Avon - Midnight Plum, Love My Nails - Diva

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2 of Midnight Plum, 1 of Diva
TOPCOAT?: Yes
SOURCE: www.avon.com and Walmart respectively.
COMMENTS: I've been feeling like wearing all black or something rich and dark lately (maybe due to my return to work and how gloomy it is in LA versus where I live?). Either way, I settled on this rich deep plum color. As is usual with these Avons, I could probably have gotten away with one generous coat had I been more careful. I paired these two colors together when I first bought  and played with them, so naturally, the sparkly micro-bar glitter that is Diva came for the ride again. A line with LA Colors - Magenta striper finished off the mani.

  9. Thanks for your comments everyone!
    @diamants-d'ébènes: I just took this off, so I had it on for two days only. I usually change every 2-3 days unless I am super busy.
