Avon Pro Colour in 60 Seconds - The Brights

Avon has recently launched 18 new shades in their 'Pro Colour 60 Second' range.  
Today I'm sharing with you the 6 'Bright' shades
🌟 Charging Melon
🌟 High Speed Pink
🌟 Lightening Red
🌟 Plum & Done
🌟 Rapid Fire
🌟 Think Fast Pink
The Avon brochure says the nail enamel has a 3-in-1 base coat, colour and top coat formula, however, I would always use a separate base coat and apply a top coat. The brush is slightly wider than previous Avon nail enamels, but not the widest I've ever used.

Born Pretty Store UV Gel Glitter Nail Polish - Dream of Night - Item 42883

The sun is out and shining bright, so that means glitter nails!  I love looking at my nails when they sparkle away in the sun, especially if there's a bit of holo thrown in!  So for this mani, I used a UV Gel nail polish from Born Pretty Store named Dream of Night, which is a mauve chunky glitter with holographic particles.  The polish is from 'The Starry Sky' gel series, a collection of 24 glitter shades.
I applied 2 coats of the UV Gel polish and topped with 2 coats of UV gel top coat to give a smooth surface.  Comes in a 6ml bottle.
Check out my YouTube clip below where you can see the polish glistening in the sunshine.

NICOLE DIARY - Satin Chrome / Foil Effect Nail Polishes

Hello!  Today's post is about a set of 5 satin chrome, metallic, foil nail polishes from Nicole Diary which I bought from Amazon.  The polishes don't have shades names, the colours are red, light blue, emerald green, light green and gunmetal grey.
The first thing I want to say about this collection is that the brush is wide which I really like. If you have small fingernails you'll probably be able to cover your nail in one swipe.

I applied the polishes over false nails which have a smooth unblemished surface. The polishes dried down to a smooth satin chrome effect which is stunning.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I also applied them to my natural nails after I'd buffed them to give a smooth surface. I found the nail polishes looked better without using any base coat. The polishes weren't as satin smooth as over the false nails but they were just as lovely.
 
I also applied a glossy top coat to my nails and the effect changed from a satin chrome to a shiny foil effect and also changed the colour of some of the polishes, the effect is still amazing, the top coat makes them look brighter.

 Whichever you prefer you have the option of satin chrome or shiny foil, and I reckon they'll be very good for stamping too!

The new Sassy Floral Collection from Avon's Mark Gel Shine range

Here's another new collection from Avon, The Sassy Florals from the Mark Gel Shine Range.  A set of 3 hot and 3 pastel shades, perfect for Spring and Summer.  All are 2 coats without top coat to show you how glossy they are, however, I would always recommend using a top coat to increase the longevity of your mani.

BORN PRETTY STORE holographic nail polish Item #43343 Shade BP-NR04 Pink Garden of Eden

I've another gorgeous holographic nail polish from Born Pretty Store called Pink Garden of Eden.
The polish has a sheer milky iridescent base with a fine sprinkling of holographic particles.  I applied 2 coats of Pink Garden of Eden and topped with 1 coat of top coat, the polish dries a little matte, so you need a glossy top coat.  In the sunshine the holographic particles sparkle.
Comes in a dinky 6ml bottle.

Born Pretty Store Magnetic Cat Eye Nail Polish - Item #44184 - Shade #BP-MH02 Give My Heart

I'm so loving the Magnetic Cat Eye nail polishes from Born Pretty Store.  I have another one to share with you called Give My Heart.  It has a sheer dark base crammed with gold flakies and when you apply the magnet you get an amazing cosmic green stripe across the nail, it's truly amazing.  It reminds me of the aurora borealis.
I applied the Magnetic Cat Eye nail polish over a black base, if I hadn't, I would've had to apply quite a lot of coats to achieve the same effect. There are 6 colours in the collection and this is number BP-MH02 and I bet all of the other colours are just as fantastic as this one.
If you use magnetic nail polishes you'll know the magnetic stripe becomes less sharp as it dries.  Comes in a 6 ml bottle.
Check out my YouTube clip at the bottom for a demonstration.
The Magnetic Cat Eye Nail Polish  is currently $4.99 / £3.77 / €4.26.

NICOLE DIARY - Set of 8 pots of Nail Art Glitter Sequins & Iridescent Flakes

I recently purchased a set of 8 glitters from Nicole Diary on Amazon for nail art.  The set contains 4 pots of sequin glitter in red & blue, fuchsia pink and silver, gold and red, blue & gold, and 4 pots of hexagonal shaped iridescent flakes in lilac, pink, green and purple.  
I tried them using UV Gel nail polishes and regular nail polishes and the worked fine with both.
I've used the glitters for nail art, and the box states they can be used for makeup and beauty and artwork.
Check out my video demonstration at the end of this post.
 Below, using the pink, green and lilac hexagonal iridescent flakes over a blue/green base (Avon Mint To Be).  This is my mermaid mai.
