Maybelline Colour Show Brocades // Rosy Rosettes Review

I've been pretty good lately avoiding buying any beauty products this past month so that I will be able to fully enjoy the receiving of gifts on Christmas Day and of course because money has been spent on presents for others. 

That said when I saw the Brocade range from Maybelline on a 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug last week I decided to treat myself. The shade I was most excited about was Rosy Rosettes as I had a vision for it painted over Essie Blanc. Unfortunately I didn't realise it wasn't a clear polish and was actually a full on colour as you can see below.

Luckily I favour a red nail so I went to town and painted all over my nails and loved it's pinkish red tone. It didn't feel too intrusive as glitters sometimes can be and I wonder if it is a stretch to call this a sophisticated glitter?

The only downside I found with this product was that it chipped really badly. Usually glitter on your nails are there for life (or so it seems) and of course when I came to remove the remainder of the colour I found I had to scrap some of it off as it wouldn't budge  but that aside this is a great addition to the festive wardrobe.

I've yet to try the gold and silver shades although they're next on the list for this week but I'm not looking forward to removing it. And since looking online I'm lusting for the blue version.

What are your festive shades featuring on your nails this week?

  2. That's gorgeous, but as you say - I bet it's hideous to take off, there's nothing that causes me more grief!! x


  3. Love the colour, maybe use a thick undercoat so it comes off better? I hate when polish doesn't come off easily!

  4. Hi, I was looking at these in Boots today who also have 3 for two on Maybelline products plus a free Babylips lip balm (limited edition) I think. I almost succumbed as my daughter loves the Babylips but managed to resist. Looking at the red one I wish I'd treated myself.

  5. I've never been a fan of glitter polishes, but these look promising! Thanks for sharing!
