Nail varnish sums up who I am most of the time… colourful, shiny and a little bit chipped. I don’t ever go without nail colour and it’s become as much of who I am as my fascination with hair. I re-paint my nails every two or three days, normally with the latest on-trend colours, occasionally just with something I fancy. There are so many nail varnish ranges out there, most of which are so focused on colour or drying quickly that they actually forget to make a decent formula. This is where Avon have come up trumps.
I was given a selection of their ‘Nailwear Pro’ colours to try a couple weeks ago and was instantly impressed and excited how on-trend the colours were – coral, lilac and green. The bottles were a decent size (12ml compared to most brands who are 8-10ml) and looked super sleek and stylish with their angular, chunky style. I have to admit that I didn’t expect much from the nail varnish itself, but I was very, very wrong.
The formula is thick and so really easy to apply. You don’t even really need two coats as one gives enough coverage to just leave it at that – I always put on two coats though, just so it lasts a bit longer. The colour result is bright and super shiny, competing easily with some of the most expensive nail enamels I’ve ever used. The best thing though is that even after three days there was absolutely no chipping! I normally ignore all the non-chip claims from brands, as this basically means no chipping as long as you don’t move your hands for a week. I typed (a lot), I washed up (not so much) and I faffed around as usual – my nails stayed practically perfect in every way.
Take a look at some of the colours below… Definitely a top tip from me – call the Avon lady!
