An Update And A Nails Of The Day - AVON Gel Shine Nail Enamel - Citronized

Hey Guys x I hope you've all had a good week x I've been a little bit under the weather this week but I've been busy doing bit of blog admin and I'm also trying to sort out my SEO. Having over 9 years of blog post to go through, I think I've  under estimated the task but this is the way that blogging's gone and if you can't beat them then you have to join them- no guesses what I'm going to working on for the next month or so then! Anyways, apart from sleeping, and getting stressed over back links and no follow links, I have managed to take quite a few photos and I managed to film a few You Tube videos, so normal posting and video uploads will resume from today.

Despite a pretty positive weather forecast this week has turned into a bit of a damp squib, it's been dull, and boy has it rained! Having just watched the weather forecast better weather is hopefully on the way but in the meantime I decided to brighten up my day with a super bright nail polish.

AVON Gel Shine Nail Enamel is Citronized is one of those shades that people will either love or hate. It's a way brighter than it's appearing here and it's a very bright, yellowy, lime shade, think Shrek, pond slime or even mushy peas before they took out the artificial colouring! - this is one noticeable shade but it's one that I can totally get on board with.

I don't really find a great deal of difference between the AVON Nailwear Pro polishes and the Gel polishes but this polish is probably a touch thicker then the Nailwears. With a wide brush and a thick formulation you would expect this polish to cover really well, and in a round about way it does. The application was a touch streaky but the polish levelled out nicely, and as AVON claim one coat was probably enough on most nails.

As per usual though I went for two coats, and as well as an even finish and a great depth of colour, what was apparent with this polish was the shine - this colour was super, super glossy, I did apply a top coat after I'd took these pictures but gloss wise it really didn't need it . I can't really comment on wear time because I used a top coat but as I say I haven't found a lot of difference between these and AVON's original nail enamel formulation.

Citroized definitely isn't for everyone but for the summer season I think it's a real winner. The super bright colour looks great with a tan be it real or fake, and it's just a happy colour and one that is bound to get you noticed. AVON Gel Shine Nail Enamel in Citronized comes in a 10ml bottle and has a recommended retail price of £7 but it's currently half price on both the AVON UK website and in the latest sale brochure x Are you a fan of lime green nails or are they a bit too much like pond slime for you? Let me know in the comments x

  1. I don't know if I could pull off this shade as I'm a bit old (!), but it's good to see the finish which is lovely, and it would certainly make me consider buying Avon nail polish.
