Check it out! Ten brand new shades in the FingerPaints line-up will join the core line next month! Some are full-coverage and some are glitters toppers - check out my thoughts after the cut!
I've taken a lot of pictures of these polishes. You'll notice four photos for each color - sunlight, shade, indoors with natural light and indoors with flash (in that order, as if you are reading a book). I've done this for several reasons. I want to provide a wide variety of lighting options for you to see how the polish looks.
You Can Crayon My Shoulder is definitely my favorite of this bunch! It's a red jelly base with shimmery glitters all through it. I used two coats for opaqueness. No issues at all, formula was great.
Daubigny's Garden is just uh-mazing! In the bottle it's green and blue and yellow - and over a traditional base, it just leans that way... but over a lighter base, such as a creamy color, it's pink and purple! I'm just a little bit obsessed with the way this polish looks. There's 3 with the cream base, and one with a blue base.
Th-Ink Outside The Box is black and white glitter heaven! I have a soft spot for black and white glitters, and I can't get enough of them! I chose to showcase this one over a teal color. I think it looks great! This is one coat of Th-Ink Outside The Box. It's not packed with glitter, but there is a good payoff for a topper.
Still Life Strawberry is a lovely deep pink glitter. Not meant to be full-coverage, this will go well over a variety of bases! I chose a navy blue base, and I think it helps the glitters stand-out. Pictured is one easy coat over the blue base. I didn't have to dab and place, either.
Sterling Sculpture is pretty much just a silver version of Still Life Strawberry haha It is a little thicker on the glitter, tho. Same formula, no dab and place. I like this one over darker colors mostly. I have it over a deep dusty teal!
You've Got To Be Kitsch-ing me is a hilarious name for this polish! haha I chose to layer this multi-colored glitter up and try it on its own. This is 3 coats for the glitter. You can still see VNL pretty regularly thru the glitter, but I kind of like it! Next time, I will definitely use a base. The formula was good. I had no issues with it - and that's saying something with 3 coats of glitter!
Gogh With The Flow just looks neat! It kind of reminds me of an older China Glaze... Skyscraper maybe? This one is a lovely packed solid purple glitter, opaque in 2 coats. There's itty bitty glitters that just look so amazing under all lighting! The formula on this one was a bit on the thin side, but it was easy to manage.
Color Me Abstract is one of the polishes that I just can't get into. The formula is thin, and I just don't care for the shade. Shown is 2 coats, and I could have benefited from a third it looks like, but I wasn't really sure of that until I was out in the sun. It wasn't hard to manage the formula, but you can just tell in some spots that it's thinner than the rest.
Violaceous Vase is a very different polish. I don't think I own anything quite like it! The base is a shimmery pastel purple, and then there's darker purple glitter. It builds up quite nicely, and looks great with 3 coats! The formula is a tad on the thin side for the base, but like I mentioned, it builds up nicely to an amazing looking finish! There is a slight blue shift in just the right light at the right angle :)
Such a Fake is the last new polish for me to show you - and by some fluke of my camera and the sun, this polish was not having any outside photos! haha It's a shimmery neutral base with glitter (looks like pink and green maybe?) and I tried to build it up on its own, but it didn't play as well as You've Got To Be Kitsch-ing Me. So I put it over a yellow base and said to heck with it! You can totally see the shimmer!
What do you guys think? Do you think you'll pick any of these up? They are to be released in February - so keep your eyes out if you want them. FingerPaints polishes are available for Sally's Beauty Supply.
