Review - Avon True Colour BB 7-in-1 Nail Enamels
Hello ABC's!   I have 4 super nail enamel shades from the Avon True Colour BB 7-in-1 collection to share with you today. So what does BB stand for and what is the 7-in-1?   Well, BB stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm and is a product that claims to do the job of several other products and I’ve received confirmation directly from Avon that the benefits of the 7-in-1 are:   1. Creamy flawless colour 2. Smooths and evens 3. Covers imperfections 4. Prevents discolouration 5. Protects 6. Primes 7. Fills ridges   As well as all the above all Avon’s nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).   Let’s crack on with the individual shades, first up Lilac Love, a pretty pastel shade Next we have Restoring Beige, a creamy terracotta shade Here we have Perfect Pink, a pretty delicate shade And finally, Caring Creme, a very pale peach Perfect Pink & Caring Creme are quite similar and both needed 3 coats, maybe that why they smooth and even, cover imperfections and fill ridges because I applied so many layers!   Below is the set with and without camera flash so you can see what the shades look like in the bottles.  L-R Lilac Love, Restoring Beige, Perfect Pink, Caring Creme Which is your fave shade from the collection? Would you like to see more colours in the 7-in-1 range? Toodles!   Wendy Woo the Nail Guru *************************

Review - Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - So Jelly and Bittersweet
Aloha ABC's!   Last week I showed you two contrasting shades from the Avon True Colour range, and today I’m doing the same with two from the Mark Gel Shine range. First of all we have So Jelly, a fun mauve shade, slightly crelly, you certainly need at least 2 coats for full coverage. Your nails will pop with this adorable colour. Next, Bittersweet, a warm spiced pumpkin shade, very pretty and a super summery. Although these shades are worlds apart from each other, they team up so well and would look great worn together. I’d wear So Jelly with Bittersweet on my thumb and ring finger…..Oh, I might just try that! The perfect colour combo, reminds me of a Jolly Joker pansy As always, both applied superbly, come in 10ml bottles and have a good brush.   I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).   Toodles!

Review - Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - Holographic Capture & Futurist
Holo ABC’s!   Brochure 7 see’s the launch of 9 new dazzling shades in the Mark Gel Shine range.   3 of the shades have holographic pigments, 2 of which I’m going to show you today. The other 6 have pearl or shimmer finishes and swatches will follow over the next couple of weeks.   Drum roll please for your royal Holoness……… Holographic Capture & Futurist. I’ve taken photos with and without my camera flash. In the bright sunshine or bright lighting, the holo pigments come to life and are mesmerising. 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? First of all a little bit of sponging to blend the two shades together (left with camera flash, right without) Then I stamped with cupcakes As ever the nail enamels painted wonderfully and I applied 2 coats. 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 - Avon True Colour Nail Enamels - Royal Raspberry & Simply Cinnamon
Hello ABC's,    The two shades I'm going to share with you today are like chalk and cheese but pair up beautifully.   First up, Royal Raspberry, a sultry magenta shade, more of a damson or plum shade than raspberry, and definitely a 2 or 3 coater due to its crelly formulation. Onto Simply Cinnamon, a cross between an antique rose shade and peachy terracotta, with a creme formulation. So are you a Raspberry Ripple or a Cinnamon Swirl? Both applied superbly, come in 10ml bottles and have a good brush.    I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).    Toodles!

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 Mark Nail Enamels - Moody & Head In Clouds
How are you doin’ ABCs?   Here’s my latest review for a couple of Avon Mark Gel Shine Nails Enamels – Moody & Head In Clouds. Moody – a warm mink shade, classy and elegant. Moody? I’d say fantastically edgy!     Head In Clouds – a cool grey, if you’re not into pastels but want a light shade, this will be perfect.     Both super glossy, excellent pigmentation and easy to apply. 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 - 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

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
