Avon Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel in "Rebel Rose" - review + photos

My first review is of a new nail polish on the market, Avon Speed Dry+ in "Rebel Rose."

I love this shade. It's a chic magenta which is lovely and vibrant, but not too bright to try out if you're not one for bright colours (although I do love them myself). It's completely matte and comes out exactly the same shade as it looks in the bottle, although in the image my nails are ever-so-slightly shimmery as I used "Avon Nail Experts 24k Gold Strength" polish as a top coat.

The polish is the perfect consistency; it's not so thin that you have to apply a ridiculous number of coats, but it's not so thick that it never dries. I found that it was flawlessly opaque after 2 coats.

As the name "Speed Dry+" suggests, it's a quick drying polish which is always a good point. No one likes waiting for their nails to dry! I've rocked this beauty twice so far, and I used the second application as an opportunity to try out "Avon Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Quick Dry" spray, which is brilliant stuff, but I'll save that for another review as it deserves one of it's own.

It did begin to chip slightly on the tips and around the cuticles after a few days of wear. This doesn't really bother me as I don't mind touching-up my nails now and then, and I change my nail polish every few days anyway. However, if you wear your polish for longer than I do then be prepared to keep the bottle in your handbag to deal with any unwanted chips!

Overall, I think this is a great nail polish in a stunning colour. And at £6 a bottle, you can't go wrong!
