Finger Paints Easely Entertained, Wicked Glitter

Finger Paints Easel-y Entertained

Finger Paints Blue Glitter Nail Polish

Have you guys checked out Finger Paints lately? If you haven't heard, Finger Paints recently revamped their core line at Sally Beauty and upgraded up to 40 new pretties. Today I have two colors to share, Easel-y Entertained and Wicked Glitter.

I have a love-hate-love relationship with Easel-y Entertained. Looking at the bottle, she had so much potential... The thought came across my mind - maybe, possibly, praying... Essie Starry Starry Night? Nope. The formula came up short, more so consistency wise.

Easel-y Entertained (shown  above) - a blue glitter and silver micro glitter in a matching sheer base. It's not a jelly, the base is more of a sheer tinting that dries semi gritty. Even know the base is sheer, the color is very buildable. My only suggestion - if the blue glitter was larger and glass fleck like this would easily be a hit.   

Finger Paints Wicked Glitter

Finger Paints Multi Color Glitter

Wicked Glitter is a multi colored glitter in a clear base. It looks similar to Sally Hansen's Rockstar Pink, but maybe with more silver tones? Try layering over an opaque silver foil (Trixie, Celeb City, Shine) for a wicked combo.

Here's a group picture of my haul. Check out my Photo Gallery in a few days for swatches.

Easel-y Entertained is standard shade and Wicked Glitter is limited edition. Sally Beauty is running a special right now on Finger Paints for $3.99/ea. Have you picked up any new colors? Have a fabulous weekend!

The glitter is just too much... I am really into the solid color glitters but that is just too much color on too little space!

I've never tried Finger Paints polish before. They seem to put out lots of difference colours. There's a Sally Beauty near me, so I'll probably check them out. How is the wear on Finger Paints, by the way?

Kinda like 'Easel-y'... Is that last one from your haul 'Tough Art to Follow'?

I wonder if Easel-y Entertained would be better over a creme base of a navy blue or something. I purchased this but haven't used it yet. If it's that gritty, I'll probably just take it back. Thanks for the swatch!

Wearing Easel-y Entertained today. PITA to apply. You're right about the consistency, thick and goopy. I had to use 4+ coats without a base color to get it opaque and am still disappointed with the outcome. I expected to be able to look into the polish, after 4 coats and a clear base it should have had depth but doesn't really. Don't forget to mention it definitely has a purple cast. And I'm NOT looking forward to taking it off... lol

Having said all that - it looks okay!

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 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.
