Want the Best Mauve Acrylic Nails in Town? Try Out These Top 3 Best Mauve Nail Polishes!

Similar to lavender and lilac, mauve is another derivative of purple, but more subtle and unusual than the rich, plush color we all know so well. Suggesting that the wearer is unconventional in their thought processes and decision making, mauve is indicative of openness and honesty, possessing a slightly reserved sense of luxury and elegance. 

The lover of all things mauve doesn’t need to follow a trend or fashion – they walk their own path, having a distinctly individual sense of style and taste. Generous to a fault, intuitive and spiritual are all traits are suggested by mauve. Not sure why I love it so much then!

 

1) OPI Polish – Somewhere Over The Rainbow Mountain

What Makes it Great

With hints of a plum-like bloom, OPI’s SOTRM is lush and decadent. Evoking feelings of romantic nostalgia and rose gardens at dusk, this beautifully subtle shade would complement any skin tone and goes well with purple and yellow. When worn with lime green, it is simply stunning! It didn’t chip until well into the second week of wear. 

Where it Could be Improved

I needed to apply two coats to achieve the opacity I wanted.

2) Sally Hansen Nail Polish – Mauve-Olous

What Makes it Great

This polish is more of a rose mauve, with subtle touches of dusky pink. Bolder than other mauves, it lends nails a glorious and elegant look that’s timelessly stylish. Like all Sally Hanson products, this is rich, smooth and self-leveling, and lasted nearly two weeks. Upon removal, I did notice that my natural nails appeared healthier and more moisturized than with other polishes. 

Where it Could be Improved

Whilst applying this polish, the brush dropped a couple of hairs onto my wet nails. Fortunately, thanks to a pair of tweezers, the issue was soon rectified.

The Final Verdict

Mauve-Olous just cries out to be worn. It’s bold, but gentle and very hard to ignore. Perfect!

3) essie Nail Color Polish, Island Hopping

 

What Makes it Great

This beautiful color is formulated without the most harmful chemicals found in many other polishes. Not only that, but being breathable, it ensures your nail beds remain as healthy as possible. Mine looked great after wearing this shade for almost two weeks – smooth and flexible, not brittle or cracked at all. 

Where it Could be Improved

Removing this polish took more time than I anticipated, but once it started to release, it came down with ease. It has a tendency to stain your fingernails, so make sure you use a base coat before you apply it to protect your nailbed.
