Met Pink’s Cousin~Lavender

Don’t waste any time!!  Jump over to my giveaway post and enter.  It ends Saturday, 10/2/10 at 10 EST.

When I was a kid, I remember the Avon lady coming to our house, sitting down with my mom and chit chatting while my mom looked at the Avon catalog.  Now, women shop Avon online.  Or, I do see shops at the flea market.  When I lived in Virginia, there was an Avon store.  Ah, instant gratification!

Now, before I go off on a tangent about how much I like Avon, let me put a photo up of a really cool Avon polish…

This is Nailwear Pro ‘Luxe Lavender.’  The photobox doesn’t capture the color too well.
Here’s one outside…

That’s just a cool, literally, purple.  This creme isn’t quite a pastel.  I think it’s just a bit too dark to be an out-and-out pastel. 

The squared off bottle is easy to hold.  And, the top, being squared off as well, makes polishing quick.  The brush isn’t skimpy.  It loads up a nice amount of polish and applies very smoothly.

This is in the sunny window.  Not a terribly clear photo but you can see the shine.  This is two coats of color.  I needed that as only 1 made bald spots.  I have a coat of Seche Clear then Vite.

I’m just going to quit apologizing for my cuticles.  They suck.  I know it.  You know it.  We are all hoping that I can get them moisturized.  I did some swatching today and remembered to put on some Lemony Flutter before the photo shoot.

Anyhoo, I love that the back of this bottle is bare.  You can see for yourself that this is a cremey, dreamy lavender.  It’s a color I love.  But I bet you wouldn’t like it so much if the bride picked this shade for your bride’s maid dress.

Did you know that purple is pink’s cousin twice removed?  Yes, you can discover this on heritage.com!  So, don’t you think a cousin purple giveaway would make a nice theme?  I’m just sayin’……
