Muffin Monday!! Barielle Blackened Bleu

Good Morning and happy Muffin Monday!

  It's been so long since Muffin has made an appearance around here, I figured it was time for her to come back. She picked me an AMAZING shade by Barielle. I just got this pretty not too long ago along with Two other shades by Barielle that I will be showing you soon.
 To see Muffin's pick in action keep reading after the jump.

 For this look I started with Three coats of Barielle Blackened Bleu. I then stamped using plate DRK-A, which I plan on telling you guys about soon. I've just been incredibly busy. Anywho, for the stamping I used Nfu.Oh #61 and topped it all off with some Seche Vite. I love the nice clean look of this manicure and the edgy bit the Holo dots add. I took the pics pre-top coat because the holographic effect is stronger that way.
Love love love!!!
Barielle Blackened Bleu
 This nail polish is stunning. I was fully prepared for the formula on Blackened Bleu to be horrific but it was actually pretty decent for being one of these notorious Blackened shades. It seems colors like these are not usually the easiest to work with. This amazing beauty is, you guessed it. a Blackened Blue shimmer. It has a lot of depth and a slight duochrome from Deep Blue to Deep Purple and some hints of Teal. In these pictures I have Three thin coats of color and no top coat. I'd like to wear this layered over a Black base next time.
I hope you enjoyed this Muffin Monday! I can't believe I went that long without doing a Muffin Monday :(:(! I will try to get better at it! I know a lot of you guys really love Miss Muffin <3!

Thanks for stopping by!
