Rawrgirls Review . . . Mavala Techni-Color Collection!

Tuesday 27 May 2014

This season Mavala are encouraging us to indulge in a little flamboyance with 6 bold new shades from their latest collection - Techni-Color

There's something for everybody in this collection, and I was lucky enough to be sent them all for review - to the colours!

Black Night - because a simple black would be too obvious, so Mavala have specked this one with a metallic green for that Maleficent gothic glam look! This is a 2 coat job, and the green is very subtle but you can catch it in the light. I do lurve this one.

Arty Pink - a fun and bubbly pink with a subtle light reflective sheen. Again a 2 coater, but a bit tame for me, still it's quite pretty if you're into your pinks.

Cyber Yellow - billed as a fluorescent yellow with green undertones, it's certainly very sharp in tone and changes colour in different lights. I've noticed it ranging from gold through to lemon sherbert and onto a stronger acid yellow. I would've preferred a cream to the metallic but that's personal taste. This is 3 coats and it looks great.

Cobalt Blue - a fresh, bright blue with a solid cream finish. This is the type of finish I would've preferred on Cyber Yellow. It's PERF, and definitely my fave of the six. I have literally tens of different blues but this one just went straight to the top of my list. It's dense at 2 coats but a third seals the deal.

Antarctic - white nails are set to be one of this season's must have looks and this is a great place to start. A perfect ice white with cream finish - yey! You can't go wrong with three coats of this and a tan, so I'm all set to work this one all summer.

Orange Fusion - a melding of orange and red for a pop of colour. A 2 coater, and again like Cyber Yellow it shifts colour in the light. One minute it looks like a juicy orange, the next it's verging more on red. It's nice but I have brighter Mavala oranges in my collection.

Individually, I have big love for Cobalt Blue, Antarctic and Black Night, but when worn together you can suddenly see why they are together in a collection called Techni-Color, it reminds me of the TV testcard! Black and white with a variation of shades that cover the other colours? I was surprised at how well they bounce off each other. Mavala you geniuses.

It's no secret that Mavala are my fave nail brand, I have gazillions of these little bottles, so I was super excited to hear that they're launching in Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar Liverpool! No more scouring the internet for swatches before ordering online for me, now I can see them with my own eyes, and at £4.75 each this could be dangerous ;)
