Finger Paints: Going Blue for Spring 2010

Finger Paints Spring Collection

Product: Finger Paints Spring Collection, Nail Lacquer .5 oz
Price: $4.99/ea
Steph's Rating: 3.8 Kisses
Buy it: Sally Beauty
Big 3 Free: Yes!

After the glass fleck goodness from the winter release, A Flurry of Holiday Color, I've been anxiously waiting to see what's next from Finger Paints. This Spring, the Heavenly Miracles collection pays tribute to one of my favorite colors!

This blue inspired release consists of four new polishes, two of which are stock colors in Finger Paints' core line. For the most part, I didn't have any application issues and all my swatches were used with two or three coats max.

Let's start with the two standard colors from Finger Paints.

Finger Paints Add and Abstract

Add & Abstract - a carribean or sky blue with bright teal shimmer. It's a softer, yet cooler version of Rimmel's Marine Blue

Finger Paints Artistic Azure Nail Poilish

Fingerpaints Artistic Azure Mattified

Artistic Azure is a classic Finger Paints blue from their color line.  It's a medium, bright blue loaded with shimmer that has a metallic feel to it. Not necessary a full blown metallic like you're thinking, the glow and radiating color gives off that effect. Very awesome.  

Finger Paints Oh my Stars Nail Polish

Oh My Stars is a sheer silver glitter in a clear base. The glitter is very fine, not rough or chunky and covers surprisingly well in three coats. Oh My Stars also works great for layering (see example below).

Finger Paints Dream a little Dream nail polish

Finger Paints Spring 2010 Collection

Dream a Little Dream is a light blue with a pearly metallic finish. The swipe lines are slightly visible, but not too bad for a metallic. You can always cover up with a topper like Oh my Stars.

Finger Paints Blissfully Blue Nail Polish

Blissfully Blue is a baby blue pastel creme. I'm crazy about this shade; it's perfect in every way. Compared to other colors, Blissfully Blue is bluer than the milky whiteness pastels are known for. How's the application? Amazing, smooth like butter with no streaking! 

Finger Paints Floatin on a Cloud Nail Polish

Floatin' On a Cloud, best used for layering, is a sheer iridescent glitter. This looks great over pastel and darker colors.

Check out one more swatch below.

Finger Paints Blue Pastel

I really love this combo! Just add some polka dots and you have a cute winter wonderland scene for the holidays.

Overall, good collection! Maybe not must haves, but a nice change of pace for Spring. Blissfully Blue was the star attraction in my eyes.  I just don't own enough pastel blues in my stash and this one is really spectacular - about perfect!

I know I've said this a hundred times, but where is the Finger Paints love? What are your favorites from the collection? Have a wonderful night!

Thanks for the nice swatches! I actually only feel myself pulling towards Floating on a Cloud, which is weird, because all of these are nice and I love blue. But Floating on a Cloud is the only one I want. hm.

Thanks for the great photos! The BB photo is exactly what I was hoping. I picked up Blissfully Blue, Oh My Stars and Floatin' On a Cloud over the weekend. Now I can't wait to update my mani!

I loved the first 3. Did not like Blissfully blue at all, when I saw it it reminded me the color of my tooth paste (sorry). Then again certain blues, even if I love them are hard to match my skin tone. I normally lean towards colors like Mixed Media Maroon. Love your review and photo's! Just Awesome!!!

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.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

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

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.
