I spotted the Maybelline Brocades in a CVS recently, and snapped up three bottles posthaste. This manicure layers Embelleshed Blues (dark blue) and Beaming Blue (light blue) over Zoya's Neve, a gorgeous purple-leaning blue.
The Brocades can lean a little lumpy if they're more than one coat, but with the layering over a base color they smooth out beautifully with a layer of topcoat.
The shimmer in Embelleshed Blues has a GORGEOUS green flash to it, and Beaming Blue is a light blue/purplish pink duochrome. Both have larger blue glitters as well, giving these polishes quite an effect in a single bottle.
