Random Spam with China Glaze, Mavala and Sally Hansen

I have another quick random spam post for you guys today, this time with polishes from China Glaze, Mavala and Sally Hansen. If you are not familiar with random spam posts, I like to use these to post about some polishes that I feel like aren't maybe interesting enough for separate posts. This doesn't necessarily mean that I don't like the polishes or that they are somehow bad, usually I just have something more interesting to post about (like manicures with nail art or some other nail design).

So first off, I have China Glaze Hello Gorgeous!, three coats, no base or top coat. The name really suits this polish as it is really a gorgous light pink glitter. The first picture is taken in shade, the two after that are in sunlight. This was really a hard one to capture and it looks way better in real life than in my pictures. It's so much more sparkly and vivid than my pics made it look like.
 



Next off is Mavala Roma* (why Roma and not Rome?). I have two coats here with base and top coat. I got this polish from the goodie bag from our meeting and I was really interested in trying out these Mavala polishes as I have heard mainly bad things about them. Roma was a pretty decent polish, though I'm a bit disappointed with it as it first made me think that it was just an amazing red with really awesome formula. It covered nicely with just two coats and the color is really vivid, but it bubbled like crazy. I used it as a base color for my foil manicure, so it didn't really matter, but I think this won't become my go to red as I already have other red polishes with better formula. Maybe I could use this to do some frankening though...
 


Then the last one is Sally Hansen Lustre Shine polish called Scarab*, I have two coats here, no base or top coat. I got this one also from the goodie bag and I'd say I liked this way better than the Mavala one. It's not the color that I would be choosing first for my self, but it is still very pretty and it had really nice formula. It coveres with just two coats and it's not too brush stroke-y, at least not for me. Of course with this type of polish, there are always some visible brush strokes.
