Swatch : H&M - No Mambo Jambo

Hi there everyone ! This is just going to be a relatively quick post this evening for a polish I swatched yesterday (knowing that I wouldn't have time to do my nails today), seeing as it's already quite late and I'm reaaaaally super tired today ! Tuesday is my busy day lecture-wise as I go non-stop from 9:00 until 5:00 with just one hour at lunch, so me being tired is completely understandable (justifying my one bad day per week) !

H&M No Mambo Jambo is the first polish I ever owned that was anything other than a creme finish, which makes it pretty special ! The colour is seriously pretty, and the formula and everything was such great quality, considering it's a mainstream brand that isn't necessarily known for it's nail varnish ! Some H&M polishes are better than others, I have 6 different H&M colours altogether and the formula on some of them is really awful, but the good ones are great !

So this polish is a pretty bright turquoise shimmer colour, that glides on easily in just two coats. In these photos I haven't used any topcoat, and you can see that it's really shiny even without it ! The shimmer in this colour shines through as small blue and green particles (you can especially notice the green in the bottle), but also looks quite silvery in certain lights.

All in all I think that No Mambo Jambo is a great Spring/Summer colour, but there's still no excuse not to wear it in winter as well ! I'm totally in love with the colour, and would seriously love to own it in just a plain creme colour.. does anyone have any suggestions as to what polish already exists that would be a great creme alternative ?

So that's all for today everyone, I'll see you all again tomorrow evening ! Have a great day !


  1. Wow that is seriously pretty!:)


  2. Does this chip? I have one blue H&M polish which is awful for chipping, literally an within an hour of application so I'm wary of buying others in case it's the same. It's a great colour though.

  3. I have this and it is really pretty but good golly the STAINING! Serious smurf fingers.

    Margerine...I haven't worn it for ages so I can't say for sure but I don't remember having a particular problem with chipping. That might depend on top/base coats to some extent though...

    1. Cool thanks :) I mainly use Barry M 3-in-1 top/base coat which might not be strong enough to combat the staining!

  4. Lovely color and quality for a small price I think.
