My plan today was to check out Sally's for the new Orly collection, but instead I saw these guys from the Spring 2013 Finger Paints Wild About Spring Collection. The collection features three shimmer polishes and three flakies. These aren't iridescent like many flakies, but are instead just irregularly shaped reflective glitter.There was one other turquoise shade I didn't pick up. It seemed a bit dupey and didn't have the same shimmer as the other two non-flakie polishes. It was more of a frost.
The thing that grabbed me were these ridiculous jeweled rings shaped like bugs and animals! The rings are pretty substantial, and I doubt I would ever wear them on my hand, but I love them! They're pretty flamboyant. Maybe I'll make them into necklaces? I'm almost tempted to get the turquoise just for the crazy ring. Anyhow. On to swatches!
First is Finger Paints I Spy-der, a Coral pink polish with blue iridescent shimmer. Pink is not my fave color so while I don't have anything like it, it probably isn't incredibly unique. It was pretty, interesting, and warm enough of a pink to sway me though. Formula could have been better, this took four fairly thick coats and waiting in between to get opaque.
I got Finger Paints Itsy Bitsy Spider primarily because I have a sick obsession with trying (and failing) to recreate Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie, a polish I have never even seen in real life, let alone owned. This isn't a dupe, but it does allow to me to pretend. It's a dusty purple with aqua shimmer throughout, and it's super pretty. Love love love, even if it isn't Scrangie. This took three coats and was a bit finicky.
Okay, so maybe I should have done the last two swatches separately, but to be honest I hate glitter removal and I can be quite lazy. Oh well! Finger Paints Owlin' At The Moon (the only name I like in this collection) is on my pointer and ring. It features a single shade of bright green shard glitter. Finger Paints Are You Hoppy, on my middle and pinkie, is the same idea except it is a single shade of light purple. Also on my thumb is Fishin for Fun. Just cause I thought it'd be pretty over the pink.
Cute collection, I feel like Finger Paints is pretty underrated as a brand and wish they got more love.
