I got the below two colours from Avon back in the winter. The purple is called Violetta Sparkle and is a dark purple with gold shimmer in it. The other is called Sequinned Turquoise and is a turquoise with a silver shimmer to it.
I wanted to see how these looked with a matte top coat over them as matte over shimmer and glitter can look quite effective. However as I had not wore these colours before, I also wanted to see how they looked normally. I decided to go for a matte ring finger look to get the effect of both at once. For the matte, I used Matte Magic by China Glaze, and for the gloss I used my normal Barry M top coat.
The next few pictures show how it turned out with the purple.
I quite like these two shades as they apply easily and have a lovely finish with the shimmer.
They also look good both with the matte and normal top coat in my opinion. However if you are not a fan of matte nail varnish then this would not suit you.
The next two pictures show the same in the turquoise.
However of the two colours I think I like the purple with the gold shimmer in it the best.
What do you think?
