MUA Nail Polish

MUA Nail Polish


My first MUA buy was the single eye shadows, when MUA was first in Superdrug. I also bought bronzer, face powder, blusher and mascara, as back then I had only just stopped biting my nails. But since then I must have bought every shade of nail polish in the old style bottle :) So when MUA announced they were revamping the bottle I was excited. I had bought some of the newer colours in the old style bottle, and at first was only planning on buying the colours I liked, Lush Lilac and Bold Blue. But, as MUA nail polish is a great buy, and Superdrug have a 3 for 2 offer, I bought more :) as well as three magnetic and two Mystical Glitter. The Love Heart Collection water marble really well, and I was keen to see how the normal polish would. So after swatching all the new bottles I have, and a few old ones, I tried water marbling. Also tried with the Mystical Glitter, and Magnetic, just to see. The results were fantastic :) The newer £1 bottle works better than the old one, although the polish will still spread in the water. Mystical Glitter and Magnetic were just as awesome :)

Stormy Skies, All Nude, Amaretto Crush, Deepest Purple, Bright Coral, Bright Pink, Lush Lilac and Bold Blue.

Frozen Yoghurt, Plum Noir, Shade 22, Top Coat, Shade 1 and Pistachio Ice Cream.

Magnetic: Regent Street, Mayfair and Piccadilly Circus. Mystical Glitter: Mermaid and Jellyfish.

Frozen Yoghurt, Plum Noir, Shade 22, Top Coat, Shade 1 and Pistachio Ice Cream, Stormy Skies, All Nude, Amaretto Crush, Deepest Purple, Bright Coral, Bright Pink, Lush Lilac and Bold Blue.

Water Marble: Stormy Skies, All Nude, Bold Blue and Shade 1.

Water Marble: Frozen Yoghurt, Shade 22, Plum Noir, Deepest Purple and Lush Lilac.

Now just look at how awesome these water marbling designs are, using the Magnetic and Mystical Glitter :)

Now I'm no water marbling expert, but I know that not all glitter polishes spread well in the water, so I was happily surprised when these did, and the two colours compliment each other beautifully. Trying the Magnetic polish was just out of curiosity, as obviously you use the magnet on the lid of the bottle to create a pattern, and water marbling with them, you don't need to use the magnet. Was really happy that all three colours spread so so well in the water, and the final outcome is the design looks somewhat metallic. This is a must for a manicure soon :) 
Would love to hear what you think, just comment below :)

  3. Oh wow, these are amazing! :D I've never tried water marbling, but it sounds complicated :P How easy/difficult is it? I might try it in the summer when I'm not supposed to be revising anymore XD

    1. It's not hard at all. I use a paper cup and bottled water at room temperature. As long as the polish you use drips easily from the brush, it should spread in the water. Drip colours in one by one, till you have rings of colours. Use an orange stick to gently draw design and dip your fingers in. Clean remaining polish then take your finger out the water. I tape around my fingers so less to clean up. Xx
