I haven’t done a nails of the day post for a few weeks. I’ve been quite poorly most of the time, so my nails have been a bit chipped and crappy looking 😀
I used to buy things from Avon fairly often when I was working, as someone there was a rep. It must have been at least a year now since I bought anything! My mother in law kindly gave me this nail polish – it is part of Avon’s Metallic Effects range, in the shade Jade Reflection. It looks like a straight silver colour in the bottle, but once it’s on the nails, the green really shines through!
It is a great formula, it applies quite thickly but really evenly. I could probably have just about got away with one coat if I was in a rush, but this is two coats. I used my usual topcoat, Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat. This nail polish lasted really well! I thought it might chip quickly as it’s metallic, but it lasted a good 4 or 5 days before it needed removing, which is pretty good in my experience.
I’d love to try other colours in this range (especially Copper Dream, which is stunning!), but sadly they don’t even sell this anymore! That’s the only downside with finding a product you like at Avon, as the stock changes so regularly. If you like this though, it looks like you can still find it on Ebay.
What do you think of this nail polish? Do you like the colour? Are there any Avon products you would recommend? Let me know in the comments!
