FingerPaints Limited Edition Holiday Sets – Patent Leather Manicure and Holiday Glitz

Ah, FingerPaints, how I love thee!  You are a fabulous formula at a fantastic price, it is a shame more people don’t know how wonderful you are!  I hope your limited editon holiday kits are given to many beauty lovers who have yet to discover your brand!

FingerPaints Patent Leather Mani Kit

The FingerPaints Limited Edition Patent Leather Manicure Kit contains two polishes – Patent Red and Patent Black – plus a shiny top coat.  These polishes can be used to create a Louboutinesque manuicure… mine turned out more “funky french” since I didn’t have much free edge to paint red underneath!

If you don’t own a one coat black yet, then you need this kit because Patent Black is a OCW!

FingerPaints Holiday Glitz

The FingerPaints Limited Edition Holiday Glitz Kit contains 3 polishes – Glitz & Glam, Tangled in Tinsel, and Sparkle with Me.  Glitz & Glam is a standard silver foil.  Tangled in Tinsel is a rainbow glitterbomb with a mixture of multicolored hex glitter and small micro glitter.  Sparkle with Me is a fun mix of matte white hex glitter, white micro glitter and silver holographic micro glitter).  I applied a matte topcoat when I wore all three together for a fun twist!

These kits are available now at Sally Beauty where they retail for $12.99 (Beauty Club Price $12.49).  They would make wonderful gifts for someone… or for yourself!

China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You

As you may have noticed, my new job doesn’t give me as much time to swatch as my old one.  The China Glaze All Aboard collection arrived a little late, but I could not wait to share this polish with you for ONE MORE SECOND!

You won’t be surprised to hear that Choo-Choo-Choose You is already on my updated Top 20 List!

I’ve swatched a few other polishes from the China Glaze All Aboard collection, but I still need to swatch the rest.  Same for the China Glaze Twinkle collection!  Are there any you are dying to see?

A England Elizabeth & Mary Collection

Press Sample

A England Elizabeth & Mary Collection

A England is a brand that I have always wanted to own more of, so when Nail Polish Canada offered to send me their new Elizabeth & Mary collection, I jumped at the chance! 

A England Virgin Queen

Virgin Queen is a stunning holographic polish that shifts from platinum to pewter.  This one is a stunner and I can see it becoming an instant classic! The holo is subtle, but oh so pretty… Even if your day job is strict about the types of polish you wear, you could pull this off because indoors is appears as a just a pretty shimmery polish, but outside in the sun and the rainbows dance across your nails, it’s magical!    In fact, I love it so much I’ve already added it to my Top 20 List!

A England Fotheringhay

Fotheringhay is a nail polish fanatics dream… a funky green holographic polish!  A mossy green with gold and holographic shimmer that can look much lighter in certain lights.  Perfect, easy to apply formula.  What more could a polish lover ask for?

A England Crown of Thistles

Crown of Thistle is a ANOTHER stunning holographic polish… Words just can’t describe how much I love this polish! The purple shade is absolutely divine and looks different in every light!

A England Gloriana

Gloriana is a burnt-orange red shimmer with gold flakes.  My pictures don’t do this one justice!

A England Queen of Scots

Queen of Scots is a wonderful blue shimmer.  This one doesn’t have extra glitter or shimmer in it because frankly, it doesn’t need it!  Amazingly pigmented, you can almost get way with just one coat!  I can’t wait to use this one for nail art, it would be fabulous for stamping!

The formula on each and every one of this polishes was amazing.  I am totally lemming ALL OF THE SHADES I missed when A England stopped shipping to the United States.  Now that I know I can pick them up from Nail Polish Canada, I don’t think my bank account will be safe!  You can pick up the entire Elizabeth & Mary collection for $54.00, which also qualifies you for FREE SHIPPING!  Can’t beat that!

Now excuse me while I go plan my order…
