Avon - Gleaming Gold

Last week I used Avon Gleaming Gold for stamping and said that I would swatch it by itself. Needing a break from the Ulta marathon, I figured there is no better time than the present...

In the bottle, Gleaming Gold appears as a foil with very fine particles so I was surprised when it didn't apply like one. The formula is somewhat prone to streaks and requires a very light application. This was not too much of a problem since the slightly widened brush is very easy to work with.  It was fully opaque in two coats, although I can see a bit of the nail line in these photos.

This is two coats with a top coat...

Swatch Details

Here is a quick peek at what it looked like stamped over Avon Violetta Sparkle. I think I will be reserving it for this use :)

What do you think... save it for stamping or wear on by itself?

Thanks for looking!

  1. It looks good, but I would save it for stamping ;) Looks better that way :)

  2. @Theodora, we are in complete agreement there :) Not the best for my skin tone, but perfect for stamping!

  3. Yes, I agree as well--save this for stamping!

  4. We haven't used Avon nail polishes, but will have to give them a try. It does look good for stamping, but we like it on it's own too. Happy Holidays!

  5. Thanks ladies!
    I'm thinking on it's own it would look better on someone with a different skin tone... for me it works well for stamping :D


I love getting comments and reading what you have to say! So don't be shy... comment! :D
