Jacava Chocolate Melts Review

Hi all!

Today I have a review/swatch of a polish I was sent by the company Jacava. To find out more about this company visit their site here all their polishes are DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde and Toluene free, and they don't test on animals either.

I chose Chocolate Melts to try out. It was between that and Cappuccino Cream as I was really wanting to try one of their browns.

Dry time was really good, as was coverage. I have two thin coats on my index finger, and two thicker coats on the rest. Can you notice how squishy the thicker coats look? These are taken in various lighting, without base coat, and without top coat. Look at that shine!

This is how warm this polish looks most of the time, this picture was taken with the flash on my camera.

Horrible overcast daylight. I think you can see the slight colour difference between the thin and thick coats here.

From this, and what I've seen of Jacava's other polishes I think most of their creme finishes are going to be more of a Creme-Jelly love child polish, a little bit squishy but with great coverage, and amazing shine.

Over all I'm impressed by polish formula, I really like the bottle and the handle, and the colour really is the perfect chocolate shade, and I know I'm gonna reach for this when I need this kind of warm milky brown.

These polishes retail for £14.50, but there's currently a 3 for 2 offer on.

Hope you're all having a good Saturday! :]

  1. gorgeous color!! the name is delicious as well :)

  2. That really is a chocolately color - looks good on you!

  3. What a beautiful shade :D I love how it looks on you!

  4. My mum's a nail tech and she reckons she's developed asthma from using cheap polishes - I'll recommend this to her (I love her, and think she'll let me borrow some, if I remind her!)

    1. I've heard people get irritated by really strong cheap polishes. Do it you won't be disappointed with them :]
