Hey everybody! Look! I managed to take off my beloved Ruby Refined. It was hard, considering how lovely it was...and it didn't even match my outfit today, so that's really saying a lot. :) So, as promised, I have for your enjoyment my other purchase from the Maybelline Color Show Brocades collection: Gilded Rose.
I just fell in love with this little number when I saw it...even my hubby chose this as his 2nd favorite (after Ruby Refined). It's girly and ethereal and fairytale princess-esque.
Gilded Rose is, as you can see, quite gilded. It's a very reflective metallic gold loaded with pale pink glitter.
The combination of pale pink and gold feels almost antique...but it's so GOLD that I don't think the Victorians were quite this ostentatious. :D
I applied three coats of Gilded Rose because I could see some visible nail line with two, and I wanted you all to experience that fancy wrapping paper effect these Brocades have! I only used one coat of top coat...but I'm thinking I'll slap on another before I head to the office tomorrow...
So...do you agree with me that the Maybelline Color Show Brocades are pretty special? I thought so!! I purchased my Brocades at Rite Aid, but I'm not sure where else they are available. Maybe Princesses-R-Us? :P
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)
