Finger Paints: Bright and Merry - Swatches

The new holiday Finger Paints collection!!! Here are swatches for you! You can enlarge the collage to check out the colors, they're fantastic. From left to right: Winter Sky, Drummer Boy, Frosty Night, Comet's Collar, Santa Kisses, Yule Be Merry.  The non-glitters were opaque in 2 coats and there was no application problem. I would say my favorite is Yule Be Merry. I was surprised because usually I don't like the red tones but wowsa, it's pretty! It is a perfect raspberry/cranberry shade and it has great shimmer in it so it looks a tad pearly. Comet's Collar is unique too, not only is it a green shimmer but if you look closely you can see small shimmer of yellow/orange in it, looks great on the nail. Drummer Boy is a really pretty medium blue shimmer that I added the blue glitter over (all the glitters are in a clear base). I liked the blue glitter on the blue, it looked very blingy, the light catches is great. The only thing I would recommend with Winter Sky is to use two coats of a base so your nails don't get stained, but that's just smart with any blue polish.  I layered the red and silver glitters over Comet's Collar to show contrast. Frosty Night didn't show up that well but you could see the shine from the glitter so that made me happy. It was kind of nice not to see the glitter pieces but still have the benefits of the shine :) The red glitter, Santa Kiss (how cute is that name), is the perfect shade of holly red and will be great as a layering polish to jazz up a simple holiday mani.
The collection is available in November 2011 at Sally's Beauty and online. They retail for $4.99ea.

  1. Her nails are increasingly beautiful. Parabens.

  2. I really like the Yule Be Merry and I am not a red person. Maybe my color tastes are changing. Comet's Collar looks a little like WNW Jungle Fever. Are the undertones black or silver? It was a little hard to tell in your pictures but I think I am seeing mostly silver.

  3. Cute colors!!
    My favorite is drummer boy!

  4. Price is right. I have so many polishes however, I don't see anything really unique here that I need to add to my stash. I do really like your swatch of Yule Be Merry...and I am a Red person - you would think I have every red possible since I have collected since the late 80's. I still meet many that I don't have and really need.
