Hi everyone! A few weeks ago I bought some Avon’s Gel Strength Base Coat when it was on super sale and shipping was free. Well I fell in love with it, so I wanted to try some of their actual polishes. Like the base coat, these were on sale ($2.99 ea.) and shipping was free. (I also used mypoints and got 25 points per dollar!) The Cosmic Polishes are supposed to give a “holographic pearl effect.” Let’s be honest, if you’ve ever bought anything from avon.com then you know their online “swatches” are pretty much useless. Meaning you really don’t get any sort of good idea what the color actually looks like…it’s kind of like a gamble. (I’ve always hated this about avon’s website) ANYWAY…
Let’s get to the swatches and review!
(*Note: The formula of all of these is pretty thin and very easy to work with.) Celestial, a light dusty blue, was somewhat sheer. I had to use 3 coats to get the opacity I wanted. It’s very pretty and almost “serene” like…I love it.
Like Celestial, Radiant is also somewhat sheer and took 3 coats to become opaque and not show the nail whites. It’s a pretty muted gold shade.
Starburst is a vibrant magenta shade. It is more opaque than the pervious 2 and only took 2 coats to get great coverage. I love this color it’s like a mix of pink and purple, I don’t have anything like it!
Lastly is Saturn, a warm coppery orange. This shade also only took 2 coats to become opaque. I think this would be a great shade for fall/ halloween!
Overall, with the price I paid, I am fairly happy with these. They look slightly nicer in person and are defiantly a “pearly finish”…(I just wish they were more sparkly.) FYI: There are only a few shades left (I think they are being discontinued.) I do however want to mention since using their Get Strength base coat, my nails have been SO strong and healthy. Seriously, I have used many nail treatments and base coats and this is by far my favorite. When I bought it I paid $1.99 it’s now $6.50, but I would still buy it for that price! 🙂
So, I want to know…have you tried any Avon nail products, or do you have a favorite Avon product in general? I’d like to know for next time their free shipping promo comes up!
