I have to admit that Avon releases some very nice shades of nail polish from time to time. Last September I was impressed by their greens. The fact that they chipped on me within 24 hours wasn’t very impressing. Although that bad experience (with chipping) wasn’t completely forgotten, I gave in and ordered three polishes. The beautiful swatches in the net are to blame. Here they are …

Avon - Nailwear Pro: Splendid Blue, Pink Radiance, Night Violet
Avon – Nailwear Pro: Splendid Blue, Pink Radiance, Night Violet

Pink Radiance is a pink foil. It’s highly pigmented. It’s a one coater if you apply it carefully. I don’t think it’s unique or anything. It’s nice anyway.

Night Violet has a misleading name if you ask me. I wouldn’t describe it as violet at all. It’s hard to describe, but definitely not violet. It’s more of a brown purple. Or something like that. The pigmentation is OK, but it’s a two coater.

Splendid Blue is a wonderful blue with a lot going on. In the bottle I see silver and purple sparkles. The purple isn’t visible on the nails. And the silver particles look green or even turquoise on the nails. I tried to capture its beauty but still it looks much prettier IRL. It’s a very nice polish and I don’t think I have anything like it. It’s very pigmented and it’s another one coater if you apply it carefully enough.

My favourite of the bunch is Splendid Blue. What about you? Which one is your favourite?

  1. Jaz imam pa čisto drugačno mnenje o njihovih lakih, meni osebno se zdijo super. :happy:
    Zdržijo mi do 6 dni (dva nanosa, večinoma brez nadlaka), čeprav veliko kuham in pomivam, moti me le da nimajo veliko odtenkov (vsaj meni všečnih). :think:

    Najljubše so mi tople barve kot npr. rdeča, roza, še najraje pa imam prosojne in komaj opazne barve.
    Med temi tremi je roza edini zame in si ga bom kupila, imam že rdečega z zlatim šimrom iz te kolekcije in je BOŽANSIKI!! :w00t:
    :yes:

  2. I don’t love Avon polishes – they take so long time to dry, chip easily, and the texture is a mess… but these colors look good!

  3. Imam Pink Radience nekih mjesec dana i na noktima sam ga imala ravno 3 minute! Činio mi se predivan u katalogu, ali na mojim noktima mi se nikako ne sviđa!
    Ne znam zašto je tako, jer mi je na tvojima super!

  4. I’m liking the “Night Violet”. It’s very interesting color, I’d love to try it out, too. Maybe I should give Avon a go at some point. :)
