Avon is probably the only catalog sales network that I order from time to time. I do like their products, but the ordering process tends to be little bit too time consuming for me. I know, I know … I’m terribly impatient. A while ago Avon representative from Avon Štajerska asked us if we would be willing to review few of Avon products. Maestra and I went through their catalog, saw some of the things that looked interesting and accepted the challenge.

If you already browsed through the newest catalog, you probably spotted 5 new Avon Nailwear Pro nail polishes.

Avon Blue Escape is one of those gorgeous blue shades that slightly lean on the turquoise side but are still blue. And to spice it up, they added lots of blue shimmer to the mix. The downside of this shade is that it’s sheer – I needed 3 layers to cover-up VNL.

Avon Aqua Fantasy was also to my liking. Little bit richer in color than typical pastel shade with pearl-like shimmer wasn’t piece of cake to apply, but to be honest I never expect easy application when I get or buy this kind of a shade. To be fair, application did not suck, but was a little bit more difficult than with non-pastel shades. Color is a little more green IRL. 2 coats + top coat.

Avon Loving Lavender is kind of muted lavender with hint of warm undertone. It needs 2 coats for full opacity, application was OK, but I did have to shake it before use.

Avon Fuchsia Fun is one of those hot Barbie pink shades that a lot of people love … and I religiously avoid. :D Pink base is loaded with bluish-purple and pinkish shimmer. Formula is similar to the Blue Escape one, so I needed 3 layers to cover up visible nail line. Application was non problematic.

Avon Orange Creamsicle is pretty nice orange shade. It’s on the lighter side (darker on the nails than in bottle), but little bit muted. Formula is very similar to Loving Lavender one. 2 coats + top coat.

I didn’t have time to test staying power of new Avon polishes, so I’ll have to get back on you about that. I liked their drying time and brush though.

Price: 3,5 EUR for 12ml.

  1. Pozdravljene,
    Moram malo ”pojamrati” – nisem ravno navdušenec njihovih lakov za nohte. Sem v preteklosti kupila črn mat lak iz njihove kolekcije in moram resno priznati, da bolj neobstojnega laka še nisem kupila. Nanos je ekstremno težaven, saj se lak tako hitro suši, da preden drugič potegneš s čopičem že nastajajo grude. Nanos čez nadlak pa je bil popolnoma nemogoč, kot bi se vse skupaj odbijalo v smislu olje-voda. Nanos če je že uspel ni preživel prvega umivanja rok, se je kar odluščil …
    Glede na to da ni bil najcenejši sem bila zelo razočarana.
    Priznam pa da imam njihov en drug rdeč lak iz standardne ponudbe, pa je sprejemljivo obstojen.

    Glede na to da dajete same pozitivne komentarje, je mogoče kaj narobe z mojimi nohti.=)
    Ostala kozmetika, katero sem preizkusila pa je ok, sploh kakšna šminka me navduši.

    lp, Urša

    • Je bil lak že v osnovi mat? Ker so v večinoma vsi mat laki zeloooo neobstojni (tudi OPI …). Jaz vedno uporabim mat nadlak čez “navadnega”, ko si zaželim mat efekta. :yes:

      • jap osnova je bila mat. Ampak se mi vseeno zdi da bi lak moral zdržati saj en dan brez krušenja- če ravno ne ribaš wcja z agresivnim čistilom… sem potem šla na mat nadlak in je zadeva precej boljša. :yes:

        • Na žalost so bile izkušnje z večino mat lakov res porazne – krušenje po nekaj urah. Zato se je mat nadlak tako hitro prijel … pa še bolj uporaben je. :silly:
          Če se prav spomnim, so Zoya “semiš” lakci imeli še najboljšo obstojnost. :think:

  2. Sama sem velika navdušenka nad njihovimi izdelki (sploh laki so fantastični) in že komaj čakam, da vidim kaj imata še na zalogi :yes:
    Glede zgornjih odtenkov pa nimam veliko za povedati, žive barve nekako niso moja mehka točka, mogoče bo vijolični odtenek našel domek pri meni ostali pa žal ne :roll:

  3. Thank you for such a detailed review of the new polishes! I recently purchased the Aqua Fantasy color and the application for me was just perfect, I love polishes that cover in only 2 coats and I had no issue with application. I was curious about the other shades, the Blue Escape looked a little dark in the catalog but seeing it on your nails it is gorgeous and I will definitely buy!!!

    Btw I lovvvvve the aqua fantasy color it’s my new favorite, and mine isn’t all that green in real life it’s a little more muted and I get so many compliments when I wear it!

    Thanks again for sharing!!!!!! (:

    • We probably have differently calibrated monitors. :silly:
      I really can’t say that Aqua Fantasy was easy to apply, but as I said, it’s not horrible either. To color is very nice though. :nails:
