Are you surprised? Momma Bean is doing a nail polish post? Let’s just say that when it comes to nail polishes, never say never! Blogging comes with all sorts of perks, yummy finds, and then the cool finds. If I’ve known that blogging would have saved me a few bucks back then, I would have started blog reading or my own blog right away. But here we go.
Who doesn’t love nail polishes? I thought I didn’t. Boy, was I wrong. Coming across Mavala’s range at Beautybay.com made me want to love my nails once again!
It’s also one of those guilt-free must haves since Mavala nail colours are toluene, formaldehyde, DBP, collophane, paraben, camphor, animal ingredient and heavy metal free! What about that?!
For those who are unfamiliar about this brand, here’s a little bit of history about Mavala:
Mavala – a Swiss brand – is the world leader in nail care with a heritage spanning over 50 years. Created in 1958 by MAdelaine VAn LAndeghem and with the introduction of Scientifique Nail Hardener which remains one our best selling products to date, Mavala is available globally in over 100 countries, with stockist ranging from small independent salons to large department stores. Not only do they have a wide selection of nail colours that are to die for, they also have skincare and makeup range, which a beauty must definitely check out.
I must say, when I saw this brand at my local drugstore, I had the ‘meh’ face since this 5ml nail polish costs around £4.30 each! But it all made sense after further scrolling and reading online that this brand’s nail polishes are free from nasties! Then it got all interesting!
And when I bumped into Mavala’s Delicious Colour Collection at Beautybay for only £12.49 for the whole set (5 nail polishes), I wasn’t going to let that opportunity passed me by. Would you?!
From Left to Right: Fresh Melon, Candy Floss, Pistachio, Sparkling Violet*, Frozen Berry and Lemon Cream
Only the Sparkling Violet was not included in the set. This retailed £3.50, which is by far the cheapest I could find both in-store and online. A little bit of sparkle won’t hurt, right?
Sparkling Violet by Mavala. Bought at Beautybay.com for £3.50 ($5+ approx.)
Frozen Berry is without a doubt my favourite, but on a good day, I probably would paint my each nail with different colour, just so I could have all the delicious-ness on them!
Pistachio and Frozen Berry simply compliment each other, and I enjoyed experimenting with the two colours with some added sparkles! Umm, ok, I guess I went overboard here. haha.
Reversed the colours to see what the outcome would be. I think I prefer the first swatches. What about you?
There you have it! My first dip into the world of colours and sparkles! There’s more glitter-pleasure to come, so please stay tuned!
