Review & Swatches: Finger Paints Special Effects Nail Polish

Good afternoon everyone! If you missed my FB post yesterday, I told you all that I purchased the entire collection of Finger Paints Special Effects nail polish! I'm glad I got my hands on them early because I'm sure these will sell out quickly. So many swatches, let's get started!

I'm starting out with my most favorite and finishing off with my least from this collection.

Twisted 
2 Coats no Top Coat 
The diamond in the rough from this collection in my opinion! If I were to choose one from this collection, this baby is definitely it! :) A gorgeous combination of green, blue, gold, purple, red, and orange.



Asylum
2 Coats no Top Coat
Another beauty! IMO, it's a toned down version of Twisted. This one focuses more on red-orange and blurple. In some lighting/angles, yellow and green are visible.


Motley
2 Coats No Top Coat
This ones a bit tricky too! In some lighting, it reminds me of Sinful Colors Green Ocean. It's a beautiful combination of green and blurple. This makes my list of top 3 from this collection. :)


Flecked
2 Coats No Top Coat
Unlike the rest of the colors from this collection, this one pretty much stays the way they look on my nails. Regardless, it's a great color. A combination of bright green and aqua/turquoise.


Flashy
2 Coats No Top Coat
Lastly, we have Flashy. It's a combination of green, orange, and yellow. It's nice, but I have sooo many other polishes that are similar. If you own Essie Shine of the Times, Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, Andrea Fulerton Gemstone, and/or Nubar 2010, you might be able to skip this color. 

Overall: This is a fabulous collection and a winner all around in my book! Application was easy and the formula was perfect. Some flakies have the tendency to run thick, but not these babies! Smooth as a baby's bottom! ;)

I purchased these at Sally's Beauty Supple for $4.49 ea. If you see the color(s) you like, I urge you to pick them up immediately as this collection will sell out FAST! :)

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

Are flakies a staple in your nail polish stash? Which are your must have colors?! What are your thoughts?! I'd love to know down below!

  6. I am so glad I snatched these up! The girls at Sally's didn't have a clue what they were so I got a chance to show them and they got excited too!

  7. I am SO glad that someone finally decided to create a collection like this! I hated having to search for the flakie color I wanted, and then double checking that to be sure that it was really what I wanted, then being too unsure to buy anything at all. :( Thank you Finger Paints for doing them all! No more guessing what color flake it is for me!

  21. I work at Sally and I couldn't help but buy myself a bottle of twisted. I had to refrain from buying Flecked and Flashy. If you want some of these you better hurry. I'm not sure if we will get anymore in shipment and we just put these out on the first of this month!
