This week's Manicure - Snappy Sorbet with dots!


Today I wanted to share my manicure, I got one of the Maybelline Polka Dots polishes in my Cara Box.  So I wanted to check it out.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Snappy Sorbet
I started with a base of Sally Hansen Complete Manicure Base Coat.  Then I put on Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Snappy Sorbet.  You can see my bottle has a strip of color on the top from my organizing system I talked about HERE. 
This polish with the base coat wears really well,  I didn't put a top coat on and I have only minor tip wear after 3 days.  It has a wide brush that I find kind of hard to work with, but the formula spreads well and they always have lots of trendy colors.

Then I grabbed my Maybelline Color Show in Dotty and did an accent nail.
 The translucent orange base of Dotty made the Snappy Sorbet look "oranger" for sure - and it was hard to place the dots, I couldn't get a lot of the big ones.  I'm not sure how I feel about the polka dot top coat trend.  Maybe it's just because it's orange - but it feels a bit "Halloween-y" to me.
What do you think?


  1. Looks like a gorgeous nail polish! I have a few other polishes from the Maybelline Colour Show line and I love them all.

    1. It's too Halloweeny for any other time - it's all I can think when I see it.
