Maybelline - Sapphire Masquerade

How bout one more post for today?  First of all, let me just say these pictures are not color accurate.  I could not get my camera to capture the true color of this polish.  Even though this polish is called Sapphire Masquerade, but it is actually a bright, royal purple.  Not blue.  It has large fuchsia hex glitter mixed in.


I actually applied a base coat of a pink cream thinking this polish would be sheer, but as you can see, it is not.  Now, lets talk about the formula.  The formula sucks big time.  This was like applying chunky, half dry, glue.  It was horrid!  I applied a second coat to level out the first coat, so I squeezed a shit ton of thinner, and it made it much easier to work with.  I also have to mention that the brush is ridiculously skinny.


But, I quite like the end result.  And please remember, this is bright purple!

  1. It's super pretty. It seems like no one ever complains when polishes are a pain in the butt (or maybe I just have horrible luck), and they're always super complimentary. I love seeing a little negative commentary here and there, so you totally made my day. :)

  2. I like this glitter a lot. Reminds me of an indie glitter. :) I HATE when they have that thick formula.

  3. This is amazingly gorgeous! So sorry it was a bear to work with... It looks like the result is worth it, though! What a stunner. :)

  4. I do think it was worth it, just for the sparkle alone!

  6. I try to be honest about how a polish is. Most likely if I didn't comment on how it was to apply, thats cause it was easy. I almost always remember the polishes with the horrible application.

  7. Not that they did it that well (as evidenced by the formula on this one) but it's funny to see them trying to appeal to that market.

  8. WOW this is just way too beautiful! I am wearing a similar violet blue on my nails (a Bourjois one) now, but that nailpolish looks so nice with the glitters!
