This is Slate of Affairs, a gorgeous dark blue base with a flash of bright blue shimmer. I like the dusty quality that the base has because it makes the color just that much more unique. I also like the formula on this shade. It is thin, but easy to apply and control. I used 3 thin coats for these pictures.
Remember to click them for a closer look :D
So, for my first experience with Barielle Shades, I have to say I am very happy. The bottles are cute, I had no brush issues, and the formula was very nice. The best part, though, is that Slate of Affairs is just beautiful.
The only color I can think of that is similar to this is Jelly Jeans Queen. But on the nail, the Barielle pulls a touch more purple. So, I would rule these as not dupes. It is definitely good to have both :)
Have you tried Barielle Shades? Any favorites I should try?
