Today I have for you the Veils Collection from Maybelline. This collection consists of 5 polishes, 2 shimmers, and 3 glitters. Maybelline advertised this as a textured collection but I think those of us in the nail polish community can agree that these are nothing like the textured polishes we are used to. I guess you could say they have a slight texture because of the glitters, but nothing more than a typical glitter polish. All polishes are shown with 2 coats over a base color and without top coat.
Crystal Disguise is a milky based polish with teal and blue shimmer. I've layered it over OPI 4 in The Morning.
The application was smooth and easy. Each coat packed a ton of shimmer.
Rose Mirage is a clear polish with rose gold colored micro glitter. I chose to layer it over Pretty & Polished Carrigan.
Application with this one was a little tricky. I was able to get semi decent glitter coverage if I used very light brush strokes. I think the dabbing method would have worked out better. I didn't have to fish for glitters, but they did want to slide around on the nail.
Blue Glaze is a dusty blue micro shimmer polish. I layered this one over OPI 4 in The Morning.
The application was again smooth with a lot of shimmer in each coat. I like how this has an almost icy look to it on the nail.
Amethyst Aura is a clear base polish with dark blue circle glitter and light blue micro shimmer. I layered this one over JulieG Santorini.
The application was easy with this one. No playing around with the glitters was required to get nice even coverage. Although I do have to say when I hear the word Amethyst I think of purple and not blue. So the name is slightly confusing to me.
Teal Beam has blue and gold micro glitters in a clear base. I chose to layer it over JulieG Tahiti.
The application was really good with this one. I was able to get even glitter coverage without fishing or dabbing.
Overall I like this collection of nail polish toppers. There were no application issues, and the colors seem to go well with a variety of base colors. I don't know if I have a favorite but Rose Mirage and Blue Glaze are up there at the top of the list. Do you have any favorites from this collection?
I picked this collection up at Wal-Mart but have come across them wherever Maybelline nail polishes are sold. I didn't see limited edition anywhere on the display or online, but I'm not sure if they are going to be part of the core line. If I find out for sure I will update this post. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
