Maybelline Color show Nails Polka Dot Collection Review

More nail polishes Candice....really?? hehe!!

I recently went in to my local Boots store and was looking at all the makeup like I do every week, maybe twice a week, ummm ok so maybe more times then that. But anyway, I came across these amazing nail polishes from Maybelline and was totally transfixed on them.

At only £2.99 YES £2.99 these are a bargain!!

There are four shades in the collection, Chalk dust, Shooting stars, Rain forest canopy and Speckled pink.

I chose Rain forest canopy and Speckled pink to try out, and boy am I in love with them.
They have a gel like consistency with different sized hexagonal glitter in shades of black and white all in matte.
There is so much glitter in these that applying this makes it so easy, and although the polish is quite opaque it goes on so lovely.

I have used two coats of Speckled pink in the photos but you could keep layering it up to give more depth and dimension.

If you are like me, I love creating nail art on my nails, but sometimes I don't have the time and this for me is second best.

A really nice idea would be to use a similar colour nail colour and then layer on the polka dot varnish.

Apparently these are limited edition, so if you like what you see go out and purchase them now!!

Thank you for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed the review.
