Viva Pink

How about some bright spot in the middle of calm and muted winter colours? I realised that sometimes I need a 'restart' - either by wearing something vivid or by wearing nudes. This time I picked Avon Viva Pink - as vivid as I could wish : ) 

Avon Viva Pink

Viva Pink is a bright pink/magenta creme, not a neon though, but quite in-your-face. Exactly this colour I imagine when I hear 'barbie pink', but as it turned out, we all have different perception of which pink is a barbie one : ) The formula is quite fine, 2 coats will do. What I liked is the amazing gloss - I didn't use any top coats on the photos. The brush in this case was my friend and wanted to cooperate : )

Somehow I didn't take a lot of pics because of the poor light.. but I hope these 2 are enough to create an impression. Viva Pink is indeed a very nice polish, I totally recommend it.

  4. I often tend to wear non-season colors because I also feel this "restart" urge. So it may be bright summer and I'll come around with some grey as much as I'll crave for a bright pink like yours in the middle of winter. =) By the way, I always thought Barbie pink would be a somewhat softer pink, but it turns out a looot of people would describe it as the color you're wearing. Then again, I didn't have that much of Barbie experience: they were awfully expensive here in Brazil when I was little, I only got a Barbie's-friend-doll that I had to share with my sister when I was nearly 11 years old, which didn't give me much time to play. =P
    Anyway, bright pink that shines like that without top coat is definitely a keeper!

    1. Oh, it's the same with me: suddenly I either want neon brights on the middle of winter, or muted nudes in summer - just like you :) As for the colour: it's rather a colour of Barbie's furniture, although I associate softer shades of pink with Barbie too :) Where I grew up (not Germany), Barbie was a luxury too, but my dad managed to get me one, it could even talk! In French, lol :D
