Well this post took a while! I went crazy with the Finger Paints BOGO, and picked up 8 of the new core shades for Finger Paints, available only at Sally Beauty stores. I think they've made some fun new additions! Textures, a holographic, and plenty of other lovely shades.
Finger Paints Hammered Terra Cotta is a copper texture with lots of gold and pink sparkle. I really do love this, but I wish there was something indicating that this was a texture! This is two coats
And with top coat! Lovely.
Oh, and I wanted to try something new, here is a Vine to show how freaking sparkly this thing is!
And a vine of this one, too!
Finger Paints Copy Cat is a mix of silver hex glitters in a base jam packed with golden shimmer. Three coats, here. I suspected this was close to some polishes we've seen recently....
Finger Paints Go Baroque is a mix of pink hex glitter in a golden shimmery base. This is along the same lines as Copy Cat, just with a different color glitter. Three coats. Again, it seemed familiar...
Here it is compared with Maybelline Gilded rose from the Brocade collection. For those who never were able to spot this collection, this is basically an exact dupe.
Finger Paints Palette of Perfection is a beautiful red and gold shimmer. I love a red polish, and this is stunning! The gold is super sparkly. Two coats.
Finger Paints Titian Tint a pale, rosy copper foil. I can't resist a foil, what can I say? This is two coats.
Finger Paints Surreal Sunset is a duochrome shimmer that shifts from burgundy to deep amber. I love shades like this! Such a chameleon, this is three coats. This is very reminiscent of an old favorite...
Compared with Orly Space Cadet, I'm a bit happy to report while very similar, not quite a dupe. Space Cadet's main difference is its base, which is a blue-green that gives the shade a purplish hue. Surreal Sunset, on the other hand has a a rusty brown base, which gives it a warmer tone. For those who missed out on Space Cadet and it's friend, this would be a pretty decent substitution.
Finger Paints Chromatic Creation is a somewhat weak silver linear holographic polish. I don't have a ton a holo in my collection, so I was excited to see a mainstream brand add one to its core collection! As far as the holo-ness, this is not super strong, but still visibly linear. It's comparable to some of the China Glaze Hologlaze collection.
Here is a comparison to show how it fares against some other fairly mainstream holos. Obviously more linear, compared to Hologram, from the disappointing Tronica collection. Side by side with Don't Be A Luna-tic, you can see it's about the same in terms of holo-ness. So if you weren't really impressed with those (I liked them just fine!), you might want to skip Chromatic Creation. Urban Outfitters Silver Holo, the one on my pinky, it just crazy. I added it mostly to show just how holo holo can get. Anyway, that was a lot of words, but overall I think this a is great addition to the line.
