I love Maybelline products ,I know a lot of Ladies call it low end make up,but in my opinion it's amazing and so affordable. Why break the bank if you don't have to.This polish goes on evenly, dries fairly quickly and has a nice shine.I like that it can last up to seven days without chipping or fading,thats good enough for me

I love it! So easy to apply, I can do only one coat and color you will get still is going to be rich and look nice. Last a while.

I have this polish in 282 "rose cancan". It applies smoothly and wears well. The brush doesn't streak and has a rounded shape at the end, which helps with more precise application. This particular color turned out to be darker than I expected, but I would definitely re-buy this in another color as the formula is excellent.

Hey, so I've bought and tried Maybelline Salon Expert in Rouge Passion and I gotta say: I love it!. It is EXTREMELY easy to apply. It's not like those other nail polishes where you mess up and gotta redo. Instead, if the nail lacquer is still somewhat wet, just fill in the spot and voila! it's fixed. it automatically blends in with the other half-dried ones. It's awesome! The color doesn't hurt your eyes and the smell's not too bad either.It's thin, but not watery thin, so that's good. And so, I recommend it. There's plenty of colours, so feel free!

I think I have the new brushes, because it's easy to apply for me.

I usually love Maybelline's products but this one, I have to say, is a major disappointment. I bought it in hopes it would be similar to their previous "Salon Expert" years ago that was the most incredible nail polish for it's price. But this is horrible.

I don't really notice much of a difference between the style brush this has vs. any other nail polish brush so no issues there. But the polish itself seems impossible. No matter what I do I can't get a smooth, even application. It streaks like crazy and if just getting one coat on to look decent isn't enough trouble, trying to paint on a second coat for a bit more color payoff is near impossible. It seems like the second coat of color wants to pull the first coat off - not pretty! I've never had such a hard time painting my nails. It seems like maybe the polish is just a bit too thick, perhaps a little polish tinner added to the bottle would help. I don't know.

The only good things I can think are it does dry fairly quickly; and at least it doesn't cost too much so I'm not out a lot of money for having tried it out. The color I got (Champagne Shimmer) is gorgeous but I'm honestly not sure I'll bother to use it too often; it feels like such a hassle to apply.

But bottom line - some very, very pretty colors in this line. But the quality of the product isn't worth it!

I bought this in Sparkle Brown (#602). I've only used it once, but I have to say I hate the brush. I don't know, maybe I'm some type of nail polish prodigy but I really never had any problem doing my nails with the regular brushes; but now between this and OPI's oversized brush it's becoming a real pain. This brush keeps spreading in two as I drag it up my nail so that I end up with the two sides of my nail polished and a big bare strip in the middle. The polish itself is streaky but at least it dries quickly. Doubt I'll buy this brand again, there are too many other non-annoying polishes out there.
