Another season, another collection. About the only reason for me to get excited about winter is the launch of a new Mavala nail polish collection and despite the gloomy weather, I know these shades will brighten up any day. The Eclectic Collection takes inspiration from six new cities in the world, and going by the definition of eclectic, they’re as diverse as they come.
1.deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources
The collection includes six new shades (available for R86 each) inspired by some of the most famous cities in the world, including one of my all-time favourites. Can you guess which it is?
♥ Basel ♥ Sao Paulo ♥ Barcelona ♥ Singapore ♥ Budapest ♥ Firenze
The colours are all so perfect for winter but I love that they aren’t all cold, cool hues. They have life to them so if you’re looking for a winter shade that still offers a pop of colour, these are perfect. My three favourites are:
♥ Barcelona because, well Barcelona c’mon! This is one of my favourite cities in the world and a place I dream of going back to one day soon. This creamy pink lilac will make for a lovely Spring shade too but in the meantime I’m loving the look for winter.
♥ Basel because I can never resist a gorgeous grey nail polish (or clothing or home decor for that matter). Much like Coco Chanel loved black (and I adore it as well) grey is my go-to colour and I just can’t get enough of it. And yes, it is totally a colour!
♥ Singapore because this is such a rich, classic red that makes the perfect accompaniment to any outfit or look. It’s instantly elevating and adds an air of sophistication too.
I also really love Sao Paulo and Budapest below. I think Budapest is going to be a stunning shade to wear during spring and I have a wedding coming up that I think it would be perfect for as well.
Along with the new collection, Mavala sent me two firm favourites that I’ve known and loved for many years. These two hand creams are great go-tos to hydrate and nourish hands throughout the winter, and any time of year. Choose Mavala Hand Cream for daily use and Mavala Mava+ Extreme Care for Hands for really intense nourishment and extremely dry skin. This one is also fragrance-free whereas the regular Hand Cream has a soft pleasant scent for every day use. Consistency-wise, the Mava+ is thicker and richer than the more fluid Hand Cream but both absorb really well and fairly quickly.
