Rawrgirls Review . . . Jacava London Nail Polish - Blueberry Muffin!

Thursday 25 April 2013

Now I love nail polish, I have close to 80 bottles of the little guys, but when Jacava London got in touch to see if I wanted to try a bottle of their good stuff, I had to admit that I hadn't heard of the brand, which is a good reason for trying it out really! Here's a little info for you before we get to the colour ;)

Designed in London and made in the UK, Jacava London is a quintessentially British nail polish brand, and is the world's first 8-free nail varnish! It's free from DBP, camphor, formaldehyde, toluene, collophane, parabens, phthalates and animal ingredients, plus they never test on animals. The polish is a premium, high gloss, long-lasting and nourishing formulation which helps your nails stay stronger and grow longer. Ta daaaaa!

Using the Colour Selector I chose yummy purple, Blueberry Muffin - £14.50. It has a really great consistency which makes it easy to apply. It's also really dense and opaque, so 2 coats later and I was good to go with one of the glossiest high shine finishes I've seen without a top coat! I LOVE the colour and got a ton of compliments from friends and colleagues, result!

uk fashion and style blog beauty review of Jacava London nail polish Blueberry Muffin.

I'd go as far as to say that the consistency is better than Illamasqua (a similarly priced polish and one of my faves). I did find that it started to chip after two days BUT I do a lot of typing in my job and I generally find it difficult to find a polish that doesn't start to deteriorate after a day or two, so I'm not going to hold this against it. Overall, I liked this polish and would definitely buy one if another colour took my fancy, so I'd really like to see a wider colour range from Jacava London :)

  6. You did a nice job applying the Jacava London Blueberry Muffin nailpolish. I like the purple colour. I've been interested in finding makeup that's vegan , cruelty free and devoid of harmful chemicals, so Jacava London's nail lacquer being 8-free is great news. I like the colour of their "Knightsbridge Opulence (Metallic) and their "Crimson Crush" as well. Thanks for the find!


  7. Wow, a nail polish that is actually good for your nails! And it looks amazing too. Might have to check out their site!

  9. I change my polish every two days or so, so I wouldn't really mind about the chipping! It's such an incredible summer colour! Oooh, pay day tomorrow, I'm tempted

  10. I'm terrible with painting my nails, I think I have about 5 nail varnishes in total! xxx

  11. I love nail polish, but sometimes I'm so lazy about it. Does this stay on for long? That's my biggest issue with nail polish, when it cracks after a day or two.

  12. This is such an amazing colour!

  13. Nice color! Would you like to follow each other? xoxo
