Avon Gel Finish - Marine Blue

This is one of the recent Avon polishes. It the first gel type one I've ever used. I've never used proper gel polishes, so I have no way of comparing things!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (about 3 minutes for a coat). I swear, since I last bought Avon polishes (pre-summer 2013) the brush in them is certainly getting better. This is just one coat and I could not believe how shiny it was!! Mega glossy indeed. Lasted really well for a one coater. It is not quite the colour I had expected from the booklet, but I like it!

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 7/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 1
Finish = mega shiny - it was a kinda creamy formula
Removal = easy
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Avon rep

My Personal Rating = 7/10 nice colour and good quality :-)

  2. Nice colour, interesting. I like the shade. When it comes to gelly looks, I guess Barry M looks more gelly, but it doesn't last too long.

    1. It was a kinda creamy formula! It's a nice colour. This one lasted good and I'll need to get to trying the Barry M ones! :-)

  5. Oh now that's a gooorgeous blue! It's kind of off blue, really, almost kind of teal-like, and I like that about it.
