Finger Paints: Limited Edition Glitters

Finger Paints Wicked Glitter over Silver

Finger Paints LE Glitters

In addition to the new permanent colors at Sally Beauty, Finger Paints introduces a small two piece display of limited edition glitters. Last week I showed you a preview of Wicked Glitter by itself, and today I'm using an opaque silver foil as my base (pictured above).

The silver layered underneath really brings out the "Mad as a Hatter" in Wicked Glitter, as far as the smokey silver base in OPI's version, which is exactly what I was going for. Wicked Glitter has much more pink/multi, whereas Mad as a Hatter has soft pastel-y glitter.

Check out Sapphire Shimmer.

Sapphire Shimmer, best used as a topper, is a sheer blue tint with silver holographic glitter. Only one problem, the base color is extremely sheer and coverage is not very buildable on its own. Off to my closet, searching for a perfect blue to layer with Sapphire Shimmer. I came up with Sally Hansen's In-a-Blink Blue. How stellar is this combo, love it?!

I've heard Wicked Glitter and Sapphire Shimmer is rumored to be look-a-likes to OPI's Alice and Wonderland glitters; just to clarify, both brands are very different. 

What do you think Finger Paints limited edition glitters? Did anyone pick up these up?

We picked up both of these on our last trip to Sally. S thought these would be dupes for the OPIs. I was not convinced. Like you said, they were not. They are quite different. I am really liking the Sapphire Shimmer combo. It is absolutely stunning. *melts from the amazingness*

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,

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.
