I have had my eye out for Avon’s Instant Manicure Dry Nail Enamel Strips, as it is intriguing to me, but I cannot imagine that it actually works. When I say works, I mean is lasting and is pretty. There is a real nuance to applying nail polish that lasts and looks great, and I find it hard to believe that this product is going to cover all of those issues. I have questions:
Do you wear base coat? Top coat? Is is shiny after all of that pressing on it to get it into place? Can you apply top coat?
KOMO News has an article and an accompanying video that asks and attempts to answer the question - Does it work?
Instant Nails gets a thumbs up if your nails fit the strip sizes. Thumbs down for anyone with very wide finger nails. If they want it to work for everyone, Avon has some work to do.
Instant Manicure is sold in sets of 16 strips for $8.00 and comes in ten colors.
Avon says the finish lasts 14 days, and while the strips do dry to a nice hard finish, Rosie told me she found the nail tips chipped about as much as with regular nail polish.
I guess to them it worked, but I am a much tougher critic. I am thinking of giving it a try. Have you tried it?
