I decided to try Avon again, and ordered some polishes from my friend Alyssa from Pretty Little Bottles.
This is pretty pix heavy, so I put all the lovelies after the jump!
First up, Night Violet. I love vampy colors that don't look black. This is a dark wine shimmer that applied nicely. Two coats, no topcoat:
I thought the perfect glitter accompaniment would be The Polish Bar Shirley. I love the play between the dark red, black, and pink glitters. The Polish Bar makes great glitters - I've liked all the ones I've tried so far.
I chose another Polish Bar to go over Empower. This is Oceanside, a mix of blues and silver glitter. Perfect for Shark Week, or any other time!
Deluxe Chocolate looks good enough to eat. Molten brown shimmer!
The Avon colors are rich, saturated, and easy to apply. They do take a long time to dry on me, and even more time with glitter. I'm not used to polishes being so dentable for so long. I'm pretty clumsy, so I dinged up my manicures a lot before they dried. I lliked the colors and combinations a lot, though, so I may have to try a different base or top coat to see if that makes a difference.
More Avon tomorrow! Have you tried Avon polishes yet?
