Maybelline Polka Dot Collection Swatches+Review

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the delay in posts this week. Like I said earlier, I went to my friend's house this week and the lighting was kind of bad there and I couldn't get many good photos. I'd rather have quality over quantity any day. 

On the other hand, I have swatches of three of the new Maybelline Polka Dot Collection polishes. These polishes are jellies with black and white glitter distributed in it. I bought this at Rite Aid for $3.99 each. Not a bad price for polishes I must say! I only bought three colors because I wasn't really into the other shades that much. I'm contemplating buying the jade polish though. Let's move on with the review!

Maybelline Polka Dot Collection
 This is Pretty in Polka, a sheer candy pink with black and white glitter. I used three coats for this swatch using the dab and swipe method. With all of these, I would probably suggest using a creme polish and then layering the polish on. It looks great by itself though. The drying time was also very good with this one.

Blue Marks the Spot (such a creative name by the way!) is a sheer cerulean blue with black and white glitter. I did three coats of this polish and used the dab and swipe method as well. I had no problems with this polish as well, but I will say that it is very sheer for the first two coats. Once again, this would be best if you layered the polish over another blue polish, but it is pretty by itself.

The last one that I'm showing you is Clearly Spotted. Clearly Spotted is a black and white glitter in clear polish. This is one coat over several different colors. This could be considered a dupe for Hard Candy's Black Tie Optional, but I actually prefer this to Black Tie Optional and it's a little bit different. For one, it doesn't have the straight glitter that always comes up with Black Tie Optional. It has the hexagon pieces  and the small black and white pieces, so I like that about this glitter.

Overall, these colors are absolutely amazing. The formulas are great, fast drying, and easy to work with. Granted with most glitters it can be a pain to take off, but overall these are great.

What do you think of these polishes? 

Until next time!

This review was solely based on my honest opinion. I was not paid or asked to do this review for anyone.
