About Me

My photo
I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. I have also started wildlife photography, which I enjoy very much. Welcome to my little world :-)

Avon Powdery Mauve

This is one I got from a girl at work, she gave me a good few of the old Avon ones.
It's one from the Color Trend range, which tend to be a bit cheaper than the others. I'd say it's purple/red.
Indoors with flash.

And without flash, but under a light :-p

I tried my best to capture this colour. All above are 2 coats. It was easy to use and easy to apply. The formula was quite thick, but I think that's because it's old - though it didn't display any signs of use. 1 coat would have done but I did 2. It took a while to dry but gave a good finish. The brush with this range of Avon is pretty good too.

My only concern with this one is that it scuffed easily, so a top coat is required and when I wear it again I'll be putting a top coat on! What me :-p!

7 out of 10. Probably eBay would be the place to get this because I've not seen in the catalogue or website.


  1. it looks far better on the nail than in the bottle. its lovely!

  2. Thanks. It does look better on. You never really know until it's on the nail, just how good it looks!
