I was on a stroll during my break from work and I didn't expect anything when I walked into the drugstore; I just wanted to kill some time after running a few errands. After buying The Twenty Two by Formula X I keep telling myself that I don't need to buy anymore nail polish - especially when I haven't even worn half of those minis yet (I actually only wore two of those polishes....) but when I saw Maybelline's new holiday collection (Brocades) my jaw dropped. I struggled and caved. I wasn't even sure if these Color Show nail polishes were any good but the little thing just looked too damn gorgeous to pass up and I don't regret it one bit. I may even consider going back to pick up one or two more and perhaps a back up of Lavishly Lilac.
Maybelline Lavishly Lilac is a phenomenal festive glitter polish. It is opaque in two coats and goes on streak free. It has larger hexgonal purple glitters with small purple, magenta, and turquoise glitter specs on a gold-silver shimmer base. All of these different coloured glitters put together gives this polish a multi-dimensional look and a duochrome looking effect. Under different angles, the glitters reflect off the light giving different colours. At times you will see it as a gold polish with purple glitters, other times a silver polish or as seen in the pictures above, an all over purple glitter polish. It's absolutely stunning and you can never capture a picture that is enough to give it justice. I swear, don't walk....run to get these limited edition polishes.
