A Very Wicked Girl with Very Wicked Nails

Avon sent me some gorgeous treats yesterday, one of which was this dark and sultry nail polish. It begged for immediate application.

The shade is called 'wicked' and it's tricky to photograph in a way that does it justice (and my toes certainly don't  sorry about that). In the bottle the polish looks like shimmery black-red but once applied it's more like dark chocolate brown with a hint of burgundy/red. Often these types of colours look dark in the bottle but light and wishy-washy on the nail. Well, my friends, this is the opposite – you get perfect coverage in just one coat. I love it. It's really unusual and the warm tone is more flattering on pale skin than black.

Having had a look at the Avon website I see that Nailwear Pro polishes are on offer for £3! That's a ruddy bargain! I haven't had chance to see how it wears but I'll update this post and let you know in a few days. It certainly gets my vote in terms of colour, coverage and application.


I love reading your comments!
