I’ve fallen out of love a little bit with nail varnish recently. I think it’s probably a combination of mid-season blues, not having the time to continually change colour and feeling drab enough to want to stick to a pale pink all week long. I’ve always been one to wear loud colours, funky designs and matching outfits, so it’s taken a big box of polish from Avon to inject a little love back into my talons. This ‘pro’ range of polish is supposed to give you the look of a professional manicure, with shine that lasts up to ten days. The formula contains diamond dust and acrylic, both known for their strengthening and protection properties, giving your nails a high-gloss finish and a rock hard result.
The polish applies really easily to the nail, being not too runny and not too think, to create a perfect shape of colour. After two coats it sets well and even the palest colours come out looking striking. There’s something about this that subtly lets you know it’s a slightly superior polish, providing a great colour, smooth finish and glossy shine. Even the silver shade created a design with ease, whereas normally I find the low-end polishes hard to work with and difficult to manipulate. The applicator brush is easy to use and leaves minimal mess-ups, allowing you to precisely apply. Considering these polishes cost £6.00 I’m really impressed. I fell in love with the colour combination below, but I’ll be playing around with these shades for weeks to come.
