I am not a huge fan of chrome polish on my nails for anything but stamping. The iciness of a chrome is too harsh for me...makes me feel cold, and I can't stand the cold. That said, I'm really surprised that I liked Avon Mirror Shine, Glisten Scintillant, enough to wear it as a full mani.
The difference of this chrome, from all the others in my collection, is in the frosty texture of the pigment/particles. This texture helps to reduce harsh iciness, making for a very pretty, soft, satiny, diffused chrome with a bright and large, glowing halo.
The formula of Avon Glisten Scintillant is quite remarkable. This is a 1 coater! The polish had a nice consistency, not too thin, not too thick and flowed smoothly on the nail without any brush strokes. What I liked best...although this dried quickly, it wasn't too fast...just enough time to go over and get even coverage.
I'm not too sure about Avon's choice of bottle, though...cheap, lightweight and plastic.
I'm wearing this sans top coat... click to make 'em bigger...
Very glow-y, even under low light...
