Avon Diamond Sparkle - Night Violet

I picked this up in the sale recently. It's from the Diamond Sparkle range (hence the different bottle shape), but there is also the same polish from the regular range that I think is very similar looking!




This is okay to use and okay to apply. The formula is a bit runny and awkward to work with. Drying time was okay (2-3 minutes a coat). The brush is okay though. It's a nice purple colour with a subtle shimmer. BUT this colour leans towards brown too much for my liking - and as you know, I'm not a big fan of browns! Lasted really well.

Rating
Easy to use = 7/10
Application = 6/10 runny formula
Drying time = 8/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = shimmery
Removal = okay
Overall = 7/10
Purchased from = Avon rep

My Personal Rating = 6.5/10 :-)

  1. Sexy shade. It is slightly brown, but in a nice, tasty way :) Not exactly my hue, you know that, but it's OK.

  7. The colour is really nice. The problem I see, is that there are some slight gaps. So coverage doesn't seem to be too good.

    Kind regards,
    Elena
