Maybelline Brocade Collection Color Show Nail Polishes in Gilded Rose and Amethyst Couture

Maybelline Brocade Collection Color Show Nail Polishes in Gilded Rose and Amethyst Couture 

As usual, Maybelline has come out with a holiday collection that would make any beauty-lover's mouth water. When I spotted the first display of polishes at my CVS, I was drawn like a moth to the flame and ended up buying the two that I could least resist from the Brocade collection: Gilded Rose and Amethyst Couture. At $3.99, resistance is futile.

Gilded Rose is a duo-chrome that consists of burnished gold shimmer and chunky metallic rose glitter. The consistency is thinner than many of the Maybelline polishes, including the holiday glitter polishes from last year, but it's easily layered to create an opaque finish that maintains the duochrome effect. Amethyst Couture is another duochrome with an emerald green shimmer base laced with deep purple glitter - very reminiscent of maleficent (my fave Disney villain). Unfortunately, this polish didn't live up to everything I expected. The consistency is thick to the point of making application difficult and it doesn't maintain the same complexity on the nail as it does in the bottle. Still, it makes for a nice deep purple on the nail, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to everyone.

Overall mixed feelings on my sampling of the nail polishes from the collection - have you tried them yet?
