Avon Mark. Satin Matte

Today I will show you 6 polishes from Avon Mark. Satin Matte line. They all dry matte and my experience with matte polish is they chip fast. I can’t talk about durability of these six shades, because I only swatched them, I wasn’t wearing them during the day. But if by any chance they aren’t durable, I can give you a piece of advice on how to make them last longer. I was doing that with Essie Cashmere collection. First I applied two coats of matte polish, then I went over with a fast drying top coat and for the matte finish I applied one more coat of matte polish. I know, a lot for layers, but it worked for me, the polishes lasted longer.

And now back to these babies. They were full of surprises. First of I thought only three were shimmers, but they all ended up being shimmers. And the second thing is they dry matte, well satin. And I didn’t know that either, because I didn’t read the labels. So there you go, these got me by surprise and I love it 🙂

 

Leading Lady* – Avon Mark. Satin Matte

I can’t believe how easy the formula is on this one. It was my first to apply and I didn’t know it was matte, so I wasn’t extra careful with application. Because it was so easy to apply and it was so even when it dried, I was very surprised when it turned out to be matte. I was a bit more careful with the second coat, now that I knew it will dry matte, but again, no problems with application at all.

So two coats were needed for full opacity.

Disco Diva* – Avon Mark. Satin Matte

Two easy coats, but it still looked sheer in some spots, so maybe three coats would be better for complete opacity. It is streaky even when it dries, but it’s not horrible. So I would suggest layering three coats and the third coat might even end up without any streakiness.

Miss Drama* – Avon Mark. Satin Matte

It is a dramatic red. And a matte red!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a matte red and it looks gorgeous! Just like red velvet *_*.

It was very easy to apply and it needed two coats for perfect opacity. However, upon removal the red pigments were hard to remove from under nails and from skin. So be careful when removing this polish.

Hail To The Queen* – Avon Mark. Satin Matte

I think this really is the queen here. To my surprise it is my favourite of the bunch. I think it’s because it’s the only one where you can see the shimmer even when it’s dry and matte. So yeah, my favourite!

It needed two coats for full opacity.

    Golden Rose in Trend it up imata mat rdeč lak. Tisti od TIP je super in meni zdrži ok kakšne dva dni, kar se mi zdi za mat lak ok, pa še zelo poceni in lahko dostopna sta oba.

      Zanimivo, jaz ga še nisem videla. Je pa res, da že dolgo nisem raziskovala v drogeriji lakov 🙂

    Imava istega favorita :D. Ta vijoličen je res čudovit. Mi je presenetljivo všeč tudi Leading Lady. Tak bubble gum roza odtenek :). Rdeč je prav tako ekstra lep v mat izvedbi.

    Jaz obožujem mat nohte. Ampak po navadi namažem kar navadne in grem preko z mat nadlakom. Ker imam isti problem kot si opisala, da mat formula barvnih lakov ne zdržijo na nohtih. Sama sicer tudi pri navadnih najprej nanesem barvnega, potem sijoč nadlak in nato preko mat nadlak, ker mi podaljša obstojnost. Tako kot si tudi sama svetoval 😉

    Čudoviti swatchi kot vedno <3

      Meni so tudi všeč mat, ampak se kar ne lotim jih nositi. Pa sploh nimam nekega razloga 🙂
