Avon True Colour BB Nailwear in Perfect Pink Swatches & Review

Avon True Color BB Nail Enamel Perfect Pink Swatch

I may have gone a little overboard with these.  You see, at the same time as these new Colour+Care polishes arrived from Avon, my Mundo de Unas order arrived too.  I needed to swatch the stamping polishes so what better time than over new polishes.  Rather than one long picture heavy post with the three new Avon True Color BB Nailwear polishes, I am splitting them up into separate posts over the weekend for you!
