Mani #8-Finger Paints Flip Flop Fuchsia & Fun-Fetti

 

I’ve got a bit of updating to do on my stash pages.  The two colors I’m wearing right now aren’t a part of it!  One color I picked up at the last Sally’s extra 50% off clearance sale.  The other I got from the blog sale that I posted about. I kept going back to look at it and knew that, despite trying not to buy, I needed it.  I’m so glad that I decided to get it because I love it!  I’ll be blogging about what else I got in the blog sale.  It was my first ever nail mail as well.

My base color is Finger Paints Flip Flop Fuchsia.  This color is from Finger Paints’ Summer in the City collection.  I’ve always associated fuchsia as more of a purple color with just a bit of pink, but this is about as pink as you can get.  It fits in with those bright/hot pinks for the summer.  The formula was thick, and if you were careful enough, could get decent coverage in one coat.  I always do at least two coats.  I had some major pooling around the cuticle from this polish.  This polish also dries to a nice shine.

Finger Paints Fun-Fetti is an awesome top coat multi-colored glitter.  It’s comprised of small hex glitters and small circular glitters. It’s kind of like a glitter party in a bottle.  Fun-Fetti was a limited edition polish available at Sally’s Beauty Supply.  I just did one coat on each nail.

I asked for some help from my Twitter followers about what color to wear under Fun-Fetti and pink was one of the suggestions.  I was just going to go for boring white!  I’m so glad that I chose a pink and I love how it looks.  I want to see how Fun-Fetti looks over some other colors as well, so expect to see it back at some point.  I used Sinful Colors top coat.

Color(s) Used: Finger Paints – Flip Flop Fuchsia & Fun-Fetti

Nail Art: Glitter

Recommendation:  I would go either way with the Flip Flop Fuchsia.  You can probably find another pink like it, since this was part of a summer collection.  It might work well with stamping though.  That’s something that I plan on trying.  Fun-Fetti is no longer available in stores, but there are some other glitters out there that look similar. There’s a good dupe comparison on this blog.

Mani #1

New to posting my weekly manicure, but I’m sure I’ll figure this out with time.  I’ve read enough nail polish blogs to learn a bit about taking photographs.

This weeks mani is done with Finger Paints Choco Mint and Wet n Wild Fast Dry Light with Caution.  I love mint shades and have a number of them that I need to try to compare.   This is the first time I’ve used Finger Paints, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

The Finger Paints went on well.  The first coat was a little streaky, but it evened out with the second coat.  I really like how this applied to the nail

I’m just getting into the glitter crazy, and when I saw the Fast Dry Sparks & Stripes LE collection, I picked up one of each color.  Light with Caution has hex glitter in a light to pale pink shade, along with some smaller glitters in the same light to pale pink and also in a blue to green.
