivid tomato red with a shimmery finish.







Pin Up draws its inspiration from old hollywood glamour and the red lipstick that all pin up models wear. It is a vintage red that leans slightly warm due its subtle orange undertones. It is full of gold shimmers in the bottle, but once on the nail, the gold shimmers blend into the red polish, turning into a mellow reddish shimmer and warming up the color.

This is a super saturated polish, and color payoff is amazing. I only needed one coat for full opacity, though at one coat, the color on the nail is slightly pinker than in the bottle. I did two coats for the nail swatches to match the color on my nails to that in the bottle and to even everything out. Even though color payoff is superb, the formula isn't thick or goopy at all. It is buttery and flows easily onto the nail, making application a breeze.

You can find Pin Up on Barielle.com for $8 for 0.45oz, but there is an ongoing sale for buy one get one 50% off.

  1. Lovely colour but it would have been stunning if the gold shimmer translated to the nail :)

    1. The gold shimmer would have added something extra special, but I agree that it's lovely as is. :-)

  4. Wow this color sounds like a must, only pros! ^^ It's really beautiful, a shame that the shimmer does not show more on the nails. Anyhow, a pinup red is always a classis, you can't go wrong with it!
