Avon Nailwear Pro+ in French Tip Lilac Review

By Friday, May 22, 2015 , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing another nail paint which I showed you in my On the Testing Table #2 post. It is Avon Nailwear Pro+ in French Tip Lilac. This month I have been really into liking lilacs, in my last nail paint post I reviewed Maxfactor Nail Paint in Lilac Lace and today it’s French Tip Lilac. Colour likings apart let’s get on with the review.

Product Description:
Contains dura plus complex & gelatin for flexibility. Finish on nails is resistant to chipping.

Price: 2.27 USD



Performance:
It is difficult for me too explain the shade but I will try it anyway. To me it looks like a white nail polish is mixed with a little bit of pink and purple colours to it and the end result is French Tip Lilac. I could be completely wrong with the explanation but all in all it is a pretty pastel shade and perfect for the season. The brush is a standard nail polish brush round and straight cut at top. 


Formula wise they are quite creamy and smooth but they do get streaky and in my opinion it has more to do with the brush than the formula of the nail paint. It is nicely pigmented considering it is a pastel shade; you just need two coats for the perfect look. On its own the staying power is pretty average, it stayed good for two days with slight fading and chipping along the sides but by the end of fourth day it chipped pretty badly. With a base and top coat it lasted nicely for five days with minor chipping along the edges. I think with these nail paints a base and top coat is a must.


The Good:
  • Affordable
  • Nice colour selection
  • Pigmented
  • Nice formula
The Bad:
  • Can get streaky
  • Availability could be an issue
  • Average staying power
I really like the shade a lot and the way it looks on my nails. I know that this gets streaky and the staying power is not that amazing but still I like it. Streakiness is not visible until you are looking up close and with top coat it is hardly visible. These are quite affordable and are on offers quite often. I am definitely going to get other shades from this range.
