review: maybelline colour show polka dot nail varnish.

Recently, I went on a little shopping spree. I just can’t resist popping into a shop if I’m passing by, even though I should be saving money as I’m off to IBIZA in less than six weeks. I decided to have a snoop in Superdrug and headed straight to the beauty aisle (of course). I wanted to find a new funky nail varnish to wear for a night out and I came across Maybelline’s Colour Show Polka Dot Nail Varnish – try saying that when you’ve had a few drinks!

The packaging draws you to the product, as most girls can’t resist a pretty sparkly nail polish! It comes in a variety of cute colours such as pink, green, black, white and navy, and I opted for the navy shade as I wanted something different from my usual colour choices. I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out and the first thing I did was remove my existing nail varnish and paint my nails. The brush is quite thick and wide and this made the application easy and quick, something that I look for in a nail varnish. The first coat gives a very light coverage and I was slightly disappointed as I had hoped it would come out looking glittery and bright. However, after just one more coat you are left with a funky, bright polka dot effect that dries almost instantly – another bonus in my book! I just hate waiting around for my nail varnish to dry and it always smudges eventually!

As you can see after just two coats you get a dazzling effect, which I love! These are so cute and can be worn with virtually any outfit. It also comes out evenly and isn’t a pain to remove which I find with other glitter nail varnishes. It chips quite easily though, but I would say this is the only downfall to the product and I’m sure it would stay better if a bottom and top coat of clear nail varnish were applied also. I just couldn’t wait to try it out!

So that’s a thumbs up to the Maybelline Polka Dot nail varnish. What are your favourite nail varnishes at the moment?
Lots of love, Jessie. xoxox

    The glitter looks like it stands out really well on this nail polish…i might have to try it!! At the moment, I have been using Sally Hansen nail polish! IT just lasts the best from my perspective. BUT I am a Chanel nail polish horder…I have all of my main nail polish colors in Chanel.

    Thanks for showing this product! I was actually looking at it a couple days ago but decided not to buy it (as I, like most other nail art lovers have way too many products already) but I'm way too in love with this product to go past it a second time. Lovely shots too :)

    God, that is gorgeous nail polish! I love a good chunky sparkle! Wonder if they make this one here in the US! I just bought a Maybelline varnish and I didn't see this one, but I'll have to pop back over to the shops to take another look! xMegan @ Little Miss Average
