NOTD – Mavala Black Cherry from the Mystic Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 24 - 2009

Mavala Black Cherry is one of the shades I was sent from the upcoming Mystic Collection (available from January).

It’s a rich black shimmer infused with a cherry sparkle that isn’t quite red and isn’t quite purple.  The sparkle is very subtle and you have to be upclose with the polish to truly appreciate how much it lifts the polish from the realms of ‘just another black’.

Mavala Black Cherry is a solid 2-coater with a great formula that glides on without flooding the cuticles or suffering from drag.

Every dark Mavala shade I’ve tried looks positively amazing once the top coat is added.  Love it.

Apologies for the teeny tiny image, I’m gonna see if I can get hold of a bigger one once the holidays are over, but for now, I wanted to show you the Mystic Collection as a whole.  You can see that they’re all black based with varying degrees of coloured shimmer.

I also have Black Velvet (purple infused) and Mosaic Blue (blue infused) to swatch for you.  I’m ridiculously excited about Black Velvet which, in the bottle looks divine.

You can purchase Mavala polishes online from FeelUnique and GreenHands, they generally retail for around £3.75 for a 5ml bottle.

Do you like or are you getting tired of the dark shades? I must admit that I’m looking forward to Spring, although I don’t know why as I’m not sold on the pastelly shades that inevitably feature heavily in Spring collections.

I’m on eBay hunting down some of the Mavala Diamond collection from AW 09/10… I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve gone a little glitter crazy!

    This shade is soo nice! I can see hints of red in there, which is why I kinda like it. 😀 I’m so jealous! 😛

  2. Grace London says:

    Love that colour. The little bottles are such a good idea.

  3. Claire says:

    This colour is gorgeous. I’ve never tried any Mavala products, this may just have tempted me to look out for some in the new year.

  4. Jo says:

    Ooo…. your nails are growing back nicely hunny, love that shade aswell.

    That’s a very pretty wine color 🙂 I love the dark shades like that but I’m usually disappointed as I always want more of the color to show lol. I think I just need to make up my mind 😛

  6. Citrine says:

    I like the color with your skintone, and your painting is so neat. Deep color usually smear off like mad on my hand (it’s worse on my right hand).

    Love this! The entire Mystic Collection with dark colours looks so cool. I must see about getting me some bottles. 🙂

  8. Redtiger21 says:

    Oooooh that is luuuurrrvely! I totally love dark colours- light ones just enhance the ruddiness of my skin, especially on my hands, and i think darker colours look sexier on toes than lighter ones.

  9. Caitlin says:

    I’ve never heard of this brand before, but the color is gorgeous. So simple, yet really pretty. And I LOVE your nail shape!

  10. @Dv – Yeah, it has some lovely dark cherry red hints in it, my picture makes it look a little flat actually, it’s more shimmery than it appears!

    @Grace London – Aren’t they? So much easier to store and I may actually finish a bottle one day!

    @claire – Ooh you must! They’re super affordable, and if you have short nails – this collection is a must have!

    @Jo – Thanks lovely, they’re growing quite quickly!

    @Nicole – No, I totally agree! I think this one could do with being a little more colour apparent aswell… it’s better than most, but I just think that even more cherry shimmer would really make it shine!

    @Citrine – Thank you, my left hand is my worst (as I’m left handed so not good with painting with my right!) I always have to do a fair amount of clean up and unfortunately, I have to hold my camera with my right hand… so it’s always the left that you see in pictures – typical! Otherwise I wouldn’t bother so much with the clean up!

    @Witoxicty – Yes, do!! I’m very excited to try the others!

    @Redtiger21 – Oh yes! Dark vampy toes are so much better than pale ones, it just doesn’t look right does it? You should keep an eye out on the Debenhams website… I keep snapping up some Mavala bargains on there!

    @Caitlin – Thank you! It is a gorgeous shade and applies really nicely!
