Cheap price and it shows..
Was looking for something bright so I saw this orange and then saw it was only 2.99 at target so I had to grab it. First impressions on bottle was nice and compact. Then when I got home I applied my usual base coat and ended up needing 3 heavy coats of the color for any good color pay off.. It also dried matte so I had to grab my shiniest top coat to make them look even decent. I'm going to try them tomorrow at work and see how they do but I feel like already it's way too many coats and too much polish and might be taking this off sooner then later.. Boo was hoping this was going to be a good find. :-/ did dry pretty fast tho
Vintage Leather- Antique Teal
First time ever using a Maybelline nail color and I'm quite impressed. The Vintage Leather collection dries down to matte finish and dries quickly. After one coat its quite opaque. I applied two then a clear coat. For $3.99 a bottle I will definitely pick up more shades from this line.Love,love,love!!
Worth the money!
I was desperate for a black and saw this brand so i thought i would give it a go and i am very glad i did. A lot of people say this nail varnish needs lots of coats, i didn't have this problem but it might of been because i had black? I think for how much you pay, its perfectly fine. Would recommend this to a friend!

I dont know why most girls dont like it. I am in love with these polishes. They last for about 4 days without chipping and with top or base coat 5 - 6 days. I think thats amazing for the price as well. I also think that if you dont feel like putting two coats you can get away with one. The only thing is that I think they should come out with more original colors even do I love the ones that are already out. I own 6 colors but I want to pick up some more as well ;)
Takes a few good coats
I purchased Bold Gold, Wine and Dine, and the Cracked black polish. The winner of those was Bold Gold, which was a perfect gold color that applied well and looked vibrant on the nails. Wine and Dine was a close second, but took at least two coats or more to look solid. A little streaky as well. Unfortunately the Cracked black polish was a POS to put it nicely. Used it over a painted nail and it just made it black. Chunked it in the trash after a couple more tries with different polish and then no polish at all. Even put acetone in it as a last ditch effort and it STILL didn't work. So I'd say there is a huge variance between the different shades and its a gamble. They dry quickly. A cheap alternative, but you get what you pay for.
Not worth it!
I bought this in Navy Narcissist and I wish I hadn't. It dried way too fast! I couldn't get a 2nd stroke on top of the one I had without it get clumpy like it does when it's starting to dry. I wanted to use it for an event I was going to and after trying to do both my hands just gave up and after realizing that a 2nd coat wouldn't fix it went to the nail salon.
I received the entire collection as a gift, and it was okay.. but it needs improvement. My favorite shades are Shocking Seas (which isn't listed on here) and Tenacious Teal. Anyway, the formula is thin, so it takes a few coats to achieve full coverage. However, the colors are pretty. I just wish it lasted longer than a few days before it chips. Aside from that, the crackle polishes barely do anything. It cracks a bit here and there, but nothing too exciting.
Great colors Great price!
I loved the color range and the price was somewhat fair depending on where I shopped for these. The color didn't last but maybe 4 days though and that was disappointing for me. I have a teal and a purple. The teal is called GREEN WITH ENVY!!! not tenacious teal someone needs to correct that!!!
I love the formula but it took a long time to take off. But for a drugstore polish it was very good, but depending on the color you have to do more than one coat. But then of course it takes longer to take off.
