Maybelline Color Show Brocades Nail Enamel in Black n Mirrors and Emerald Elegance

I have two gloriously pretty shades to show you.

Behold! The magnificence that is Emerald Elegance!




Didn’t I tell you it was magnificent? 🙂

It’s a shimmer infused emerald green with chunkier hexagon-shaped green glitter.



Black n Mirrors:

In the spirit of L’Oreal The Queen’s Ambition, this one is a soft black shade with gold and silver chunky glitter.

Application on BnM was workable, but there was work. I found myself pushing glitter around on my nails to get it to spread evenly. With EE, it was a dream to work with! I had no trouble with application and was able to achieve a nice, even color with just two coats. I would say Emerald Elegance is a must-own, but Black n Mirrors is less covetable.

Both of these are limited edition, but I still see them in stores. Check your area to see if there are any left.

    Emerald Elegance is gorgeous! I’m hoping these make it to our shores at some point so I can try one or two out!

    I googled these polishes and immediately came here to look at them and didn’t realise I was talking to you about your own pics! Great polishes 🙂
