Maybelline’s Color Show: Polka Dots Collection

We used to purchase polishes that look like these from indy brands. However, thanks to trend-forward Maybelline, these are in stores for everyone…

Without any base polish, here are three polishes from the Maybelline Color Show ‘Polka Dots’ collection…

If I HAD to pick a favorite, I’d go with ‘Dotty’. I don’t have anything at all like it. Which one do you like best?

Icing Polish: So Fierce

I have an obsession with the recent type of nail polishes that look like sprinkles suspended in a murky jelly base. At first, it was rare to come upon them. However, now they are quite trendy. This is a cutie I got at Icing…

In the meantime, I am unable to polish my nails, wear perfume or fragrance lotions because of my brother’s fragrance sensitivity. So, I haven’t been able to change my polish as often as I have in the past. I wore this one for about a week and I didn’t mind at all. It’s just that pretty.
