== The Product==
I received this as a gift but have since found out that it retails at £5.00 from Avon plus you can get it from Amazon too and other online retailers. This is for a 12ml bottle.
Apparently the gen on this is that it actually contains gold flakes - yes 24karat gold flakes ! Wow and just for a fiver - got to be worth it for that alone!
So having previously worn acrylic nails, my nails were in a bit of state having had them on for a while. The condition of my nails were akin to a used out cardboard emery board; weak, poor condition, dull and but slightly rough over the edges! I needed to do something with them to bring them back up to strength. This is where this came in.
I probably would not have bought this myself however as it came as a present and my nails were in such a shocking state I would thought I would give it a try.
I was surprised when I took off the lid as the consistency was just like a nail polish - a clear nail polish with pretty small (for that read very tiny/ miniscule) gold particles in it. It also smelt just like nail polish. I was expecting it to be a watery substance that would soak into the nail bed. However, it just like a nail varnish.
So I painted it on and it dried within a couple of minutes; basically giving all my nails a clear look (the gold flecks are not discernible on my nails). The varnish has worn well when I have used it too. No chipping on it and it certainly makes my nails look a whole lot more conditioned. Just by applying one coat.
==After Effects and Conclusion==
I have to say I am impressed with this product. Having used it for a few weeks now my nails really are stronger, the polish is strong, stays on well, it does not feel cheap when applying it or too thick that it takes ages to dry and then chips off really easily. In addition to this, I have found that it really has conditioned my nails, makes my nails look shiny and neat (not dry and cracked). The gold in it really just gives the nails a very, very slightly golden clear hue.
Prior to using this my nails were peeling and cracking really badly after the acrylics came off but just a few uses of this and this has stopped that in it's tracks!
For such a great price I think this product would be very hard to beat on price and quality. I am highly impressed with this item. I will now use it regularly especially under other coloured polishes almost as a base coat as I feel it would allow me the knowledge of knowing my nails will be protected by discolouration from highly pigmented polishes and conditioning my nails at the same time.
Moreover, I find that quite a few other varnishes seem to dry out my cuticles really badly, this however has no diverse effect like that. What ever is in this product really works for me.
A super duper gold standard product - worthy of its name.
*****5 stars on price and quality.
Summary: Tip Top Item that is now one of my favourite nail products.
