Avon Urban Grey + Bornpretty store review
Posted on Tuesday, December 7, 2010 | 13 Comments
I had bought the color vintage grey from Avon a few months ago but had never tried it so I thought that today would be the day....Well the polish FAILS!!! Either it would not dry or it took forever to dry!Also, it applied somewhat goopy. ARGH! I own quite a few Avon polishes and this is the only bad one i've encountered...so. ..don't buy Vintage grey!
Here's what it looks like right now: will go into detail about this mani at the end of the post =)
The grey looked bland so I did some nail art on them. I used the the 2 way nail art nail polish liners provided to me for review from the born pretty store
The polishes are boxed in a separate box from your other products
These are the jelly/ cream colors. -->the sky blue leaked a bit but it didn't smear onto the other polishes
dark blue, orange, dark red, green, dark green, blue, black, yellow, raspberry red, red, yellowish orange
Glitters: orange, blue, silver, gold, pink, purple
Metallics/ frosts: orange, fuchsia, green, copper, pink, grey, purple
These polishes are double ended.
1.You get a super fine metal tip. When you squeeze the bottle, polish comes out, the weird metal needle looking thing that is attached to every bottle fits into the metal tip to dislodges any polish that has hardened so that polish will always flow out of the metal tip
2. You have a thin paintbrush end. I have it compared to a 0.7mm lead pencil to show you how fine the paintbrush end is.
This is the design I came up with:
The thin stripes came from the metal tip of the 2 way nail art brush and the thick stripes came from the paintbrush end.
Then I used the 12 Color 3D Steel Ball Nail Art Glitter Decoration in purple (was received from bornprettystore.com) to add more ommph to my nails..maybe too much ommph.
Maybe I should have done them all in the same direction... or maybe I didn't need the steel balls at all..eh. =)
Disclaimer - The products were sent to me for review with no payment. My opinion is an honest one.
What is super fun is that Jessica, the owner of bornprettystore.com has given me my own coupon code : SWNAIL, 10% off till 03/31/2011
But! If you use my code SWNAIL, on top of the 10% you also get a free keychain flashlight!
