Avon Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel in Brown Pearl ~ Review and 'On Nails'

What Avon says about 'Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel':  
Fabulous in 30 seconds!!! The quick-as-flash formula takes under 30 seconds to dry. 

  • New and improved formula with Fast Dry Technology.
  • Provides full and even coverage and high shine finish.
  • Stays color true and resists dulling.
After having a good experience with Avon Simply Pretty Nail Enamel and after reading the claims of Speed Dry+ I had much higher expectations on it. So did it meet my expectations?? Read on...

Price:  Originally priced at 165 INR but purchased in offer at 115 INR

Look & Feel:
  • Shade: It's more reddish maroon than brown. Reading the name 'Brown Pearl' I expected some brown with silvery or pearly sheen to it but it's no where a match to what I imagined.  Not so impressed with this particular shade but Speed Dry Plus have other drool worthy range of colors. Do check them out.
  • Fragrance: Very strong alcoholic smell which stays around for around 30 minutes.
  • Package & Applicator: It comes in a stylish rectangular bottle and a square cap. The applicator though  comparatively  short and thin is quite comfortable to use.

The Effects

L2R: Double to Single Coat
  • Opacity? Full color in single coat but for proper finish 2 coats are a must.
  • Drying Time? As claimed dries within 30 seconds.
  • Finish? Semi matte finish. It has to be applied very quickly due to the fast drying formula. Else the finish will not be smooth.
  • Chipping Time? 4 to 5 days
  • Fading Time? The second day itself I noticed fading at tips which increased as the days passed  :(

Day 3
  • Dulling? Justifies this claim as the color and shine were the same on Day 4 as they were on Day 1.
Final Note:  The fast drying formula is actually impacting the application and will be uncomfortable to apply on right hand if you are not ambidextrous. I am not sure if it's the shade or the product but the finish is not highly shiny as claimed. For these reasons Speed Dry+ will not be a page in my Like Book.
