AVON Colour Morphing top coat

When I started my re-obsession with polish a year or two ago, my sweet mum pulled a couple of polishes out from an old makeup bag and said, you may as well have these old polishes, I know there are some nice ones among them.

One polish she gave me was an AVON polish called Colour Morphing Top Coat.  I kept looking at it in the bottle thinking, yeah that's a nice orange shimmer top coat, I'll have to try it out soon.  Two years later I have put it on and HOLY CRAP.

I was so excited about the effect, I kept shoving my nails under mums nose saying; 'look at this, look at all the colours'.  Of course her reply was, 'I know darling, I told you there were some nice polishes in there'

I've tried googling it to find out more about it, but can't really find anything at all.  It's either a UK or Australian release because of the spelling of 'colour' on the bottle. 

It is a milky clear top coat with an amazing colour shifting shimmer in it, which goes from golden bronze to bright green.  The shimmer particles are nice and dense.  This was one coat of the top coat over black.

This photo you can see the start of the green shift.

And it gets greener as I stand and spin in circles.

Now my nails look like the emerald city.

Then it shifts darker and starts showing blue.

Sorry about the sun reflections, but here you can see blue.

How freaking awesome is this.  I can't wait to try it over other colours.  There must be others out there with this polish.  Anyone, Bueller, Bueller?

  14. Oh my GOSH this is awesome! I need it. I've never seen that before, and I've been buying Avon forever, so I imagine it isn't US originated, but I am not sure!

  15. AWESOME!!! I would really really like to have that polish! (:

  16. Wow - what a response from everyone. Thanks for the comments. I know, I know is such an awesome polish and I'm very lucky to have got this from my mum!! It might just my hold off my undying need to get a bottle of liquid euphoria.

    I did probe her a bit more about when and where she got it. She said she bought it directly from AVON here in Australia around 1999-2000 we think. I also remember her buying me some awesome metallic shimmer lip glosses at the same time. She said it was only a few dollars too!! If only we had bought 100 bottles back then, we could make a fortune now - mwahh haaa haaa :)

    Mum told me this morning that she hadn't really apprecieated the colours in it, because she doesn't usually wear dark polish, and had only layered it over light polishes.

    Good luck to anyone in finding it. Let me know how you go.

  23. It's not fair, most beautiful polishes are always old/discontinued :D
    (no, I'm joking, that's not ALWAYS true :P)

  24. Yay, I saw this post and checked an online auction site here in NZ and got a full bottle for $6 (around $5 USD). Feeling pretty lucky!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Trixtar - YAY for you - I saw that NZ auction listing (which had been there for ages) and hoped that someone who would appreciate it from NZ could scoop it up. That’s great. I hope your bottle is as good as mine!!

  26. Canada spells colour that way too.

  27. I just saw that listing on TM and noticed that it had been taken in the Q&A - Googled it and am now kicking myself that I didn't notice it before.

    Grats, Trixstar! You deserve it with that attention to detail :D

  28. I just discovered your blog :)! I have this same polish by Avon, only it is in a different shaped bottle and is called Morphing FX. There were a few other colors in the FX release(limited edition think they were duo or multichromes) but like a dummy, I got rid of them before I really got into nail polish :(.

  29. emmson5775 - cool Avon Morphing FX, I might have to google that to see what comes up. Which country are you in? Don't you hate it when you realize you threw out something so amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have 4 bottles of this. IT was orginially sold in 2001 in a collection Called Avon FX Nail Color. It came in Cherry, Lime, Khaki & Mocha. You were suppose to put this over the Duo-Chrome goodness of the other colors to make it even more Duo-Chrome. They were amazing. I have all of them.. but have misplaced Mocha & Cherry over the years...

  31. Ah, now I'm sorry I haven't had a look at an Avon catalog when this one was in it.
