Mavala - Cedar Green

Very dark pine green jelly with secret shimmer

Gah - 3 weeks without a post!  How did that happen?!  Well, I was on holiday for part of the time, a wondeful 5-day trip to Finnish Lapland with my beloved and the youngest step son (aged 13) but the rest of the time, I really don't have a reason.  I just lost my posting mojo.  Did lots of swatching though!

So to get back in the saddle here's Mavala's Cedar Green

Mavala Cedar Green

As you can see it's a super dark green with a fairly hidden secret shimmer.  I'd say the colour is a smidge more green/less black IRL but it's still pretty damn dark!

I'd describe Cedar Green as a pine/cedar green jelly with slight silver secret shimmer
It was very streaky on first coat, overall a bit tricky to work with and took 3 coats to really even out

Swatch is 3 coats with top coat

Apart from the streaky/jelly issues application was ok, the tiny bottle/tiny brush seems to work well for me.

And apologies for the stumpy pinkie - I know I should cut them all back when I break one but I find it really hard to do that!
