This year, 2014, is Avon's 100th Birthday Year. That's a big birthday, and it calls for a celebration. And you know what celebrations need? Sprinkles. Specifically, calorie-free: Avon Sprinkle Nails in Purple Confetti over a sweet base of Avon Nailwear Pro+Nail Enamel in Luxe Lavender. Here's the how-to, and the scoop on how you can score one of 10 special Avon Centennial Beauty Blogger Boxes!
avon sprinkle nails: the steps
1. Open a pot of Avon Sprinkle Nails in Purple Confetti ($6.99 at avon.ca) and set it aside because if you try to do it after your colour coats, you’re gonna mess up your wet polish. I know this from experience.
2. Paint on a coat of Avon Nailwear Pro+Nail Enamel in Luxe Lavender ($6.99 at avon.ca).
3. Paint on second coat of Luxe Lavender, but leave your ring finger until last.
4. Now paint a second coat of Avon Nailwear Pro+Nail Enamel in Luxe Lavender on your ring finger, then stick it right into the uncovered pot of Purple Confetti nail-decoration beads.
5. Use your nicely rounded cuticle pusher thing to lightly smush the sprinkles down onto the polish coat. Don’t push too hard – you just want to even it out.
6. Marvel at your cupcake-y sprinkle-y nail polish job.
7. Clean up using a damp cotton pad. Swipe it around on your desk and clean up all the stray sprinkle beads – it works like a charm.
8. Marvel some more at your cupcake-y sprinkle-y nail job.
