Review: Mavala Sublime Collection Espresso

This is a press sample.

Last week I received some really lovely nail mail in the post from Mavala in the form of their new Sublime Collection, six polishes perfectly suited to this cooler time of year.

Today I have for you one of the darker polishes in the collection – Espresso. Espresso is a rich dark coffee colour, almost of the colder tones of brown than the warmer which makes it quite an unusual brown polish.

Fast Food Challenge: Fried Chicken Nails

Please tell me this looks like fried chicken legs! I know my ring finger is a bit weird, but literally no one at work could work out what they were :(

It has been so so hard coming up with another manicure for the fast food theme in the She Who Does Nail Art Challenges group, especially after the mad success of my McDonalds design!

Finally, I came up with the idea of fried chicken nails. It looked better in my head before I started painting it, admittedly.

Fast food Challenge - Fried Chicken Nails

I started by painting one base coat of Barry M’s Blueberry Ice Cream and then used a tiny paintbrush to paint the chicken bits of the chicken with LA Colors Bronze Bombshell, also using it to paint my ring finger. After that, I used the new Barry M Nail Art Pen in White to draw on the little chicken bones (still loving these pens – see my review HERE). Finally, I used a brown acrylic paint to create the texture on my ring finger and on the little chicken pieces.

I hope you all like it! It’s making me want a KFC for lunch!
