NOTW - Mecca - Love

This weeks Nail Of The Week is a delightful red shade from Mecca called 'Love'. 

This colour was available from Mecca Cosmetics in a cute little 2 pack called 'From Paris With Love' around February 2011, so unfortunately I don't think it's available to buy anymore (unless you can find it hidden somewhere in the big world of the internet or ebay - sorry readers). But despite that, it's definitely one of my favourite reds that I own. 

It's a step under a bright red, and has a little hint of a creamy coral in direct sunlight. So pretty! And the formula with Mecca nail polish is always perfect. It's not too thick like some of the Kit nail polish can be, but I still got the colour above with only one coat believe it or not! 

I also got a little bored yesterday and layered some Essie - As Gold As It gets over the top as can be seen in the picture below. 

It's a nice little combination, but definitely not a favourite for me. It feels a little too much like a Christmas nail personally with the gold and red combination, but a nice way to soften such a bold colour if that's what you're after. :)  

Mecca nail polish is available in Mecca Cosmetica stores Australia wide for $22 for a single bottle and their colour range is not huge, but I love every single colour they produce I swear. For your nearest store you can check here, or you can order online from their website here too

The Essie nail polish is part of the Luxe Effects collection, and I purchased mine from They're a great website for cheaper nail polish, but the postage does take a long time and we've had a few orders come back wrong now, so just keep that in mind. Maybe you might be able to find them on ebay under a more reputable seller? 

What do you think of these colours? Have you tried Mecca Nail Polish before? x


  1. Oooh, that actually looks gorgeous. never actually heard of Mecca polish before though!

    1. Mecca is an Australian brand so I'm not sure that they stock it overseas anywhere. Hopefully the online shop lets you post to you if you love it!

  2. Wow what an amazing colour! Watch out Mecca make up stand I'm coming for you :P
