Review: Jacava Raspberry Bavarois

Hi all! Today I have another review for you about a polish made by the relatively new British brand, Jacava. This luxurious polish is called Raspberry Bavarois.

Jacava’s Raspberry Bavarois is a wonderful hot pink but with a richer, fuller tone. This pretty pink has much more of a red undertone to it than a purple, and so really suits my skintone which is just one of the reasons I love it so much!

The bottle itself is very tall with a nice long brush handle which is great for getting a good grip. The brush is nice an smooth flowing and I managed to get full coverage of my nail in just three strokes. Much better than some polishes.

It took just two coats to get a nice even colour on my nail, which was great as I really hate my nail polish too thick.

You can buy this beautiful pink polish HERE for £14.50, which is a little high for your average nail polish purchaser, but it’s also an 8-free polish (free from lots of nasty chemicals) and even has gold leaf writing on the bottle!

Review: Jacava Blackberry Fool

This post contains a press sample.

Having a good day? If not, I hope I can make it a whole lot better with this gorgeous new polish I have to show you!

A few months ago an email dropped in my inbox from the company Jacava asking if I would be interested in trying out some of their brand new high quality nail polishes. Of course, I couldn’t decline! I’m a sucker for a scoop! They very kindly sent me two polishes, one of which I am finally getting around to reviewing today. Let me introduce you to Jacava’s Blackberry Fool.

Jacava really know how to sell their polish, as the description on their website make it sound like a nail polish addict’s dream!

All JACAVA non-toxic nail polish uses a premium, high gloss, long-lasting and nourishing formulation to help your nails stay stronger and grow longer. Designed in London and made in the UK, JACAVA is a quintessentially British nail polish brand with a stunning, luxurious bottle & 22-carat gold printing.

I was absolutely fascinated by the gold print on the bottle when I got it. I couldn’t believe it was real!
It is also perfect for those concerned about the toxicity of using nail polish or vegans as it..

is an ’8-free’ nail varnish. That’s free from DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Toluene, Cellophane, Parabens, Phthalates and Animal Ingredients

Be warned, it does come with a slightly higher price tag than usual at £14.50, but it is so unusual to come across a product that has been designed with so much in mind, that it doesn’t actually seem to high.
There is also quite a decent amount of polish in the bottle at 12ml, and when you compare that to £11 for a 10ml Nails Inc bottle, you get quite a reasonable amount for your money.

The colour of the nail polish is such a beautiful rich purple-y, fushcia-y, pink. In fact, Blackberry is the perfect name for it as it is such a rich fruity colour! It reminds me of the bright colours you get in a blackberry pie!

Blackberry Fool is a creme polish with a very good consistency. I was nervous about the brush when I was waiting for the them to arrive, as some premium brands can forget about this key factor (I’m looking at you, Chanel!), but the colour just painted on with ease in a few swift movements.

In these photos, you can see two coats but if I had have done a slightly thicker first coat, I don’t think I would have bothered with the second one. It has such a good pigment.

Now I’ve tried this polish, I am just itching to try the second one I was sent by them, so hopefully it’ll be here for you to read sometime in the next week.

You can buy any Jacava polish, including Blackberry Fool, for £14.50 on their website HERE. They even have a cool ‘Try It On‘ feature and you can order samples to make sure that the colour you choose will match that outfit perfectly!
