Today I have just a quickie swatch of Maybelline Drops Of Jade today.
I bought this polish after a visit from Marta convinced me I NEEDed the Maybelline Clearly Spotted shade, and Drops Of Jade came home with me too. My cousin, Gens swatch of the blue Polka Dots shade called: Blue Marks The Spot, reassured me I made the right decision. The kicker too all this, is they were both on clearance at my SDM for $1.99! None of the other Maybellines from the Polka Dots shades were reduced. (FYI they are all in stock at my Wal-Mart as of yesterday, not sure the prices).

Maybelline Drops Of Jade is a pale green jelly that builds up to a teal, with different sizes of black & white glitter. What you see here is 4 thin coats, 3 coats just wasn't cutting it & the 4th was necessary. I also had to double top coat it.
Let me just tell you something! I am SOLD as soon as I hear something has B&W glitter in it. I know, I know! Me and every other nail polish nut right!?! Nothing new here! But IT IS new, because before the Maybelline (& Hard Candy) release, you would only be able to get these styles of glitters through indie sellers. I love to see indie inspired looks go mainstream and be easily accessible to the masses *cough*and cost less* cough*
Please don't get me wrong, I ADORE my small indie nail polish collection, and I will always keep supporting indie makers. But it is nice to see a more affordable option on the market.
Have you tried any of the Polka Dots from Maybelline? Which one is your favourite?
I'll have Clearly Spotted on the blog tomorrow!
Have a great day!
