I love watermelon shades for summer, and as soon as I saw Soaper1′s swatch of Mambo Melon, I knew it was just what I’d been craving.
Avon’s been on my mind a lot lately — I was pleasantly surprised by their lipglosses, and I just learned that they have a fabulously vampy nail polish shade called Tweed… I want it.
Anyway, here’s Soaper1′s take on one of the polishes from their Speed Dry+ formula (and I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of their line soon):
I haven’t used Avon polishes in many years, but I’ve been reading some favorable reviews and thought I should check them out. Avon has certainly broadened their color offering: blues, greens, and purples are now part of the lineup! So I decided to order a few.
Avon offers three formulas of nail polish: Speed Dry+, Nail Wear Pro, and Mirror Shine. Mambo Melon is a Speed Dry+ formula, a shimmery watermelon shade. Like other quick-drying polishes, this one was a little thick, but it still applied very nicely. I used 3 coats over Poshe 4-in-1 basecoat and used 1 coat of Poshe topcoat. You could easily do two coats of this.
I’m not easy on my nails and they take a lot of abuse. This polish has worn amazingly well — no tip wear or chips after three days.
