New Must Have Nails: Avon Violetta

I was lucky enough to be given a bottle (well I was actually given a few, but this is the only one truly worth a note!) of Avon's upcoming Matte Nail Polish in Violetta at a press event yesterday and I have to say, this has already secured it's place amongst my 'must have' nail polishes.


This beautiful metallic-matte purple really is an eye catcher. I normally don't go for Matte finish polishes, choosing to use a Matte top coat instead to save a few pennies, but this really is worth shelling out for. The consistency is thick and applies really well. It dries in a flash, but (as with many Avon polishes) isn't great on the chipping front but this can be avoided by finishing it off with a decent top coat. I'd recommend Rimmel's Pro Matte Top Coat, as used in these photos (along with OPI Ridge filler and two coats of Violetta!)



The one downside? It is a nightmare to photograph. I think the first snap (with flash) captures it the best, showing it's slight metallic quality.


The other colours in the range include a pretty navy ('Inky Blue') and a plain grey ('Cement Grey'), but this is the only colour that really stands out as a must have to me. The Matte Nail Enamel collection is available from the 23rd December, priced at £6 each.


What's the verdict girls? Will any of you be picking this up at Christmas?

  10. It's lovely but definitely prefer the top picture, as it is far more navy like and looks much richer in comparison to the other shots....hmmm...to invest, or not to invest??
