Today I have some swatches of some pretty Avon colors I got from my mom-on-law. It had been sooo long since I last tried an avon polish. As a matter of fact I remmber the last Avon polish i had was a Golden one and it came in a round bottle. It had a terrible sticky formula that took forever to dry and I always managed to smudge it. Well, this was YEAARS ago and I'm happy to see they have made some changes to the bottles and the formula as well. On to some colors!
First is Vivid Violet. This one reminds me of my one my favorite O.P.I's (that I don't own ATM) Plugged in Plum.Vivid Violet is a pretty Purple shimmer with some slight Pink undertones. In Sunlight it has these pretty Blue flashes that you can't see in any other light. The formula on this is slightly sheer but flows nicely. I only did Two coats for these pictures but I'm thinking now a Third one would have looked even better.
This one is called Gunmetal. It could not have a more perfect name. This one is a true Gunmetal shimmer. I love this because every time I have picked up a polish tha looked like this it ends up going on the nail like a frosty, brushstrokey mess (I'm lookin at you China Glaze Avalanche). Not this baby! This goes on smooth, shimmery and even. This is Two coats, no top coat.
And finally we have Blue Shock. A pretty, icy shade of Electric Blue shimmer. This one has an extremely sheer formula and what you see here is Three coats (probably could have gotten away with a Fourth). I actually really like this color. It's refreshing and it almost looks like the polish is floating on my nails.
Overall, I am really happy with these. I really, really LOVE Vivid Violet. I also really love the brush on these Avon polishes. It was soft, just the right lenght and slightly flattened so it made the application super easy and quick. These Three color have good formulas and I'm happy to have them in my collection.
