FingerPaints Sparkle Top Coat

    Good evening, Dear Reader!

    Tonight I tried out FingerPaints Sparkle Top Coat, which is one that I have no manufacturer information about, but it was on sale and looked cool when I made my recent Sally Beauty Supply trip, so I picked it up.  In the bottle, it's a sparkly translucent off white like the CND Effects, and I'd wager it's closest to their Raspberry Sparkle but I haven't compared.

    For the manicure, I used Illamasqua Base Coat, which I ran into half a bottle of when I was looking for the color I wanted to put under Sparkle Top Coat.  Before finding the one I was after, I ran into my mini of Lippmann Devil in a Blue Dress from the Party Like a Rock Star set, a navy blue jelly, and went with that.  I used two coats of Devil in a Blue dress, gave it a couple minutes to set, then added one coat of Sparkle Top Coat.  I finished it off with Tout de Suite to dry it, and it made for a really cool mani.  Pictures will make telling you what I like about it easier.  The light outside was dim, so the first picture is artificial light and the second is indirect sunlight.

    I included both because the different light shows different things.  The artificial light picture is the more accurate in terms of color and how the finish looks in general, but the second picture in natural light caught the slight duochrome effect Sparkle Top Coat has.  If you look near the cuticle at my thumb and index finger, you can see a greenish gold tinge, and that really shows just walking around.  The overall look of this manicure reminds me of the custom paint job on a my neighbor's sports car when I was 14 (which I recall clearly because they spelled his name wrong on the driver's door and he left it that way).

    For one coat, I think this is excellent.  I'd planned on two coats, but I like how it looks so much after one that I thought a second might take away from it and left it alone.  That's what I know about FingerPaints Sparkle Top Coat and all I have for you today, Dear Reader, so until next time, love and nail polish to you!
