Coming Soon to your Sally's Beauty Store is Finger Paints newest Holiday Collection and I'm super excited to show you guys a preview of this fantastic Winter release!

In the past I haven't mentioned Finger Paints that often, but deep down I'm a huge fan and I don't think the brand gets enough credit! Sure, maybe some of the core line colors aren't as unique BUT just when you thought you fell out of love, they bring you back with a really spectacular collection. *heart flutters*

Let's break it down. In this release, we have mostly shimmers - but not really? I'd like to call these shimmer flecks, Finger Paints Style. And they're absolutely gorgeous when light hits the glass like particles.

For the most part, all polishes are three coaters with the exception of a couple. Good application and formula.

Check em' out!

Finger Paints Snowman's Scarf nail polish 

Finger Paints Holiday 09 Polish Collection

Snowman's Scarf is a red with gold fine shimmer that's a bit orange toned compared to Candy Cane Shimmer.

Finger Paints Evergreen Dream Nail Polish

Finger Paints Holiday 09 Nail Polish Collection

Yes, Yes, Yes a Green! And boy is Evergreen Dream a stunner. Think shimmer version of China Glaze's Emerald Sparkle. A Definite must have for my green lovers. Oh, and my swatch is with two coats! Good pigmentation.

Finger Paints Icy Iris Nail Polish

Finger Paints Holiday 09 Collection

Icy Ivy is a gorgeous, deep purple with pink and purple flecks. Sometimes it's really hard distinguishing the different colored shimmers in each shade.

Finger Paints Candy Cane Shimmer

Finger Paints Holiday 09 Collection 

Candy Cane Shimmer is a red with silver and pink shimmer that has a foil like appeal.

Finger Paints Sparkling Snow Nai Polish

Finger Paints Holiday 09 Collection

Sparkling Snow is a semi sheer silver foil, not as opaque as most foil polishes. 

Finger Paints Decked with Dazzle Nail Polish

Finger Paints Holiday 09 Collection

Decked with Dazzle is another foil like, a pink with silver, red and purple shimmer.

All in All, one of the best holiday collections I've seen this Fall. Perfect for shimmer and glitter lovers that hate the hassle of glitter removal. Affordable and easily available at Sally's Beauty Stores.

What would I change? Maybe to replace the red, Snowman's Scarf with a Gold blinger and this would easily be a five star collection in my book.

Who loves Finger Paints? What do you guys think of this Collection? Have a great Night!

I got Snowman's Scarf and Evergreen Dream on the way. These look sensational! I agree that it does need a gold and it would be the perfect christmas collex!

I might just have to go against my glitter ban and get Snowman's Scarf. It's beautiful!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
