Avocado

Avocado is a great creme polish from Forever 21’s love & beauty brand. If you look for it on the site, it’s sold under the name Avocado Always. The formula is really nice – opaque in two coats with a smooth application.

I couldn’t leave it alone, so I added a glitter accent nail with Snow Globe from China Glaze’s Let It Snow collection. Honestly, I’m not terribly impressed with Snow Globe. It has little bits of silver glitter that look very flat on the nail, creating a gritty appearance. I was pleased with the application and removal, but I’m fairly sure the original version that debuted in 2009 was superior. If you can get your hands on that one, do it.

The swatch below is two coats of Avocado, one coat of Snow Globe on the accent nail, and a coat of Seche Vite to finish it all off. Photographed in natural light.
