The wonderful people at FingerPaints sent me their new Spring Collection to review! Let's jump right in!
|Finger Paints Did You Ast-her Out?|
Did you Ast-her Out is an in-your-face-but-not-in-a-bitchy-way pink jelly. For a jelly formula, it really is unbelievable. This is three coats, with no top coat or base coat, and it still looks perfect!
|two nails have the Barry M, two have the OPI|
Doesn't it look great with the black crackle on top???
|FingerPaints Chrysanthe-Mum's the Word|
Chrysanthe-mum's the Word is a beautiful lime green. Think budding spring flowers, not Shrek. The first coat went on streaky, but the second coat plus a layer of SV (Seche Vite) leveled it out.
I really love these as a base for the crackle!!!
Alright, I know, enough with the crackle already! I just had so much fun comparing the two brands!
If you want to know which crackle polish was which, click here.
Carnation Creation is actually teal, not pink! I heard from Scandalous Ange that this color stains without the appropriate basecoat, *after* I put on the first coat! I put the second coat on, ran outside, took one pic, hoped for the best, and ran back in. I survived with very minimal staining, thank goodness! I will definitely take the time to double up on basecoat because this color is to cool to pass up!
Aren't you Glad-iolous is a ONE COATER. A PASTEL ONE COATER. Magic. This is going to be my go base color for spring inspiried konads!
Heavenly Hydrangeas has the most perfect formula. I used one coat of base coat and two coats of polish. It practically applied itself, and was so shiny there was no need for SV!
OVERALL: I am ecstatic that FP released a spring collection in something besides pastels! I think Zoya did an awesome job with the pastels, I am glad they did them, but after last spring I was sick of each and ever collection looking exactly the same! I was convinced I would not like the orange, but its really growing on me! I included the pic below again to show you the super cute rings. I am shamefully embarrassed to show "full hand" pics because my fingers grow bent. (All that taking care of my cuticles, but I could never be a hand model!)
There is honestly not a single color I would tell you to skip. I am already planning on being at Sally's on March first to pick up a set for my favorite UK blogger!
