maybelline colour show polka dots nail polish


I've been patiently waiting for these polishes since their initial release in the UK. That has to be one of the more frustrating aspects of blogging- seeing products from other countries you really want but can't get. Urg. But, the wait is over, and I'm a very happy camper. Actually, I'm not that big a fan of camping.... I'm a very happy polisher!

Maybelline Colour Show Polka Dots- Drops of Jade, Blue Marks the Spot and Clearly Spotted  7ml $3.99


Drops of Jade has a teal-y green semi-sheer jelly like base that is packed with black and white round and hex glitter of various sizes. Two coats.


Blue Marks the Spotted has a cornflower-like blue with a semi-sheer jelly like base with black and white round and hex glitter of various sizes. Two coats.

Both of the shades with coloured bases are best applied using a dabbing motion as opposed to the typical brushing technique since there is a lot of glitter in these and you'll end up just dragging it off. I haven't shown these with topcoat, but you'll definitely want one as these do have a bit of an uneven  texture (thanks, glitter) and dry to a semi-matte.


Clearly Spotted has a clear base that is packed with the same black and white round and hex glitter found in the other shades. This was the polish I was most excited for as it has so many possibilities. This is a really great topper because there is a ton of glitter in it so you don't have to apply multiple coats. Shown is one coat over OPI Steady as She Rose. I love it!

Overall, you really can't go wrong with these! There are two other shades available- Dotty, which has an orange base and Pretty in Polka, which has a pink base. Have you tried these yet?
