Avon Suedes Touch of Taupe and Fuchsia Feel

Good morning, girls!

As promised, I have for you ladies Avon suede polishes.  According to Avon, matte = suede, and to be honest, the finish of the two I'm about to show you are a bit more unique than the run of the mill mattes.  

First up, Touch of Taupe.  A teddy brown creme flushed with golden shimmer, the suede dries with a textured look enhanced by the gold.  With a topcoat, the gold becomes more subdued and the brown richer (as you can see from my ring finger).  This is two coats. 



Next up, is Fuschia Feel.  A royal plum shade infused with silvery shimmer; but unlike Touch of Taupe, the shimmer makes the suede look duller.  However, with a topcoat (again, ring finger), the color explodes into a glittery fuchsia.  This is definitely a polish I would need a topcoat in order to wear comfortably and to my liking.  Again, two coats.


The formula on both polishes was identical: thick, but not uncomfortably so.  However, because these are suede mattes, they dry exceptionally fast so it's important to apply the polish as evenly as possible the first coat on the nail and to shake the polish before polishing each hand.

Like most mattes, without a topcoat the polish chips easily.  But because these colors look gorgeous with a shiny topper, I have no problem losing the suede for a little more protection and a lot more bang.  As far as mattes go, if you like a little bit of texture on your fingertips, Avon suedes are a nice alternative to more monochromatic mattes.

  2. Nope, they're definitely getting into more left of center finishes. Given how affordable they are, I hope they branch into holos next!

  4. I have to say that these suedes do remind me a lot of the OPI ones. And these are half the price!

  6. Oh, thanks so much, Jamie! I actually wore FF matte for a day and just didn't love it until I topcoated it. But then again, I love my manis super shiny.

  8. That's what I thought too! I'm debating about getting the green one Avon is selling as well because I've been eyeing Aragon Suede for awhile now.

  11. I think these look good on you! Lovely colors. I am just not a huge fan of suede polishes...I don't know what it is, they just don't look right on me.

  12. I feel that way about matte polishes on me. Love them on others, but always feel weird when I'm wearing them.
