Avon Metallic Fringe Top Coats: Review and Swatches
Did someone say bar glitters? For Fall 2015, Avon is bringing back the feather bar glitter glamor with the new Metallic Fringe Collection ($8 CAD each). Available in several dazzling combinations, these glitter top coats can be worn alone or over your favorite base color. To see some swatches, click.......
Fringed and Frayed:
A classy combination of shiny gold bar glitters and matte white bar glitters, Fringed and Frays applies smoothly and evenly. As you will see from swatches below, all of these Metallic Fringe polishes are packed with glitters so you only need one coat for a nice distribution of glitter!

Jacquard Metal:
This is a beautiful combination of dark teal blue and shiny gold bar glitters. The color pairing reminds me of peacock feathers! I paired it with a bright pink to bring some fun to the nails.

Tassled Trim:
A combination of shiny periwinkle and silver bar glitters, Tassled Trim is extra sparkly and festive compared to the other shades. I used one coat over a fresh orange base.

Frayed Edges:
This is a simple shiny silver and white matte bar glitter combo. The glitter distribution and content is so perfect that one coat of this gives the nails an even covering of glitters.

Fringe Effect:
Last but not least is a matte gold and shiny silver pairing called Fringe Effect. I paired this one with a neon lime yellow for a nice contrast.

I love this collection! The feathered bar glitter trend is certainly nothing new but the execution of these polishes is amazing. The formulation holds just enough glitters that each stroke provides an even coating. Additionally, the drying time is quick and the color selection is great as well.

The Metallic Fringe collection is available online through an Avon Representative starting July.
