When was the last time you finished a nail polish? I don't remember either. Apart from when my bottles become very gunky and I don't think that the remaining contents are worth wasting drops of a precious expensive nail polish thinner, I really don't remember when I last finished a nail polish. If this is you, then Mavala nail polishes could be perfect for you. The little cute bottles contain 5ml of product and you don't feel so bad of buying some, even though your collection is pretty vast.
Before I properly got into nail polish, my favourite polish was the now discontinued Vanity from Miss Sporty, a very sheer polish which would make my nails so prime, proper, clean, elegant. 'Vanity' was of such poor quality, the bottle had to be thrown away, after a month of being opened. First glimpse of Osaka reminded me of Vanity but with an added delightful shimmer.
I might be totally barking the wrong tree here but I would like to think that Mavala inspired themselves from Japanese Cherry Blossoms when they created Osaka.
It must be. The Japanese city Osaka has a Cherry Blossom every Spring, and cherry blossoms are pink.
Doubts on origin of inspiration aside, Osaka is a truly gorgeous sheer pink with an amazing glow. If you can't bear seeing the white of your nails, you will want to avoid to stay Osaka, or use it as a top coat to add a little pink glow to your nails. My photos show 2 coats of Osaka and I like it that. For me Osaka just celebrates the beauty of your natural nail and let it shine through.
A few months ago, I wouldn't have been able to wear this polish as my nails suffered some dark yellow staining, due to some careless behaviour. Seeing the bare and naturally distorted white line of my index finger doesn't me fill me with joy and confidence, but overall I just really feel elegant, delicate and feminine when I wear Osaka.
I find Osaka, apart from bad nail day moments, ultra wearable and I can see myself grabbing for it very often. If I haven't lost the teeny weeny blighter before then, that is.
