Avon is getting all Indie with their nail polishes for fall! The new Avon Urban Splatter Nail Enamels($6.99 CDN) will give you a street-art inspired mani that’s on trend right now.
Avon Urban Splatter Nail Enamels are sheer color with matte black & white flecks of confetti throughout.
They are available in 6 sheer shades and I have four to show you: Pink Splatter, Urban Green Underground Yellow, Blue Vandalism. The two I don’t have are Purple Graffiti and Blackout.
Here’s a closeup of the back of a bottle:
You can see the back and white hexagons, circles and mini white dots confetti. There’s also some black sticks? as well in there.
Avon Urban Splatter Nail Enamels are quite different to apply! I’ve never tried nail polishes like these before, so I’m assuming all of these kind of confetti polishes are like this-slightly goopy, but not too bad all in all. It takes a bit of effort to get out the right amount of confetti in one go, but it wasn’t too difficult once I got used to it. You do have to maneuver the confetti around a bit and keep getting more of it from the bottle as you apply it.
This is what one coat of each shade looked like on Marky’s nails:
Just a little bit closer up:
I’ll tell you this, there’s no way Marky would have sat through more than one coat of this! So, here’s a stock image of what Avon Urban Splatter Nail Enamel in Blackout would look like if you piled on a few layers:
I think that would have been a pain and a half to get all of that confetti off her nails haha! Avon Urban Splatter Nail Enamels don’t take too long too dry after one coat, but DANG Marky had a hard time getting all the bits of confetti off because it tends to stick to your skin during removal. I assume that’s nothing out of the ordinary with polishes like these. The nail polish itself removes quite easily, so if you take a napkin and wipe your nail off after with that, then all the bits of confetti come off of your skin much easier. The nail surface isn’t completely smooth to the touch either, so a top coat would be necessary to protect your urban splatter mani. I can’t tell you long your Urban Splatter mani would last as Marky took it off right away, but with a good top coat I’d think you’d get great wear time.
There’s no way I’d ever wear Avon Urban Splatter Nail Enamel full on like that stock image, but on an accent nail I think it would be fun for sure!
