Barielle Buddha-ful

I took tons of pictures of the gorgeous Barielle Buddha-ful from their Karma Collection. I've never used Barielle polishes before & they graciously sent me a few to try out. Buddha-ful is completely unique, something that can't be said very often these days! Its a soft beige jelly loaded with flakies that flash from aquamarine foil to pale pink. I like it so much that I've already worn it twice!
I used 3 fairly thick coats. I recommend waiting for each coat to dry a bit before applying the next one. The formula applies very nicely but flakies are by nature a bit thick to keep the flakes properly suspended and that just requires a little drying time. Buddha-ful is is definitely worth a couple of extra minutes for this pretty polish.
I love polishes like this that could be mistaken for a nice but plain work sfae polish. Then you get up close and magic! I can't wait to try this as a layering polish. I bet it will be fabulous over hot pink or maybe royal blue.
You can see my photos of Barielle Soul-er Powered from the same collection here.

Thanks for reading!

This polish was sent to me for review. All opinions are my own & were not influenced by Barielle! For more information you can read my disclosure policy.


  1. I really love this polish! Moreover, it is work appropriate. Unfortunately it is very difficult to find (and buy) Barielle in my country, they have just started the distribution o their products.

  2. just ordered this one, can't wait, great pics!

  3. I love the "hidden magic" too! :)
