Maybelline Brocades - Knitted Gold


Hi lovelies!

I have a swatch of another great polish for you!
In one of my (many) recent polish hauls I got Knitted Gold from the Maybelline New York Brocades Collection. I had seen some gorgeous swatches of this polish and it was on my wishlist for some time now, until I finally spotted it!


Knitted Gold is a very sheer polish. It has an amazing golden shine and is packed with tiny light pink glitters. Absolutely gorgeous. I decided to pair it up with Muchi, Muchi because this light pink Essie polish seemed fitting.


I wasn't entirely able to capture the amazing gold shimmer of this polish, to my regrets. I took about a million pictures (okay, that's maybe a small exaggeration) but the absolute gorgeousness got lost a bit in every one...
I mean, you can of course see the gold shimmer in the pictures here, but from certain angles the pink polish underneath is just not visible anymore because the entire nail is gold shimmer - which is what I couldn't capture on camera.

I hope you'll forgive me, and next time I'm wearing this great polish I'll definitely try to capture its magnificence better! Thanks for reading!

I got this one too, but wasn't very fond of it. It was to sheer for me I think. But the color combi you chose is great. Maybe this whole "Brocade" Collection thingy isn't something for me =)

Maybe it's something you have to be into I guess :) I just loooove glitters and sparkles so I couldn't resist buying this one!

I love glitters and sparkles too, that's the reason I bought it =) Maybe I give this one a second chance on a dark polish.
But I'm curious: Do you get this one recently? Because I bought mine months ago...

I bought this one about a month ago, I was looking all over for it and finally found it by chance. I know it's been out for quite long, but I just couldn't find it until now :) My country is apparently always behind on polish releases, the Gwen Stefani collection was also only released in March instead of in January :)
