Hello lovelies! I have a very pretty blue polish for you today 🙂 before I got into polish properly I used to ALWAYS wear Barry M Navy, so for the last 2 years or so I’ve largely avoided shimmery darker blues. I feel like this one is a good one to get me back into it, I really love the vibrancy of this colour.
Jacava London is a British nail polish brand, which is 8-Free. This means it is free from: Formaldehyde, Toluene, Camphor, Collophane, Parabens, Dibutyl-Pthalate, Pthalates and Animal Ingredients. It is also cruelty free. What more could you ask of a nail brand! 😀 It also has 22 Carat gold printing on the bottle…fancy!
I’m not going to lie, the first coat was pretty bad. Streaky, dragging, pooling at the cuticles and patches everywhere, and somehow it got a little lumpy as well. The second coat did help to even it out a bit but it definitely needed a topcoat because it dried a little dull and bumpy. With a topcoat to seal it all off though it’s pretty good! Dry time was average, and coverage at 2 coats was opaque. I think with the right application it’s a good polish. For example, make sure your basecoat is bone dry before you apply the polish because it will reduce dragging issues.
Overall I enjoyed this polish a lot, and I definitely like the 8-free and cruelty free selling points. Midnight’s Secrets is available on Jacava.com, Feelunique.com and Amazon.com, for £14.50. Jacava London are also running a 10% off code until 7th July, just enter WIMBLEDON at the checkout 🙂
What do you think? I love what the brand is doing in terms of reducing the toxicity of the polish, and of course I am always a huge fan of anything that’s cruelty-free 🙂
