Review - Avon Color Trend Nail Enamels - Icon & Hot
The sun has got his hat on Hip hip hip hooray! Go and grab your Avon And paint your nails away!   Yesterday (Saturday), I enjoyed the lovely sunny weather and the temperature is finally rising, time for some hot nails on both fingers and tootsies!   When Avon had the crazy bonkers deal of 5 for £5 on the color trend nail enamels I stocked up on my missing shades   Tadah…… Icon is a warm plum red, this would be a perfect shade for Autumn. Hot is exactly that – hot hot hot! What a cracking bright red, this one is deffo going on my toes. Both applied very well, 2 coats and super glossy. Color Trend is Avon’s budget friendly range and the nail enamels are super, you can treat yourself without breaking the bank. Inexpensive nail enamels with stylish results.   So what did I do with my manis?   I applied silver water decals over Icon Black glitter heart nail stickers over Hot   I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 8ml bottle.   Toodles!   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru (aka Crazy Cat Lady  ) **************************************************

Review - Avon True Colour Nail Enamels - Mauve Rose and Dusty Fog
Hello ABC’s!   Today I have two, very lovely, neutral shades to share with you from the Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ collection. Mauve Rose is a creamy vintage rose. A soft pinky nude shade which will go with everything, I love love love this delicate tone. Dusty Fog is a smooth grilac (grey/lilac), softer than grey with a warm undertone, again a fabulous neutral and extremely wearable shade. Both shades are excellent pigmented, applied wonderfully and come in a 10ml bottle.  Super glossy finish, my photos are without any top coat and camera flash.   So what did I do with my Mauve Rose Mani?  I applied a decorative nail foil for a touch of floral loveliness. I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.   Toodles!

Review- Mark Gel Shine- Futurist
I recently ordered the Mark. Gel shine nail enamel in Futurist and I would definitely say I’m rocking the mermaid mani  🧜🏼‍♀️😄!! Out of all 9 shades in this range that are in the book, I think Futurist is definitely my favourite but can’t wait to order more.   Above I have taken a photo without my camera flash in natural light.  When applying the varnish, it was lovely and smooth and I only needed one coat. I thought I was going to need more than in the beginning but after dipping the brush in a couple of times I had a perfect even layer that wasn’t even streaky either.       Above is with my camera flash and I love that you can slightly see the holographic and metallic finish in bright lights (like my camera flash and also the sunshine) I also added the Gel Shine top coat for the long lasting finish and shine. As you can see I also added some of the Mark two tone nail glitters to top off  that mermaid mani 😉   Would of course definitely recommend 😁   Chloe X

How to get healthier, stronger nails.
Hi Beauty Connects!   I'm going to put my hands up, I'm an acrylic abuser! I've been 'addicted' to acrylic extensions now for about 3 years.   I've recently been totalling up how much I've been spending each year and along with the damage I've been doing to my nails, I decided to have a break (or give them up completely) at the beginning of January.    I was shocked to see how brittle and damaged my nails were underneath the layers of acrylic. Literally doing anything from buttoning up a shirt, to reaching into my purse leads to another nail breaking.            I'm now on a mission to get my nails back to their former, pre- extension state...   Of course, the first thing I did was head straight to the Avon brochure (well online actually) to see what I could get my hands on.    I'm currently using True Colour Nail Experts Miracle Growth and Strength Serum  and applying it to my bare nails daily.     When I went out at the weekend and wanted some colour on my nails I began with using the True Colour Nail Experts Ridge Filling Base Coat which really smoothed out my nails ready for a coat of Mark. Gel Shine Nail Enamel in Barely There .          I've been using bucket loads of Avon Care Conditioning Cocoa Butter Hand, Nail & Cuticle Cream which, luckily, I've always loved and have always been in a routine of applying this 4 or 5 times a day. The cream definitely makes my hands feel soften but I'm interested to see what it can do for my nails!       One week in and my nails are feeling slightly stronger and I'm not so nervous about breaking them however, I still have a lot of peeling and brittleness.    I'll check back in next week and let you know how I'm getting on and what I've been using    Do you have any tips on how to get healthier, stronger nails especially after having acrylics?     Leigh x

Review - Avon True Colour Nail Enamels - Blossoming Utopia & Enchantment
Watcha doing ABC’s?   I’m still waiting for the pink blossom to appear on our trees which is oh so pretty and means spring is on its way. Maybe the cold weather is delaying the big bouncy blooms from bursting into life and make everywhere look lovely.   So while I wait for the impending burst of springtime magic, I’ll wear pink blossom shades on my nails, namely Avon True Colour Blossoming Utopia and Enchantment. Blossoming Utopia, is the lighter of the two, a pale baby pink, soft and delicate. Enchantment is a bright medium pink, a super shade for both fingers and toes, it certainly is enchanting. Both applied wonderfully, good pigmentation and a nice brush.  My nails are pink and perky!   I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.   Toodles!   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru *************************

Review - Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - Pop Art & Over Intensified
Greetings from the sea ABC’s – today I am a Mermaid!   Today’s review is for two of the new shades from the Mark Gel Shine Range. Pop Art, an ocean blue shimmer and Over intensified, a sparkling sea green.   Pop Art – a bright royal blue with lots of shimmer which looks white or silver but when reflected from the blue shade gives a green shimmer effect.     Over Intensified – a lush emerald green packed with shimmer   Mermaid they are, Holographic the are not. They have a metallic finish and I applied two coats.   So what did I do with my mani? Well, after applying Over Intensified, I sponged my nail tips with Pop Art to give a gradient effect.   Pretty huh? But it wasn’t enough to satisfy my inner mermaid. I stamped a scale effect on top and swish swish there’s my tail, off I swim and I’m basking in a warm blue lagoon!     I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.   Toodles   Wendy Woo the Secret Mermaid x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x

Review - Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - Glowing Vignette, Illuminize and Perfect Light
Hiya ABC’s!   Following on from my recent post showing you 2 holographic shades of the 9 new Mark nail enamel range, I’m going to share with you my swatches for the 3 lightest colours.   Glowing Vignette, Illuminize and Perfect Light     More than just shimmer nail enamels, all three have fine golden glitter particles, however, they are not holographic. I was hoping all 9 new shades would be holographic, but in fact, only 3 of them are, being Holographic Capture, Cosmic Flush and Futurist.   Anyhoo, onto the swatches. For all shades I applied 3 coats.   First up Glowing Vignette, a pearlised cream with fine gold glitter particles     Below under natural light   Below under artificial light, you can really see the fine gold glitter particles     Illuminize – a light golden shade with fine gold glitter particles   Below under artificial light     Perfect Light – soft light pink with fine gold glitter particles   Below Perfect light with and without camera flash I was intrigued to see how Perfect Light compared to Metallize Me, they're similar but different. If you like soft, pale shimmery shades then these are the ones for you.   I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.   Toodles!   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x

Check out my video below.   HOLOGRAPHIC CAPTURE - Below with camera flash   Below under natural lighting   FUTURIST - below with camera flash   Below under natural lighting So what did I do with my manis?

Review - Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - I Pink I Can & Surebet
Hello ABC's!   I feel Spring is in the air with the days getting longer, daffodils blooming with a nod to the new season, and when the sun shines bright like today it makes me want to wear pastels on my nails.   So, without further ado, let me share my swatches for Avon Mark Gel Shine nail enamels named ‘ I Pink I Can ’ and ‘ Surebet ’. I Pink I Can is a baby pink, bright yet soft and pretty. The shade reminds me of sugared mice and candy floss. I applied 3 coats for full even coverage. Surebet is a soft dreamy peach, warmer in tone compared to the cool I Pink I Can, deliciously sweet like peach melba! I applied 2 coats. What are you wearing on your nails this weekend, something soft and pastel, bright and bold, or sparkly glitter?   I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.   Have a fantastic weekend everyone!   Toodles!   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x

Review - Avon Color Trend Nail Enamels - Tempt, Truth & Scene
Hello ABC's!   There are 3 new nail enamel shades joining the Avon Color Trend range, a black named Tempt, a white named Truth and a grey named Scene. The budget-friendly nail enamels are super glossy and have a chip-resistant finish and come in 8ml bottles.  I applied 3 coats for the white and grey, and 2 coats for the black.  Photo's are without top coat to show you how glossy they are.   And they water marble too! I couldn’t resist creating a water marble mani with these 3 new shades which obviously compliment each other. As with all Avon's nail enamels, the Avon Color Trend range are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).   Toodles! Wendy Woo the Nail Guru x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x

Enchanted Nails
I’ve gone for a pinky colour this month, the nailwear pro+ in the shade Enchanted.     I usually go for a gel polish but the colour of this tempted me as I like a nice girly pink.  And I wasn’t disappointed, the colour went on nicely and gave a good even coat.  My nails pictured have two coats of the true colour nailwear prp+ in enchanted and a top coat.   I’m really pleased with them - bring on February- the other half’s Birthday, Valentines and a week away for half term.

Review - Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel - Tranquility
There are five new pretty pastel shades from the Avon True Colour Range launched in C4. Four of them are crème shades and one shimmer, and it’s the shimmer one I’m going to review.   As soon as I got Tranquility out of the box I knew it was going on straight away! Tranquility is a unique shade, a soft creamy peach with fabulous gold shimmer. Soft, delicate, elegant and mesmerising. A perfect summer shade and bridal/bridesmaid shade. The photo below is without camera flash under artificial lighting, gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS! At only £3 a bottle AND a free nail file in C4, why not treat yourself to a bottle or 2 or 3…. The new shades have new packaging with a splash of pale lilac and black design on the front of the box I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.   Toodles   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x

Review for Avon nailwear pro+
I fancied having a change instead of wearing just one nail varnish on my nails I opted for 3 plus a top coat. I love these nail varnishes there is a good selection of colours to choose from, the top coat gives a long lasting shine. The corrector pen is well loved as you can see as it helps give me a professional salon quality end look.   Products I used to create this look is Avon nailwear pro+ in colours; smokiest plum (applied on baby finger nail), rosie gold (next), naked truth and the Mark gel shine lasting finish top coat.

Re: How to get healthier, stronger nails.
Well done  @leighmavon  for making the decision to go acrylic free!     Stick with it, keep moisturising your cuticles and nails, hydration is key to healthier nails.  If you don't have time to moisturise during the day, keep your serum on your bedside table and apply at night, letting your nails replenish while you sleep.   I always wear some sort of base coat at all times, to prevent peeling, give them a little protection and give them a shine.  Always keep a nail file handy for any emergency snags and just be conscious and aware of your nails, you know my motto, your nails are you jewels, not your tools, eg no opening tins and cans with your nails, use something else to lift the ring pull.    And just think of the fun you can have changing your nail polish as often as you like and not being stuck with a shade for 3 weeks!  You'll be saving money and time, more pennies and hours to spend with your fur babies!

Review - Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - Glimmering Haze & Bows and Dols
Hello ABC's!   Further to my review of Illuminate Me and Fan Girl here’s my review for two more of the new pearl shades from the Mark Gel Shine range, Glimmering Haze and Bows and Dolls .     First of all, we have a soft shimmer grey called Glimmering Haze , more of a grey than a silver, the pearl lifts the shade   Followed by Bows and Dolls , a pretty blue shimmer with a touch of lilac   Glimmering Haze is a cool neutral shade and Bows and Dolls is a delightful spring shade, both with a shimmery pearl finish.  I applied two coats for full coverage and they applied easily.   And here's the 4 new pearl shimmer shades I have from the Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamel Range, have you tried them yet?  Do you have the Pearls On Ice shade which I don't have?  I'd love to see your swatches!

Review - Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - Illuminate Me & Fan Girl
Happy New Year ABC’s!   New Year, new nail colours – yay!   There are five new pearl shades from the Mark Gel Shine range and today I’m sharing two of them with you - Illuminate Me and Fan Girl.  The pearl finish provides oodles of soft shimmer.     First up Illuminate me , a pastel mermaid green, how scrummy is this colour! Here's Illuminate Me under natural lighting, which gives a more accurate view of the shade Next, Fan Girl , a soft and girly lilac, simply delicious! Both dreamy and delicate shades, two coats for full coverage and applied excellently.   So, what did I do next with my mani?  I knew as soon as I saw the colour combo I felt something magical would happen…..   After painting my nails with Illuminate Me, I sponged the tips with Fan Girl to merge the colours (this is called a gradient) But that wasn’t enough, I could hear the magic calling me, so I stamped my nails with Unicorns! I wish you all a very Happy New Year and hope it’s as magical as Unicorn poop!   Toodles!   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x   I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.

Review - Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel - Cosmic Blue
Greetings ABC’s!   As I’m writing this post the weather has turned for the worse, snow is falling and being blown around by the wind.   I feel like I’m in my very own snow globe.  But while the weather is hellish, my nails are heavenly.  Here’s Cosmic Blue from the True Colour Nailwear Pro+ collection is an astral blue with lots of divine shimmer.     The first coat went on streaky.  If this happens, don’t worry, a second coat usually provides full coverage.  My bottle didn’t contain any mixing balls which help mix the pigment and the suspension base when shaken.   I don’t know if it’s just this bottle or this shade that doesn’t contain mixing balls as my other Nailwear Pro+ and Mark nail enamels do contain mixing balls.   After a second coat, the result was perfect, an imperial royal blue with luxurious shimmer.   Photos are without top coat.   For the final result, I embellished my nails with silver glitter heart nails stickers.   I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.   Are you snowed in?  Take the opportunity to paint your nails!   Toodles   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0
