Today's Manicure Monday features Alaska by Avon. This beauty is from their Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel Collection.
Alaska is a gorgeous cloudy grey colour with a hint of blue. Avon claims that this beauty contains the following seven benefits in one bottle:
1 - shine
2 - Gel-like Finish
3 - Vivid Color
4 - Base Coat
5 - Top Coat
6 - Protection
7 - Strengthener
This sounded very promising so I had to give it a try...
Application and Formula:
This was quite a creamy consistency and I applied 2 coats to get an opaque finish. I found that it did apply evenly and the brush handle was user-friendly.
I decided to be bit creative and paired it with a few designs using my IZ Hammon Africa Decor It Pen.
I was quite impressed at how long this colour lasted considering it is a bit light and I usually have to touch up my white nail polish quite often. I got a good week out of this application which is really impressive.
I will definitely use this product again because it gives off a really beautiful gel-like finish without the need of a UV lamp and harsh chemicals. The added bonus is that I don't need to spend more money to get them soaked off at a nail bar because normal nail polish remover will do the job.
Alaska retails for R99.90 from your nearest Avon rep. They are currently having a promo which you can view, here.
I hope everyone has a lovely week ahead,
