Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots in Drops of Jade

Drops of Jade is part of the Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots collection that came out this past summer, when people were all over the speckled nail look featured in other beauty brands such as Deborah Lippman, Illamasqua, Hard Candy, and Nails Inc. Personally, I loved Illamasqua's version, which had a mix of small and large black glitters in milky bases to imitate the look of speckled bird's eggs. What I didn't love as much was the $22 CAD price tag. I was super excited when Maybelline released Polka Dots, because its mix of small and large hexagonal black and white glitter made it very similar to the Illamasqua polishes.

The milky, slightly jelly jade green is so pretty, and perfect for creating that layered polka dot look. I used two coats of Drops of Jade over Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint on my little and ring fingers, and applied three coats of Drops of Jade on its own on my middle and index fingers. Most people I polled preferred it on its own, but I like it best layered on top of another polish because I felt like three coats' worth of polka dots looked a little crowded.

I was so worried about it going out of stock or getting discontinued that I picked it up right away! I guess it must have been pretty popular, because I still see this collection in stores (~$3-4 CAD).

How is your 2014 going so far? Which look do you prefer?
