If you're into creme nail polishes, then you're going to fall in ♥ with Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Artic Waters. Artic Waters is a difficult shade to describe as it's so complex: it's a deep blue, chock full of silver shimmers.
Despite the shimmers, though, it has quite a smooth finish & it's easy to remove. This is a truly stunning & unique color & I can't honestly think of any dupe for it. Also, the shade is quite pigmented so you only need 2 coats for the color to be opaque.
And the formula is lovely too: even though it's on the thick side, it's still easy to apply & achieve an even coverage. However, it takes a while to dry, so I'd recommend applying it while watching a movie or something. Or just apply a quick-drying top coat on top to reduce the drying time to just 5 mins.
However, the main con of this product is that it chips really easily on me if I don't use a top coat. It was fine for the first couple of days but on the 3rd, I noticed really bad chips. All the other reviews I read about this polish don't mention this problem so it could just be that I experienced it because I use my hands a lot. If you're gentler with them, it might last longer on you. But I was really disappointed to see that it chipped so badly so soon.

My Overall Rating
I give Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Artic Waters a 4/5. It's one of the most beautiful nail polishes I've ever come across: a deep blue with silver shimmers, it's a lovely formula that's easy to apply & provides an opaque coverage in just 2 coats. Although easy to remove, it can take a while to dry & it chips easily. The color is really unique though, so if you really want it, go for it.
