FingerPaints Spring 2013 Rock My World Collection Swatches and Review: Rock Hard Lilac and Stone Cold Pewter

FingerPaints Rock Hard Lilac (2 coats, no topcoat)

FingerPaints Stone Cold Pewter (2 coats, no topcoat)

FingerPaints recently completely revamped their line, including a new formula. I've tried several, and I really like them. When I first saw the Rock My World Collection, I thought they were normal metallic polishes and didn't think much of them. Then I heard they were textured, so I went right out and picked a couple up to show. I really think FingerPaints needs to start labeling the finishes on their polishes because you never know if you're going to get a matte or a textured polish. Anyway, I think this is what China Glaze meant to do with their Crinkled Chrome collection, but fell flat. These are definitely textured and feel a bit grainy which may bother some. Pretty much nothing bothers me so I didn't have a problem. Rock Hard Lilac is not really a lilac, but more of a periwinkle blue. In fact, I could not pick up much purple from this at all. Stone Cold Pewter is a silver/grey metallic. If something is called pewter, I will likely pick it up, and this did not disappoint. These are very pigmented, and I would recommend using as few coats as possible to get the most textured effect. Love these! You can find them at your local Sally Beauty Supply for around $4.29 or so.
