A Manicure a day...

Keeps winter blues away. 

Jealous much

The ladies at Avon recently sent home the entire range of Avon Nailwear Pro ready to release this summer. I was ecstatic to see them waiting for me when I came home from work. Well who wouldn't be eh?

Just look at all those gorgeous shades. My immediate favourites at a glance were the coral, yellow and pastel green. These creamy sorbet shades are currently in-trend on the high street, on the runway and I imagine even in make-up now and I simply cannot get enough of them. 

But for some very bizarre reason, the girly girl in me chose purple to try on first and although I have tried similar shades before, this one is so beautiful! It has silver-violet light reflecting particles, an immensely glossy finish and is quite opaque to give full coverage in the first two coats.
Aah and the colour that won me over! I have lost the names for these as they were on the boxes but its distinctive enough for any one to recognise. 

It's a serene yet uplifting aqua blue, minty green or pastel blue, what ever you'd like to call it. Some of you might think such colours would only look good on walls, but I personally am a huge fan of such shades. Looking at them makes me so happy, its unbelievable! 

Again, two coats and a slap of Seche Vite on top and I am good to go for a week. It transfers pretty exact as it looks in the bottle too in my opinion.
Besides these, there is a milky-nude pink and a creamy yellow that I have my eyes glued on. They shall be up on the blog soon as the season's just perfect to sport such chirpy colours and it gives me a reason to flaunt different manicures every two days week .

Overall, the Nailwear Pro range by Avon has pretty good shade range divided perfectly between trendy,classics and neutrals, a considerably better coverage compared to high-street brands and an apt colour payoff. I still feel they wouldn't last more than two days without a top coat so do invest in a good one. 

If I am correct, these are up for release in May so a long time till you can get your hands on it but at least there's something to look forward to eh?

The purple is lovely - love the violet-blue flash in it. I'm not normally a big fan of purple but that is very pretty. x

Does the mint colour wear well? I got the navy colour and it kind of flaked off right after it dried.

Alina said...

@The Procastinator - I haven't tried the Navy one yet but on swatching on one nail, the formula was too thin and had no coverage somehow :(

The Mint is significantly better in formula and coverage and does not flake :)
