Birthday Manicure: Barielle Nail Lacquer in Myrza's Meadow

My Barielle order containing all 6 new shades of their Spring 2010 collection finally arrived, together with their amazing Natural Nail Camouflage, an anti-aging ridge filler and base coat. It is a bit expensive for $16, but then Barielle had their 15% off sale with free shipping for orders over $50. Also, their nail lacquers were Buy 2, Get 1 Free.

I tried two of them, namely Darling Dahlia and Myrza's Meadow. Here's what Darling Dahlia looked when I wore it on a girls' night out to celebrate my birthay:

It was Konaded using Konad special polish in Black. I honestly didn't like Darling Dahlia. The jelly formula is very streaky and I usually am not a fan of jellies and how the finish looks like after it dries.

For my birthday dinner with the family, though, I used Myrza's Meadow and I liked it a LOT better than Darling Dahlia. It is a beautiful lime green with silver sparkles. What I liked about it was that the glitters were quite small, not chunky at all and very unobtrusive, and yet it gives a subtle shimmer that is very pretty:

Here's how it looks like during dinner:

Eeek, sorry for the flyaway!
