Avon - Polish Fail

Hello lovelies!

I recently bought some Avon Nailwear Pro+ Polishes. And I gotta say disappointment is an understatement! 

I got:
Fiery Sky
Cosmic Trip
Starry Night
Celestial Blue


Pros - I can't think of any...

Cons - 
The formula was like water. 
5-6 coats it was still sheer. 
The glitter didn't transfer to the nail well. 
It was just a runny mess. 

Here's some pics I took anyway...





Not the best swatches but there's only so many coats of polish you can paint before giving it up for a bad job. 

Have you tried these? Or have you had a polish be as big a fail?

  2. That sucks, I have recently tried a bunch of Avon polishes and they were great. I just ordered the Brushed Metal collection... http://shop.avon.com/product.aspx?pf_id=48687

  3. That's not good. Just bought these myself, not had a chance to try them out yet!

  4. I've seen some posts that say they are much better when worn over a black base. The flakies then show up better and you don't need too many coats. Perhaps try that?

  5. This is a bit of a disappointment, I;d heard good things about AVON polishes :-)

  6. These are definitely meant for layering...

  7. I've returned them, I reckon even with layering they'd be really underwhelming, unfortunately in the UK we don't have as good an Avon polish selection as the USA xo

  8. Aww man that sucks! I've had really good experience with Avon Polishes. They look really wattery in the bottle in your pictures. Maybe it's just the finish of those polishes because the creams from them are excellent.
    Sorry to see you've had such a terrible experience!

  9. Such a shame cos they look like such good toppers, sometimes it's just not meant to be. Well done for an honest review!

  10. your right about it, and I am also very unhappy about it :-( I have all four of them as well. I'm into nail art and I am not gonna say all avon polishes are bad cos I'm really very happy of all the other polishes I have of them. It's just this four bottles and that opal glitter one, I'm really not happy about it :-( all I now can do with that four polishes is use it for a top coat.

I'm trying.

Hi! So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well. I had drafted some posts a while back (which I will still go ahead and post). I never got round to posting them at the time because I had an iPhone and the app just didn't want to work for me.
I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting. So what's been happening since I last posted?  Well I met a guy (on Tinder of all places), we got engaged last November (I'll do a proper post on this), and we got marries this September!  We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Japan and for the past month its been back to reality. I am going to change this blog a bit.  Before it could have always been classified as a beauty blog. Now I think it'll be more of an eclectic blog (by the way check out She's Eclectic one of my all time favourite bloggers). Anyway,  sorry about all the words and lack of pictures bit I hope to rectify that soon. Bye for now.

Money Smart Nail Art Competition Entry

Hi all!
Wow!  I'm really shocked, MoneySupermarket.com have invited me to participate in their Money Smart Nail Art Bloggers Competition.  This means I am in with the chance to win a prize worth £300, how amazing would that be!


Anyway for my regular followers you will know that I'm mad on leopard print!  So I thought what better design to do a tutorial on.  
Materials Required: Base Coat - I use OPI Matte Nail Envy Selection of polishes - cremes are best for opacity but you can use glitters if you build them up Nail Art pen or Dotting Tool  Top Coat - I use Seche Vite

Paint your nails with the base coat to protect your nail from staining (I also find that Nail Envy encourages nail growth). *A good tip is before you start, wipe your nails with some nail polish remover, this is called squeaking the nail, it will remove any excess oil, making your mani last longer.

Paint your nails your chosen colours, any colours work but I've chose a few of the Barry M Gellies (which are c…

Pastel Polka Dots

Hello lovelies!
A lazy Friday night in resulted in playing with polish and with studs. 

Polishes used: Lime Crime - Parfait Day Treasures By Tan - Gramma Cupcake

I was in the mood for some spring pastels to brighten up this horrid grey weather we've been suffering recently. 

I added the studs as an afterthought, I was going to attempt some freehand art but I love how these turned out.
