Avon Galaxy


I was so excited when my Avon rep told me that Avon was releasing a whole collection of holographic polishes.  Accessible and affordable holos make me all gooey inside.  So it goes without saying that I picked up a number of these beauties when the Avon Cosmic Collection went on sale about a month ago.

First to be worn was Galaxy, an azure blue that absolutely mesmerizes.  The color is rich, jewel-toned, with an aquatic feel -- perfect for beach time toes!  The holo, however, is somewhat more disappointing.  A weak scattered effect, the real unique aspect of this polish is the glass-like sparkle the so-called holo gives to the blue, making it appear like stars reflecting on a pool at night.  

Application was fantastic.  No dragging and full coverage in three coats.



For those looking for a true holographic finish, Avon Cosmic polishes are not top of the line.  However, for really pretty polishes with an extra special flair (I see these coming in handy come New Years!), these are a definite must-have.  

To order this product, or any other Avon item, please visit my Avon rep, Adelina Mercado's, page by clicking here.  Please note that Adelina is also quite the polishaholic herself and has a blog dedicated to selling and swapping.  Check both out for a reliable and trustworthy swap partner!

  4. Avon holos!! Avon ceased trading in Ireland recently, which is a huge nuisance, but we can still get stuff online. This is gorgeous, can't wait to see the other shades they come up with!

  8. The formulas are great, just have to get used to a slightly longer brush. Plus for size and price, you get a good deal with this brand.

  9. Definitely not the most holo-y, but gorgeous nonetheless! I love this color!
