I purchased Avon speed dry nail enamel in strawberry, which is a bright pink shade for $3.49 a bottle from a local Avon sales representative, and I have to say I have been less than pleased with this nail polish. Now, Avon speed dry does live up to its name, it dries really fast, however this nail polish does not last very long on my nails. Also, I love bright and vibrant colors, but this shade just didn't suit me, as it just looks funny on my nails, which is weird because I wear bright and even neon pinks often. I feel that I have purchased much cheaper nail polishes that provide better results.
Personally it is always a gamble for me when I order any cosmetics from a catalog, as there is always a variation in the shade in person from in print.
