Avon Gel Finish Roses are Red Nail Polish Swatches

Avon Gel Finish Roses are Red Swatches Reviews

This month, we are doing Nails We Wouldn’t Normally Do for #CBBxManiMonday.  Quite an open theme so expect some interesting manis over the month.  One of the things I rarely wear is red polish.  Some of it is just that it always looks too bright against my skin tone.  It is hard to find a red that works.  But also, my dad used to shout at us for wearing bright red makeup as teens.

So for my first week, I went with Avon Gel Finish Roses are Red.  Then added stamping in patterns I rarely use because lining them up perfectly is so hard when your nails are not perfectly shaped.  Since I am wearing these awesome long falsies at the moment (review coming soon), seemed like an ideal pairing.

Avon Gel Finish is a classic red.  Shown above with only ONE COAT! It is creamy, applies well with minimal pooling.  It is a bit of a stainer though so make sure you wear a good base coat.  That is to be expected with great opacity though and I always wear a base coat anyway,

The black stamping using MoYou Fashionista plates and Hit the Bottle Black as Night made the red look a lot darker.  As you can see on my middle finger, I am terrible at lining them up but with the falsies, it has more to do with the pattern barely fitting on the nail.  Note to self – file them down a bit next time.

As always, I do #CBBxManiMonday with some other bloggers.  So head over to see  how Cosmetic ProofPrairie Beauty Love and See the World in Pink did with this challenge.
