Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots

   
   
     Hi Everyone! I wanted to share with you a little gem I found a few days ago - the Maybelline Color Show "Polka Dots" line! These are awesome! I'm not sure how new they are - I don't usually linger too long over the Color Show polishes, as I've only ever had one and was disappointed with it. But as I was scoping out the makeup aisle, this polish in Pretty in Polka really caught my eye! One of my go-to looks for my nails is to accent either my ring fingers, or my ring fingers and thumbs, with glitter or designs. When I saw this, I knew it would make the perfect accent! :) The polish itself is a very sheer pinky-purple, but the stars of the show are the little polka dots through out - they are just so darn cute! The dots are matte black and matte white, and they come in tiny circles, medium sized hexagons, and a few larger hexagons scattered through out.

     The formula of this polish is so easy to work with. I was able to get the look you see in the pictures with just one coat, and I didn't have to go fishing around, trying to place the dots just right. They just kinda naturally fell into place and looked great!
    
     If I remember right, I think there were four other shades in this line - there could be more, though. I remember a blue and a teal, which were beautiful, but probably not ones I'll pick up just because I tend not to wear those colors too much on my nails. There were two others that I definitely am going to get, one had little black and white dots, and another was browns, tans, and whites if I remember right. I think that one will be perfect for fall!
    
     I seriously am in love with this polish! Hopefully they all have the same beautiful formula as the one I have. If they do, they are well worth trying out in my opinion.

  3. I saw this at the store and didn't pick it up because I didn't think it would look that great, but your swatches have proved me wrong! This makes such a great accent!!
