Right on the Nail ~ FingerPaints Nail Color Swatches and Reviews: Hollywood Decadence and Magritte's Masterpiece

Long time no see! I know, I've been really bad about blogging this week. My family came into town on Tuesday and I've been busy with Thanksgiving festivities. I didn't go out shopping today, but we did go see Mockingjay Part 2 this evening. I've been trying to be good about my polish purchases today with all of these Black Friday indie sales. So far I've only bought from Polish 'M (a few core colors and holiday polishes) and Ever After (my very first ones). Don't worry, I will be posting those as soon as I get them...some bottle pictures and swatches will likely show up on Instagram and Twitter as well ;) Tonight I have some random pictures of some FingerPaints I got from Sally's Beauty Supply the last couple months. Follow me after the break to learn more.

FingerPaints Hollywood Decadence (3 coats)

Hollywood Decadence reminds me some of the earlier indie polishes that came out a few years ago. It is a pastel glitter polish with tons of blue, pink and gold glitter in a milky white base. Oh, did I mention that this is a matte polish? I show it matte here, but I ended up putting on a topcoat because it was taking forever to that's something to consider if you are running short on time. The formula and application were fine even though it was really glitter dense. I used 3 coats for the pictures above, but if you have short nails, or use really thick coats, you may get away with 2. 

FingerPaints Magritte's Masterpiece (3 coats)

I'm quite oblivious to art so I had to look up who Magritte was. Apparently he was a Belgian artist known for his surrealism paintings. Once I saw some of the paintings I knew who he was. I'm not 100% sure what this beautiful cobalt blue jelly polish has to do with his paintings, but I guess it's a really nice tribute! The first coat was fairly sheer and patchy, but it built up well in 3 easy coats. 

These usually retail for $5.49, but you can often find them on sale with your Sally's card. Find out more about FingerPaints on their Facebook, Instragram, or Twitter pages.
