On My Nails: Nails Inc Caramel & Maybelline Colour Show Polka Dots

I love the Maybelline Colour Show Polka Dots in Chalk Dust. I haven't tried the L'Oreal Confetti Top Coat but i'm guessing they are similar. The reason I opted for the Maybelline one is because it's a bit cheaper and I now have a few polishes from the Colour Show range and i'm really pleased with the quality. I decided to try it over a neutral colour so used Nails Inc Caramel which I got free a while ago in Boots when I bought two bottles of Coke. I love it when they do deals like that as even though I do like the Nails Inc polishes I never want to spend £11 on a bottle. I love the neutral shade underneath the black and white polka dot effect, it reminds me of eggs. I think next time I use it i'll try it over some pretty pastel colours such as Barry M's Blue Moon.

I would definitely recommend the Colour Show Polka Dots, it dries really quickly, gives such a lovely speckled look and you only need to apply a couple of coats to get an even and eye-catching effect. 

There are two other shades which look really pretty, let me know if you have tried them or are a fan of the Chalk Dust polish too! 


  1. Its so pretty Hannah, I love anything with sparkles. <3

  2. Love this. I have a version of the confetti polish by 17 which was super super cheap, but as a top coat over good quality polish, I don't see the point in splashing out on something more expensive, so I'd have done the same in choosing between Maybelline and Loreal :) Scottish Wendy | Wendy's World xx

  3. The confetti polish looks super cute! Is it a nightmare to remove like most other glittery nail varnishes?


    1. It is quite tough to remove, but not as bad as glitter polishes :)

  4. Great idea for this manicure for night out, looks very beautiful!
