Before I get to the polish review, I would like to start by saying I'm a bit upset with Avon right now. They came out with a new line of polish in Campaign 4 called A Carnival Of Colors, with the colors, Orange Creamsicle, Fucshia Fun, Sweet Mint, Blue Escape, Aqua Fantasy & Loving Lavender. I ordered them all except the Loving Lavender. When my Avon lady delivered my order, there was a note that said No Longer Available on all the colors!!!! I was sitting there thinking, are you serious Avon???? Why put all those new colors in the book if they aren't available??? So, I went to Avon.com to check out what the problem was. On their site, under the colors, it says, Available soon on 3 of the 6 colors. So, 2 of the colors I ordered were available, but they didn't send them. On the other hand, maybe the colors were in such demand they ran out, who knows. All I know is that I wanted mine!!! I'm done ranting now I feel better :)
Now on to the review. For this manicure I started with Avon smooth beginnings base coat, Avon nailwear pro in Tangtastic, Avon mosaic effects in white & a clear top coat. I really liked this color. It's a very pretty shade of orange, about the same color as a tangarene, hence the name. I thought it looked great after 1 coat, but I chose to use 2.
I then went over top of that with Avon's mosaic effects in white. I'm not sure if I like the way this turned out or not. Maybe it's because I'm not doing it right, I don't know. This was only my 2nd try at using crackle polish. I don't know if I am supposed to use a thick amount or a thin amount. I feel like when it's thick, it looks better, when it's thin, it tends to get clumpy & start to pull the color with it. I guess what they say about practice makes perfect is true.
Like I said, I'm not sure if I like the way it looks or not. Maybe with a brighter color underneath, it would have turned out much better. The Tangtastic is a very pretty color though. I would recommend that. It went on nice & smooth, didn't clump at all & it looked great with 1 coat, but I did 2. I hope you like my review & if you have tried crackle polish, leave a comment & let us know how it turned out for you. As always, Happy Polishing!!
