Avon Frill Lounge Dress & Lace One Bra

Uh–oh, I found another product from Avon which I know I’m going to get LOTS more of, the One Bra! 

The first thing I do when I get in from work is taking my underwired bra off.  It doesn’t matter what style or size I wear, by the end of the day I’m desperate to get it off which is why I started looking for a comfy alternative.   This is my first and won’t be my last.  The Lace One Bra is sooooo comfortable, the lace front is a nice touch and it’s good quality too. 
I ordered size 14/16, easy to put on over my head, I didn’t adjust the straps and luckily for me, it fit perfectly.  The lace is soft and stretchy, the double straps cross over the back, and has removable cups.  For my bust size it gives excellent support, and most of all, comfort.  87% Nylon, 13% Elastane.
Which brings me to my next new piece of comfortable clothing, the Frill Lounge Dress.  The first thing that struck me about the dress was the quality of the material.  I was expecting it to be T-Shirt material, or similar to PJ material, but it’s thicker than that and has a fleece backing. 
The Frill Lounge dress will be perfect for pottering around the house and garden, or when you get out the bath/shower and it’s too early for PJs but you want something comfy to wear. 
The fabric is super soft, I love the frilly armholes and has two patch pockets on the front.  I’m 5ft 6in and ordered size 14/16.  86% Cotton, 14% Polyester.

Avon True Colour BB 7-in-1 Nail Enamels - Lilac Love, Restoring Beige, Perfect Pink, Caring Creme

I have 4 super nail enamel shades from the Avon True Colour BB 7-in-1 collection to share with you today.
So what does BB stand for and what is the 7-in-1?

 Well, BB stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm and is a product that claims to do the job of several other products and I’ve received confirmation directly from Avon that the benefits of the 7-in-1 are:

 1. Creamy flawless colour
2. Smooths and evens
3. Covers imperfections
4. Prevents discolouration
5. Protects
6. Primes
7. Fills ridges

 As well as all the above all Avon’s nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).

Let’s crack on with the individual shades, first up Lilac Love, a pretty pastel shade
Next we have Restoring Beige, a creamy terracotta shade
Here we have Perfect Pink, a pretty delicate shade
And finally, Caring Creme, a very pale peach
Perfect Pink & Caring Creme are quite similar and both needed 3 coats, maybe that why they smooth and even, cover imperfections and fill ridges because I applied so many layers!

 Below is the set with and without camera flash so you can see what the shades look like in the bottles.  L-R Lilac Love, Restoring Beige, Perfect Pink, Caring Creme
Which is your fave shade from the collection? Would you like to see more colours in the 7-in-1 range?

Avon Gel Shine Nail Enamels - So Jelly & Bittersweet

Last week I showed you two contrasting shades from the Avon True Colour range, and today I’m doing the same with two from the Mark Gel Shine range.
First of all we have So Jelly, a fun mauve shade, slightly crelly, you certainly need at least 2 coats for full coverage. Your nails will pop with this adorable colour.
Next, Bittersweet, a warm spiced pumpkin shade, very pretty and a super summery.
Although these shades are worlds apart from each other, they team up so well and would look great worn together. I’d wear So Jelly with Bittersweet on my thumb and ring finger…..Oh, I might just try that!
The perfect colour combo, reminds me of a Jolly Joker pansy
As always, both applied superbly, come in 10ml bottles and have a good brush.

Born Pretty Store Glitter Sequin UV Gel Nail Polish / Top Coat

I've got a couple of manis to share with you today using Glitter Sequins UV Gel Nail Polish from Born Pretty Store.
The UV Gel polish has a clear base and lots of sparkly glitter particles.  I applied the UV Gel polish over regular nail polish and cured under an LED lamp.  I used a dabbing method to apply and place the glitter particles.  I think it'd look great over many different colours, especially dark shades.  5ml bottle.
Check out my YouTube clip below
To the pics!


Over black, the glitter sequins look amazing and really pop and flash on your nails
The Glitter Sequins UV Gel Nail Polish is currently $2.99 / £2.17 / €2.44.  You can also use my 10% discount code HXBQ10 which gets you 10% off full priced items. Check out the Born Pretty Store  website for loads of cool nail art goodies.

Avon True Colour Nail Enamels - Royal Raspberry & Simply Cinnamon

The two Avon True Color Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel shades I'm going to share with you today are like chalk and cheese but pair up beautifully.
First up, Royal Raspberry, a sultry magenta shade, more of a damson or plum shade than raspberry, and definitely a 2 or 3 coater due to its crelly formulation.
Onto Simply Cinnamon, a cross between an antique rose shade and peachy terracotta, with a creme formulation.
So are you a Raspberry Ripple or a Cinnamon Swirl?

Both applied superbly, come in 10ml bottles and have a good brush. 

I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.

Born Pretty Store - Launch of New Nail Polish Packaging from 6th June 2018

Born Pretty Store are launching new packaging for their nail polishes and they have kindly sent me a magical polish to review.  The nail polish is boxed, 6ml, has a nice slim black lid with gold trim and gold writing on the front.  The brush is great and the nail polish applied very well.
Onto the nail polish.  The box says 'Flower In Sunshine Series', I don't know if that the name of the actual shade or collection of polishes.  The sheer turquoise polish has an iridescent shimmer and packed with sparkle, check out my video below.
To the pics!
 Isn't this just gorgeous!
