Avon Speed Dry Nail Enamel - Crystal Calm

Hello Girls,

I am sorry that I have been missing for entire one week.. By now, most of you would be knowing that I work for night shifts. But for the entire month of June I will have to work during the day, which has its own disadvantages.. Making your system accept this change is a biiiiiiiiig task.

I think I wouldn't be posting much this month, I would be vacationing for almost 15 days starting 14th of June... And guess what - I haven't started 1% of packing work. Yes, I am lazy!!  I would be travelling to Agra, Delhi, Srinagar - Kashmir and Mumbai :) I need your suggestions on must visit places (shopping of course )

And I have one other news to share with you all.. I won Wise She's NYX blush give away ! Yaayyyy :) And here is the link

Today I would be swatching / reviewing Avon Speedy Dry Nail Polish in shade Crystal Calm.. I have always liked Speedy dry range of Avon Nail Polishes, they are F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C, but I am not much impressed with their Nailwear Pro range ( Good shades but takes forever to dry) and Simply Pretty (have no idea why I don't like them).

Let's get over to the review :)

Image taken at office in my Manager's cabin :)

The shade is beautiful brown with a little bronze hues ( I think). I am sure this will suit all skin tones...

This is how this looks on me.

The ridge you see on my ring finger is as a result of my cuticle trimming exercise, I trimmed the nail !

Let's talk about the Yayy's and Nayy's

<3 Beautiful shade that will suit all skintones.
<3 Flat brush ( this is always a pro, isn't it?)
<3 Intense color - 2 coats and you're done.
<3 Good range of colors.
<3 Dries real fast.

:(  CHIPS, CHIPS and CHIPS.. Didn't last a day without Topcoat !
:( Available only through Avon reps.

If you're a Chennai'te or even from T.N and you're looking for an Avon rep, do get in touch with me on - My friend's sister is an Avon rep and she is the most organized MLM rep I have ever seen.

Will be back with another review soon, you can expect one post a day for this week atleast :)

Take care till then..
