I Live to Shine


NOTD: Avon Dusky Copper

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

We have my first dip into Avon Brushed Metals collection today.

Yes, I know texture nail polish is everywhere these days, but Avon's collection looks quite pretty in the brochure and I thought I should pick some up to try. I don't think they did a bad job at all.

This is Dusky Copper, a dark charcoal texture with multi coloured shimmer. I did one coat with no top coat, which was opaque enough under naked eyes. In closeup, however, bald spots are visible, so I'd suggest two (thin) coats for good colour coverage.

I love it when I can steal the whole show with just one polish. Of course I don't mind layering up colours/ finishes when I want more, but "one polish does it all" is a godsend when it's 11pm and you realize your nails are chipped :)

Wear wise, due to the lack of top coat, Dusky Copper last about a day and a half on me. But if you ask me, I still prefer it without top coat, just so that all the shimmers shine through on top of the rough texture.

My Body Flow instructor noticed my nails one time and asked if she could touch it. She concluded that she couldn't wear textures as she'd pick at them. I guess that's fair :)

And here's the closeup glory.

Dusky Copper, to me, is a good choice in the Brushed Metals range if you like dark shades with character. The grittiness is medium, not as intense/ bumpy as China Glaze's, so it won't overwhelm you.

It is Thursday already, then we (Canadians) have a long weekend. I don't know if Squirt and I will have a Thanksgiving traditional meal, but we'll find some good food to treat ourselves.

Have some good family time, whether it's a holiday for you or not.
