Mani Monday: Bright and Shiny

Avon nail polish in bronze metallic

I received this mini metallic nail polish in a trio gift set, and must say I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these Avon polishes. It's a textured look but smooth to the touch and two coats weren't even necessary (though as I mentioned last month, I always do two plus a top coat). I thought this was a fun, bright, and shiny manicure to finish off the last week of summer. It seems like so many of us are already transitioning to fall with a deeper and darker colour palette, but I'm not ready just yet and want to embrace the last bit of summer. Hope you had a great Monday and if you've got a manicure to show off, share it with me on Twitter, I'd love to check it out!

  1. Love that metallic color! A lot of times metallic polishes streak but this one looks so smooth. I'm all about stretching summer out as well. :)

    1. Haha you and me both! And yes I was definitely surprised by the quality of this polish as well. It's been on for two weeks now and still strong! Thanks for your comment Lauren! :)

    1. I didn't think I would be either, but since I got the trio gift set I figured might as well try them out! No use going to waste, right, and you're right the textured look is awesome. Thanks for hosting and looking forward to linking up again in the future :)

    1. Thanks Ashley! I like how it's got a hint of rose almost and is not too obnoxious of a colour, but still bright and shiny :)

  4. I'm loving that color. I currently have Chanel's Peridot on and it's a lovely metallic shade. Clearly I'm diggin' metallics. Ha!

  6. That is so gorgeous - a very slight rose shade to it. I have a similar Revlon shade that's a favorite :)

    1. Yes it does, good eye! Very subtle but it's definitely not just a regular silver. I've had this polish on for two weeks now and am surprised at how well it's lasted!
