Beauty Review: Avon Mosaic Effects Top Coat Nail Polish

All makeup experts have heard the hype, and maybe even tried, the new shatter nail polish top coats hitting the market. This top coat cracks to reveal an undercoat of colour adding a new dimension to your nails. Avon is getting in on the craze with their own version of shatter polishes, the Mosaic Effects Top Coat. This affordable brand is hoping to replace your more expensive salon polishes.

THE HYPE: Shatter nail polish top coats are the hottest craze. You can get one in every colour to completely transform your nail polish look.

THE TEST: See if Avon can make their version of the shatter top coat stand up to brands like OPI.

THE VERDICT: The Avon Mosaic Effects Top Coat comes in a dark black shade that is perfect for Halloween. That is not meant to be a joke, this black crackled shade of nail polish is the kind of dramatic that only that holiday can handle. The Avon nail polish dries surprisingly fast for an affordable brand and cracks across your nails in interesting patterns right before your eyes. The coat will be done quickly revealing whatever shade you wear underneath. When paired with a bright bold neon shade such as a vibrant orange, blue or pink, you come out with an amazing effect. The thing is… it might be a little too much. Unless you are an angry teenager, you may not have much use for this black nail polish. With Halloween quickly approaching though, this will be a fun investment to add the finishing touch to your costume.
