When I received this sparkly sequined purple bag I was already sold on in fact what was inside was pretty nice too! I was sent the crazy Avon mascara I can’t wait to test out along with three polishes, Avon Metallic Effects Nail Enamel in Jade Reflection*, Icy Purple* and Copper Gleam*.
As far as I can tell, this purple bag has nothing at all to do with these polishes but it was so pretty I posed them together anyway! Avon Metallic Effects Nail Enamel finish is a traditional metallic finish that’s super shiny and requires ONLY ONE COAT. That’s right, when I tested Avon Metallic Effects Nail Enamel in Jade Reflection, Icy Purple and Copper Gleam all the shades gave perfect full coverage with only one coat.
In case it’s not obvious, no including my pinkie nail the polishes go from Avon Metallic Effects Nail Enamel in Jade Reflection on my ring finger, to Icy Purple on my middle finger, to Copper Gleam on my index (and pinkie) nail. In these photos I’m wearing one coat, no top coat. That’s easy polishing! Although all metallic polishes are to an extend, I don’t find the Avon Metallic Effects Nail Enamel to be very obvious on the brushstrokes, or at least I’m distracted by it from the super shiny and metallic finish. However it does highlight any imperfections on the nails, but luckily mine are in okay shape at the moment. The formula is smooth and very easy to apply, it also dries pretty quickly.
While I think Avon Metallic Effects Nail Enamel in Jade Reflection, Icy Purple and Copper Gleam are fun to wear as a skittle manicure, but once I tried these out I knew exactly what they would be perfect for–stamping. I haven’t really done much nail stamping since my initial experiment with it, but these shades are so opaque they would be perfect for it so I’m definitely inspired to pull out my plates again.
What do you think of metallic nail polish? There are two other shades available, Platinum Petal and Gold Leaf but I really like the three shades I received.
