Manicure Monday: Maybelline Color Show 'Chalk Dust'

Hey Guys!

Hope everyone had a great weekend :)

Today for Manicure Monday I have on Maybelline 'Chalk Dust'. 
It's a really pretty polish with black and white glitter in a clear base. The glitter are all different sizes and range from circular to hexagonal which is great for layering.

'Chalk Dust' is part of the Polka Dots collection from Maybelline which have been available for a few months now. I have these in three different colours. The currently retail in Boots for €4.49.

I decided to paint this over OPI 'Alpine Snow' but really you could use any colour and it would look gorgeous. As I painted this over a white base the white parts of the polish can't be seen. I only used one layer for the photo above. I've tried it over a black polish also and it does look great however you can only see the white parts which gives a cool effect. 

This polish actually reminds me of television static, which is probably what drew me to it in the first place!

Remember when you were younger having a sleepover with friends and everybody would fall asleep and leave the TV on? When you woke up in the middle of the night all that would be on the screen would be the static. It used to freak me out all the time! It reminds me of Poltergeist when the little girl is in front of the TV and the spirit is trying to come out!

Anyway hope everyone is having a great Monday so far!
