Maybelline Colour Show Polkadots Collection

Hello, I'm back starting with a post about the new Maybelline Colour show polka dot collection. I only got 3 out of the 4 available, the one I don't have is the teal coloured one, i spotted these in boots and they just caught my eye and had to have them they are a great price at just £2.99 and they are on offer at the moment in boots at buy one get one half price bingo! 

Alot of nail polish brands are now coming out with all sorts of jazzy nail effects such as concrete effect (nails inc)and sand effect (opi), now there are alot of hight street brands coming out with nail polishes similar to that of the indie ones..cue colour show polka dots.
L-R Chalk Dust,  Shooting Stars, Speckled Pink

First up is speckled pink, in the bottle it looks fab and i had hoped it would be like this on the nails but it wasn't as milky looking, its like the polish sank behind the polka dots if that makes any sense? but none the less i still like this polish, it wears really good aswell which is a bonus for the cheap price tag.

Next up is shooting stars OH MY! this is by far my favourite, look how the blues pop against the dark background  its just amazing i love it! ..enough slushing about this Zoe...
I posted this picture on my instagram account @zoelou_ and i had so many people ask where i got it and how great it looks,
with this one the colour pay off isn't great on its own but choose the right base colour and it comes alive ha! 
I used this over 2 coats of Essie's Midnight Cami and a topcoat of Seche Vite  

Then finally its Chalk Dust this one is more of a topcoat which gives a really cute speckled effect to your favourite polish! this one is almost identical to the Loreal Confetti topcoat so if you have that you probably wont need this, i accidentally did.

Top finger over Nails Inc baker street, middle is over Essie lights and bottom one is over Nails inc royal botanical gardens
I just have to show you one more thing, its this cool little trick you can do with the black and white topcoats to get the effect of the Illamasqua speckled polishes and that is to sandwich it between a jelly polish like this...

This is one coat with Essie Absolutely Shore then one Maybelline chalk dust and another light layer of absolutely shore
 So ladies give the sandwich a go for a fab effect :)

What do you think of these polka dot polishes? Which one will you pick?
