Sneak Peek: Avon Forbidden Fruits
If you're a BIG Avon Nailwear Pro fan, I have an exciting sneak peek from their newest summer release called, Forbidden Fruits. It's a collection of six, fresh & fruity colors with a glistening, glass-pearl finish as Avon describes.
Along with Forbidden Fruits, I couldn't resist sharing another fabulous collection from Avon, Petal Impressions. There's also six new colors in this spring collection with a subtle sparkle-pearl finish.
Since I haven't been able to officially review Forbidden Fruits or Petal Impressions, I hope you don't mind quick swatches on nail wheels and a brief description for each color. The flu knocked me down hard for an astonishing 8 weeks (no joke!) and right now I'm still trying to recover fully.
Here we go!
Forbidden Fruits Summer 2013 Collection
Honeydew Dazzle - is a pastel mint green with bright green glass-fleck glitter.
Divine Lime - is a lime green/chartreuse with bright green glass fleck glitter.
Grape Goodness - is a magenta/fuchsia purple with bright pink/gold duochrome glitter. In the bottle you can see the gold duochrome, but it's not visible on the nail.
Mandarin Magic - is an orange with gold glass flecked glitter.
Seduce Me Strawberry - is a hot coral pink with bright pink/gold duochrome glitter. Just like Grape Goddess, you can see the gold duochrome in the bottle but not on the nail.
Apple Of His Eye - is a red orange with gold shimmer. It's more of a harvest orange compared to the swatch above. Love this color!
Petal Impressions Spring 2013 Collection
Forget Me Not Blue - is a medium blue with bright turquoise shimmer.
Blue Water Lilies - is a gorgeous periwinkle blue with golden shimmer.
Garden Green - is a medium, kind of murky green with bright green shimmer.
Inspired Iris - looks more lavender in the bottle, but applies much sheerer to a cool pinkish purple with blue shimmer.
Sweet Pea Dreams - is actually hard to pin point the exact color of this peachy neutral. It's a peachy/beige/nude with gold shimmer. And I'd even say this might come close to matching certain skin tones. It's definitely the odd duckling.
Painted Peony - is a pink toned peach with golden shimmer. It falls along the same line as Nars Orgasm or Peach Sparkle, although I haven't compared them side by side.
In other Avon news, I have a tidbit of thrilling information for my holographic lovers. Launching with Campaign 12 is a new summer collection called, Celestial Summer Color Collection, which features 10 cosmic nail colors with a holographic pearl finish ($3.49 debut price).
Now judging by the promo image, which we know it can be a little misleading, looks like a subtle effect, possibly similar to the Tronica Collection?
What do you think of the new Spring and Summer shades? Have you tried any of the new colors yet?

I want them all, but especially that Mandarin Magic. That is possibly the most perfect summer color ever. All of the Forbidden Fruit nail colors remind me of popsicles!
