When I was bargain shopping with some friends a few months ago, I spotted an old - yet loved brand that I haven't revisited since High School. It's been years since I flipped through Avon's mini catalog of makeup, fashion and even electronics. But I only had one thing on my mind and it was nail polish!
Through Beauty Blogs, Makeup Forums and friends I've heard all good things about Avon's Nailwear Pro Nail Enamel and couldn't wait to test them out myself. Some of the core line colors aren't too spectacular or unique, but the Sparkle shades are worth peeping out.
In the Sparkle Collection is four holiday colors sprinkled with loads of gold shimmer. For the most part, formula is opaque and all my swatches varied between two or three coats.
Check em' out!
Let's start with the best, Golden Twilight. Even though this looks like your standard black with gold shimmer, it's actually in a gorgeous, deep purple-blue (ink) base. Since its opaque, all you'll need is two coats.
Looking at the bottle I thought this might be close to Wagon Trail, but wrong. Golden Twilight has a faint purple/blue base when compared.
Golden Wine is a red wine drenched in gold shimmer. A great holiday color!
Golden Wine also looks great mattified. It takes on a velvet-y appearance.
Golden Rose is a frosty pink rose with gold shimmer.
Gold Nude is a peach/nude/gold combination with gold shimmer. I'm not sure how I feel about this one, it's very different from anything I normally wear. But different can be good!
Overall, great Holiday collection. Nice formula, application and Big 3 Free. Priced on sale now at $2.99 each - you can't beat that. I adore the sparkle based textures and would love to see more shimmers to their Nailwear Pro Line.
Make sure you add the Photo Gallery to your favorites, I have several core line colors I'll be posting soon.
So who loves Avon's Nailwear Pro Line? What do you guys think of the new Sparkle Shades?

I love the two colours that I own... Golden Twilight and Golden Wine. Golden Twilight is definately a prettier and cheaper version of DS Mystery. I might have to go back to the Avon Store for Gold Nude it looks so much prettier in real pictures than it did in the catalog.
