The final two shades I have for you are both reds, one a shimmer, one a very fine glitter, and both beautiful. Pin Up is defined by Barielle as a tomato red shimmer and that is accurate. The shimmer is gold and appears as a delicate veil over the color once applied on the nail. In natural lighting, full sunlight or with a flash, it remains a true tomato red. It reminded me of Color Club's Velvet Rope or QRS's Russian Red not so much for an exact shade match (because it's not), but because of the way the gold shimmer looks in both the bottle and on the nail. Not anything terribly unique, but a pretty shade regardless. I've always loved tomato red polishes that retain their color in any lighting, so I'm pleased with this one for that reason.
Glammed Out Garnet is a fancier red, a deep rich garnet hue sprinkled with matching shimmer. The shimmer is red, although it shows up somewhat gold in certain photos. It is officially described as "ruby on ruby sparkle", and sparkle it does. The glitter is tiny, but abundant in this shade and is evident indoors in almost any lighting. I would say that the shade itself is a very deep blood red shade in natural indoor lighting, and almost a dark cherry or dark ruby red outdoors. Naturally, the shimmer comes to life in the sun. I think the name is very fitting, because it is indeed a glamorous shade.
My closing thoughts on this collection (scroll down over the last couple of days if you missed any of the posts, and you'll find the entire collection swatched) are that it's an exceptional range of shades and finishes. The application was near perfect on every one of them (2 coats), the drying time average, the degree of glossiness in the finish was very high, and the majority of these polishes were really quite unique in shade and or finish. It's a large collection (12 shades), and very seldom do I find a collection this big with this many 'winners' in it. A final reminder to scroll through my previous posts, as these polishes are not only buy 2 get 1 free, but there are codes in the posts that allow you to get an additional 35% off. Barielle also offers free shipping at $50.00. I hope you enjoyed these, because I certainly enjoyed using each and every one of them!
