Monday Blues: Maybelline Brocades Beaming Blue

Hello my lovelies! Did this weekend fly by or what? I didn't even manage to stay up late, that's how old I am. If you are bummed about today, let me just wash away your Monday Blues with a beautiful glitter. After showing you Rosy Rosettes a few weeks ago, it was high time for me to post about my other fabulous pick from the Maybelline Brocades collection. Technically, I didn't pick these because they were the only ones available but still, I think I was lucky to find them. Anyway, on to the blue!

As I've told you before, I love the complexity of these polishes. They are very hard to describe because there's a lot going on. This one consists of a blue base that is packed with blue and gold shimmer. Added to that there are bright blue pieces of hex glitter with the perfect size to sit nicely on the nail and not lift up or hang on the edges.

I was pleasantly surprised by how easy this was to apply. There was no fishing or placing required, and two medium coats were enough to make it opaque. I only used one coat of top coat and it would have needed a second one to be completely smooth but I don't really care about that. I'm sure this needs the foil method for removal in case you don't use a peel-off base coat like I did.

The Maybelline Brocades are definitely winners in my book and I'm glad I snatched a couple for myself. Of course I would need more and I'm sad that these aren't available in my country. Don't forget that you can check out some more blues in the links below! 




Have a great week!

  4. Yeah the ones I've seen are all amazing. It's a pity that this collection didn't get more attention.

  5. Maybe you can still find them. They are still available in Europe so I'm not sure if they're LE.
