The Metropolitan collection from Swiss brand Mavala consists of six beautiful metallic nail colours. Each one comprises different colours that blend together to form jewel-like colours with a liquid metal effect.

What we say:
I usually stay clear of metallic nail colours as I’ve always thought that matte suits me better. However, I haven’t quite come across a collection like this one before. Each bottle is a fusion of multiple colours and literally looks like metal in its liquid form. The colours have a metallic finish, and depending on the light, a multitude of reflections.
I tried Gold Bronze, a gold-ish shade with hints of bronze and avocado green. I was apprehensive about the colour as I am quite pale and gold is definitely not my colour. However, thanks to the multitude of hues in the one bottle, the colour looked surprisingly nice. It required three coats for 100% even application (I applied two and later realised that there were a couple of streaks on some of my nails).
The overall colour was absolutely gorgeous and the finish looks very similar to how it looks in the bottle, which is very unusual. I was slightly disappointed by the wear though, as I noticed the first chips appeared on day 3.
By far my favourite metallic nail colour!
