Sadly, no, I am still in London. But a girl can dream right? Recently, the brights have been making a come-back in my life, and coincidentally – two of them have the word ‘Vegas’ in them! Ok, much less exciting than glamorous casinos and wild nightlife, but it’s getting there..
These are Mavala Vegas Pink nail polish from their Art Collection and MAC’s Vegas Volt lipstick. These two are pretty friggin’ bright, and things that have been dormant over the winter months.
Now I have a love-hate relationship with Vegas Volt – the love part being the sheer mental-ness and lunacy of the colour. It’s just so eye-catching, youthful and summery! The hate part is that it’s a pain to get it to work, because it has a habit of making the rest of my face ashy. So I often pair this with warmer products like MAC’s eyeshadow in Woodwinked and yellow-er toned bronzers. Another slight dislike is that because it’s an amplified finish, it has a nightmare of being bright but creamy at the same time – any transfers onto skin or teeth will be seen, no escapes!
But now that I’ve figured out how to wear this, I imagine it will be making multiple appearances in the coming months 🙂
Mavala Vegas Pink was one of my most worn nailpolishes over the summer, because it is just girly giggles in nail polish form. It’s a mid-tone pink and incredibly bright and fun. Mavala formulas are one of my favourites – it’s up there with OPI and Rimmel, as they are incredibly pigmented and relatively fast-drying. Their shade range is decent, and their newest spring collection is absolutely adorable!
So yes. Colour is making its way back into my life, and I’m embracing it with open arms. I’ve yet to pull out the likes of MAC Girl About Town or Please Me, or Bobbi Brown’s Bikini Pink out yet but I’ll be sure to make a conscious effort to give them all a go when I develop a nice tan – fake or real :P.
Have you been embracing brights yet?
