Avon Mega Watt Shock

It was recently revealed that Pantone's top color for spring 2014 will be Dazzling Blue. Pretty familiar, eh? I think Dazzling Blue at least for me has been my "it" color for the past 2 years! You can never go wrong with a bright vibrant blue. I think I have an another awesome Dazzling Blue candidate for you nail polish stash by Avon. 

Shock is a bright royal blue jelly.

Color: Yes, I said jelly! This is a saturated in your face bright blue. I can't say it's entirely original, since we've seen tons of bright blue polishes out ther, but it's gorgeous nonetheless. 

Formula: This formula is very sheer, but I achieved the look above using 4 coats. This isn't as jelly-like as L'Oreal Miss Pixie, and it's slightly lighter. It's slightly more opaque than the L'Oreal summer jellies, but I'd still classify it as a jelly. Look how squishy it is! 

Price: This is around $6.00 on the Avon website. Avon always had awesome deals going on, so you can usally find this for less with an offer. If you're looking for an Avon rep to buy from, I recommend my  friend, Alyssa

Overall: This is bright blue and it's a jelly! What more can I say? The formula could be a little less sheer, but as I said it's bright blue and a jelly! :)

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Thursday!


  1. Four coats is a bit much for me I would much rather 1 or two but it is pretty

  2. Did the 4 coats take a long while to dry? I've found that many of the Avon polishes I've tried dry so slowly! Love this color, though!

  3. Wow that is quite bright! I wonder if it would be even more so with a white base underneath.

  4. I don't recall it taking a while to dry. I always do my nails in the evening when I don't have do much else, so drying time isn't something I pay too much attention too. It probably does take longer to dry just being 4 coats though.

  5. It probably would be!

  6. WoW! Gorgeous!!

  7. Wow, that is some insane color right there! The four coats is kind of a turn off, but at the same time, I think it's worth it for such a gorgeous outcome. Thanks for the swatch, I'm totally going to pick some up!

  8. BRIGHT! But no bueno at 4 coats :(
