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.

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

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! 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 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

Season's Greeting ABC's!   Christmas, followed by the New Year is just a few days away, so here’s a couple of sparklicious party season nail shades to show you from the Avon True Nailwear Pro+ range.   First up Violet Gleam . This shade certainly does gleam, a pretty violet with white frosting.       And if Violet Gleam isn’t bold enough, then take a look at Pink Flicker , a coppery red crammed with silver shimmer – woah!       Both splendidly sparkly, you certainly get your shimmer on with these two. Two coats for full coverage, super formulation, good brushes, 10ml bottles. I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).   What colour are you wearing on your nails this Christmas?   Toodles!

Review - Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel - Blue Belle
Good Morning ABC's!   Today I awoke to a frosty morning but the sky is oh so blue, just like my nails!   I can't wait to share with you Blue Belle from the Avon True Colour range, such a pretty shade. The loveliest palest blue, a cool shade, great to team up with jeans and a crisp white shirt. The polish glided onto my nails, it has a non-streaky formulation and good brush. Two coats for full coverage and my photos are without top coat, however, I applied top coat later for durability.       I used my Blue Belle base for a Christmas mani, well it is that time of year! I sponged my tips with Mark Gel Shine Sea My Nails and added some cute festive water decals. Merry Christmas everyone!   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 two tone Nail Glitter !!✨🌟
I am in love with this mark gold nail glitter!! I have used the Colour Trend Fashion Nail Enamel in Icon, along with the mark. Two Tone Nail Glitter in Gold. Also the Gel Shine lasting finish top coat. The gold and the red are perfect match for the Christmas season. Would definitely recommend as its a lovely way to jazz up any nail varnish for Christmas or any occasion. Only negative i would say is it is quite fiddly to put on and I did make a bit of a mess 😅

Review - Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamel - Sea My Nails
Hello BC's,   Sea My Nail is a tantalizing turquoise from the Mark Gel Shine nail enamel range. The piercing blue shade is reminiscent of a paradise lost island with clear blue seas, or perhaps the semi-precious turquoise gemstone. A cool shade, great for fingers and toes. As with all the Mark Gel Shine nail enamels, the formulation is excellent, 2 coats for full coverage and a super glossy finish. My photos are without top coat to show you how glossy the finished result is.     Do you see the sea? Do you? Do you know what I see…….Santa. Yep, Santa. Over Sea My Nail I sponged Avon Iceberg White onto the tips of my nails, waited for the tips to dry and then applied Santa water decals.  Just goes to show you can use a colour any time of the year.   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 - Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel - Real Red
Hello ABC’s!   Today’s mani is the perfect Christmas Red shade. Please may I introduce Real Red from the Avon True Colour collection. A slightly crelly formulation (you can see your nail line through the polish), it applied easily and is chip resistant. This is two coats without top coat and has a super glossy finish. I love red nails, I find them empowering, bold and schexy! And if you’re not a lover of red in your fingernails, this shade is excellent for toenails. Release your inner Mrs Claus with this festive red! Decent brush, good formulation and 10ml bottle. I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).   Ho! Ho! Ho! Wendy Woo the Nail Guru

Review - Avon Gel Shine Nail Enamel - Periwinkles
Hello ABC's!   With the nights drawing in and it’s dark on the way home from work, I need something to remind me of the daylight I’m missing and blue sky. So I’ve gone for Periwinkles from the Mark Gel Shine nail enamel range to brighten up my day. A stunning sky blue / baby blue, to beat the blues!   I applied 2 coats for an amazing coverage. My photos are without top coat to show you how glossy the gel shine is, however, I did apply top coat afterwards for durability. As with all Mark Gel Shine nail enamels, Periwinkles is well pigmented and a great formulation. I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).   Bye for now,    Wendy Woo the Nail Guru
