When their new season colours landed on my doorstep, my initial thoughts were how nice the colours were. The collection inspiration was taken from A/W 09-10 catwalk colours.
Liberty(taken from Chloe)- a soft nude.
Ruby (taken from 3.1 Philip Lim)- a bold striking pink
Tokyo (taken from Balmain)- a deep dark blue, matte finish.
What makes Mavala different?
The formula delivers microscopic air pockets to allow nails to breathe and is free from parabens, formaldehydes, toluene, camphore, cellophane, animal ingredients and heavy metal.
This means is a perfect range to use when you are growing out nail damage from extensions. I removed my gels this weekend ready for my nail break and new gels this week. I used my usual Sally Hansen base and then Liberty. The polish was so easy to apply, no gloopyness, no running. It was just, easy. My biggest bug bear with nail colour is streaking which this didn't do either. So many nudes I have used in the past haven't managed to give me a consistent colour without looking streaky and awful. The smell of these was muted too which made the whole experience that little bit nicer.
The best thing about this brand is the price. The pots are 5ml and priced at £3.66. These are smaller than most polishes but more than enough to get you through a season before the next trend comes along. You can buy these in salons, department stores and Debenhams. Perfect stocking fillers and Secret Santa items.
