This is a quote from the website "There are some speculations on the web regarding the name “glass nail file” and “crystal nail file”. Some of the retailers provide inaccurate information, telling about differences in quality, production process and so on. The fact is tempered Czech glass is a crystal that comes after several stages of heat processing, therefore all so called “differences” are not more than marketing myth.
So don’t hesitate, if you are looking for glass nail file or crystal nail file you're in the right place."

Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel - Real Red

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).

Christmas Friends full wrap water decals from Charlies Nail Art

PRESS SAMPLE
Hands up who is getting excited about Christmas - yay!  There's a distinct chill in the air, I wonder if we'll have a white Christmas in the UK?  Here's my first Christmas mani of the year using Christmas Friends Nail Art Wraps from Charlies Nail Art.  The wraps depict festive reindeer, a jolly snowman and playful penguins.  The wraps are essentially water decals.  I applied the wraps over a white base, it's not imperative to have a base colour, but I like to have them in case part of the wrap doesn't completely cover your nail.  You need to have some patience with the full wrap water decals, you need to allow them to dry and attach to your nail, so take time to apply them.  If you've not tried water decals before, give them a go, simply soak in a little water, remove from the backing paper, apply to your painted nails, trim and seal with top coat - done!

Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamel - Periwinkles

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 Avon 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).

Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Crackling Cobalt & Majestic Mauve

I've got another two new shades from the Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ range to show you and they are flippin' gorgeous - Crackling Cobalt & Majestic Mauve.
OMG - aren't they just the best shades!
 So let me obsess a little about Crackling Cobalt, a navy shimmer which reminds me of the twinkly stars in the midnight sky. Pics below with camera flash.
 
 
 
 Below under artificial lighting with no camera flash
And now onto Majestic Mauve, a sumptuous plum shimmer which dazzles like a purple tourmaline gemstone.  Pics below with camera flash.

The formulation is a good consistency, you could almost get away with one coat if you were in a rush, I'd always recommend two coats for full impact and seal with Avon Mark Gel Shine top coat for durability.  Superbly pigmented and a real treat for the eyes.

I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).
