NOTD #4: Mavala Flashy Violet

I have never tried a Mavala nail polish before, so when I won Strawberry Picnic's giveaway and saw this in the prize, I was quite excited to try it.

This polish has a really nice consistency, it applies smoothly, although it needed a couple of coats because the first one was a little streaky. It was definitely hard to take pictures to do this polish justice seeing as we're not getting much daylight at this time of the year, but it really is pretty.

 It doesn't show up very well in the photographs but it is a dark purple shade with very fine blue shimmer running through it. The thing I really like about it is that it isn't one of those dark blues or purples that shows up black unless you're stood under the right light.
It dried really fast after I applied it which is always a good thing. I can't really comment on the longevity of it's wear yet because I literally applied it just half an hour ago haha, I do have high hopes for it though.

I just thought I would share with you the other things I won in Strawberry Picnic's giveaway :) Emily wrapped my prizes up in Christmas wrapping paper which was really lovely :)

Denman Keyring Hairbrush, Mavala Nail Polish in Flashy Violet, Rituals Silkening Lip Treatment, Avon Glazewear Lipstick in Berry Wine, MUA Extreme Felt Eyeliner.

I love everything that she sent me so thank you again, Emily! :)
