Finger Paints: Going Blue for Spring 2010
|Product: Finger Paints Spring Collection, Nail Lacquer .5 oz|

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