Mavala - Samoa

Hi everyone!!

I have a Mavala polish to share with you that I picked up on sale a while back for $3.  Samoa is a very sheer salmon shimmer.  I didn't expect it to be as sheer as it was, there was VNL even after three coats.  It applied really well and dried very quickly to a pearl finish, but with some visible brush strokes.  I used no base or top coat for these swatches.

I think this is a really pretty, girly color.  I just wish it was more pigmented.  I decided to add OPI Rainbow Connection to make it more interesting ;0).

I really liked the combo with Rainbow Connection.  It made it much more fun and the VNL no longer bothered me.

What do you guys think of Samoa?  Would you wear something so sheer on its own?

  1. I like this color, although I'm not really a fan of sheer polishes. But it's so springy!

  2. Love it with the glitter! Too bad about the formula. I can do 3 coats but when they're still not enough I get pissed lol.
