Mavala Miami Nail Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 8 - 2010

The lovely liloo is in search of a potential nail polish delight.  She’s looking for a wearable (ie. not too bright or shocking) blue-based pink.  Think MAC Snob in a bottle.

I’ve been through my collection and can’t find anything suitable.  This was the nearest.

I picked Mavala Miami up when I raided the Debenhams sale last summer, it is blue based… perhaps not strongly enough to fit in the ‘Snob’ category, but it’s getting there.

As for my polish requirements.  I LOVE it. It’s pink and girly, but stops short of being sugary thanks to it’s definite brightness.  I feel all summery wearing it and I may even have to reapply before moving on to another shade (high praise indeed!).

Application was tremendous.  3 easy, easy coats achieved a perfect finish, but as with a lot of Mavala’s, it doesn’t quite have the high-gloss finish I love, so I added a top-coat to get that glass-like sheen.  Longevity is average, a bit of tip wear towards the end of the 2nd day, but it’s not too noticeable thanks to the forgiving shade.

I’m really pleased I picked this Mavala Miami shade up and I may have to start dragging myself into some more spring/summer-like shades!

Anyone have any nail polish “Snob” suggestions for Liloo?

    Thank you SO MUCH for this post, Charlotte! I’ve been looking for this kind of pale, opaque pink for absolute ages but it never occurred to me to look at Mavala. Brilliant!

    As for Snob suggestions, I’m afraid everything I could think of is too bright/dark :/ Not very helpful today, am I…

    I think that is quite an impressive match to snob lippie. Snob is one of my faves 🙂 That polish is lovely 🙂

    Without wanting to sound weird/dodgy the nails look so scrumptious, I could just eat them. The cool tone of this make the nails appear so clean, so polish, yet not too dull as a something perhaps too mauvy would. Lovely to see that snob in a bottle would also appeal to lots of people. Yay 🙂 How can I get from total noob to addicted to polishes in 48 hours lol. I am adding this to my list of lemmings, while I find the perfect snob in a bottle.

    This is such a whole new world for me. So much to learn, this is fascinating. Gazzillions of questions are swirling through my head. (These are just questions I ask myself, no worries xx)
    Where do you mainly shop when you shop for nail stuff (hairdressers for opi? online?) Do you remember the shade of nail polish you first bought? Would you say your tastes in colour, texture, finishes have changed over the years or have you stayed true to your heart? Are there brands you definitely don’t like and won’t use again?
    ok, you can wake up now, I’m done 😛

    I love the application of Mavala as well. So easy to get very thin and even coats!

  8. Rae says:

    Oooh! I don’t know of any Snob-ish pinks, but this is just gorgeous ^^

  9. Normally I dont like this kind of colour on me, but the fact that you compared it to Snob makes me want it XD
