I'm really excited about sharing my thoughts about this product with you. It's a new nail art product from Avon that isn't yet on sale in the UK, so you can get the lowdown up-front right here!

Glitter Glam Nail Glitter Pots are from the Avon Colour Trend range. Everything from Colour Trend is dirt cheap, so you can look fabulous without breaking the bank! Who doesn't love a beauty bargain!?

These wicked little pots contain light-reflective, ultra-fine, gorgeous nail glitter. It's currently available in 3 shades, "Silver", "Hello Halo", and "Black Bling", and I couldn't resist testing them all. I'm hoping that Avon come up with more shades - an eye-catching gold would look great, and maybe an intense red for a glitzy Autumn manicure.

As always, I've added my helpful high-res photos to this review, so you can see the results for yourself.

It's dead simple to use, but instructions are included anyway (see image - right). Paint your nails with a clear base coat, followed by a coloured polish if desired. While your nails are still wet, apply a coat of glitter to the nail using a brush of some kind (used an old eyeshadow brush), then lightly blow away any excess. For even more eye-catching results, apply one coat of clear polish and re-apply the glitter. Finish your nails by sealing in the glitter with 2 coats of top coat - I think a high-gloss one looks best.

For a more subtle look, use one or two coats of glitter over clear polish. To add more depth to your manicure, apply one coat of glitter over a coordinating shade of nail polish. I applied the glitter over 3 of my favorite Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel shades; "Golden Vision", "Orchid Splash", "Noir Emerald". My preferred result was achieved by using Nailwear Pro+ in "Orchid Splash" finished with the nail glitter in "Hello Halo" - I love the and ultra-feminine look!

Of course, you don't need to apply the glitter to a full set. Try painting your nails with you chosen colour, then applying the glitter to just your ring finger to jazz up you usual manicure. Gorgeous! (See image - right.)

I love the eye-catching, professional salon-style look you can easily achieve with this product. It adds a fun, party-perfect finish to any shade, perfect for day or night!

I actually haven't found any disadvantages to this product. All I can say is, if you choose to use an old eyeshadow brush for application like I did, make sure you then reserve it just for nail glitter use, as if you use it for make up again you'll probably get glitter in your eyes! More shades please, Avon!

Another great product for adding a touch of sparkle to your nails is the Avon Opal Top Coat - click here to read my review!

Avon also sell a Nail Art Tool, which is a double-ended tool for adding unique designs to your manicure - click here to read my review!

Just a recent snap of myself. My hair bleach has nearly all grown out and I'm loving my ginger locks (not usually as bright as it is in the photo, I've just upped the contrast). Time for a new hair cut, I reckon!
