A: I’ve had this Mavala varnish a couple of months now and I thought it was about time I shared the wealth with all of you lovely readers.
I’ve included a couple of photos to try and show you how the colour changes in the light – it really is beautiful. Dark nail varnishes are always my favourite and I do love a good black varnish but this is a gorgeous twist from the standard black with the lovely green undertone and shimmer. It is almost two tone – but not quite, and it’s perfect for an evening out where you don’t just want to go with black nails. Plus green is my favourite colour!
It’s beautiful to apply, the brush is the perfect size and shape for my nails (they’re pretty small so not always easy to paint!) and it’s really pigmented, the photos above are just one coat! It’s long lasting too, I always use a top coat but Mavala polishes always seem to give me a few extra chip free days. They are available in Boots, and start at £4.75 a varnish – click here to see the full collection!

A: My lovely aunt bought me these little beauties at the weekend and I’ve been so excited to share them with you. As you can probably guess, I love a green nail varnish (it’s actually a bit of an obsession), and these two are perfect for me.
Mavala isn’t a brand I’ve actually heard of before, my aunt couldn’t believe it when I told her! But after some research, the brand is pretty impressive and are obviously proud to be leading natural nail care. Click here to find out more! Now, onto the products!
Black Night 107
This is a beautiful two tone polish; high shine black with an emerald green shimmer. It wasn’t easy to get a photo showing the shimmer, but hopefully you get the idea! The polish itself has amazing coverage – this is just one coat! It also has a ‘volume effect’, which I wasn’t sure I understood but it has made my nails really smooth, a lot smoother than other varnishes do. I love dark polishes, and it’s not easy to find a black with green so this is a perfect addition to my collection!
Emerald Gold 350
This is another two tone polish, green and gold. I’ve never had a polish that has such a dramatic two tone as this though, in some lights it’s definitely gold, but in others it’s 100% green! It isn’t as high coverage as black night, but it paints on beautifully if you do two thin layers. This one is a little more suited to this time of year, and I think it will be one of my staple summer to autumn polishes. I’m pretty sure it’ll be great at Christmas too with some gold glitter!
Both of these are from the Mini Polish collection at Mavala, which are available from Boots (click here to see the whole range – there’s an insane amount of colours to choose from!).
