Nothing shouts out Summer like bright neon-like colours. Summer is a time for fun and a time for being a bit crazy. The latest Mavala mini nail polish collection fully embraces this playful attitude.

Penelope, my pool inflatable flamingo, fully approves of these Summery Mavala Bubble Gum Collection shades too and I couldn’t resist taking a photo of them meeting each other!
Mavala Bubble Gum Nail Polish Shades
There are six fun, neon-like bold and shiny shades in the Mavala Bubble Gum Collection including:
- 342 Very Cherry – a blasting pink
- 343 Blueberry – a shocking blue
- 344 Lemon Drop – a bubbly yellow
- 345 Orange Sherbet – a juicy orange
- 346 Green Apple – an amazing green, &
- 347 Big Bubble – a cotton candy pink.
You can wear each shade on it’s own or you can add some extra fun by inventing your own playful pop style design. My nail polish design skills are fairly limited but even this simple dot design adds an element of Summer playfulness to any outfit.
When applying this nail polish I use a base coat and top coat to further increase the longevity of my nail polish. All photographed swatches in this post are of two coats of polish and no base coat nor top coat.
There are now more than 200 Mavala mini nail polish shades available. Click HERE to check out all the Mavala nail polish sets, Mavala nail polish colours and other Mavala nail products.
Mavala Nail Polish Review
Mavala nail polishes all come in cute mini bottles with golden octagonal lids.
The advantages of the mini bottle include a handy purse sized product, a cheaper price meaning you can buy more different shades and the fact that you’re also more likely to use up the whole nail polish with no waste in one season.
I like the short yet wide brush size which allows more control over the brush upon application.
Mavala nail polishes dry relatively quickly and have long lasting shine and hold.
I recommend two coats of these polishes as one looks a bit streaky, although I do like the more transparent one coat look of these Mavala nail varnishes.
