I love the colours by Mavala and found it hard to limit myself, I wanted to buy them all but I ended up getting:
162 Rose Shell
170 Touch of Provence
171 Blue Curacao
181 Blue Mint
Rose shell and blue mint go on extremely streaky. I like the small size as I find it hard to use up nail polish. The staying power of the polishes is good, two coats last me a week. I don't think they're as cheap as everyone else says though as you're paying £5 for 5ml compared to China Glaze, £8 for 15ml or Barry M £4 for 10ml.
Overall, I love the colours but a bit disappointed with the streakiness.

Most of them are pretty good, inexpensive, fun colors, cute packaging and small amount so they you probably won't end up with a large dried out bottle.
So far I've tried
Paris (medium bright pinkish coral)
Rouge forever (deep burgundy)
Izmir, Iceberg (both sheer white)
London (vivid neutral red)
Lemon cream (medium cream yellow)
Next I want to try Violette
I don't like the brush very much though, it's very small.
Most of them were creamy, dried fast and applied evenly (except lemon cream - too streaky)
Lasting power is average to good

I have to say this is the best nail polish I have ever used. Have a big nail polish collection and I just kept on buying more to try and find something that stayed on. Finally I came across this brand.
My other nail polishes (including OPI) are off to the garbage and i'm totally hooked to this product.
It's super long wearing, the colors are really lovely and have a large variety, they are really inexpensive, especially for the quality and apply very smoothly without drying too fast or too slow.

I bought several small bottles of mavala and love them. Colors are great and come out nicely as in the bottle. I was a bitwary about the brush, but it is a decent size. Mostly, i like that i can buy several colours without feeling guilty about the nailpolish drying in the bottle and me not using it enough.

Why do not enough people know about Mavala polishes?! Absolutely cannot fault them, fantastic colours, long wearing, cheap enough to be a regular impulse purchase (£5 in UK) and most of all 3 free! I have an allergy to Tosylamide Formaldehyde Resin (aka Touluene), and so many companies seem to have misleading messages about it (be REALLY careful with OPI as the vast majority of their polishes contain it even though they claim to be 3 free since about 2007), but these definitely are and it's fantastic. And the smaller bottle means you don't have to pay for a colour which will go out of fashion or more polish than you will use before it starts to dry up. Can't say anything bad about them.

Ive been using it from not so long time but it seems really amazing for me! I used 7 different colors and I can say they have great consistency, wide range of colors. I use it with base&top coat and it lasts long, dries enough quickly. Price is reasonable and they are comparable with OPI and are in smaller botles which is better option for me.

I love this line of polishes. I've tried so many and these are by far the best I've ever used. The bottle is a nice small size. The colors are beautiful. I use the base coat by Mavala, then the color polish, one or two coats and the Mavala Colorfix top coat. I can't believe the staying power. Lasts at least a week with normal usage. I can even garden and not get a chip in it. I highly recommend this brand.

Two of my favourite nail polishes are from Mavala. One of them is Magic - the dreamiest, peachiest shade I own...the other is Via Veneto - mauve and grey in perfect balance. I like everything about them including the miniature-like bottles.

I have quite some experience in the nail department. I was a nail biter for decades, then became a fan of claw-like nails, then biter again, and finally I got where I am today; just like to keep my nails strong and nice looking. Throughout this whole thing I found out that Mavala Switzerland, though not cheap (but not high end expensive either) are a very dependable way to go, whether you're looking for nail growth stimulator or fast drying top coat. Nail Color Cream polishes are no exception to that. Simple, no-frills, awesome quality all around.
First of all, the formula is great. It's creamy indeed and goes on buttery smooth and even, with minimal stripes (anyone find a polish that goes on completely without stripes even in the lightest shades,please let me know). The darker/richer shades go on even better and smoother than the lighter ones. Two coats will give you true to bottle, opaque, rich color. I would say it also sets quite quickly, but I also use their fast drying top coat religiously so maybe that's the one doing most of the work.
Second, the brush is one of the best I've encountered. Don't be fooled by the mini bottle, the brush is full sized and efficient. To give you an idea, one strike can cover more of my pinky nail than necessary.
Third, those are reasonably priced for the quality. About €5,20 for a bottle in my country. Yes, you don't get tons of product for the price, sure. But for the quality, I have to say once again, the price is great. Also I'm a fan of the small bottles, because I will rarely stick with a color for a long time. I want to try things all the time and that means a lot of standard sized polishes go bad or lose their consistency before I have the chance go through even half the product. So this one is exactly what I need; small enough for me to be able to finish (at least in theory, because I haven't finished a bottle of this yet) and also very travel/purse friendly.
Last but not least, you get a fine selection of shades. Not every color on the rainbow to be fair - at least not in my country but maybe they have more shades available elsewhere. However they offer any beige, pink,coral,red and purple-based shade I could ever think of, plus some pretty blues, whites and silvers.
To sum things up, I don't think I'll ever stray from these. After all, even if I was willing to pay for the high end polishes, I wouldn't want to end up with tons of large bottles collecting dust on the shelf. This is perfect for my needs.

This is my absolutely favorite nail polish! It lasts all week (yes, whole 7 days my nails are perfect). It dries quickly, but still I use the quick & go from Sally Hansen to set it and make it dry faster. I have tried a lot of nail polishes, but I always come back to mavala. The bottles are small, and thus, easy to take anywhere. There is a huge variety of colours and an affordable price. What else can we want? =)

I own a few Mavala nail polishes in "cream" finish. I prefer to use them over glittery or pearly polishes. The quality is constantly quite good, and with an exceptionally low price too: usually 3,50 eur per bottle. Application is relatively smooth, but if you don't let the polish dry long enough between coats, it can get a bit uneven. I usually need 2-3 coats for my preferred finish, which takes too much time. The finish isn't particularly glossy and tends to look too plain sometimes. However, the staying power is excellent: with base and top coat the polish stays put without chipping or peeling for almost a week. All Mavala nail polishes are free from toluene, formaldehyde and DBP. I will most likely keep using these from time to time.

Love these polishes. Only have two so far, Nice which is a bright orangey-red and Miami, a lovely medium pink. Both almost opaque after one coat and completely opaque after two. Brush is well sized so I can get the nails covered perfectly using the method of three strokes of the brush. Cheap and in a handy small bottle - no need for a huge bottle. And the coats dried super-fast, had the two coats on and Seche Vite on top and all completely dry in about 15 mins or maybe a bit less. Amazing!

I bought a few of their creme colours on special. So far I have tried only Liberty which is a milky beige colour with slight pink undertone. It dried faster than my other polishes (I used with Mavala basecoat 002) but the look was horrible! It applied soo streaky with 2 coats. Unfortunately, you can't get away with a beige that streaks!!!! Not impressed!!!
I will update when I try out the other colours.

I love the mavala polishes! They are easy to apply, and as the price is nothing, one can easily afford bying a new one very often. The cream-formula can differ in quality, many of them need three layers to be opaque, but still it's not a big problem, if you've got the time. The varity of colours is great as well. In all a great product.

This is definitely the best nail polish I've tried to date, stays put (I'm too lazy for top coat) and like other users say, the small bottle is perfect (no waste), that said if you keep the bottle for a while it does tend to get cloggy, so best to use it up quickly... I mainly buy nude colours (though they have an amazing range of darks and brights, all named after cities) - my favourite nude tone is Riga, it looks too pink in the bottle but makes your nails look lovely and fresh, I also tried Arosa but that gave my nails too much of a yellowy smoker's look. With these nude colours one coat is enough, it can look streaky if you do two.

I own many of these - and I truly adore them.
The consistency is great, they are very easy to apply, they dry really quickly - and they have great staying power.
They are always my first choice and I highly recommend them.

Mavala products stay on the hands for 7-10 days and the toes for a month. They are very creamy and easily applied by an amatuer. Excellent polishes-

Mavala is my HG nail color. Better than Lippman, way better than opi or essie. First off, I love the fact that it comes in tiny 5ml bottles - less waste and you can afford to experiment with lots of their sweet colors. Right now I am wearing Macao on my toes (a sassy bright fuchsia) and Nicosia on my hands (light creamy beige-pink with a slight frost, perfect for work). The colors last much longer than my Opi shades, and bottles don't dry out as fast. Mavala doesn't 'streak' when applied, and the color is opaque enough to create a nice even color on the nail. Dries fairly quickly. Brush is easy to use for a perfect 3-stroke application. I have nothing bad to say about Mavala - they rock!

I reallly like these polishes. I've tried them in a number of colours cause my mother's manicurist uses them so she buys them from her all the time. The ones I've bought on my own are glacier and sorbet. Sorbet is one of my favourite polishes ever. I am always looking for the perfect pale pink, and this is as good as they get.
I personally like the tiny little bottles because they are so inexpensive, and you can try a new colour without blowing a ton of money. Plus: the bottle is super cute and looks good in my bathroom!
