Four new nail polishes arrived through the post this week and as usual, I couldn’t wait to try them! Once I opened the parcel, I was tempted to paint each nail in a different colour but eventually decided to go for the bright orange for now. It’s pigmented and opaque, with only two coats applied. After a few days, it still hasn’t chipped yet so I’m impressed with the staying power!
The shades pictured above are from the Chilli and Spice collection and you can purchase Mavala polishes from Boots, Fenwicks, Debenhams
and John Lewis
, each bottle retails at £4.50. Not a bad price for a good quality polish – it is long lasting, very opaque, dries quick and it’s free from parabens, animal ingredients and heavy metal! – But the size of the bottles are a bit on the small side (but I adore anything in miniature size!) Despite showing up a little “textured” on the colour wheel, be assured that the formula itself is smooth and high-shine when applied on your actual nails.
The orange shade I’ve got on is called Jaipur, the pink is called Bali, the purple is Samarkand and the beautiful turquoise is named Bomaka. There are two other ones in the collection (red and blue) and each one is wonderfully vibrant. The shades in this collection are all very “fiery colours” and goes well with the Chilli and Spice theme. I had no problems with applying this, the brush was easy to handle and I managed to get the lacquer on my nails quite neatly! I think I’ll try the purple one next, I don’t own anything quite like that shade!
