Product Review: Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Collection

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

First of all – have you ever taken a close up photo of your toes or fingers? Oh boy, Mama needs a professional mani AND a pedi!

Moving on… :) I have been wearing a new polish for a couple of days that I wanted to share with you. I received it from Maybelline at London Drug’s Fall Cosmetics Preview event.


I think it’s fun; it’s much different to what I usually wear. I’ve had pedicures before where it’s taken required the aesthetician to mix two or three different polishes to achieve this look. Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Collection features fun, modern colours with different size ‘polka dots’ right in the polish. I applied two coats and a clear top coat – and it has lasted two full days so far. For me, this is a win. I’m usually so hard on my hands and feet, especially in the summer, that my polish only lasts a day or two.

In this photo I’m wearing Drops of Jade. Sorry for the close up finger view. I couldn’t bring myself to post a photo of my feet! What I enjoyed most about it is that it looked exactly the same on my nails as it does in the clear container.


I really enjoyed that when it was time to take it off (of my tester finger; it’s still on my toes), it wasn’t too difficult to remove. I have used polishes with sparkles or glitter in them before and it takes about 25 minutes to remove the bits from each nail! This came off with little effort. I had to scratch off a few of the larger polka dots, but comparatively, removing this was a breeze.

Give it a go if you’re up for a fun, flirty, polka-dotty look on your hands or feet. The Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Collection comes in 5 colours. Check out their website for more information and you can download a couple of coupons, too.
