Brace yourselves, the beauty world is about to go dotty
Date: July 7, 2013
Polish: Maybelline Clearly Spotted, from the Color Show Polka Dots collection
Don’t you love when a collection is worth the hype? There’s nothing worse than ramping up for highly touted launch, only to be left with a “meh.” Dear readers, I predict not a single meh will be uttered with Color Show Polka Dots by Maybelline!
First launched in the UK, the dots have finally landed on US soil and they are well worth the wait. The five polishes all have black and white multi-sized and shaped dots suspended in a jelly base, except for the lone clear; Clearly Spotted, which is my favorite of the bunch.
Beauty Junkies Unite and All Lacquered Up have beautiful images of Clearly Spotted on naked nails (plus swatches of the other four Polka Dots polishes). But I loved it best when used over a color polish with a creme finish. My favorite combo was paired with the bright bubblegum pink shade Anime by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
It’s pretty darn fab over Wasabi by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics too, a bright chartreuse.
Whether it reminds you of a formica countertop, a Jackson Pollock painting or something you may have seen on a 80s sweatshirt (worn falling off one shoulder, of course) – there’s something decidedly retro about Clearly Spotted. And you know we love that!
we heartsters, will you be going dotty this summer with the Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots launch?
