Avon Simply Pretty Nail Enamel-Pretty Plum Review, NOTD

Today I am going to review another shade from Avon Simply pretty range “Pretty Plum“. I am going to review Avon Simply Pretty Nail Enamel Mango Mania next which is a lovely rusty orangish red shade.

Price:- Rs.65 for 5ml

Shelf Life:- 2 years from the Mfg date.

My experience with Avon Simply Pretty Nail Enamel-Pretty Plum:-

Packaging:- The Simply Pretty nail enamels comes in small bottle packaging’s with a purple applicator handle. The length of the handle and the applicator is a bit small but the applicator bristles are longer and better too. They are nicely packed and aren’t frizzy or flared which gives a smooth application of the nail enamel.


Shade:- Pretty Plum is a purple-plum shade with an excessive silver shimmers. It sometimes gives an illusion of pink or purple shimmers in the liquid but couldn’t detect any. It isn’t a dark purple shade but a beautiful lighter purple shade with lavender undertones and lots of silver shimmers. The obvious shimmers are not ultra smooth and gives a fabulous glazy metallic finish to nail enamel.


Coverage/Finish:-The nail enamel goes a bit sheer in first coat but in 2-3 coats the color builds up to a soft purple/ plum shade with opaque coverage which is slightly lighter than the color in the bottle.

Formula:-The consistency of the nail enamel is thin which spreads smoothly over the nail. The flat brush applicator also does a good job in distributing the nail enamel evenly over the nails.


It dries fast and doesn’t get thickened at the nails tips with multiple coats. The nail enamel dries to a stunning metallic finish which is the real show stopper for me. The nail enamel stayed for almost 4-5 days on my nails with negligible chipping.

I didn’t touch this nail enamel for more than a month just because I had a little doubt about the shimmers in it as I am not a shimmery person and like matte nail enamels better but Pretty Plum truly surprised me. I pretty much liked the sparkly shimmery look on my nails and now, I can’t stop staring them. Simply pretty nail enamels are unexpectedly better than any other nail enamel in the similar price range and are my latest crush.

Recommendation:-  Avon Simply Pretty Nail Enamel-Pretty Plum has made a surprising wildcard entry in my Favorites Shimmery/Plum nail enamels list. The reflecting metallic finish just looks awesome. The streak-free formula combined with a good brush which distributes the color evenly adds another star to these affordable nail enamels.

I am definitely going to grab more shade from this range.(the list is ready with me for the next 3 nail enamels.)

In low budget nail enamels Avon Simply Pretty is a good option to try. Pretty Plum is a lovely shimmery plum shade to have in your nail paint collection. Highly recommended!
