Saving the best until last, you know I love my purples. The final of the three Avon True Color Multi-Benefit (Colour+Care) Nail Enamels is Lilac Love. I am a bit addicted to pastel purples this summer so I knew as soon as I opened the box of this trio that the lilac would be my favourite of the collection. Like the other polishes (Restoring Beige and Perfect Pink), Lilac Love promises to care for your nails while giving you a pop of colour.
If you missed it in my other swatches, these BB nail polishes promise
- Increases nail strength
- Primes by filling in imperfections and ridges
- Protects and conditions for a smooth finish
- UV filter prevents discolouration and yellowing
- Formula infused with vitamin C and E
Like Restoring Beige, the formula of Lilac Love is a bit thicker than Perfect Pink. It is completely opaque in two coats but can look a bit white and washed out in some light. It does a great job of filling in ridges without a primer and given the state of my nails that alone is worth paying for. I did not wear it long enough to see any increase in nail strength, but my nails didn’t break while wearing it and no chips after two days.

As you can tell, this one varies a lot in lighting. Lilac Love can look almost white, a muted lilac grey or very (pastel) purple depending on lighting. I decided to bring out those purple tons with MdU Fantasy and a stamping plate from Born Pretty.

Fantasy stamped swatches are two coats Lilac Love topped with Pro-FX Supreme Gel top coat. As you can see, the stamping brings out a bit more of the purple tone, especially in sunlight where it was washed out when worn alone. It still looks slightly more blue in the shade.
