Hi everyone, it's Nic from Strawberry Blonde Beauty here to discuss one of my favourite topics: GLITTER!
Anyone else up for a little sparkle as Autumn creeps in? I'm such a magpie when it comes to manicures and new Magic Effects Liquid Sequin Nailwear takes glitter polish to a whole new level! Worn alone, layered over your favourite colour, as an accent nail or glitter tips, the options really are endless...
Here are a few ideas on how to wear my favourite shades, Dazzle and Glimmer...
DAZZLE is a chunky glitter, with a mix of bronze micro glitter and large fuchsia pieces in a sheer purple base, giving an overall effect that really does look like little sequins on your nails! It works equally well alone or as a top coat over a dark shade like Perfectly Plum, as worn on my nails.
GLIMMER is a much finer glitter polish, which literally does glimmer rather than dazzle for a more subtle sparkle. This one has a more opaque base, with tonnes of gold and opalescent micro glitter. Personally I think it works best alone or on tips, though I've also shown it layered over Marine Blue Gel Finish for a different look.
For the nail wheel swatches I applied 1, 2 & 3 coats of Dazzle and Glimmer alone to give you an idea of opacity, then applied it over Gel Finish Nail Enamel in Perfectly Plum and Marine Blue as a full nail and glitter tips.
It's difficult to capture just how pretty these are on camera - they really come to life when they catch the light and I'll be wearing Dazzle a lot this Autumn!

Any other magpies out there fancy trying these? Which shade do you like best?
Hi can anyone else tell me if there are any other cases of customers getting allergic reactions to our Avon lipsticks? I am heart broken to have been recently told that I have become allergic to lip products I can not wear any of our beautiful products. I have never had a problem before ever but since using our gorgeous products, suddenly i got what i thought were the symptoms of cold sores. After months of wearing only blistex then trying to wear lipsticks again once symptoms cleared, have the doctors pin pointed the problem to Avon lipsticks. I have been advised to wear no coloured products on my lips by any brand whatsoever for at least 6 months then try again. The symptoms kept flaring up in exactly the same place on my lips. It appeared to start after I started wearing the gorgeous Ultra Colour Indugence Gel lipsticks. they felt amazing at first. I can only wear lip glosses by other companies at the moment, they dont seem to bother me. By chance i was chatting with a customer last week and she mentioned she loved avon colours but was sad that unfortunately she couldnt wear our lipsticks! I did not mention my own problem but she explained the exact same symptoms. Coincidence or is this common please? What are my chances of this stopping so i can start wearing our colours again? Any help would be appreciated thanks Emma.
Hi Ladies I have used this for some months as a daily moisuriser. I love the results and have had a lot of compliments. I can not find any info on directrions though. Should i be using a serum first, or another product afterwards? Please advise, a customer asked me the same too and would love to promote this fantastic product more confidently. Thanks
