Reformulated Nail Shades by Avon

Alesha Dixon, the Beauty Ambassador for Avon has introduced 13 more shades in their Nailwear Pro + range with their formulas apparently reformulated. I love Avon Nail Paints is a fact. But I do hate their formula is another fact. What's even more annoying is how beautifully they apply, how glossy and radiant they appear on application and how pathetically and quickly they chip on the nails in just 12 hours, let alone the 12 days that Avon claims. 

I am a busy person and don't have the time to keep topping up my Nail Paint and I am sure most of us expect any standard varnish to last more than 3 days at least. Unfortunately this does not live up to the claim of having a strong formula and lasting more than a week.

Will I still be wearing them? Of course. For £5 a pop, the colours in the range are bright, super glossy and fabulous, very Chanel-esque so it's not going to break the bank for sure if you want to experiment without worrying about longevity. 

Has anyone else had the same problem or am I the odd one here?

Love the colours, but if a varnish is going to chip after just 12 hours, I don't care how cheap it is, it's not worth my time to apply and wait to dry. Perhaps a kick-ass top coat could make these last longer without chipping?
