Today I'll be reviewing my first Color Show Nail Lacquer by Maybelline, and it's from the 'Polka Dots' collection. This color interested me the most out of the collection, and the cool thing is its name: Drops of Jade (that's me!). As I said, this is my first time trying a Color Show polish and I'm happy to report that I was very pleased with it!
Drops of Jade has a beautiful transluscent jade green base with white and black hex glitters of different sizes in it. I wasn't expecting to end up loving it as much as I do, but.. I do!
Okay, so the above it just one coat of polish. The formula is thin and slightly watery, and as you can see you'll need one or two more coats. I found that sometimes the polish could all pull to the tip of the nail, and the polka dots could drag with the brush if you used too much pressure but otherwise application was really nice and easy! The brush on my bottle had a few rebellious hairs sticking out but that didn't interere with the application.
Alright, here we go! This is two coats, but you might want to use three as there were still a few spots that were slightly transluscent. Since the base is transluscent you get that cool dimension to the polka dots though; see how some of them are covered by the base and some are opaque? I absolutely love the look of this polish, and sometimes I just stop and admire my nails. Because of the polka dots the nail is a bit gritty to the touch, so make sure to top everything off with a good top coat.
So, what do you think? Do you like the polka dot trend?
