Review by Lee
I’m really excited as this is my first post on New Love-Makeup! I really want to thank Bhumika for giving me such an opportunity.
Lately I’ve been feeling very low and sick. I had just recuperated from jaundice when Mr. viral came knocking. I just feel like laying down in bed all day long with all the lights turned off. But one thing that is making me smile in my bad days is the lovely nail paint on my nails which I am going to review today. . It is a beautiful shade called Swift Sherbet’ from Avon.
Price: Rs.199/- for 8ml
Use Before 3 yrs of manufacturing
It claims: Avon brings to you the new and improved nail wear that dries and sets in just 30 seconds! Avon’s Speed Dry + Nail Enamel gives you glamorous and flattering nails every day and for any occasion.
Avon recently launched a variety of vibrant shades in their Speed dry+ Collection. They’re very girly and cute and I cant wait to pick up atleast 5. While all the blogosphere is going gaga over the Maybelline Color Show I’m going to introduce an Avon beauty which deserves a lot more attention.
Swift sherbert is a pastel milky peach which makes my nails pop. I’ve always wanted a salmon colored nail paint and this is the closest to it. It can make your hands look a bit dull and dark so those with tanned hands might want to avoid it. Though, personally I love the stark contrast of pastels against tanned/dark hands so its all about personal preference.
It comes in a small sturdy glass bottle with a black plastic handle. It contains a good amount of product with a decent brush. The brush fans out properly and I can easily cover the nail in 2 swipes.
The texture is nice and of a good consistency. It isn’t watery or runny and has decent pigmentation. 2 coats will easily give an opaque finish . It’s the most pigmented pastel nail paint I have as most pastels Nps are quite sheer.
It does get patchy especially in the first coat but gives an even finish by the second.
Surprisingly the 30 second drying part is true and even though I didn’t not exactly time it but it did dry very very quickly. I absolutely hate applying nail paints and waiting for hours(sure feels like it) for it to dry off so a big yay for this one!
It lasted for 3 days without chipping after which I faced minimal chipping. By day 5 it did start to chip quite a bit . However, if you apply this with a top coat you can easily get perfectly manicured nails for 5+ days.
1)A unique pastel peach which I haven’t seen in the Indian market yet
2)Does not chip for 5 days with a top coat
4)Dries very quickly
5)Did not stain my nails
6)The bottle is sturdy and travel friendly
1)Gives a patchy finish in the first coat.
Final recommendation- Swift Sherbet is a beautiful pastel peach which grabs attention instantly. It has a nice consistency and lasts a good amount of days. It dries very quickly however it does give a patchy finish in the first coat which is easily rectified by the second coat. If you love pastels then you should definitely give this a try.
