Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots: Pretty in Polka

Quick swatch post!  I spotted the Maybelline Color Show Polka Dot display at my Target last week, and of course couldn’t leave without one.  I’ve been *trying* to be better about not buying ALL THE THINGS, so I limited myself to just 1.  Being an indie nut, I already have a few great black and white toppers- so I grabbed the pink color, Pretty in Polka.  If you don’t already have a black and white glitter topper, I think Maybelline’s version looks to be a pretty good one (only hexes in different sizes, no bar glitter) and best of all, it’s cheap!

I initially thought this polish would be really sheer and need a lot of coats, but it didn’t- these pictures show just 2 coats with no topcoat.  I didn’t have to do too much in the way of glitter placement, but I did do a bit of dabbing for the occasional empty spot.

Application was pretty good- like I said, it built up very well, and the glitter went on smoothly and without any issue.  There’s a lot of glitter payoff with minimal effort- no fishing required.   Very pretty!  I also thought the teal color was very beautiful- I may break my rule and go back for it 🙂

Maybelline Color Show Polka Dot polishes can be found at various drug stores in a display (Walgreens, CVS, Target) though as always not all stores will have them.  You can also buy them online now at Target.com for $2.99 each!
