I WON! - 5 Jacava London Nail Varnishes

I was lucky enough to win 5 nail varnishes of my choice from the lovely Gemma over at Flutter and Sparkle. They are from a brand I have never heard of before, called Jacava.
Here is a little bit of information about Jacava, taken from their website "Opulent nail polish, by JACAVA London, is the world's first '8-free' nail varnish. That's free from DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Toluene, Collophane, Parabens, Phthalates and Animal Ingredients. We never test on Animals.
All JACAVA nail polish uses premium, high gloss, long-lasting and nourishing formulation helps your nails stay stronger and grow longer. Designed in London and made in the UK, JACAVA is a quintessentially British nail polish brand." 
Lots of big words there but they sound good right?! I couldn't wait to test them out.
They had a range of nail varnishes to choose from but in the end I decided on (from L-R) Crimson Crush, Candy Floss, Sardinan Summer, Blackberry fool and Blueberry Muffin.
They have a long golden lid which is perfect for application and it makes it easier to hold. The brush is long and thin, again making it easier to apply. The nail varnish consistency itself is like any other nail varnish. It applies smoothly and you only need 2 coats. The one thing I did notice though is that there wasn't much of that 'typical overpowering' nail varnish smell, which was a big tick in my books! I guess that's one of those big words up there that it doesn't contain!
All of the shades had such a gorgeous glossy finish with Sardinian Summer having a slight shimmer to it.
After swatching the shades, I wish I had picked a different range of colours as they are all quite pink but hey, that's typical me picking all pinks hehe. Crimson Crush and Candy floss are quite similar in colour but candy floss is slightly redder. Sardianin Summer is a lovely bright pink with shimmer. Blackberry Fool is a gorgeous rich berry like shade which is very creamy. My favourite has to be Blueberry Muffin which is a lovely pastel bluey lilac. Perfect for the Spring/Summer and very on trend!

Jacava are priced at £14.50 each and are available here.
Have you tried Jacava nail varnishes?
