As much as I love a deep purple, even I occasionally dip into the mid tone lavender shades for summer. Iris from Mavala is the perfect mani and pedi shade for a purple obsessive like me. Whether my nails are long or short I can apply and reapply Iris regardless of what colour my outfit is, what makeup I’m wearing or I am attending a formal or casual event.
Because Iris is not a white based shade, it does not look chalky on my rich skintone and yet it definitely feels like a warm weather shade. I am a fan of Mavala – the dinky sized polishes mean I can dip into shades that fall outside of my imperial purple preference.
Opaque in two coats, with a medium shine finish despite the fact that this shade tends to chip rather than shrink it is one of my favourite summer shades.
