Avon Gel Shine nail polishes*

Ahoy!

Prije nekog vremena je na moju adresu stigao divan Avon paketić sa njihovim Gel Shine lakovima za nokte. Vjerujem da je većina vas već upoznata sa ovom linijom lakova, koja se prije zvala Gel Finish, jer su već duže vrijeme dio Avon ponude. Prije par mjeseci su izbacili i nekoliko novih nijansi - Mint to be, Rain Washed, Citronized, Emerald City, Sapphired Up i Orange you crazy - od kojih ću vam ja danas pokazati dvije - Sapphired Up i Rain Washed, te dvije starije - Red Velvet i Purplicious. Sve skupa mi je stiglo sedam lakova, no ja sam dva poklonila, jer ih stvarno imam puno i bojim se da će mi ladica sa lakovima eksplodirati.


Some time ago I recieved a lovely Avon package with their Gel Shine nail polishes. I believe most of you are already familiar with this line of polishes, formerly known as Gel Finish, because they have been a part of Avon's offer for a long time. Few months ago they released couple of new shades - Mint to be, Rain Washed, Citronized, Emerald City, Sapphired Up i Orange you crazy - from which I'll show you two - Sapphired Up and Rain washed, and two older ones - Red Velvet and Purplicious. I recieved seven polishes in total, but I gave two away, because I really have a lot of them and I fear my drawer with polishes will explode.

Lakovi dolaze u standardnim Avon crnim, kartonskim kutijicama na kojima se nalaze sve informacije vezane za proizvod. Dolaze u količini od 10ml i u trenutnom katalogu koštaju 6,90 KM. Četkica je srednje duga, srednje široka i ravno rezana, te je vrlo lako rukovati njome. Tekstura je srednje gusta i lijepo se nanosi. Kako im i ime kaže, imaju sjajan, gel završetak. Suše se srednje brzo, ali ako ih poprskate Avon Liquid Freeze sprejem to sušenje se svede na maksimum jednu minutu. Pigmentacija i trajnost ovisi od nijanse do nijanse, no kod većine su zaista dobre. 


Polishes come in standard Avon black, cardboard boxes which contain all the information about the product. They come in amount of 10ml. The brush is medium long, medium wide and cut straight, and is very easy to handle. Texture is medium thick and applies nicely. As their name implies, they have a glossy, gel finish. They don't dry very fast, but if you use Avon Liquid Freeze spray, the drying reduces to one minute max. Pigmentation and durability varies from shade to shade, but in most they are quite good.

Red Velvet


Red velvet je tamnija crvena koja na određenom svjetlu izgleda skoro kao boja vina. U sebi sadrži sitni shimmer koji mu daje divan, gotovo metalik odsjaj. Trajnost mu je najbolja od ove trojice, te mi je bez nadlaka trajao 6 dana bez guljenja. 


Red velvet is a darker red shade, which in a certain light looks almost like the color of wine. It contains tiny shimmer which gives it a lovely, almost metallic shine. Its durability is the best of all three, and without top coat it lasted 6 days without peeling off.



Purplicious


Purplicious je divna, kraljevska ljubičasta sa hladnim podtonom. Tekstura mu je divna, pigmentacija također dobra, no trajnost je slabija nego kod ostalih lakova i brže se skida. No činjenica da izdrži 4 dana na noktima bez guljenja je sasvim OK. U svakom slučaju nijansa je predivna.

Purplicious is gorgeous, royal purple with cool undertone. Its texture is good, pigmentation too, but the durability is lower than with other polishes and it comes off quicker. But the fact that it lasts 4 days on nails without peeling off is quite OK. In any case, this shade is gorgeous.




Sapphired Up & Rain Washed


Ove dvije nijanse sam stavila skupa jer sam ih iskoristila za jednu manikuru. Sapphired Up je divna, tamna plava nijansa. Inače nisam ljubitelj ni plave boje ni plavih lakova, no ovaj mi je baš prelijep. Super mi je za ljeto, za razne "morske" manikure, no biti će dobra i za zimske ;) Rain Washed je skroz neobična nijansa i, unatoč mojoj prevelikoj ljubavi prema tamnim lakovima, skroz me osvojila. Nijansa varira između svijetle plave i svijetle lila, ovisi o osvjetljenju. Lijep je i kremast i prilično dugo traje bez nadlaka, kao i Sapphired Up.


I've put these two shades together because I used them for a manicure. Sapphired Up is a lovely, dark blue shade. I am generally not a fan of the color blue or blue polishes, but I find this one really pretty. It's great for summer, for different "marine" manicures, but it will aslo be good for winter manicures ;) Rain Washed is totally unusual shade and, despise my extreme love for dark polishes, it completely bedazzled me. The shade varies between light blue and light lilac, depending on the lighting. It is nice and creamy and lasts a long time without the top coat, just like Sapphired Up.


A evo i manikura :)
 


And here is the manicure :)




Nijanse sva četiri laka su predivne i ovo su po mom mišljenju najbolji lakovi u Avon ponudi, a i općenito su visoko na ljestvici kvalitetnih lakova. Divan spektar nijansi, pigmentacija i trajnost će sigurno zadovoljiti veliku većinu lakoljubaca - mene sigurno jesu :) 

All four shades of polishes are gorgeous and these are, in my opinion, the best polishes Avon has to offer and they are generally high on the list of quality polishes. Delightful range of shades, pigmentation and durability will sure satisfy the vast majority of nail polish lovers - they sure satisfied me :)

  1. Osobno ne volim previše lakove za nokte i pravi sam antitalent kad je riječ o lakiranju, ali imam par Avon lakova i dosta su mi dobri. Inače mi se jako sviđa ove 2 plave i napravila si super manikuru s njima. :D
