Avon - Green with Envy

The last of my Avon's - Green with Envy. Not a very original name but I think the colour is a little more unusual.

Green with Envy is a very dark green creme, like a school blackboard. It is very dark green but for me never looked black, but perhaps that's the view of a polish colour obsessive!

This swatch is 2 coats, the formula was great and look how shiny it is without a topcoat.

Overall I think the Avon's are good quality polishes, with somewhat unusual colours for a great price (on sale) - but actually not a bad polish for the full price either, especially given the size of the bottles.

Avon - Decadance

Another Avon Nailwear Pro, Decadance

I love this one, it did cause some problems as you'll see but such a gorgeous polish

Decadance is a purply pink shimmer with pink and purple fine glitter.  I think it looks gorgeous in the sunlight.

This is 2 coats and I'm afraid not the neatest swatch - check out that big bubble/blob on my ring finger. Basecoat but no top coat

Another oddity - this was my last swatch of the day, I went to bed 7 hours after this swatch and woke up another 7 hours later with sheet marks! So I think it's fair to say without a fast drying top coat this is not a fast dryer!

Avon - Dynamo

Next up from the Avon Nailwear Pro range is Dynamo

Dynamo is a medium pink, slightly purply, slightly dusky foil
This is 2 coats, no topcoat

It's pretty but not massively unique I don't think.

Again application and formula were great.  And as you can see they're big bottles for your £3!

Avon - Splendid Blue

Shortwidenails asked me to swatch the Avons I recently posted haul pictures of, so here goes.

First up is Splendid Blue

Splendid Blue is a dark blue with sparkly blue, turquoise and silver shimmer
This is 2 coats with no topcoat.

It's a really lovely polish, the sparkle is always visible but still subtle.  Application and formula were top.  Overall a great polish for a great price (I got these half price from the Avon site for £3 each)

Anyone else tried any of these?
