Coral Reef

What's wrong with me and the coral colour? I don't know, honestly. When I was a kid, my mom told me that I should not wear salad green and bright coral shades, because the colours don't suit me at all. I never questioned that, until recently - we went shopping (with mom), and I wanted to try on a bright coral top just for fun - suddenly it suited me so well, the damn colour! My mom said we should grab that top immediately, and when I reminded her of the words she told me years ago, she laughed and said she never remembered that. Parents... they say random stuff and we have child traumas ;) 

So the top was exactly the colour that I'll be showing today - a bright coral shade of Avon Coral Reef. Reminding you, my official supplier of Avon polishes is Antallex, to whom I'm very grateful! :)

Coral Reef is a neony (not fully neon though) coral polish with a tiny tad of white, very glossy and quite in-your-face. I was wearing it in winter and the colour therapy worked perfectly :) 

Avon Coral Reef

No problems with application at all, 2 coats and fast-drying. No staining, no chipping.

For those who wonder if they really need another coral - here's a comparison of Avon Coral Reef vs. Essie Cute As A Button vs. Orly Pixy Stix. Coral Reef is the brightest of all, Essie is just a little more muted, and Pixy Stix is the most whitened.

As for me, you don't need all 3 polishes, maybe only you are a frantic coral-addict :) Are you? :)

    1. Thank you! :) I did it! The coral shade is conquered :)
      Between semi-jelly and creme, just because of the opacity, and yep, VERY glossy :)

  3. Офигенно смотрится, особенно на таких идеальных ногтях!
    Вот не поверите, но я не могу заказать эйвон, я по этим лакам плачу уже, ну нет у нас тут консультантов, хоть ты сама регистрируйся))

  4. Официальный поставщик )))
    Вот видишь, у них от цвета к цвету, то хорошее качество, то откровенное ...
    ПО картинкам в каталоге не угадаешь.
    Кстати, что в лаках идеально, мне не всегда идет в одежде, а что в лаках и одежде хорошо, что на лице отвратительно.
    Зато персиковые оттенки на лицо отлично, а на руки нельзя ))
