    Not my top choice but not bad colors

    I have a few colors in this line and I have to say over all I haven't been very impressed by the colors. The polish is cheap ( $3 at Walmart) and the selection is decent ( a lot of different, very pretty colors) to choose from. What I have a problem with is some of the colors are very sheer, requiring 3+ coats to get the color close to the way it looks in the bottle and some colors remain sheer moreter that many coats. I do have to admit though my favorite glitter polish ( and I have stated in other reviews I normally do not care for glitter polish with big chunks of glitter) I own is 305 Gilded Rose in this line. Its a gold glittery base with rose gold pieces of glitter. To get a good amount of color and glitter I only needed to put 2 coats of polish on. The concept is there, Maybelline offers such beautiful colors in a wide variety, they are easy on the wallet ( as previously stated $3 at Walmart but they can be cheaper depending on the color and where you go) and for the colors that aren't sheer they don't chip easily but the biggest con in my book is the amount of colors that shouldn't be sheer are. I am not opposed to sheer polish by any means but the colors look like they were mixed with too much water. And these colors are vibrant blues and purples and deep reds. I usually see sheer colors in soft, pastels. I will continue to give this line a shot since some of my favorite polishes are by Maybelline but I won't get my hopes too high since the odds aren't too high in finding a good pigmented color in this line. If my thoughts change I wll for sure edit this review though — 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Pretty disappointed with this nail polish - I got 2 colors, Born With It which is a pale pink and another one which is a light apricot coral. I have found both polishes to have the same problem - they do not layer well and they are kind of transparent. My nails underneath look like they have weird horizontal ridges when I put this on. For drugstore polish I'd say Sally Hansen or Revlon are way better. This polish just doesn't cut it with quality, though the colors are pretty nice. — 4 months, 4 weeks ago

    Love It

    I absolutely love these nail lacquers! They go on easy and thick but not too thick and they leave a gelish shine. With most of the dark colors I only need one coat with the lighter ones usually 2. The color last for more than a week for me and I am rough with my nails so it really saves me time and money! — 2 years, 3 months ago

    I love light nails but find it hard to get most to show up well and decided to try both the porcelain party and born with it. The porcelain party is a sheer white and the born with it a very light pink which actually showed really well but left streaks no matter how much I tried to get them not too, also it seemed really thin while I was using them but dried really thick which in turn lead to the moreproblem of chipping. I don't hate this product and will most likely use the two I have but I do not see myself buying anymore. — 2 years, 8 months ago
