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 #5 – Reader’s Choice # 1

Thank you to everyone who voted in my first Reader’s Choice poll!  I tried not to check the results while the poll was open, but I couldn’t resist.   I did an unofficial reveal on Twitter last night after closing the poll.  The color with the most votes was Sinful Colors Ocean Side.  China Glaze Kinetic Candy wasn’t that far behind, so I’ll be doing a swatch of that soon. I did use Kinetic Candy for the dots on my nails.

Ocean Side is a harder to find, older color.  It’s number is 962, and all newer Sinful Colors are numbered in the 1000s.  You can pick it up in the Study in Style display.  This color seems to have gone quickly at the Walgreens around my area, so I’m glad I picked it up when I did (I picked it up with Leap Flog and Winterberry).

Ocean Side went on just like normal for Sinful Colors.  I love the formula used for these cremes, and in two coats it was opaque.  I usually don’t wear anymore than two coats of my main color.

I’m not really sure how to explain this color.  It’s a really different shade of blue.  I found that, depending what lighting I was in, the polish would look more green than blue .  When I was testing this color against another Sinful Colors blue, Ocean Side leaned more to the green side.  If you’re planning on stamping over this, keep that in mind.  It doesn’t look like any green would pull from this color, but it does, making the color more on the teal side.

I added three small dots along the edge of my nail in China Glaze Kinetic Candy.  I think I’m just going to start adding dots if I don’t do stamping or marbling.  I have no artistic talent to draw anything on my nails!  I don’t think I could even do basic lines.  I used the tip of a bobby pin to make the dots.

Onto the pictures.  My camera does not like blues, so I’m not sure how color accurate my photos can even get.  It was just a really crummy week for pictures.  I’m also going to try something new with my pictures and use a gallery.  Click on a picture to make it bigger and click the X or hit the Esc button to close.

Can you see how different this color looks between the indoor and outdoor shots?  The most accurate is the outdoor shot.   Regardless, I love this Ocean Side.  I think it’s my favorite of the blues I have from Sinful Colors.

Color(s) Used: Sinful Colors – Ocean Side, China Glaze Kinetic Candy

Nail Art: Dots

Recommendation: If you’re someone who loves to wear blues, then go out and grab this color!  I didn’t put a base coat on before application, so I’m hoping this blue doesn’t stain.  I’ve never had a problem with staining with the Sinful Colors line.  Availability will vary depending on your location.  Ocean Side can be found in the Study in Style display.  Remember that Sinful Colors go on sale next Sunday at Walgreens!
