FingerPaints Summer 2011

    Good afternoon, Dear Reader!

    I have swatches of FingerPaints Peace, Love and Summer collection for you today, which Sally Beauty Supply sent me to review.  Overall, it a great collection, but that's about the only generalization I can make, so I'll get on with showing you pictures and tell you about the polishes.

    All You Need Is Color is a gorgeous teal glitter, which I wore after swatching yesterday.  It's comfortably thin to apply and opaque in two coats.  This is with one coat of top coat, which smoothed it out surprisingly well.

    Give Pink A Chance isn't really giving pink a chance at all - it's more of a bright coral creme.  It's a very good consistency and was easy to control.  I used two coats here, one would probably be fine as a base for something else.

    Groovy Green is a beautiful spring green shimmer.  The polish is somewhat thick and very well pigmented, so the first pictures I took of it looked strange.  I'm wearing it today, so I took a new picture with top coat.

    Outta Sight Orange is pretty much what I wanted the Sephora Cheetah orange to be.

    Psychedelic Sunshine is super sparkly fine glitter in a yellow jelly base.  It's very thick, and applying it was a bit more challenging than the others.  I tried it on the day it arrived when Chanel Mimosa didn't wow me, and I also have a swatch of two coats of Psychedelic Sunshine alone.

    Here's one coat over Mimosa.  Looks like the light in the picture below was different.

    The last one is Peaceful Purple, a really nice purple glitter.  This one was thinner, like the teal, and easy to apply.  Here's two coats of it.

    As usual, I'm thrilled with a seasonal collection from FingerPaints.  Be on the lookout for these at Sally Beauty Supply soon.

    That's the update for today, Dear Reader.  I'm told yesterday's post and comments will return - there have been some Blogger troubles and it keeps disappearing and reappearing, but I can't do a single thing about it either way.  Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
