Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Polka Dots

The Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Polka Dots are a somewhat new addition to the Color Show line (ehh actually they've been out for a few months now, but it still says "new" on Maybelline's website). When they first came out a few months ago they were sold out everywhere I looked, but recently I found all of the shades at Walmart for $2.97 and I went with the shade Pretty in Polka 85.


This polish looks really unique! The color is really pretty, and I like the distribution of the polka dots too! The picture above makes the polish in the bottle look purple (honestly I wish it was purple), but my nails look more true to color. 

I was kind of surprised to see that this had sort of a jelly look, and the polish is pretty sheer. I don't have an issue with this though. I've found that it look best when I apply one thin coat and then apply another thicker coat to make sure I get a nice distribution of the dots. 



The only issue I have with this polish is that it chips a little easily. I can normally get 3-5 days of wear from nail polishes as long as I uses a top coat, but I noticed some chipping at the tips of my nails after the 2nd day of wearing this polish. I can forgive it for chipping though, because it is slightly easier to remove than glitter polish. Overall, I'm happy with this Color Show Polka Dots polish, and I'm definitely thinking about getting more shades, like Drops of Jade and Blue Marks the Spot!

  3. Never seen this polish before, it looks fun!

    I guess it depends a bit on different peoples too, but normally I can wear my nail polish for 1-2 weeks. But there are some cheaper nail polish that wear off faster for me...

    1. My more expensive brands definitely last longer too! I do use my hands a lot so that probably plays into the lasting power

    1. Which shades do you have? I have heard that the black and white one is really sheer. I'm wondering about the other ones too. I did have to put a thick second coat to make it show up better though

  6. I'm surprised at how good this look! When I first saw the bottles, I didn't think the combination of glitter and colors wouldn't translate well when painted.

    1. Same here! When I first saw them I kinda thought it looked like a granite counter top, but I think it looks pretty cool on the nails! haha
