Avon Simply Pretty Nail Polish: Bronze Metallic: Review/NOTD

By Ghayathri

Hi everyone!

The next one in this series will be BRONZE METALLIC  from the metallic shine category, guessed it didn’t you? I thought so!

Ingredients: Not mentioned
Price: Rs.85 for 5ml but almost always it is available on offers
Availability: Only through Avon representatives.

The shade has a metallic finish as per the name but it looks more like a dull gold than a bronze shade. One coat was sufficient for an opaque coverage. Couldn’t find many high-end dupes for this though, found just one, which isn’t a dupe exactly, but a similar colour. More on that at the end of review

Drying time was average, around one minute. The staying power was good, it stayed for 4-5 days when two coats were applied, without a base coat and a top coat. The application was a bit streaky but the metallic finish makes it hard to spot.

The brush and packaging were okay, nothing much to complain about but the finish wasn’t that good, a bit streaky as I already mentioned. One good thing about this shade is well, the shade 😛 I haven’t seen such dull gold shades anywhere so it gets brownie points for being unique, if any of you know of such a colour, do mention in the comments!

Pros:

  • Good staying power
  • Dull gold shade.
  • Price!

Cons:

  • Application is streaky.
  • No ingredients list.
  • Available only through Avon representatives
Dupe Alert!: Mac Magnificent Feast is a similar shade, but it has all these glitters and sparkles which are not in Bronze Metallic shade. I won’t say that these two shades are twins, second cousins maybe 😛 Bronze Metallic looks like Magnificent Feast in natural sunlight, though it looks darker in photos taken with flash :-/ See the last pic, the one which displays the brush, now I guess you could find the similarity between this one and the MAC one .
Final Word: The streaky application, the opaqueness that covers the streaky application, the staying power, everything reminds me of Cool Coral shade. Get it if you love dull gold shades
How well do you know your simply pretty polishes? Here’s a clue for you guys to guess the next one I’ll be reviewing : Clash of the titans! Silver shimmer and matte finish!! A soft shade, which is also a great party shade, any guesses? Let me know in the comments below

  • I had this one, Its a beautiful color though gets streaky at times.

    • Yup, that’s one bad point about this one but the gorgeous shade makes up for it, for me atleast 😀

  • the color is sooooo pretty! you were so right in your last post! apt for ethnic wear but the moment i read the word “streaky” my heart broke :(

    • Tip : Get it, wear it on your nails BUT don’t look too close at it, just keep it at a length and admire the shade (that’s what I do anyway :P) 😀

  • Shade looks so pretty!

    • Yeah Rachna, I love it :)

  • Janani comar

    call me whacko but i would pair this shade of nails with a neon accessories (read handbag/clutch/sling bag). just gives the edge. streaky application is the only con for me. I hate when the finish is not good.

    nice one girl :)

    • Thanks janani :) Yup, the finish is a bit disappointing (okay, a lot disappointing :P) but the shade is gorgeous *sigh*
