My Opinion: - Ok I know the words "Suede Nail Enamel" might be confusing to many a ladies, it is basically a matte nail paint with fine shimmer in it which actually gives it the so called "Suede" look. Avon launched these Suede shades sometimes back and the one I bought was Blue Royale, you guys know how mad I am about Blue Polishes :P Coming back to the review, this suede nail enamel comes in the same old Avon Simply Pretty packaging, cute little elongated bottle with a pink cap, the packaging is sturdy I must say. Since the bottle is tiny, it houses only 5 ml of polish which is good in a way. Less product means we can finish it off soon and get some more.
This polish is thick, not exactly like the matte polishes. If you keep the brush exposed in air, the polish becomes gloppy Otherwise its not that very hard to apply kind of polish but you need to work a little faster than you do with your regular polishes. The brush is a good one taking in consideration its price of Rs 85. Does not give a streaky finish. Well the amazing thing is that only a single coat is enough for full opacity but I opted for 2 coats without any special reason or special effect. Anyways this Suede effect gives a sultry, elegant and stunning look to my and I got a lot of compliments from my friends this evening.
The shade is a very gorgeous taupe, brown mixed with grey and loaded with very finely milled silver shimmer. By looking at the bottle you would think that this is one of those shimmery silvery brownish shade but on application the story is completely different. Actually the silver shimmer gives it the so called "Suede" finish. The nail paint is very easy to remove and the shimmer is gone and does not sticks to the skin around the nails like it usually happens. Now coming to its staying power, its real bad as it chipped on the 3rd day morning itself. On my hands polish chips a little late than they usually do because I am not into household work. I could not apply a top coat as applying one would beat the very purpose of "Suede" nails and I also didn't have matte top coat. In India as far as I know only Bourjois has a matte top coat (correct if I am wrong) and I am getting it asap.
* Affordable, especially during those sales
* All 5 shades in this Suede Range are awesome, but for me the topper is Touch of Taupe
* Elegant Suede finish, silver shimmer adds to the beauty
* Dries in a minute, good for those days when you can't sit for long for your nails to dry
* Not difficult to apply as in matte polish, but you need to be quick
* Brush is good quality
* Easy to take it off
* Single coat is enough for full opacity
* Chipped in 3 days
* Available only through Avon Representatives
* Polish becomes gloppy when it comes in contact with air
I rate Avon Simply Pretty Suede Nail Enamel 4 out of 5. Inspite of the cons I gave a 4 because of the stunning taupe shade and also because a single coat is enough for full opacity. Whether you use base coat or not, your manicure will see you through only 3 days or less. This particular shade will suit fair to medium skin tones and would be a great everyday/office/college wear. The present Avon Catalogue (No. 7) has these Suede Nail Enamels on discount. Go ahead and grab them if you liked the subtle and elegant finish.
