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!
Lots of love, Jessie. xoxox
