NOTD: Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Pastel Pink


So I gave you the low-down on Avon’s upcoming polish launch, Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel, over on beaut.ie,  but today I want to give you a sneak peek at the colour I picked to try out at the launch event. This is Pastel Pink, and I chose it because I’ve had uniformly bad experiences with this type of white based pastel shade; they tend to look chalky and be streaky to apply.

Not this baby, I’m happy to report – it took three coats, which in my experience is pretty much par for the course, but gave a lovely, streak free finish.



I find this type of pastel pink to be flattering on most skin tones – it looks as good with a tan as it does on paler types, and is a lovely soft choice for spring.
These will be €8, and launch in May. Click here to check out the full colour range.
Avon don’t sell through shops but check out the website to browse an ebrochure or to find your nearest independent sales rep.

Sweet spring color - similar to the Essie pastels!

Cabootique said...

I love that shade. I have a similar one that always frustrates me because it is so streaky and hard to apply. Maybe I need to upgrade :)

Is it just me or those nail colors are just intimately breath-taking? Oh my God those are to-die-for!
