Coming Soon: Avon Going Green for Summer

Avon Jade and Olive Green

Avon is embracing the ever so popular mint green trend this Summer with two new colors to the Nailwear Pro line. Jade, a green based (not blue, holla!) mint creme and Olive Green, a dusty green (think JITB) creme. Check out the swatches now!

Both Jade and Olive Green will be available online sometime in June.New Scented Nail Polish

Also new in June, Color Trend Ice Sheer Nail Enamels available in three colors: (L-R) Luscious Lemon, Delicious Berry and Refreshing Pear. Once dried each shade has a fruitalicious scent.

These are now available with campaign 13 and online starting in June.  If you love green, don't miss out on Jade and Olive Green, both are definite keepers!

EDIT: Since it may be a while before I get to swatch these, here's a quick bottle picture above. Ladies, these are definitely worth picking up! Jade is a green based mint and Olive Green is a grey based green. If you're thinking Rescue Beauty Lounge Orbis Non Sufficit, you've guessed right! They're practically twins!

My Avon lady already had Campaign 13 out, so I ordered Jade. Don't know I should get Olive Green too, lol. Maybe I'll wait for your swatches :)

Thanks for the heads up, Steph! I'm a huge green-polish fan, so this is right up my alley. And how convenient: there's a woman at work who sells Avon. I'll have to place my order when it's available.

I have all these. Aren't they great?! Did you see the demo book for capn 15? 4 new pastel cremes. I love when they are @ the demo price. Do you have blue flare or mink vison, they actually have a vamp too. darker than tweed.

Hi Christi,
Oooh, are they pastel? It was hard to tell by the promo pictures, but yes saw those along with new Speed Dry colors for summer! I'm definitely curious about Urban Gray!

Hi Jenni,
I can vouch for Avon's Jade, it's really gorgeous!! About two shades deeper than OPI's Damone Roberts 1968

Is Jade similar to MAC Peppermint Patti? It looks like it from the bottle pic.

Hi Jennifer,
No, it's much different. Avon's Jade has a lot more depth (as far as color) and Peppermint Patti is more pastel.

Hi, I just want to know that is Jade similar to china glaze's re-freshment? And I have not ordered from a long time, but are their nail polishes pricey?

Steph said on Jun 14th, 2010 4:39 pm
Hi Kirn,
No, it's not. Refresh-mint is much more pale and pastel. The closest to Avon's Jade I have (not exact dupes) is OPI DR1968 http://www.stephscloset.com/blog/gallery/id/2992/damone-roberts-1968-nail-polish

Avon's Nail Polishes are pretty reasonable. Regularly priced at $5.00, but you can find them on sale around $2.99/ea!

I was waiting for these shades to be available also here in Italy when two greens with different names showed up on the catalogue, I wonder if they are the same shades... weird!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

Shelly said, on Aug 19th, 2012 3:43 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Jill said, on Aug 8th, 2012 5:47 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

thanks :)

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on amazon.com.

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

Debra said, on May 26th, 2012 4:59 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
