Maybelline – Chalk Dust

As a general rule I don’t like glitter toppers. I prefer my glitters to be already mixed into a polish as I have a really bad habit of getting air bubbles and I really hate them! But I saw swatches of Maybelline’s new polka dot collection on other blogs, and when I saw Chalk Dust, I knew I had to have this polish! And luckily for me it was cheap!

I layered this over a variety of other polishes to see what it would be like.

From left to right the polishes used are:

OPI – Red Lights Ahead
Barry M – Papaya
Kiko – 356
Zoya – Max
OPI – Bubble Bath
Maybelline – Chalk Dust

The formula for all polishes was good and 2 coats were used apart from the Zoya and OPI Bubble Bath. Both of these needed 3 coats due to VNL. Bubble bath was more of a jelly than I thought it would be actually.

Only 1 coat of chalk dust was needed and it applied really well! As the glitters within chalk dust were matte I decided to use my trusty Rimmel Matte Finish topcoat.

Incidentially the polishes in the first photograph are in the same order on my nails starting from my pinkie finger.

This polish would work over so many different colours and I will try and use a glossy top coat next time as well to see how that would look.

Is this something you would purchase?

Thanks for reading. x
