      see review

      I bought this from the Avon range which cost just £2.95 I think it was in the sale at the time so prices may vary. This seems to be only available to buy from the Avon catalogue so is not available from the high street stored.

      This was available from several different colours to chose from, the one I bought was velour, which is quite a bright red, there are colours to suit most people from light to dark colours so you would find a colour to suit yourself.

      When I first applied the nail varnish, it did not seem to go on thickly enough for my liking so once it was dry which only took a few minutes I needed to apply a second coat, after this one the nail varnish looked more to how I like it to look and that again took just a few minutes to dry. Once both coats had been applied the nail varnish did look really good.

      The brush on the nail varnish did seem a little smaller than the usual brands i buy and so did the lid. It was almost as if it was designed for the smaller hands, and at times I found it harder to grip with it been smaller. Although it was still pretty easy to apply and I found the smaller brush made it easier to get into the small parts of your nail without going over on to your finger.

      The nail varnish did not last quite as long as I had hoped and it did start to chip away on the second day of me wearing it, which I was quite disappointed about. The nail varnish I would recommend but only for a night out, as after that it will start to chip away and you would have to reapply this on most days. It was only cheap and was easy to apply so for the price it is quite good, just a pity it does not last as long as I had hoped for.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Color Trend nail varnish is my best budget buy

      WHAT IS IT?

      Nail varnish from Color Trend.  Color Trend is sold by Avon and is their version of a young persons range of cosmetics, this nail varnish is very cheap but the shades are on trend and the varnish is quite good quality.

      APPLICATION

      All of the Color Trend nail varnishes need at least 2 coats because it is a thin varnish and doesn't cover my nails very well. The colour builds up with each coat and it dries quickly so doesn't take much extra time to apply. I like to apply nail varnish when I am reviewing it so that I can be accurate and today I am wearing Berry Nude.  The bottles are small so the handle for the brush is very short and that makes it a bit harder to hold than longer brushes. The brush is short and that is good because it does not fan out while I am applying colour to my nails and lets me get a neat straight edge.  Berry Nude is not very glossy when it dries but some of the other Color Trend nail varnishes are a lot more shimmery, I apply a top coat to the ones that are duller.

      WHAT I THINK

      I use many different nail varnishes on my own nails and my clients but have always liked Color Trend even though I have a large collection of more expensive polishes.  Berry Nude is a soft pink that has got a pearl effect, it is a warm shade that would suit lots of different skin tones but I think it looks best on young skin.  

      I like how quickly this nail varnish dries because it helps me save time but with some of the brighter shades I have to apply 4 coats for even colour so that adds time.  It can be hard to remove and if you are going to wear a bright or dark shade you need to use a good base because it will stain your nails.

      Color Trend nail varnishes chip easily and that is a shame because that is the only disadvantage, even just washing a cup can cause a chip like happened to me this morning after I had only been wearing the nail varnish for 2 hours.  I repaired the chip easily because I am wearing the pale shade and only 2 coats but a dark purple one in the same range that needs 4 coats will not repair without leaving a visible seam.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      Color Trend nail varnish costs £3 for an 8ml bottle and it is available in about 18 shades.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A not so good nail varnish from Avon's Color Trend range.

      ~*~*~ Avon Color Trend Nail Colour ~*~*~


      ~ What is it? ~

      These are nail varnishes from the Colour Trend range by Argos, there are a few different shades available as well as different ranges within the whole range.


      ~ Why I bought it ~

      I bought this particular nail varnish quite some time ago, I would estimate that it was sometime in the summer but I have only recently found it after it was put in a box in a drawer in my utility room. I bought it because it was on some sort of offer which is quite a regular occurance with Avon. I am not sure how much I paid for it but I am guessing it was a decent offer as they usually retail for £3.00 for an 8ml bottle.

      I chose the Lovely Lilac colour as this was a colour I didn't have in my nail varnish collection.


      ~ Using it ~

      I use this in the same way I do any other nail varnish and simply paint it onto my nails in two coats. The bottle is small and round, the lid is also a thin short rounded lid which also houses the applicator brush. I find with the lid being so dainty makes this quite uncomfortable to use. I prefer a chunkier brush as this makes it easier to apply the nail varnish to my nails. The smaller brush seems to make it a bit more fiddly for me.

      I have only used this once and I have to say I wasn't completely taken with the results. I applied one thinner coat waited for this to dry completely and then applied a second coat, whilst this did give god coverage I didn't like the colour much. The Lovely Lilac shade has a sheen to it and this isn't really something I like, I prefer a more solid colour block without the frosted look but I left it on as my nails were painted and I couldn't be bothered to re-do them!


      ~ My Thoughts ~

      After deciding to leave the varnish on my nails I carried on my day as usual and got on with the usual stuff, playing with the baby, changing the baby, cleaning, cooking, cleaning, playing with the kids, more cleaning etc...!

      By the end of the day I noticed that daily life had really taken it's toll on my nails and the colour had suffered somewhat. The edges of most of my nails were chipped and they just looked really scruffy to be honest. I took it off with nail varnish remover and it came off easily enough which was a plus!

      Even at the low offer prices this is a nail varnish I have avoided buying since, I have bought the three colours in the Dazzlers range however and I have been more than impressed with these.


      I don't particularly like the Color Trend Nails colours but other nail products in the range do fair better so I wouldn't avoid them all, I think it's all down to personal preference anyway but I wouldn't recommend these anyway.


      Being an Avon product they are only available from Avon and you can get these through a local rep or online at www. avonshop.co.uk.
      I have also seen some of the Color Trend varnishes available on ebay.

      Thanks for reading :o) x

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      decent little pots for a night out

      I love a bit of nail polish, and being quite girly I like vibrant pinks and purples as the majority of my collection. As an avid avon buyer it was only a matter of time before I tried their cheap Color Trend nail polishes as a small and bargain collection of nail polish.

      They come in small 8ml clear, glass pots with a small black handle where inside the pot the brush is attached. The brush is quite small, so for me I find it a lot easier to use when painting my toe nails, but for hands I find it takes a few more brush strokes to get the polish all over my nails.

      In terms of consistency, I find this polish to be rather thin in comparison to my Barry M, Rimmel and Boots no.7 nail polishes which are considerably thicker. In order to give it a decent look, I would recommend at least 3 coats to create a solid look of colour on the nails, whereas with other brands I generally opt for only 2. Considering the pots are small enough already, this tends to encourage me to not use this polish too often as it will not last long at all!

      I have found the polish to dry reasonably well, but in fairness I always use a quick freeze dry spray from Avon which I swear by. It helps my polish to dry a lot quicker, and as I use a clear top coat which dries reasonably quick too, altogether this is not a lengthy process.

      As for longevity, I have to say that this is where Avon polishes - irrespective of the collection (pro enamel/color trend etc) - really are a let down. Literally a day in, and the chips are shown and just make my nails look super tacky. No-one would think I had freshly painted them the evening before! Whilst the colours are glam and look really lovely on, but they just don't last long enough to be appreciated by anyone else!

      These come in 8 different shades, and I own the lovely lilac colour. I bought this pot for £1.50 which I think was a special offer but in the brochure the prices generally fluctuate, and will come in a deal where a pot is £3 but buy one get one free or something. Nevertheless, I think they are decent little pots of polish but they really are average. Nice enough to wear for a night out, but by the next day, rub it off and paint on something else!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not a good nail varnish at all

        Yet another nail varnish I have tried and tested, I have so many but yet still always buy more.

        Colour Trend products by Avon are rather 50/50, sometimes they are awesome other times, not quite so good. They are more aimed at teenagers than older women like me but I still think they should keep the same quality of their products no matter what age they are aiming at. I thought I would try this as I found some on eBay for £1.50 and never being one to turn down a bargain bought some.

        When I received the nail varnish, I noticed that the bottle was tiny compared to normal nail polish bottles. Maybe £1.50 wasn't as much of a bargain as I first thought! I had purchased the purple shade - peekaboo and also a brown chocolate shade called Deluxe. The lid unscrewed to reveal a brush which on the brown shade was split, due to this split, the brush had started working its way up the brush holder, this made using the brush impossible as the brush was now too wide to get it on my nail. I didn't send this back for a refund as I got it from eBay and not Avon itself. The purple varnish was still a disappointment though. The colour was nice but the coverage was appalling. It was weak and runny, almost like it had been watered down. Due to its watery appearance, it didn't cover well at all, it needed many coats and even after applying four coats, it didn't look very nice at all.

        Although I discarded the purple varnish, I did clean the brush and exchange it for the one in the brown bottle, this varnish fared slightly better than the purple shade. It was still watery but the coverage seemed to be better, it was less streaky and needed less coats. I don't know if it is eBay or Avon I wouldn't recommend as buying from eBay can also be a little hit or miss. I wouldn't recommend it based on my experiences of it thought.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A cheap nail varnish that chips

        **The nail polish**

        When I can across this in the Avon catalogue I decided at £1.50 it was worth a try. Colour trend is Avon's bargain make up range which I have found to be a little hit and miss. There is not a great deal of shades available in this range, and I do find most of the colour is bright rather than deep and warm. I like it as it gives a lovely shine once applied to the nails which is not too over the top yet still looks pretty. I find that the colours suit day to day wear a little more than a more glam colour for special occasions.

        I chose the dusty pink shade, and this is a lovely light colour that looks lovely on my nails. It is a nice subtle colour but still adds a little sparkle to my nails. I find that the pot is a little smaller than other brands I use, which in turn means the application brush smaller too. The lid is comfortable enough to hold while applying it to my nails easily. I do find because it is a small brush you have more control over it in application. With a few strokes of the brush the whole nail can be covered easily.

        **Applying and results**

        The lid of the pot is a little smaller than usual so I needed to get used to holding it, but once I had applied it to my first few nails it felt comfy enough. I find that the brush is a good size to coat the nails easily; however the colour is not very pigmented so I do feel I need to add two coats. I also find the consistency of the polish is a little runny, not so much so it falls off the brush on my nails. I like to wipe it against the bottle neck so it takes away any excess before I begin and I find this work well to stop it from pooling on my nails.

        Once I apply the varnish to my nails it dry's fairy quickly so I can quickly apply the second coat. This means although it does take a little more time than other nail polishes it is not too much so I am put off wearing this brand. Also with one coat the varnish looks streaky no matter how much you try to get rid of the strokes from the brush, it will need a second coat to cover these. I like to add three coats just as it lasts a little longer. I find that three coats goes on very easily without my nails looking messy or too built up. However this means that when it begins to chip it peels of very easily and one small chip can mean the whole of the colour is ruined.

        The nail varnish does not last very well at all. I apply it the evening before on most occasions as this is when it is best for me when the children are sleeping. It starts off well with the polish looking nice and fresh on my nails. The finish is even and although I have to apply a few coats for it to look all one shade, my nails do not look messy or uneven. However, as soon as I begin my daily routine the varnish begins to chip very easily. Sometimes after a few hours I find I need to re do them as my nails look like they were done a few days ago rather than a few hours.
        If I add three coats of varnish rather than two it does last a little longer so this is what I tend to do. I still have to remove it after two days maximum as otherwise they look tired and chipped. The nail polish comes off very easily with remover, but I also find once it begins to chip you can actually peel it off your nails in large amounts. This is why you need to touch it up if it begins to chip as otherwise it will come away in big strips which is not a very good look. It is a shame that it does not last well as it actually look rather nice on the nails. You can see that it is not the best of quality but it is a lot better than the finish I expected from such a cheap product. I believe these would be better if you know you plan on changing the colour very quickly.

        **Summary**

        I do like this nail varnish for a quick fix of colour, and it is cheap enough for me not to worry how long it lasts on my nail. I usually use this when I know I want to change the colour a few times in a short period as this means it is not disappointing when I need to remove it after just one or two days. I think usual retail of this polish is around £3 but to be honest I have never brought it full price. I usually purchase it when it is on offer for £1.50. I do feel this is a fair price to pay as even if you do not like it you're not wasting a lot of money. I personally will not be buying this again as it doesn't have the right staying however at that price it is worth a go in case you find it better than I did.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Small bottle, thin enamel, chips quite easily

          ---Why I Bought This---

          Being summer I thought I would try some nail enamel for a change and as Avon have just relaunched their Colour Trend brand in different packaging I thought I would try one of those.



          ---The Brand---
          Avon is a long established direct seling network which used to sell just door-to-door but you can order directly from their website these days if you do not have a local representative handy. You can also buy lots of their products (including discontinued items) from Ebay.


          ---Colour Trend---

          Colour Trend seems to have been going for many years but I cannot find exactly when it started.
          It is Avon's lower priced range of make-up products which is aimed at the younger teenage end of their market.
          It has cheap, basic and cheerful packaging.



          ---The Product---

          8 mls of nail enamel with a 'wet look' shine.
          'Long wearing formulation that dries to a long lasting finish.'
          Comes in bright pink/cerise box.
          Flammable.
          Made in Italy.
          Small dumpy glass bottle of enamel 2 inches tall - 1 inch is bottle and other is the screw cap.
          The cap has now changed to a white colour.



          ---Colour Range---

          WET LOOK
          Natural Girl - beige
          Shell Pink
          Bikini - bright peach
          Green Morph
          Blue Moon
          Velour - red
          Deluxe - chocolate
          Alloy - bronze
          Peekaboo - lilac
          Tropical - orange
          Violet Freeze
          Vixen - wine
          SUEDE FINISH WITH SHIMMER
          Soft Violet
          Blue Royale
          Fushia Feel


          ---Cost---

          £3 full price but currently on offer for 2 for £4.



          ---My Opinion---

          I can remember buying these Colour Trend products way back in the 70s and 80s - but what struck me on first opening the small box is how tiny the bottles have now become.
          Other Avon nail enamels are 12 ml bottles but these are only 8 mls - and it definitely shows. The whole botle is dinky which means the screw off cap and attached brush is also short and stumpy. Quite a surprise for the £3 full price.
          The consistency is very runny and watery, and I had to use two coaots of the Shell Pink shade, whereas with the more expensive Avon enamels and the Sally Hansen ones one coat is sufficient.
          I did not find it particularly fast drying, but in the brochure it is promoted that it 'dries in a flash'.
          Two coats gave adequate coverage and it did have a wet and glosy finish once it dried. However I did not find it 'long wearing' at all and even on my short nails it had started to chip off the ends after a day.
          The colour selection is 12 wet look shades and 3 shimmery shades.
          Avon's more expensive Nailwear Pro on the other hand comes in larger 12 ml bottles, has 19 different colours and although priced at £6 are now on offer for £3.50 which I think is much better value and it gives better coverage.
          These dinky little bottles are only worth buying when on offer and even then I think the colour choice of the Nailwear Pro brand is better.
          However the little bottles might be an advantage of you are travelling.



          ---Star Rating---

          3 stars - expensive at full price and the bottles are quite small..



          ---Would I Recommend?---

          Yes - if on offer - but probably better value to buy the Nailwear Pro range.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Cheap and cheerful

          The Avon Color Trend range has been around for years. I remember buying it with my pocket money as a kid! This nail polish retails at £2.95 but I bought it when it was on offer for £1.50.

          The shade I purchased was called Iced Champink which is a pretty girly pink colour. The bottle is packaged nicely and the brush you apply the nail polish with is good quality. Overall I was initially very impressed and I couldn't wait to use it! The nail polish itself smelt quite strong to begin with so I had to open the windows so I wasn't choking on it. The polish went onto my nails well. The brush is easy to use, although you need a steady hand as the polish is rather runny. It does get easier to work with once you have got used to the consistency.

          I decided to apply two coats of this as the first coat looked a little thin. I wanted a deeper pink colour and I managed to achieve this after two coats.

          The colour is lovely. When dry the nail polish is gorgeous. The colour isn't too overpowering either so I can get away with wearing this for work. I would say that the polish lasts for around three days before it starts to chip. It's not the longest lasting nail polish that I have ever used but it's cheap and it's enough to get you by. There's around six different shades to choose from and they're usually on some sort of offer in the Avon brochure.

          Cheap and cheerful!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          not for long term use

          I bought Avon Colour Trend: Colour Me Pretty Nail Colour because it was on offer and is quite cheap compared to other nail varnishes on the high street. It is part of the Colour Trend brand within Avon, which are quite childish make-ups and more aimed at teens than adult women, the colours are bright and funky and they are cheap and easily afforded on a student budget. I really liked the Iced Champink colour and the Minimalist Peach colour so I ordered them off my mother in law (the Avon Representative) just before Christmas.


          Apply

          This nail varnish was quite watery when applied, I needed to apply 3 coats of it before the colour looked good and even then because it was so watery, it looked clumpy and uneven. I found the Iced Champink one easier to apply than the Minimalist Peach, possibly this is because the Champink is a darker colour and it came up better on my nails.


          Dry

          It didn't take an overly long time for this nail varnish to dry, though it did take a little longer to apply than usual because I had to put on 3 coats, when my nails had all dried, even though it was a nightmare to apply, they looked really well. The quality of this nail varnish however isn't as good as others I have tried, for example the Avon Nail Enamel is a better buy than this one.


          Stay Power

          This nail varnish didn't really have the staying power that I would have liked, it started to chip after a day wear and tear at the tips of my nails, this didn't look great and made my nails look really shabby. I would only really wear this nail varnish on a night out to match my outfit and then take it off the next day, as although the colours are nice, it doesn't last.



          Range of Colours

          There are mostly pinks and purples in this range at the moment, no real viberant colours like Gold or Green or Blue as it stands, here is a list of the colour names that you can choose from.

          Café au Lait

          Dusty Pink

          Flash

          Freezing

          Iced Champink

          Lovely Lilac

          Minimalist Peach


          Price and Availability

          You can only buy this product either online at Avon.co.uk or by ordering it from your Avon Representative, it costs £2.95 for a small tub, which isn't a bad price for a nail varnish, especially if you just want to wear it for a short time to a special occasion and don't mind that it might chip after a while of wearing it.


          Overall

          Overall this is an OK nail varnish, it is cheap, but you get what you pay for. I don't think that I would buy it again, however I still do use the ones I own when I need them to match an outfit, especially the Iced Champink one as it is a really cool colour. I think this nail varnish is better suited to girls in their teens, but I do prefer the Avon Nail Enamel range, which isn't much more expensive and is worth the extra few pennies.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            .

            When flicking through the Avon catalog I always stay on the 'colour trend' pages for a good few minutes and I always go back to it, 'colour trend' in my opinion is for the younger generations or it certainly seems like that, just because the items seem slightly childish, such as the chocolate flavour lip balms and the bright girly girl colour nail varnish's, not only this but because the models on the pages are a lot younger too. Despite this, they do some great products, ones that caught my eye this time was the nail varnish's.

            The 'colour trends colour me pretty nail enamel' comes in 8 shades, lovely lilac, freezing, dusty pink, cherry choc, flash, minimilisic peach, cafe ay lait ad ice champink. When I bought these they was only £1.50 each so I decided to get the freezing and flash, the 'freezing' shade is a dark brown with what looks like an undertone of red, sort of a deep cherry colour, this I thought was a very subtle colour and great for an everyday wear, I like to paint my nails because at work being a bar maid your hands is the first thing people see so I like to look my best all over. The Flash is a nice red colour, not to bright but certainly not dull, this I like to wear If I go on a night out because it stands out.

            When these arrived the box looked quite tall, but this was mainly the lid of the varnish and the pot was surprisingly small, maybe about an inch or just over in length. This didn't bother me to much because they was so cheap so worth the money in size I think. The brush is a little smaller than usual application brush's, this was more ideal for me because I don't grow my nails, this makes it easier to get across the full nail and in the corners too, the varnish is quite running so I found that the colour wasn't very strong at first and I had to apply at least 3 coats before an unstreaky colour formed, all together I applied 4 coats which to me seemed a lot. I don't always have the time to do all that and wait for it to dry too, each layer took around a minute to dry with a little bit of a shake, over all to do my hands it took around 10 minutes, which isn't the worst.

            This wasn't very chip resistant, it started to wear just after a day and cdip, but when it came off it peeled away in large peices, so I had to top them up often but the colour never quite mathed the original shade, I've stuck to just using these for nights out, because the morning after I like to have a big damper so I wipe everything off anyway, so It's ideal for this.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Pretty enjoyable if you are a kid

              Color Trend

              The Avon colour trend range is are designed for younger teenage Avon connoisseur being cheaper in price the nail varnish in particular is less than half the cost of Avon pro enamel at £2.95 (compared to £6). Though it can regularly be found at have price or less, the price range is £0.99-£1.50 which is pretty good if you teenager or adolescent goes through nail polish like I used to at that age.


              Pros

              The Color trend nail polish is a good deal cheaper than other brands of nail polish even those contained within the same brochure or internet page provided by Avon. The colours highly correspond with the other makeup products from the color trend range including the lipsticks and the eye shadows. The colours are a lot more pastel and vital looking than the more serious seductive colours from the pro enamel range so are perfect for younger girls. After two coats the colour matches the brochures description. The nail polish also comes off pretty easily with nail polish remover also.


              Cons

              This nail polish takes longer to dry than the pro-enamel ranges from Avon and the bottles are a lot smaller than the other ranges also which means you are getting less for your money should the pro-enamel be reduced to half price. As many people have probably commented in previous reviews this nail polish chips a lot more easily than the grown up equivalent, especially when doing the dishes or general house work or so I have found. However if you are between the age of 8-14 this probably isn't much of a concern and I believe that this is color trends main market. Though I did have a problem with the smell I thought it was a little stronger than other nail polishes from Avon. Admittedly they did try to solve this problem with the Ice shears collection from this range which included perfume scents from fruits like pear and citrus fruits though I think it may have made the problem worse.


              Packaging

              The nail polish comes in little transparent glass bottles holding 8mls with a little black lid with the standard brush attached internally. On the front there is a little image of a finger nail some little dots with the Color Trend brand and a little slogan which says "Colour me pretty".


              Currently Available in the following shades:

              Lovely Lilac
              Dusty Pink
              Minimalist Peach
              Iced Champink
              Freezing
              Café au Lait
              Peekaboo
              Party Girl
              Surf
              Cherry Choc
              Flash


              Personally being 22 I would likely rate it 2.5 out of 5 because I can afford to buy the higher quality more expensive ranges as I do a lot of housework and filing and such so I would require a very strong brand. Though if I was 10 again I would be thrilled with the selection available and let's be honest the small bottles are a pretty good idea in the sense that kids get bored with things easily and this way less will be wasted to go to gloop or to harden.

              Little extra-What I do with my gloopy stuff

              I collect bottle tops and add the old gloopy nail polish to make patterns within the bottle caps, add buttons or interesting beads to it and make little unique badges from them, but that is just me because I hate seeing things go to waste and am a believer in a greener environment.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Not an everyday polish but ok to have in a make up case.

              My mum had a love of the Avon catalogue a while ago and I ended up with a huge variety of make up and nail polish from the sale. Normally £2.95 each these can be picked up for as little as £1-£1.50 a bottle when on offer. I have also seen them at 3 for £5 so a great offer. Due to changing my nail colour so often a huge range of colours is a great thing to have, this particular brand has 6 colours and at this price it is definately affordable.

              At first I wasn't expecting great things from this being so cheap but after trying the make up and it being almost perfect I was more than happy to try out these nail polishes. I tend to change m nail colour every couple of days so staying power is not something I am looking for. Mainly I am looking for a polish that has a bold colour or shimmery dependent on my mood.

              The bottles are smaller than other brands but for the price it is not a problem. They come in a plain black box with a couple of white highlights so pretty plain as packaging goes. The same rule applies to the bottle, plain, clear glass shows the colour inside and a couple of black highlights make it simple but effective.

              The liquid itself found to be a little watery in comparison to other brands I have tried, it also took around 3 coats to cover the nail properly as the colour was very subtle on 3 of the shades I tried. It was pearlescent but as colour goes it couldn't really be seen. I have to say I was a little disappointed as the colour looks pretty strong but when applied it is not at all.

              Despite not needing staying power I found the varnish chipped after just a day, it was not at all strong enough for my general day to day living. I suppose if you were driving to work, sitting at a desk and driving home again wit not much more in between it would last longer but for the general woman and mother with household duties, children and a multitude of tasks to complete it is definately not suitable.

              They are ok to have in a make up case but I wouldn't use them as an everyday polish.

              Disadvantages

              Sorry Avon but I was not pleased with this polish!

              When flicking through the Avon brochure, I always enjoy looking at their Color Trend products, and as I am a student, they are most suitable for me as they are reasonably priced and often have good offers on them! I always umm and ahh whether to purchase their Color Me Pretty Nail Polish, but when a good offer was on in my last order, I decided to pick one up.

              One thing I must say is that they do not have a great selection of shades. Despite having eight to choose from, they are all quite neutral with lots of browns, pinks and peaches which I try to avoid particularly in the summer time as I want bright nails. However, they have one which is a sparkly blue green shade which I thought would be perfect for summer, and it is in the shade Surf. I picked this up most likely because it just stood out to me, and I thought I would give it a go.

              When it got delivered I was quite surprised because it is quite small, however this does make it very cute! It is displayed as shown in the image above, and you get a decent amount in it. The colour was actually true to that in the catalogue which is often a miracle to happen with Avon, but all in all it looked quite impressive.

              When applying it, it was very easy to put directly on to both finger nails and toe nails and the applicator was handing for getting into little gaps easily. However, the liquid is quite runny within it, and this can mean that the nail polish sometimes runs over to your skin and can end up looking quite uneven when finished. Another thing to note is that it is an extremely subtle nail polish, and as I was hoping for big colour from this, I did not receive it. I ended up applying about five coats and as it takes an awfully long time to dry, I was there for about thirty minutes trying to get my toe nails looking pretty. I ended up getting very impatient, but was all the hassle worth it for the finished look?

              When finished, I must admit the colour did look nice, and the sparkle made a pretty effect to it which would look perfect for my summer holiday when I am wearing flip flops and sandals regularly. However, the colour is very subtle and this does mean that I will be looking for better nail polishes than this as the application process was just too much hassle for me.

              As well as this, I did find that it chipped a little too quickly for my liking, and I was constantly having to touch it up throughout the week, so for staying power this is not the nail polish for that either!

              The reason that the quality of this could have been a little poor is due to the fact that it retails for only £2.95. I have tried out better nail polishes for this price, but if you are interested in picking one of these up and trying it out for yourself, you can order it through your Avon representative out of the catalogue, or online on their website.

              Overall, I would say it's not worth the hassle because the results are not that fantastic for the amount of effort you have to put in to make your toes look perfect. Was quite disappointed with this one, sorry Avon! Thanks for reading.

                Disadvantages

                good for the price

                Avon Colour Trend Nail Colours are very sweet little nail varnishes that have the most amazing colour. I often get Avon nail varnish it's nice from time to time to treat yourself to a gorgeous new nail colour. So I decided to flick through the book as you do and look for more shades and I got this one the color me pretty. Strange name to call it but it was whether it was any good that mattered.

                I really like this colour called color me pretty nail colour. It's a dark pink with a gorgeous shine to it its nice to have a bold but pretty colour on the nail once in a while it gives your hands life and makes them stand out. It has a raspberry type of colour to it and I love it! The bottle was £2.75 but now there is a special offer on with Avon and you can get it for £1.37! That's a bargin all right! especially for this color me pretty varnish. This colour is perfect for night out it has shine rather than a tacky sparkle I hate sparkle varnishes they so look cheap sometimes. I tend to wear the different shades because there is a shade to match any occasion. Flash shade for romantic evening and the Freezing shade for the day time look on the nails. After I apply it I usually keep it on for 4 days and I test if it's chip resistant when I first get it. This one I was surprised with because its appearance is very diseveing, as it looks small, they do say good things come in small packages! On the fourth day there was not a chip in sight and I was made up because my nails still looked rather fresh!

                You can pick this nail varnish up from Avon and other sites such as Amazon. With Avon's price now for it being so low that's probably your best bet. The less you pay the more you save. On beauty products and make up I like to save money by looking for a sale or an offer.
                If you like this shade you will love the shade Iced Champink that is pretty close but lighter in colour. I enjoy buying new nail varnish and I wont hesitate buying more of this because of its quality and colour. Also it has great staying power unlike some very expensive varnishes. The other day I got a nail varnish for 5 pounds buy the second day it was chipping everywhere I was so embarrassed.It just goes to show cheap and cheerful varnishes are not bad at all!

                5 stars for staying power and the amazing colour.
                5 stars for the price and saving me money.
                4 stars for package I think it could be slightly bigger but overall the best parts are 5 stars!
                Great varnish that goes on well and smooth not sticky and perfect for a special occasion!

                  Disadvantages

                  good for a budget, not bright colours

                  aon colourtrend nail varnish is another type of nailvarnish that has made it intot my mak up collection
                  In the avon catalougue, they are available really cheaply, i brought a couple in a 3 for £5 offer that avon so frequently do.

                  The packaging of this nailvarnnish is very plain, its a round glass botlle that holds the colour and a twist off lid that is also the brush. it has Avon written on it and a small picture that represents the colour that it is. ( in this case the picture is a rasberry, as this is what kind of colour it is)

                  The colour that these nail varnishes produce is very subtle, and not bright at all. but if you apply it twice, and then go over it once more when it is dry, the colour builds up to a better colour

                  The brush is quite small, so you have to use 2 or 3 strokes to cover the whole nail with the colour, which is time consuming and can be avoided by not buying such cheap brands

                  the colours that they offer are mainly pink tones, with the occasional other colour, but they are good for a subtle look- great to wear at work

                  I would recommend this to anyone who is buying on a budget, but if not then you should buy a more expensive brand!
