Monday Blues: Avon Daring

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday and Monday always means blue. Today I've got glitter for you so it's double the fun! Let's see what we have here. 

This is Daring from the new State Of Mind collection from Avon. These polishes are from the Color Trend line so they are very cheap and are paired with a lip gloss as well. I saw them in the catalog and was immediately attracted by the blue one. Of course I had to get it because it has holo glitter in it. The bottle holds 8 ml of product. The other colors in the collection are not very interesting but this one is a beauty! 

Daring is definitely a layering glitter. The dark blue jelly base is full of larger hex and smaller silver glitter. I'm not sure how many coats it would take to get this opaque but I didn't even try. Instead I layered it over one coat of Essie Mesmerize. The glitter is pretty dense in it but I did 2 coats for the final look. I snapped a quick shot of it with only one coat (and no top coat) to show you how dense it is.

Application is a little tricky with this one because I've noticed that it drags the color underneath. Not sure what the explanation for that is, because my base color was already an hour old when I put this on. It might be the small stiff brush. Either way you should be careful when applying this. On the plus side it's not very gritty so a coat of top coat should suffice for it to be smooth. 

You can see the holo effect of the hex glitter in the sun pictures. I think this is so gorgeous! Not a very sophisticated glitter but so beautiful! 

I hope you enjoyed this polish as much as I did and don't forget to check out my other Blue Monday blogger companions:
