Finger Paints – My Best Self Portrait

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure features a “neutral with a kick” from the Finger Paints Hard As Steel Strengthening Nail Color line. I hadn’t heard of this particular Finger Paints line, but I don’t get to Sally’s very often and Finger Paints are exclusive to them. So I think this is a relatively new nail polish.

Finger Paints – My Best Self Portrait
Finger Paints My Best Self Portrait is a nude base with pink shimmer. I think this would be a great neutral for the office, but if you’re in a boring meeting, you will have the pretty pink shimmer to distract you. In some lighting this almost takes on a mauve appearance (see my shade photos below), but usually it’s just a pretty nude. Formula was on the thick side, which I prefer. This dries very shiny on it’s own but I did add topcoat as usual. I used 2 easy peasy coats and topcoat for my manicure today.

Finger Paints My Best Self Portrait, 2 coats plus topcoat.
Outside in the sun…
Outside in the shade. You will see here it takes on an almost mauve hue with all that pink shimmer…

Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.

  1. Gorgeous nails, polish, and pictures! I love the subtle shimmer. Would you know how this compares to Essie Demure Vixen? Thanks for sharing!


  2. Hi Pam. Thanks for the compliments! I don't have that Essie, so I'm not sure. Judging by online photos, the Essie may be a bit darker. A lot of bloggers say Demure Vixen is a mauvey color, and while this Finger Paints would look mauve in certain lighting, I would definitely say it was nude (with that pink shimmer) most of the time. Thanks for stopping by!!
