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 #7- Wet n Wild Megalast Disturbia

 

Let me start off by saying that I love this color!  It’s a color I’ve been wanting to wear for awhile, but I kept holding off.  Blog reader Sandy also asked me to swatch this color, so that gave me a great reason to wear it!

As you know from my other posts about this Megalast line, I love the polish, formula and brush, and it was no different with this bottle.  Disturbia is a deep deep purple with a hint of purple specks.  The specks are more noticeable in the bottle and on the brush than they are on the nail, but in the right light there’s a hint of shimmer.  In the pictures I’m wearing two coats and Sinful Colors top coat.

I decided to try some nail art again this week.  Using Sinful Colors Casablanca, I painted a bow on each thumb nail, and did dots on the other nails.  Casablanca was found on the Suit Up with Haute displays.  If any of your Walgreens have the big bin of Sinful Colors, you might be able to find it if you dig around.  I love Casablanca as a nail art polish because of how thick it is.  I did some stamping with it before I started my blog and it worked and looked amazing!  I do need to practice my “bow making”, but for the first time I think they look pretty good!

Color(s) Used: Wet n Wild Megalast – Disturbia, Sinful Colors – Casablanca

Nail Art: Bows and dots

Recommendation: I love the Megalast line, so I’d recommend it as an inexpensive drugstore polish option.  If you don’t like the flat, rounded brush, then you won’t like the brushes.  Two coats and you’re good to go!
