Mavala First Class Collection
Mavala First Class Collection

I’m a big fan of Mavala for their small sizes. The nail category in beauty is vastly over-saturated and, well, let’s face it – we’ve probably all got enough nail varnish to paint the Forth Bridge twice over. I prefer to buy polish in smaller sizes where possible because at least there is a chance that I might use one up – I’m sure that there must be some statistics somewhere that says people have enough unused nail polish to flood 12 football pitches or something! The Mavala First Class Collection is just a happy collection of colours that all easy wears for summer and named for destinations. Rather than take long holidays, me and Mr BBB tend to do a few long weekend breaks, invariably with hand luggage only (I’d rather have less outfit options than wait at the carousel of hell) so even though a smaller size polish only shaves off milimeters of space in the tiny allowance bag, it’s still worth having and means I can deal with any chips. It’s that or no polish.

So shades from top of the wheel to the bottom are: Spitzberg, Tahiti, Fiji, Cape Town, Long Island and Cortina. Cortina is a beautiful grey-violet but Fiji or Cape Town can get on my nails right now!

The Mavala First Class Collection is HERE and polishes (5ml) are £4.95 each. Some are listing out of stock but Cortina is still there!
