Avon's Magnetic Nail varnish/ Nails of the week!

So this is going to my nails of the week post as well as my first thoughts on Avon's new magnetic nail varnish. I've never tried a magnetic nail varnish, so this is also kind of a first impressions for me.
The way Avon do it is a little different from brands such as Barry M, the magnetic wand comes separately & you can choose from 4 designs whereas, the one's I've seen in shops have the magnet attached to the bottle in some way.
I went with the colour 'Hypnotic Bronze' as I  don't really have a colour like this so wanted to try it out!

So this is how it comes in the packaging, I think it's quite nice, just the regular Avon nail varnish bottle & the wand has enough space to be able to hold it comfortably & also enough surface area to cover your whole nail. 

This is what the first coat looks like, it advises you to apply a first coat on all nails, wait to dry & then apply the second coat one at a time & place the magnetic wand over your nail immediately after when the nail is still wet. I think the nail varnish itself is really good though, this is just one coat & it already looks opaque, just needs a few touch ups!
& this is the outcome! It was quite hard to show on camera, as it's one of those nail varnish's where it can look better in certain lights however, I tried my best to photograph it in a way that showed the outcome well enough!
I really like the outcome of this, it's quick and easy to do & gives a really nice look to your nails. As this is quite a subtle colour I do think that is why the outcome might of been harder to show, I think I'm also going to try a blue & the black with different wands, so I'll let you know if those colours have a stronger outcome.. but I do really like this colour & the outcome of this one too! These will be in the book after the current one & will be £3 (usual price will be £6 but their nail varnish are almost always on offer for 3!) & the wand will be 99p each. The only downside I would say about this product is that you have to buy the wand separately but I don't see it as too much of a problem because the ones that are out in the shops are around £5 & with Avon's you get a choice of the design you want.

Hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what you think & if you're going to try any of these out?



  1. Me and my friend are Avon reps and we both thought these would be terrible - I'm pleasantly surprised! Thanks for the review :) xx

    1. It turned out better than I expected although, it was the first type of these nail varnish's I've tried so hopefully I'll have a stronger outcome next time! :)
