NOTD: Avon Nail Wear Pro Urban Grey


Just a fast post today, as I am suffering from a major cold. I have been lucky, and haven't been sick in almost three years. My luck has ended.

I did a review of this (and two other colours that were new at the time) but my photos were less than satisfactory, and I know a lot of you were interested in this shade. This was introduced as a summer colour... not too sure why, but it is a light grey that stays light even with multiple coats. I have been waiting to get the Joe Fresh mid tone grey for fall, but it I haven't seen it on the shelf yet. So I decided to wear this for a while.

In the photo I have two coats and a top coat and you can see a bit of white showing, but in person it isn't visible. I liked that this went on easily and streak free. All too often light white tones tend to end up a streaky mess. Again, like most Avon polishes, this took forever to dry, but overall I like this polish both in colour and wear. I have gone five days with no chips. I used Avon Nail Experts Adhesive Base Coat and Essie To Dry For as my top coat (love that stuff!)

Okay, I have to go back to bed... over and out for now!

  1. I have this too and I love it! I prefer to layer on 3 coats to achieve an almost perfect opacity and too darken the color a little.

    One of my guy friend asked me what was that color on my nails and I said it's a light grey, and he said it looked like the fingers of a dead person LOL.

    I posted your giveaway prize on my blog, and I will do a separate post about it, too. Again, thank you very, VERY much! I'm really enjoying everything! =D
