Nail Polish Lottery Club

Week 3

01.24.2013

By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

The Nail Polish Lottery Club creates a fun way in which to go through your unused/untried nail polish by selecting a random number each week on Mondays at 8:00 p.m. Based on members’ spreadsheet/database lists, whatever number corresponds on the list with the random number chosen, is the colour to try, wear, and post or v-blog about!

Would you like to join the club? Are you a nail polish hoarder? A secret nail painter? Do those colourful bottles just take your breath (and your budget) away every time you visit the beauty section of a store? Or would you like to just paint your nails from time to time and aren’t sure which polish to choose? Then this place is for you! (And Lindsay…and me…and oh, I don’t know how many others!).

For more details, check out the Nail Polish Lottery Guidelines here.

And now to the fun stuff!

This week’s random number is 79

If you don’t have 79 nail polishes then use 7+9=16 and if you don’t have 16 use 1+6=7.

Since I used #16 for last week’s lottery number, I’ll be using #7!

Number 7 on my nail polish spreadsheet listed is:

Avon Nailwear Pro #N526

Golden Sand

bottle - golden sand

***

The brand Avon Nailwear Pro is certainly underrated.  The first stroke went on smoothly and the colour was opaque and true to its hue with only two coats.

The colour itself, Golden Sand, has a hue of a tan-coral hybrid. It’s shiny, glossy with a hint of subtle sparkle, but not much. If you don’t like too much glitz, but enjoy slick, shiny colour, this nail polish will do.

It’s a light, neutral colour especially on my medium skin tone.  It’s an everyday wearable shade, though on me, not one of my personal favourites. It’s a colour, I think, I would reserve for early spring.

But, just because I love nails, don’t think I’ve forgotten about my first love — books!

To integrate both loves, I’ve decided to also include with my nail lottery posts, a book cover(s) that I own in my library that I think complements or can be said to inspire the nail polish colour of choice or its art.

Here’s what I found to complement, Avon Nailwear Pro #N526, Golden Sand:

book - golden sand1

Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

***

book - golden sand2

***

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

***

book - golden sand3

***

What Cassanova Told Me by Susan Swan

***

book - golden sand4

***

A Wall of Light by Edeet Ravel

***

book - golden sand5

Courage My Love by Sarah Dearing

Do you own any of the brand, Avon Nailwear Pro, nail polishes? If so, what do you think about the brand?

What do you think of the nail polish colour, “Golden Sand?” Would you wear it? Why or why not?

Have you read its corresponding books listed on this blog? 

Are you a part of the Nail Lottery Club?

    1. Thanks Diana. Avon Nailwear Pro isn’t bad at all. Quite a smooth application and a variety of colours. And it’s not cheap at all like I thought! My collection has grown over the years.
