Im managing to sqeeze in a blog post at long last! Yay! Ive literally had no time to think about blogging properly with work and the new house - hopefully with me being off work next week (gosh I love half term!!) I should be able to get a few more posts written!
A couple of weeks ago (pre-house, where I actually had time to shop!!), I popped into a Lloyds pharmacy as the parents went into Clarks (yawn). We dont have one particularly nearby to us, so I was interested to see what they sold.
Nestling in to corner of the shop was a Mavala stand - much to my delight! I had seen these polishes popping up over blogs for a while and was happy to finally find some! PLUS they had a huge selection of gift sets on sale - whoohoo!
I chose this little set, as im a sucker for anything purple and glittery! It was a bargain at just £3.95!
Incuded is the purple shade in Mexico, and a lilac glitter shade called Violet Diamond.
I did some quick swatches of the colours - apologies for the awful state of my nails!
The purple is a nice dark, plummy purple and applies relatively easily, although first impressions didnt impress me as much as my OPI's or Nails Incs have done. The glitter is probably my favourite of the two - it will need a good few coats to get it as thick and as glitter-tastic as I like it I expect! This picture was with 3 quick coats.
These are also handy mini-sized bottles, coming in a 5ml bottle. These are my first 'mini' sized polishes so it will be interesting to see how long they last!
Has anyone else tried Mavala - what are your thoughts?
