Avon Absinthe

I purchased a few reduced Avon polishes from my Avon Rep the other week, this is the first I decided to try :-)





This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 2 minutes for a coat). It's green with a lovely shimmer to it! It does sparkle in good light, but doesn't look that great in duller light. It is quite pretty though! Lasted okay.

  6. I love Avon polishes! I feel like they're much better than drugstore polishes... great quality for the price :) I like how their brush is flat but not wide like the OPI ones. I agree with Karen I haven't seen this bottle shape either.

  10. Ooh, I like this one! I've found myself drawn to unusual greens and this one is really quite pretty! I like that it's on the sheer side, too.
