Celebrating 60 years of MAVALA with a great competition!

Iconic nail care brand MAVALA heads back to the 60’s to celebrate its Diamond Anniversary in style.

World leading natural nail care brand MAVALA is celebrating its diamond anniversary in 2019; honouring 60 years of the company’s iconic gold topped mini colours and results-driven nail care. To celebrate the brand’s heritage, MAVALA will be heading back to the 60s by launching a new and limited edition Polka Dot Cosmetics Bag packed full of the brands iconic and most popular products including Oil Seal Dryer, Protecting Hand Cream, Base Coat, Colour Fix and Mild Nail Polish Remover. 

Filled with bestsellers, the retro purse promises to transform the health of hands and nails in just a few steps. The Oil Seal Dryer is a multi-purpose treatment that speeds up the drying process of polish whilst hydrating the cuticles and the skin around the nail plate. Give hands some real TLC with the Protecting Hand Cream, a much-loved product that softens and protects hands with a light, non-greasy feel. MAVALA’S classic Base Coat is an essential step that ensures colour does not stain the nail plate, whilst Colour Fix is a glossy, high-shine top coat that helps to lock the polish’s pigment in, maintaining its brightness whilst also protecting from chipping. When it comes to taking it all off and starting again, the Mild Nail Polish Remover is a gentle yet highly effective way of removing colour. Simply swipe over the nail for a super-quick removal. 


MAVALA was founded in 1959 by Margaret Van Landeghem, a lab worker who longed for products to help strengthen her weak, flaking nails. 60 years later, MAVALA products are sold in over 100 countries worldwide and UK shoppers will find over 260 different shades of the iconic Mini Colours. At 5ml each, these mini bottles provide ten manicures’ worth of polish so not a drop of colour is wasted – perfect for travelling and a must-have in the kits of celebrity nail artists across the globe.

MAVALA’S philosophy has always been to put nail care first and let beauty follow, which is why the brand is commemorating 60 years of success with a bundle of care products.
