Avon Simply Pretty Nailpolish - Cherry Red

I am bringing out all my red. Red shoes pared with red lips and nails are my current favourites While going through my cupboard I found the Avon Simply Pretty Nailcolor which I had bought last winter.

I have decided not to buy any more nailcolors at all until I finish half of my present stash. In that attempt I'm changing my nail color every two or three weeks.

I had bought two or three more of these which I have managed to finish off!! Phew! My friends also helped me in that attempt.

These are tiny 5 ml bottles. When I started using them, I realized size don't matter. I had a hard time finishing up the other two bottles.

What I liked:
  1.  These come in small bottles. For those who get tired of  the same color after a single application, this could be a boon. Still, this would go a long way.
  2. The shade Cherry Red is indeed bright red with orange undertones.
  3. These are priced at 45 INR or 55. But You can almost always get these on offer . Like I bought 3 at 99INR. That way, these are soo cheap!!
  4. The texture is oakyish. Two coats would give you nice coverage.
  5. These get dried soon. Even after a year, when I tried wearing the coats with a gap of 12 hours, the result was perfect. While new, you can wear the second coat after an hour itself and things would be great.
  6. The brush is good. Neither too short, nor too long. It's not extraordinary. Still good enough to do the job very properly.

What I would have liked more:

Since this is dirt cheap and I already feel that it's complete value for money, I would not say that there is something I 'dislike'. But yes, if I had to suggest, I would say,

  1. The texture could have been a bit creamier. That way, a single application would have been good enough and the application easier.
  2. If it dried faster I would have proclaimed these the best nail paints ever.
  3. They chip in a couple of days unless you put on the second coat after a long time gap. Otherwise, These would be quite cool. I am wearing these for two weeks straight and I am not unhappy with the amount of chipping.
What was your experience like with these nail paints? Do you save or splurge when it comes to nail polishes?


  1. These Avon ladies should open a website and become high tech-ish XD. I'm too lazy to try searching for an avon distributor lol.

    Nice review and same thing with me being in the mood for red nail shades. Maybe the weather is like that? lol.
