Hey everyone! Today I went way back to 2011!! This was a time before a lot of indie polish brands started popping up and Finger Paints wowed the MakeupAlley Nail Board with their Special Effects Collection. This was a collection of 5 flakie toppers. You’ll see in my pictures my bottle looks like the base has turned yellow, but as far as I can remember, it was yellow when I bought it, all 5 of them were. It doesn’t hurt anything, as long as you use it over a darker color.
In 2014 Finger Paints came out with another flakie topper collection called the Kaleidoscope Collection. That also had 5 polishes and they were in a clear base. I do have those also, but they just never excited me the way this first collection did. I am not affiliated with Finger Paints.
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.
Hi everyone! Today I have a pretty manicure to share with you. It’s Chinese New Year and the building I live in is heavily Asian, so we have a traditional Lion Dance and other things going on for the New Year. It’s always exciting to be a part of such traditions. So I did a red and gold manicure in honor of Chinese New Year. It’s the year of the Monkey this year.
Hi everyone! Today I have another Finger Paints nail polish that I just picked up from Sally Beauty’s BOGO free sale. This was also in a new display without any collection name that I noticed. This one is from the Endless Wear line. Looking online, this seems to be a two step process of nail color with base coat built in and a special topcoat that cures this nail polish with natural light rather than a UV or LED light. I don’t need my manicures to last a long time so I did not pick up the special topcoat, nor did I read about this polish until I was done painting my nails, so I just used my regular base coat and topcoat as I normally would. I don’t like not wearing base coat anyway, even if they say you don’t need to. I’m always worried about staining.
Hey everyone, I’m baaa-ack! Two posts in one day! Sally Beauty Supply has Finger Paints nail polish on sale this month (I think it goes for the whole month anyway) BOGO free! So I picked this beauty up from a new display. I didn’t see any collection name, but I may have just missed it. I just added a couple accent fingers to my earlier manicure of OPI Show Us Your Tips. If you missed that one, you can see it here.
