I am back with another nail polish review (no surprises there!) and it’s another one from the Avon Nailwear Pro+ range. This nail polish is called Rave and it is from the ‘Sequins’ collection. Let’s get into the review :)
Rs 159 for 8 ml
The nail polish comes in a rectangular bottle with a black screw on cap. You know what – to be honest, I’m not really a fan of brown nail polishes in general. I mean, I like brown metallic ones and the lighter nude browns but I feel that darker browns don’t really do anything for my hands. But the Avon brochure depicted so much shimmer in the ‘sequins’ nail polishes that I thought Rave might turn out to be an interesting, unique brown. Boy, am I glad I picked this up!
Rave is a super gorgeous metallic brown with tons of golden-brown shimmer packed in, which catch the light beautifully. I mean, there must be like a million shimmer particles on each of my nails! It does require a minimum of three coats for full opacity. The nail polish changes color as the light hits it, appearing a slightly darker brown from some angles and more metallic from others. This is one of those shades that look very classy on the toenails too. I love how glossy and sparkly and beautiful this shade is! Plus it doesn’t chip for a week and doesn’t lose its shine for about that long! What more can you ask for from a nail polish?
Although it has a lot of shimmer, it is essentially a muted brown and so I think it can be worn to work as well – definitely on the toes at least, if not on the hands.
What I like?:
- Reasonably priced
- Retains its glossy shine for almost a week
- Will look beautiful on all skin tones
- Does not chip for about a week
- Colour stays true
- Good consistency and texture, non-streaky application
What I don’t like?:
- Absolutely NOTHING
I adore this nail polish and I am so happy I picked it up. It is one of the loveliest browns I have ever seen and it’s so flattering on my hands. It is classy and elegant and glamorous and chic all at once. Plus such unique nail polishes aren’t easily available at this price in India. This is like a nail polish from Zoya or something at less than half the price! I absolutely recommend this nail polish!
