Happy Election Day! With the outcome of the Presidential election, I thought it would be appropriate to post a swatch of a polish that correlates with the color that is tied to the winning party. And if you didn't know by now, Obama has been re-elected!
Blue is the color tied to the Democratic party here in the U.S., so here is Avon's Suede Nail Enamel in Blue Royale. I got this polish recently and couldn't wait to try it! I'm not really sure how to describe this blue. It's navy blue in some lighting, but more of a royal blue (as its name suggests) in other lighting...as you can see from the pictures:
I thought this was a really pretty polish! I missed out on the suedes that OPI did a while back, so I'm glad that other companies are doing them now! Avon came out with 6 colors, so in addition to this one, I bought 3 other colors to add to my collection. I also have suede polishes coming in my Julep Maven box for November, so I think I'm good on suedes now, haha!
Anyway, this applied a little streaky at first, but evened out. I think suede polishes are pretty forgiving in application, though I did have some small bald spots. I used two coats for the picture above, with no top coat. A glossy top coat kind of ruins the suede effect, I think. And the color is gorgeous how it is! It's a nice deep color for fall!
What do you think of Suede polishes? Like 'em? Hate 'em? Let me know! :)
