Barielle - Rain in Spain

This is a fairly unique shade to my collection. I wanted to stamp over it but ended up liking it too much as a solid color to do so.

Walmart
COMMENTS:
I was a little disappointed when I first purchased this that it required two coats to become opaque. The color more than makes up for it though, it's a gorgeous shade on me - and so shiny without topcoat (first two photos)!

Another lovely red from Barielle.  I have a thing for white and red together so of course I ended up stamping in white.

This was a decent-coverage suspended glitter polish. It was difficult to capture the gold sparkle on camera, so the photos are unfortunately underwhelming.

There's nothing like a nice 1-coat white polish to serve as a base for some quick stamping.

In spite of being sheer, this is quite a pretty polish, and I enjoyed wearing it. I actually didn't mind having to put on a third coat, haha.

Another one I've worn before. Love it on my toenails, but prefer the almost identical Essence Better Late than Never for my fingernails.
