{Review} Avon Gel Finish Nail Polish

review-avon-gel-finish-nail-polish_01I’ve been obsessed with growing my nail polish collection, usually my go to nail polishes to buy are the Essence Cosmetics nail polishes they are super affordable and they wear pretty well. I was sent two gel finish nail polishes from Avon a few months ago, the shades I was sent – I would categorise them as must have Spring nail polish colours.

I have used Avon nail polishes before but I wasn’t too amazed with their formula, they aren’t expensive but I didn’t find them to be long wearing at all –  I wasn’t too thrilled to try out these two gel finished nail polishes (R59. 99),I tried them anyway and I have to say the colours totally won me over I don’t have anything like it in my ever growing nail polish collection.

Avon sent me two shimmer shades called Pink Shimmer and Sheer Shimmer both of these contains glitter particles, not over powering at all but the formula does contain some for the perfect shimmer effect. They do give off this stunning gel look and the shimmer just brings life into the colours and not dull looking at all.

How well do these wear you ask? I think the wear is pretty standard to my Essence nail polishes without a top coat you could get up to 3 days of wear before they do start to chip. I will definitely be using these two shades a lot this Spring,  especially the bold pink colour I am all for bright nails during the warmer months… They also do offer a variety of different shades to choose from I would suggest getting a top coat it will make the colour last longer especially when you a lazy person like me and find it to be such a chore to paint my nails.

Have you guys perhaps used any Avon Gel Finish nail polishes before?

  • The colours do look gorgeous!

    I’ve tried their polishes before and I wasnt very pleased…not that long lasting to be honest. The colours are pretty but 3 days isnt enough for me.

    • I know what you mean! I’m so lazy I do my nails once a week and expect 5 days wear at least haha

  • I love the details. Very beautiful.

  • I love the colours of the nail varnishes.

  • These look lovely! I love freshly painted nails but always find it so much effort to re-paint them. If these last longer with a top coat I may have to give them a go. x


    • A top coat always done wonders yet a step I always seem to forget haha

  • Good to know that these nail polishes are better with top coats, I love shades of them 🙂


  • I was just thinking the same thing. I can say that you have only polishes in my collection, black and white, LMAO. It was from Halloween last year, LOL. I know, completely the saddest thing you’ve ever heard.

  • I love Avon nail polish and the gel range that you have here is my favourite. Shame that they last only 3 days without top coat for you because they last a long time on me and I am rough with my hands due to housework.

    • Hehe me too I am always working with hands and cooking so I need a strong nail polish that doesn’t peel off quickly I just really like these shades

  • I’ve never used Avon nail polish, but after going through my old collection of goopy polishes, it’s time to get some new ones! Albeit, with my job, I definitely need one that’s longer lasting :/ Great review though!

    I’ve in the past tried out some of their polishes and actually liked them. I wonder if quality is different in the USA. –Hanna Lei
