Over the last couple of weeks there has been one polish and one polish only that has adorned my finger nails and that's Pink Whisper from new nail polish brand Jacava.
|Jacava London Pink Whisper Nail Polish and UV Inhibitor Top Coat*|
Jacava London are a premium nail polish brand that are designed and made in the UK. All of their polishes are non toxic, never tested on animals and are vegan friendly. They also have an exclusive '8 Free' formula, meaning that they are free from DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Toluene, Cellophane, Parabens, Phthalates and Animal Ingredients. The Jacava polishes are designed to have a high gloss, long lasting finish with a nourishing formulation that helps your nails to stay strong and grow.
The Jacava polishes look gorgeous, they have a long gold coloured handle that is really easy to hold; not fiddly like some of the polishes I've used. The glass bulb that contains the polish is see through and has 22 carat gold printing on the front, which I think is a little unnecessary, however I can forgive that as the brush is fantastic. It reaches right down to the bottom of the bottle, avoiding any bottle tipping when the polish is running low and getting gloopy. Whilst the brush on one of my polishes was a little bent, I do think that they are brilliant and I can cover my rather large nail beds in three strokes, one in the centre and one either side.
Pink Whisper is a gorgeous baby pink polish. It is a very subtle hint of pink with a milky appearance, making it look super sophisticated, polished and put together. I think that light pink nails look great all year round and they go with any outfit choice, particularly a grey ensemble.
The Pink Whisper polish looks really clean and tidy and whilst I've used it as a full nail colour, it would also look great as a base for a French manicure, another polished, put together look.
The Jacava polish applied really evenly and was quick to dry, just as quick as my favourite Models Own polishes, if a little quicker, and they look really glossy when they're dry. I only used two coats on my nails, together with the Top Coat Nail Polish with UV Inhibitor for added shine. I found that the top coat also dried really quickly and applied smoothly without dragging the Pink Whisper underneath.
My nails were painted and looking pristine within a matter of minutes which gives these polishes a huge thumbs up in my book. Waiting for my nail polish to dry is the bane of my life and I always end up smudging them so finding a nail polish brand that is fast drying is something exciting for me and my beauty loving brain.
The Jacava nail polish lasted a good week on my nails before I needed to change the polish. My nails were mostly chip free, except from some visible wear on the tips of my nails which is not surprising as I always have busy hands- particularly over the last couple of week as I've been spring (well, winter) cleaning my house.
All Jacava polishes are in over 400 salons and pharmacies in the UK but if you prefer shopping online then they're also available direct from their website, on Amazon and on Feel Unique. Each polish is £14.50, although I believe they're slightly cheaper on Amazon, which I think is a fair price for such a good quality product, especially seen as though they are just as good as my OPI polishes, if not better and they're around a similar price too.
Finding a nail polish that is going to suit you is super easy as Jacava have an innovative, 'try it on' colour selector that enables you to easily see how a swatch of the polish would look on hands similar to your own skin tone and nail length. You could also check out their Facebook Page, Twitter and Pinterest where they have lots of swatches too.
