NOTD Avon Matte Violetta

This winter Avon released a collection of Matte polishes and I bought some of them, as you could see in my haul yesterday. I like putting on a Matte polish if I don't have a lot of time to do my nails, it dries quick, within a few minutes you can do whatever you want to. I chose the purple one to start with called Violetta. By the way: it's been 3 months since my last NOTD, wow...


Application is a bit tricky because it dries so fast. I need 2 strokes of it to have a full cover. First I tried it with 1 stroke but parts of my nail remained see-through, looking awfull. The second stroke needs to come fast, in order to have a flawless application. After a few nails, you easily get the hang of it - nothing a regular nail applier can't accomplish. It dries a beautifull matte velvet canvas as you can see.

Depending on the lighting the colour appears more blue or more purple with some shimmer. As all matte polishes it easily shows tipwear and last about half a week looking decent...

What's your opinion on matte polishes?

Matte nagellak is niet echt mijn ding, vind het niet mooi bij mij staan. Vind het kleurtje op zich wel mooi!

Aww you really make me want to grab some, but I have too many nail polishes already! I keep telling myself I need at least one matte nail polish...

Ale nu, ik vind het wel leuk. Bedankt alvast :).

I also seem to have enough polishes but there's still room in the box they're in so... Ohno Gaby, you indeed need at least one matte polish. It would be a crime not to have one in such a big collection ;)
