My blog is fast approaching its 4th birthday & I always like to take a moment to have a look back over all my posts from the previous year & pick out my favourites. I did this last year & you seemed to like it. Its been an exciting and busy year for me both in the blogging world and in my real life. So many changes and I am very much looking forward to 2016 and seeing where it takes me.
If you click on the photos it will take you through to that specific post.
I have so much content planned for 2015 and I even have some food related ones lined up too. My new kitchen is gorgeous and I have been getting a little more adventurous so I thought I would share with you more baking and cooking posts.
Let me know which of my posts has been your favourite this year!
This Metropolitan Collection* is the latest release from the Swiss nail brand Mavala, it has 6 gorgeous multi-tonal shades which have a dual chrome gloss finish.
This collection has a very pretty selection of colours from deep blue through to a stunning rose gold shade. There is a little something for everyone.
Metallic Blue – ultraviolet metallic
Copper Violet – high sheen violet with copper accents
Emerald Gold – Irish green with gold tones
Gold Bronze – gold based hue with bronze undertones
Silver Chrome – molten silver
Pink Gold – elegant rose gold hue
These polishes come in the sweetest little 5ml bottles, the brush is quite long and fairly thick I found the polish easy to apply. For the first four polishes two coats made the colour opaque and streak free but with the Silver Chrome & Pink Gold shades, I’d say apply 3 coats for the best coverage. This collection does finish glossy but I did apply my beloved Orly Top Coat to prolong my manicure & I got 6 days without chipping whilst wearing the Copper Violet Shade.
There is a lot going on with this collection in a good, it is unusual and the colours have a real pop to them. Mavala polishes are very good value for money at only £4.75 each. Mavala pride themselves on being free from harmful ingredients such as parabens, formaldehyde, toluene, camphor, cellophane, animal ingredients and heavy metal.
Which is your favourite colour from the collection? I instantly fell in love with the Copper Violet shade, its such a deep rich colour, I can’t stop looking at it when it’s on my nails. I also predict that the Rose Gold shade will be a big hit.
Products that are marked with a * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However, if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.
