Finger Paints Winter Wishes

I'm a little late on this one, but here it is anyway. Finger Paints Winter Wishes was released with the 2010 Winter Dreams collection. This beauty is kind of hard to describe. The base is actually clear, I think, but it's so densely packed with glitter that you can't really tell. The glitter is silver, champagne, and gold. In my blurry pic, you can see some very sparse flecks of what looks like orange and green (enlarge to see the detail). This is two coats, with Revlon Colorstay Fast Dry topcoat on top.


Formula-wise...there's not much to like. Winter Wishes is a thick, gloopy mess. Have you ever used glitter glue? Well, WW has the exact same consistency. It's a shame, because the polish itself is gorgeous. Another negative is that it didn't shine at all, even with a coat of topcoat. You probably need two or three coats just to get it shiny, because the first coat just sinks into the grit. Oh yeah, it's gritty too.

With that said, I love this shade lol. The pictures don't do it justice. I couldn't stop staring at my nails when I had it on, which is one of the hallmarks of a great polish, in my opinion. I was lucky enough to get this on clearance at Sally Beauty a few weeks ago, for just $1.99. Check your local Sally and see if you can get a deal; they also had the rest of the Winter Dream collection, some holiday China Glazes, and a few Christmas Orlys.

Happy painting!

I've just become a follower. I've rediscovered nail polish and am becoming addicted to it. At this rate, I'll end up creating a blog myself, ;)

Thank you Chaos!

Marox, thank you for following! It is very addictive. I don't know if it's the colors or the fumes, but I got hooked fast. ;-)
