Maybelline Brocades Rosy Rosettes

Hello my lovelies! I've been a lazy blogger in the last few days, but at least Christmas was nice and I feel very rested now. The polish I'm showing you today was my actual Christmas manicure that I wore from Christmas Eve to yesterday. You all know that I'm not a big fan of red, pink or gold, yet this polish kept me entertained for 3 days and it had all those colors so it must be something special.

The Color Show Brocades collection from Maybelline isn't available over here. So when I went on my trip at the beginning of the month and saw these in the store I was amazed by how beautiful they were. It seems there are different colors available in each country and there are even different names for them in Europe and USA. The ones I found were a blue one (Beaming Blue) and this red/pink one called Rosy Rosettes. Apparently the US version of this is called Ruby Refined. Why they have two names for the same polish is beyond me.

What's great about these polishes is how complex they are. When it's really hard to describe the color and finish of a polish is when you know it's a good one. Rosy Rosettes is a pinkish red base with different sizes of pink glitter and gold shimmer. It came out a little orange in pictures so I had to alter them to make them look more accurate.

I enjoyed the formula of this polish although it probably needs 3 coats to be opaque. My nails were very long and I didn't want to have any visible nail line so I layered two coats of this over one coat of Farmec 29 (review coming soon). Because it contains a lot of glitter, I used the foil method to remove it. I quite enjoyed wearing this polish and can't wait to try the blue Brocades one now that the holidays are over. My only regret is that I don't live in the US so I can get my hands on the beauties that are only available there.
