Mavala Mini Mani: Lisboa

Pink isn't a colour I tend to gravitate towards, however I've developed a newfound love for it since discovering Lisboa, part of the Mavala Mini Manor range.  Falling under the 'Pearl' category, the strikingly feminine shade has completely changed my opinion of both the colour pink and it's appearance when applied to the nails.  I won't deny that I'm a massive fan of nude nails, however Lisboa has probably received more compliments in the space of a few days than my latte-coloured talons ever have!




There's no denying this bold and beautiful colour steals the show and so it's definitely one for spring/summer.  I can imagine it working really well with so many looks, all the way from a simple white shift dress to a tropical print two piece!  Having said that, it doesn't mean I won't be reaching for a bottle of Sally Hansen's Café au Lait as soon as Lisboa finishes shining bright..

With love,

Gabrielle x

    1. You're right, it is a 'pearl pink' - that's the word I was looking for! Mavala really is a brilliant brand and undoubtedly in my top three with Sally Hansen and Jessica Nails. Thanks I had a lovely Easter weekend and hope you did too! :)

  36. Oooh that is a pretty colour. I'm actually making the change to berry tones now myself. I was contemplating going down the nude path (and I am sure I inevitably will) but decided to go for a bright berry tone with hints of red (of course) rather than the usual black and white hues I've been sticking with. This post has made me glad I did go down that path.
