But to help prolong it a little longer, I have swatches of a polish that totally reminds me of summer. It's a polish by Avon called Teal Waters, and I believe this was a limited edition. I have a few polishes by Avon, but don't remember the last one I wore one as a manicure. This particular one is my Mom's. I saw it lying around and thought it was pretty, so I decided to swatch it.
Teal Waters is a frosty pastel aqua color that totally reminds me of crystal clear waters at some island resort. The name is perfect for it! Unfortunately, it did not apply so well. I already had inklings of doom for my swatches, when I saw how small the brush was. As mentioned previously, small brushes and I don't mix well.
Though the color is pretty, I'm not a fan of frosty polish. I probably would've liked this a lot more if it was a creme polish. The formula was very thin, taking three coats to get some kind of opacity, and it applied streakily. As you can see in the pictures below, I ended up with some bald spots, even with 4 coats.

I wouldn't recommend this particular polish. If you're looking for this kind of color, check out other brands. This type of color is a pretty hot color right now, so I'm sure you can find a dupe. If not a dead-on dupe, at least something very similar. As for Avon polish in general, I'll have to try a few more before I can say for sure. After all, other brands don't have a 100% success rate either.
Have you tried this color or any other Avon polishes?
What do you think of them?
