Avon and NOX Twilight

:) It's only one day to my favorite holiday (and two days til my birthday), Ground Hog's Day!
I'm just joshing you. :) It's not my favorite holiday but I do enjoy everyone getting excited over something so silly.
Anyway, today I'm sharing some swatches of two Avon polishes I picked up at an Avon store while vacationing with my boyfriend. I also wanted to show you the NOX Twilight polishes I picked up in the clearance bin at Meijers. Neither of these polishes are very relevant but yeah.

Lagoon and Splendid Blue.

This is 3 coats of Lagoon.

Lagoon is a very sheer light blue shimmer polish. It also seems a bit duochromey.

It's a spring color to me. And I'm not sure if I like the color against my skin tone.

:)

This is 1 coat of Splendid Blue.

Splendid Blue is a very opaque dark blue shimmer. I thought this might be close to DS Magic, but it's not. 

It looks like the night sky. :)

Now, these NOX Twilight polishes I bought at Meijer in the clearance bin for 75 cents, at least one of them. I had this awkward moment where the barcode wouldn't scan so someone (who turned out to be an ex-friend's brother) had to come help the cashier and it was all very embarrassing but anyway...

Citrus and Red Velvet.
These names are cute but not Twilighty at all.

This is 2 coats of Citrus.

To me, the color of this polish can be described as "grapefruit." It's a pink polish with orange shimmer in it. It IS very citrusy.

I love this color. I remember the drying time was also good on this polish.

You can catch the shimmer in this picture. It looks like a sunset. :)

This is 2 coats of Red Velvet.

Red Velvet is a true red jelly polish.

Red polishes are starting to grow on me. :/ Sorry that my camera likes to make everything orange.

Looks so squeaky :).

Avon really can't win me over. I'm not a big fan of the formula and the drying time sucks to me. But some of their colors call to me. And NOX Twilight polishes are great in my book.

  5. Wow, great deal on the NOX; those disappeared from my Meijer pretty quickly so never got that cheap.

    I didn't know Avon was sold in stores; those colors both look pretty.
