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! :)
Haha, you just had to end on a funny note! :D Love this one too! Gosh, I don't think there's one in the collection that I don't like. That will make it hard to figure out which ones to buy. :)ReplyDelete
I know...that's why I want ALLLL of them! :D I'm really fascinated with Amethyst Couture. It's highly unusual in person. These only run $3.99 too, which helps. :DDelete
I need to find these! Love!ReplyDelete
Good luck! They are so beautiful! <3Delete
This collection has been the only one that's got me this excited in awhile! Unfortunately, no Princesses-R-Us in my neck of the woods :^\ReplyDelete
Good...we need fewer princess things around. :P Try Rite Aid instead!! I'm with you...it seems extra special when a collection comes out that's actually memorable.Delete
Another beaut! I can see why you're fascinated with these. I can't choose between the two you've shown-- I adore red and I've been really loving rise gold lately. Brian has good taste ;) Both are stunning on you.ReplyDelete
I wish the photos would have captured just how much these polishes gleam. Gilded Rose looks like gold lame on the nail. :) And thank you dear. <3Delete
This is really pretty! I love the pink and the gold.ReplyDelete
Me too!! The lilac one is similar to this one and just as pretty!Delete
I keep hearing that these chip badly, but now I'm encouraged to try for myself :)ReplyDelete
I wore this mani for 2 full days without chips...and things tend to chip badly on me. Maybe it's my body chemistry?Delete
