Maybelline: Sapphire Stitch

I was running out of inspiration last week when I did a random dive into my nail polish collection and came out with something, well, completely random...

Sapphire Stitch was released as one of the shades in Maybelline's limited edition Brocades collection and as I'd enjoyed the previous few I'd worn from that collection (apart from the chipping!) I had high hopes for this one too.  In the bottle Sapphire Stitch is a dramatic black polish densely packed with silver and purple glitter and had the potential to be amazing...but it was impossible to apply smoothly.  The texture was extremely thick and gluey so it applied in thick globs and required a lot of care to get it to look somewhat decent.  Besides that I was underwhelmed with the finish - normally I'm a bit partial to textured polish but this was begging for a shiny topcoat because it looked dull and murky on its own so I did what was necessary.

I'll put this one down as one of my failed choices...

Until next time.

  3. You know I think I remember being disappointed by one of the shades from this line too - perhaps it was a dud range overall? Still loving your nail swatches though. Have you watched aLoveTart on YouTube? She has gotten me hooked into polish in the biggest way and I love her choices!

    1. OMG I LOVE Mary!!! She has single-handedly rekindled my love for nail polish and pretty manicures - I wish I had the time to change my nail polish several times a week because I want to after watching her videos :-))

      Glad I'm not the only one disappointed here - some of the other shades were so pretty but they would chip off in huge chunks :p
