NOTD: Mavala Platinum Marble Nail Polish

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 11 - 2012

This pretty caught my eye during that mind-numbing lull between Christmas and New Year.  I was browsing through the beauty stuffs in my local John Lewis, knuckles dragging the ground ‘cos I couldn’t find anything I really wanted, when all of a sudden an angel appeared beside me and thrust this tiny bottle into my hand*.

* this may not have actually happened

Anyway, here’s Mavala Platinum Marble, it’s quite nice no?

I’d describe it as a silvered taupe with a pearl-shimmer finish – it’s heading in the direction of frosty but minus the brushstrokes.  It’s a very pretty work appropriate shade that took three coats to achieve full opacity on my nails.

Currently priced at a bargainous £2.99 over on BeautyBay (I paid £4.10 for this one instore).

What are you wearing on your nails today?

    Such a perfect taupe!

    Gorgeous colour! I love Mavala 🙂

  3. Grace London says:

    Remember that Dior Silver nail polish we both liked in the promo shot, but it wasn’t quite the same in real life? This is the colour I wanted it to be. Lovely.

  4. Lucy says:

    Ooooh I like this, it’s really pretty 🙂

  5. Victoria says:

    Gorgeous colour and very work appropriate (although I do enjoy wearing inappropriate pink sparkles to work too)!

  6. Hannah says:

    That is such an unusual, lovely shade. Heads over to BeautyBay ….

  7. I have about 5 Mavala nail polishes and they’re all fantastic – I get about a week’s wear out of them. Love love love. Rouge Rubis is my favourite but Platinum Marble looks GORGE!! I need it.

    I have plenty Mavala. Good brand. This one is a bit ‘meh’ for me. I know you say it’s not ‘brushstrokey’ but there’s something not quite right about it.

    My nails rejoice in Ludurana flakies, HITS flakies and Nubar Opulent Pearl over Revlon Emerald City and a hot combo it IS!
