I’m back with another nail polish post. You know me; I can never own too many nail polishes! This is another lovely shade from the Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel Range. They have three categories of nail polish- Crème, Shimmer and Sequins. I’ve already reviewed Coral Beat from their Crème range. The shade in the spotlight today called Romance is from the ‘Shimmer’ collection. So let us get into the review!
Rs 159 for 8 ml
The packaging is same as the other Avon Nailwear pro+ nail polishes – a rectangular bottle with a black cap. The shades in the shimmer collection are supposed to have shimmer in them, you would think. I don’t know about the others, but Romance definitely does not. Okay, wait. If you take a magnifying glass, maybe you can spot VERY fine shimmer but that’s how fine it is. I’d call the finish more metallic than shimmery!
Coming to the shade – when you think ‘romance’, if you think of pinkish, blushing float-y girly tones then this polish includes all of those! The shade is so romantic! I really can’t use any one colour to describe this nail polish because it changes colour as the light hits it. I think it is essentially a very light shade of pink. It shines a slightly deeper pink. It has slight lavender tones as well. It’s one of those shades that instantly make your hands look fairer.
The photos show two thick coats of the nail polish. It is maybe 99% opaque so I left it at that. I’d recommend three thin coats for full opacity. Also, when you apply this on your nails, it doesn’t shine as much as other nail polishes. You can see in the photos, I’ve clicked them right after applying the second coat: the finish is not very lustrous. In fact it has a slightly glazed finish. But I think that’s what makes it different. It’s muted and yet so soft and elegant!
Another thing I love about the Nailwear Pro+ range is that the nail polish actually stays on my nails for almost a week without chipping off. I hate having to change or touch up my nail polish every three days!
- Lovely colour
- Smooth application
- Colour stays true
- Reasonable price
- Does not chip for 5-7 days
If you’re sick of blues, greens, purples and tangerines then Romance is the perfect departure from all those in-your-face shades. It’s sophisticated, feminine and so pretty on the nails! I think this will look lovely on all skin tones. Highly recommended :)
