I am a right little magpie when it comes to sparkly, shiny things so when I first laid eyes apon the new Mavala Metropolitan collection I swooned! Straight onto my review of these babies.
These polishes are multi-toned and metallic, with a high shine and dual chrome finish which makes them an absolute pleasure to look at (they remind me of beetle shells and scarab beetles)!
My favourite of the range is Pink Gold – a stunning almost opal toned rose gold, closely followed by Copper Violet which isn’t a shade I’d normally wear on my nails but it really stands out from the rest, for it’s purple sheen (the swatches above don’t do it enough justice)! Gold Bronze and Emerald Gold are similar as they both have a greenish base which was super popular last year, and their tones really do shimmer in the light. Finally Metallic Blue is a dark, almost navy blue with a metallic twist.
At first glance they reminded me of the Models One Beetlejuice Range (my review here) but having compared them, these are much more ‘mature’ and wearable as they don’t include the glitter. What I also really like about Mavala is that their polishes are free from parabens, formaldehydes and other nasties.
These are available in John Lewis stores and online for £4.75 each!
