Me and my 6 year old daughter love nothing better than having a girly evening and doing our nails together. The only problem is that she is really impatient and ends up ruining the nails by not waiting long enough for it to dry and then gets upset when it all goes wrong.
My friend recommended this product to me and said that she used it all the time and that it was great. I thought I would get a bottle and try it for myself. I bought It from my avon rep at work. I thought that it was very expensive at almost £7 a go but went ahead anyway. I think next time i need some I will wait until Avon have it on offer as they usually are much cheaper if you wait for the offers.
To say that it was so expensive it didn't look like anything too exciting. The product comes in a bottle with a white pump on the top. The bottle itself is easy to use and the fact that it is a pump means you dont risk spilling any if you are clumsy like me.
We used it together after we had put the first coat on her toes I thought it was the perfect time to try it out. Its really easy to use you simply spray the product onto your newly painted nails and wait.
I only used it on her so it was easy to spray on but im not sure how easy it would be to do on your own hands it may be a bit tricky. The spray is not sticky as I expected it to be and it has a nice smell about it.
I was really surprised at how quick this did make her nails dry they were literally dry within seconds and she could go running around the house doing what she normally does and it didn't affect her nails at all.
If you are a bit impatient or just don't like sitting around or risking ruining your nail varnish then this really is for you. We normally do our nails once a week and this has lasted us ages so although it is expensive it lasts well.
I paint my nails quite a lot at least once a week but I always tend to do it in bed, then i fall asleep thinking there dry but wake up with bed sheet pattern on my nails! I purchased the quick dry spray for this very reason.
The first thing i noticed with the quick drying spray is the amount it sprays maybe im using it too use but i find my fingers are covered in the mist, then i don't want to wash or wipe my hands encase i smudge my nails. I would recommend using it over a towel as i have sprayed it over laminate floor and spent 5 mins clearing it up.
After i have cleaned up my hands, to be fair my nails are dry so it does work! Maybe i just need to perfect using it.
It worked so well my sister in law has pinched mine and i've ordered a new one.
Personally for me i would rather buy the speed dry nail varnish instead of this.The speed dry nails are available in nearly all the same colours as normal nail varnish with Avon so i think it saves time in having to buy the quick dry spray.
Over all a good product if you dont mind the mess!
~*~*~ Avon Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray ~*~*~
~ What is it? ~
This is a quick drying top coat from Avon.
~ Packaging ~
It comes in a small clear bottle with a spray top lid. You are able to clearly see the clear liquid inside the bottle, which is great for knowing how much is left and if you are running low you will be aware of it immediately rather than running out completely.
~ Price & Availability ~
With this being an Avon product it is available online at www.avonshop.co.uk or through a local Avon rep (if you have one).
The price is £6 for a 50ml bottle however as with a lot of Avon products it can often be bought whilst on offer for around the half price mark, which I think is more reasonable.
~ Why did I buy it? ~
I bought this with the hope that it would speed up the drying time when applying nail varnish. I tend to change my nail colour, ohh about seven times a week! So anything that could possibly speed it along was much appreciated. If I recall correctly I bought this around about Christmas time when Avon do little box specials for around a fiver, yep I remember now, my box (black with lips printed on the top) contained two nail polishes and this spray. I hadn't tried it before so I was interested to see how it worked and buying it this way seemed a real good deal.
~ Using it ~
To use this you simply have to spray your nails after you have painted them, in theory it is meant to act as a top coat and help your nails dry a lot quicker.
~ My thoughts on using it ~
I am not impressed with this.
When I first used it I painted my nails in a quick dry polish and gave them a quick spray with this, the liquid gently mists the nails but I noticed that it also left a horrible greasiness behind. The top half's of my fingers were just covered with a greasy yuckiness which of course I needed to wash off, and in doing so, I ruined my nails! It hadn't 'speed' dried them at all so I wasn't happy with the product what so ever.
Of course being the kinda gal that I am, I had to give it a second chance to see if it could change my mind in anyway, again I got the same results and I haven't bothered using it since. It is sat in the basket (in the drawer) along with all my other nail products and I suspect that I will possibly try it out again however for the time being I am happy to blow my nails dry and faff them around as if I am swatting flies!
~ Overall ~
I can see by other peoples reviews that this is a liked product however for me it was just useless. If I wanted greasy fingers I'd stick them in the chip pan.
Not something I will buy again.
Thanks for reading :o) x
I don't paint my nails very often as I work as a carer we are not allowed them painted however if I have a few days off then I love having pretty looking nails and will give them a paint however I seem to have nails that just don't like to dry and so I bought this to see if I could speed up the process.
The product comes from Avon either direct from their website or from one of their representatives, the product currently costs £6 for 50mls and often comes on offer such as the one it is currently on which is 2 for £8.
The product comes packaged in a clear bottle with a white pump action lid on top the name of the company and product is on the bottle so it is pretty simple and quite boring however as it is packaged away in my nails box I wouldn't want to pay more just for a design on the bottle.
Using the product is very easy simply paint your nails as you usually would and then pointing the nozzle at your nails and spray the product over the top, the product some how causes your nails to dry much more quickly. In the brochures Avon promises that this product will dry your nails in a flash however I would say this is a slight exaggeration however it certainly does speed up the drying of my nails.
The product has a sort of cleaning product type smell but it isn't very strong and once you have finished your nails it disappears very quickly, you don't need much of the product to do the job so the bottle lasts for ages and even longer for me as I generally only paint my nails once or twice a month. I find that there was a slight layer of residue is left on my hands however this is easily removed with a baby wipe so is not an issue. I would give this 4 stars as it makes the whole process much quicker and actually means I paint my nails more than I use to as it used to be a job that took a good hour or so but now I can do it in half the time.
Whilst I adore the appearance of beautifully manicured and polished nails I am rather impatient these days whilst waiting for the enamel to dry. When looking through an Avon brochure towards the end of last year, my eyes were drawn to their Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray and as the 50 ml transparent bottle was on promotion, I decided to try it out.
I must admit that when my Avon representative handed me my purchase, I wasn't overly impressed, particularly as the bottle contents resembled that of water and I couldn't for one minute imagine that the product would be any good. It was only a couple of weeks ago that I decided to use it, as until then it had been placed in a drawer, as I believed I had wasted my hard earned cash on an impulse buy.
A huge frustration I have with Avon is that the brand insists on using sticky labels on many of their products, which need to be peeled back gently to reveal several pages that display the directions for use together with the ingredients. As I suspected, I easily opened up pages four and five, which were presented in another language, but attempting to reveal the English on page two was another matter. After five minutes of painstakingly picking at the edge of the label, I was finally able to reveal the page where I discovered three short lines of English text. It is here that I learned that a light coat should be sprayed on the nail enamel, which would subsequently enable a thirty second drying time.
Consequently, I painted my nails as normal using several coats of my nail enamel and easily removed the lid from the bottle, which firmly clicks back into place thus ensuring the safety of the flammable contents. The pump action spray initially needs to be pressed a good few times to order to draw the clear liquid into the dispensing unit. Despite the spray being released in a fine mist it was impossible to direct it solely on my finger nails and as a result, I ended up with rather wet fingers with a lingering oily residue. Due to the name of the product, I had anticipated it to be icy cold when it made contact with my skin, but fortunately, this was not the case. The aroma that greeted me was initially quite pungent, but I was pleased that it rapidly transformed into a rather favourable scent.
Unfortunately, Avon fail to mention how far away the bottle should be held from the nails when spraying, so it was a case of trial and error where I found that a 10 cm distance was sufficient. Any closer and I found that my nails were dripping with the liquid, which partially ruined my enamel resulting in me having to start all over again. Did it actually work? I was pleasantly surprised with the results, as the spray most definitely achieves the thirty second drying claim and I was amazed at how it actually worked.
In addition, it offers a glossy top coat, which professionally seals the nail enamel and as a result, my nails look beautiful and are no longer a time consuming task. The only slight grumble I have, as mentioned above, is that as the dispenser is a little difficult to accurately aim at just one nail, an oily residue is transferred to the surrounding skin, but this is easily rinsed away. Another point I would make is that if you have any broken skin on your fingers it will burn like mad when the spray makes contact!
This product far exceeded my expectations and I was initially of the opinion that it would be one of those that I would try out once and then toss to the back of a drawer. Whilst I was previously extremely careful when painting my nails, I would nearly always experience a few slight scratches on the surface due to my impatience when waiting for them to dry. However, this liquid freeze prevents any scratches, so the appearance of my newly painted nails is always one hundred per cent perfect.
Whilst I applied the spray at least a dozen times, the liquid has hardly reduced, so I anticipate it will last me a considerably long time although I would point out this it should be used within 24 months of opening. I was fortunate with my purchase, as I believe I paid the discounted price of around £3 for my bottle with it currently retailing at its full price of £6. However, in my experience, it is worth every penny and I can make a high recommendation, as it is such a time saver.
Due to the reasons discussed above, Avon Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray receives four stars from me, as I felt it necessary to remove one due to the initial scent, the difficulty in precise application and the oily residue.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
I love nail varnish, but I just get so frustrated waiting for it to dry - so a year or so ago I was flicking through an Avon Catalogue. Saw this product and decided that this might be a way to mean I can paint my nails, and go - which when you only get a few minutes to do your nails before you go out, it's always a bonus. Initially I didn't want to buy it, because it was quite expensive back then, so I waited for a lovely Avon sale before I bought it. I lost it recently, and when I had a massive clear out I found it again and have used it a lot recently!
~*~ Avon ~*~
Well without going into a deep history, Avon are a company that began in 1889, with a gentleman trying to sell his books with the enticement of perfume - but the perfume was more popular so he changed his tack slightly! So in the end he ended up forming a company by another name that has ended up with the book and products we know now... Nowadays, there are many ways you can get hold of Avon products, from the old fashioned Avon lady or person (lol) which is normally, friend, neighbour or colleague... You can now also order online and get it delivered to your door. Or there is also the old fail-safe of eBay if you can't get any of the old items, they are more than likely on there! Either way you get it, you are bound to enjoy your purchase. However with the Avon representative or online option, you can always try it and send it back in you don't like the product for any reason!
~*~ Freeze My Fingers ~*~
I bought this because I wanted a quick and easy way to dry my nails, I used to use a UV nail dryer but I just got fed up with waiting even for that to dry - so decided I needed a drastic change and I went for this item in an Avon Catalogue, initially though when I saw it, it was quite expensive so didn't really want to risk it if it wasn't going to work. So I wanted until the bottle came down to a more reasonable price - and bought one, waited a few weeks for it to arrive since at the time my Avon Lady was a little bit slow in bringing round the items even if she'd had them sat in her house for a little while. It comes in a clear bottle, with 50ml in that has a white spray top and a white label with silver writing on. The bottle initially comes with a clear top on the spray but somehow along the way I have actually lost mine, it's not that it's a lose lid, it's just that I'm daft and put it down somewhere, and didn't put it back on so it'll have been cleared up with the rubbish and recycled no doubt. The bottle is said to have a life of two years, which if you paint your nails regularly you will get through before the two years are up - but it will last you a while don't worry I've had my current bottle a couple of months and it's not even half empty yet so it's well worth the money.
The liquid inside is clear, you don't need to do anything more than aim at your finger nails and press down the pump spray and onto your fingernails. The bottle doesn't actually tell you how far you need to do it away from your nail, so I've always just done it about 5 cm away to ensure the whole nail gets a good covering. It might be too close but I can't say I've had any problems yet, I do it a few fingers at a time sometimes at which point I'll spray all my fingers a couple of times over to make sure they are well covered. Obviously, leaving the liquid to dry between sprays. I would say though that you shouldn't spray it between each coat of nail varnish, because it is quite greasy on your nails and fingers so in my experience the colour doesn't stick very well to your nail at all which is quite frustrating actually. I only ever use this when I've finished all my coats of nail varnish and I'm sure I've finished it all, because it does leave your fingers and nail really quite greasy - it's not a pleasant feeling really if all of your fingers are a bit slippery, but because your nails are dry pretty much straight away, you can wipe the excess liquid off your fingers with a towel and you'll not smudge or ruin your nail varnish. It does dry your nails almost instantly acutally, I didn't think it would if I'm honest I thought it would still take a a minute, but it is quite cold on your fingers after you've used it - not uncomfortable but definitely enough to freeze the nail varnish to your fingers. Thankfully though it doesn't make any difference when it comes to removing the nail varnish, it will still take the normal time to remove obviously depending on thickness and the type of nail varnish you're wearing. The spray does have a bit of a scent but it's not offensive and your fingers soon stop smelling like it - even if you've used a lot all it takes is a quick run under the tap and you're done.
~*~ Price and Availability~*~
You can order this from Avon for £6 a bottle or when on offer it's normally £3 - so it's worth the money with or without an offer, but if you get it on offer, you'll get it for even better value!
I had my doubts about this product and for £6 I was not going to spend that on a pump spray that would help my nails dry quicker, after all wave your hands in the air a bit and it dries fairly quickly anyway, I was dubious to say the least. However, I happened across a bottle of this on eBay for £2 + p&p and couldn't say no!
The packaging is nothing to get excited about at all, it is a clear bottle with a clear label and a white pump action top! I do a lot with my nails, from nail art to designs, patterns etc. Waiting for the base coats to dry can be a little awkward and annoying as you just want to get on with the patterns and actually designing something.
I painted one hand with nail varnish and waited for it to dry naturally; I then gave it another coat of nail varnish and gave my nails a spray with this product. I was shocked to say the least! it did actually work amazingly well. It doesn't really have a smell, it does but it is not overpowering and it doesn't stick around very long either, quite difficult to describe in fact. Once the nails are dry you can go about your daily duties without worry of ruining your nails. It doesn't affect the look of your nail varnish, it doesn't make them tacky or lumpy, it just dries them very quickly.
I am astounded that this actually works as I really didn't think it would. I still give my nails a few minutes to make sure they are perfectly dry before diving my nails into drawers or clothes piles etc. I can't recommend this product enough; I would even pay the £6 price tag for it.
I am not sure if having some other spray option would be better than the pump action that's on this. Although one push of the lid does cover all five fingers of one hand, there is a lot of wastage and with my left hand it can be a bit of a pain trying to press it with your awkward hand, I hope that makes sense lol. The liquid although clear does have an oily, greasy feel to it which I don't really like. It must be something to do with this that makes the nail varnish dry so quickly. It doesn't take long to either wipe your hands afterwards with a baby wipe which removes the greasy residue or wash them, after all your nail varnish is dry by then. Either way for just short of £3 this was a total bargain and I am in love with this product, it is a godsend and I don't know how I ever lived without it!!!
Most nail polishes dry pretty quickly on their own but I do have a few that seem to take ages to dry before I am able to leave the house.
I bought this quick dry spray from Avon because it sounded like it would be good for me to use with these particular polishes.
As you can see with my star rating I was not overly impressed with this and it goes firmly in my Avon products to avoid in future pile (which is rapidly mounting up).
It comes in a spray bottle and the idea is that you spray the freeze dry liquid on to your nails to make them dry quicker.
I thought the spray would come out like a fine mist but instead it actually comes out as a liquid and instead of it being a dainty spray it actually goes everywhere including all over my hands and it feels horrible and greasy. It also smells really strong and not pleasant at all.
I was also hoping this was going to give my nails a glossy hard coating to protect them and the colour but it really doesn't and once it has dried it is pretty much invisible.
As for its drying abilities I am also a little dubious.
I find that this seems to take longer to get completely dry than the actual polish and it sits on top of the polish and after a minute or so it looks dry but if I touch my nails they still feel tacky and are easy to smudge.
To be completely honest I genuinely think this is a waste of money. I was expecting something which would instantly dry my nails and not something which itself took a couple of minutes to dry. By the time I have sprayed this on and waited for it to dry my nails would have been touch dry anyway so I think I shall just stick to waiving my hands about in the air to get them to dry in future.
I enjoy painting both my toe and finger nails and up until I started receiving the Avon catalogue, I had never heard of a quick dry spray. When flicking through the book a few months ago I spotted this Avon nail experts liquid freeze quick dry spray on sale so thought I'd give it a try.
The quick dry spray is available to purchase from your local Avon representative or online through the web shop. The RRP for the 50ml bottle is £6 but I got mine on sale for only £2.50. Avon often have offers on most of their products so if you are looking to purchase I would definitely wait around to see if the price drops again.
The quick dry spray comes inside a transparent plastic bottle so you can see how much of the clear liquid is left inside. After removing the lid from the top you are met with a spray button. The idea behind the product is that after you have finished painting your nails, you spray this over the top and it helps dry them quicker. This is perfect if you haven't got enough time to sit still and wait for nail varnish to try.
The spray covers a huge area, I usually put my hand into a claw shape and press the button once, and this is more than enough spray to cover all of my finger nails on one hand. In fact, it's a little too much as the spray does end up landing on everything, not just your nails and it leaves a horrible greasy feeling behind. That being said, when it is sprayed on my nails it does exactly what it's meant to and does dry nail varnish a lot quicker than what it would just letting it dry naturally. Once sprayed it is almost instant drying, it doesn't set it stone dry but does dry it enough so that you don't have to worry about smudging nail varnish while it's drying.
Once you've used the liquid freeze spray it doesn't particularly leave nail varnish stronger in any way as mine still chips quite easily. However this isn't really a feature of the product anyway, it does what it is meant to do and dries nail varnish quicker. The fact that the spray is greasy and gets everywhere is a bit of a pain but a pain I'm willing to put up with as the positive features of the product definitely outweigh this. I'd definitely recommend it, especially when it's on sale!
There is nothing worse than waiting for your nails to dry; it seems to take a lifetime. When I was flicking through the Avon catalogue and saw the nail experts liquid freeze quick dry spray I thought I would try it out. Usually it would cost £6 but when I got it it was half price at £3. I think £6 is quite expensive and wouldn't have paid that for it but I didn't mind paying the £3. When it came it was in a clear plastic bottle nothing special but it did the job.
The next time I painted my nails I couldn't wait to use it. Like a lot of people I like to put a couple of layers on so I went ahead and put the first layer on and sprayed the quick dry spray onto my nails. It was quite messy and I got a lot of it on my hand because it sprays out so hard. Although my had was all greasy from the spray my nails felt instantly dry so I went ahead and put a second layer on feeling pleased that they were already dry. I sprayed them again and again covered my hands but they were instantly dry again too.
I left my nails for a couple of minutes and then went to wash the greasy spray off of my hands. I put them under the tap and washed them but as I did all of my nail varnish started to peel off and smudge. I took my hands out and inspected my now ruined nails. What it had done was, instead of drying my nails, it had put a dry coating over the top of wet nails. So although they felt dry on top underneath they were still wet. This would have been fine if I hadn't have had to wash my hands but because it sprayed out so hard and sprayed out all over my fingers I had to wash them. Needless to say now I am just patient and wait for them to dry themselves.
"Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray" is a product from Avon. You get 50ml in the bottle and each bottle costs £6 at full price but as Avon regularly do offers, there is a chance you could pick this up for as little as £3. The product itself comes in a clear, spray bottle and the liquid inside it is clear like water. The idea is that you spray the product over your finished nail varnish and it will speed up the drying process.
I have read the other mixed reviews on DooYoo for this product and they are mostly what prompted me to write this myself. I find the Quick Dry spray to be a very useful product and I always use it on my nails after I have painted them. One thing I do not like about the spray is just that....it is a spray. The liquid which looks like water is actually quite greasy so if you spray this onto your nails, it often goes elsewhere too which is not ideal on delicate fabrics or clothes or upholstery. I spray it over a sink so I can easily wash away the greasy residue. The spray is greasy so it does mean that you have to be careful about what you touch after you have sprayed your hands. The negatives aside, I do feel that the product does work. No your nail polish won't be dry to the core in seconds but with this at least you have some protection if you brush your nails against something, the oil works as a barrier and prevents smudging and chipping until the polish is fully dried. One of the things I have done to combat the problem of the spray is to decant the spray into a small bottle which has a dropper/pipette thing on. That way I can focus just on dropping the liquid onto my nails rather than getting it all over my hands and fabrics. That seems to work better, the liquid is still greasy but slightly more controlled in where it is.
For the price of this product and the performance, I personally would recommend it. A similar product such as Jessica Quick Dry sells for £12 for 15ml so you are getting good value with the Avon version and it works in exactly the same way. The Jessica Quick Dry has the dropper on it so perhaps you could purchase that first and then when it is empty top up with Avon Quick Dry? Just a suggestion but one that has saved me from lots of mess. Perhaps Avon will read this and change the design of the bottle?! Here's hoping! I have bought this several times before and would definitely buy it again.
I do usually buy quick drying nail varnishes as I find them much better for my time, but recently I bought a few new (and expensive!) varnishes and found they took forever to dry, which as I applied before a night out, was not great! So upon receiving an Avon book and spotting this product, I thought I was onto a winner!
One of the main reasons I picked this product was quite simply for the offer, which, if you are an Avon shopper, you will know a lot of offers appear throughout the books. This particular offer was across the nail care pages, and was a Buy One Get Two Free offer...these are the ones you cannot refuse! On this occasion I actually saved about £10! But this product appealed to me anyway, a Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray that sets your nail varnish in seconds!
Upon arrival, the bottle was loose and not boxed, and is far from fancy. Its a plain, clear bottle, containing a liquid that appears to be water inside, and a white pump action sprayer. The name of the product is in small black writing, and there is a large white information sticker on the back. As with a lot of Avon products, these have descriptions in many languages, and need to be peeled back from the corner to reveal the instructions in English. This simply states to spray surface dry nail enamel and that the nails will be dry in 30 seconds.
Now as I said, the liquid appears to be water, but it really is not. I used the product this past weekend while getting ready for a family party. I was in a rush, not only trying to get myself ready, but my 3 young daughters who wanted to 'look pretty' too, so I was in a rush and thought this product would be ideal. I had got my hair and make up done first and quickly painted my nails. A quick spurt of this over the top and I was.....so not ready! It became apparent quickly that this was nothing like water, but instead some greasy, oily kind of liquid that clung to my nails and skin horribly. I then had to sit and wait another minute or so for my nails to dry and so I could wash my hands and get the greasiness off them, which by that time my nails would have probably dried on their own.
All in all I found this a total waste of time, it was a horrible product to use and ended with me having to faff about even more than I need to. At £6 a bottle it was a waste of money, the only plus side that was by buying this I got 2 other products for free.
I often paint my nails, especially if I'm going out. I have a large collection of nail products, and this particular product is a rather recent addition to my collection. Painting your nails can be quite time consuming, which is why I originally purchased this product; to speed up the process. This AVON liquid freeze quick dry nail spray goes over your painted nails, to help them dry quicker.
This nail spray can be bought for about £6.00 on the AVON website (www.avonshop.co.uk), or from your local AVON representative. It can often be found on special offer, or at a sale price, resulting in you saving quite a bit of money.
The spray is provided in a clear plastic bottle that holds 50ml of the liquid freeze, which has a white plastic pump dispenser on the top. There is a white label on the back, stating directions and safety information, ect.
" To use: allow nail enamel to set, spray on light coat to surface dry nail enamel in only 30 seconds. "
As the directions say, all you need to do is spray the product over your nails, to allow them to touch dry quickly. The pump makes it easy to spray, and for a light coating to be sprayed across multiple nails at a time.
The spray smells nicely fruity, but if sprayed multiple times you start to smell the chemical scent underneath.
The spray does quickly dry your nails, so you can paint on another coat of nail polish, or just allow them to dry. But, the product only makes your nails touch dry, so you still have to be careful because you can still smudge them, if you're not careful.
The spray not only dries your nails, but it also helps to strengthen them, and helps your nail varnish to stay on for a longer period of time. These two added bonuses help keep your nails in good condition, and looking well-kept.
My only niggle about this product is that the spray is quite greasy and can leave the surrounding area slippery and where the excess spray has landed. I advise you to spray this over your nails on a towel/cloth or an area which you can wipe afterwards.
You must use the spray 24 months after opening, and the bottle is recyclable after use.
In conclusion this product is good for drying and strengthening nails, and aside from the greasiness, I really like this product. A useful addition to anyone's nail product collection. Recommended.
Thanks for reading. This review is also posted on Ciao under the username GAL713.
I really enjoy taking care of my nails and painting them all different colours, the only problem is how long they take to dry! Often after painting my nails I find that even an hour later the nail varnish can still be quite soft and prone to smudging. So when I spotted the Avon nail expert liquid freeze quick dry nail spray I thought it would be worth a try.
The quick dry spray costs £6.00 full price and can be purchased from any Avon representative or online on the Avon website www.avonshop.co.uk. I actually paid £3.00 for this product as it was on a half price special offer at the time. From my experience of buying from Avon it is always worth looking out for products being on special offer as you can save quite a lot of money.
The quick dry spray comes in a 50ml bottle which is made from clear plastic and has a pump action spray dispenser which is covered with a clear plastic lid. On the back of the bottle you will find a white label which you can peel back to display the usage instructions in a huge variety of languages. The spray is really easy to dispense and sprays finely and evenly allowing you to spray several of your nails at the same time.
To use the quick dry spray it states to paint nails and allow them to set, then spray on a light coat of the quick dry spray to dry the nail in just 30 seconds. I did follow these instructions for each coat of nail varnish that I applied as I always use a base coat, two coats of the selected colour then a top coat. I find that this is the best way of keeping your nail varnish from chipping and looking its best for a longer time.
The spray is clear and has quite a nice light fruity fragrance which I found pleasant as I think I was expecting a chemically smell as with most nail products.
I did find that the spray did help to dry and harden the nail varnish that I used allowing me to apply the next coat quicker. But the quick dry spray was very greasy, this not only left my hands feeling greasy but also my floor where the excess spray had fell. This left my laminate flooring very slippy indeed and not something that I expected from this spray. Next time I will certainly be using this elsewhere or placing a towel under my hands first.
Overall this is a good product and I feel that it did help to dry my nails much quicker than if left to just air dry. But this product does have its downsides with its greasy feel and expensive price when not on offer so I am not sure that I will re-purchase.
I am an avid user of a lot of avon products, with my mum being an Avon rep herself and always buying new things to try. I used to go to a professional nail salon every 2 weeks to do a full set, but since having my daughter of course this idea is not feasible (timewise) or reasonable (financially!). So I of course still wanting to look a yummy mummy, I decided to do nails myself at home, but of course it means having to sit fanning my hands for 10 mins in the hope it dries and won't smudge, or putting tissue between my toes and gently walking around the house.
When I saw this product first in the Avon catalogue I literally jumped and bought it, as at the time it was a reasonable £2.50 (although I have now seen it on occasions for an outrageous £6!) It comes in a clear small bottle, with a spray similar to the nozzle on the room and linen spray, and it comes out in a VERY large liquid substance (pretty much what it says on the bottle) but the only downside is one spray seems to cover almost my entire hand! curling my newly polished nails into a claw, and doing one spray on each hand is more than enough to get the job done. Hands tend to be moist and slippery after, but I think as it does the job (my nails are perfectly dry within 60 seconds which is fantastic!) this small hindrance is bearable. The spray does have quite a strong smell but it doesn't last very long once hands and nails are dry. I could only comment on the fact my nails chip quite easily (no idea how) so would be nice if the spray helped this last a bit longer by giving it an extra coating so the polish is more resistant, but I think all it literally does is freeze the polish to dry quickly.
My top tip on doing nails:
1. apply basecoat (a clear available in any polish brand)
2. apply colour (e.g. red) do 2 coats of this to help it stay thick and glossy
3. use the quick freeze dry spray to secure these coats and help it dry quickly
4. apply clear top coat - this will make nails have a long lasting shine and prevent the onset of chipped nail polish!
5. use quick freeze dry spray again to top off all coats, and help nails dry almost instantly.
I paint my nails once a week using this method, and it helps to make the colour last week long :)
