FingerPaints Masquerade Affair Collection Swatch and Review

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have the FingerPaints Masquerade Affair Collection for you which is a limited edition collection that was released this month. This collection contains 4 rich and decadent shimmering polishes which remind me of Mardi Gras.

Queen For a Night is a deep blue shimmer filled with gold flake shimmer. The flakes popped the most in this polish and it is for sure my favorite of the collection. I used 2 coats for this mani. Such a gorgeous and complex color. It even (sort of) looks duochrome sometimes.

Dance Til Dawn is a rich purple shimmer filled with gold flake shimmer. This has a really warm shimmer that showed up more in the macro shot than the other pictures. I used 2 coats for this mani.

Masked Beauty is a gold foil filled with gold flake shimmer. You can see that the addition of the gold flakes here add a lot of dimension to the gold foil base. I used 2 coats for this mani and got great coverage. Also, do take care when you are applying this polish because the tiny foil flakes are a pain to clean up if they get on your cuticles/skin. And, as you can see, the foil finish really makes this polish different than the others in this collection (they all have pretty much identical formulas).

Ball Gown Glamour is a emerald green shimmer filled with gold flake shimmer. This is 2 easy coats. Such a vibrant and beautiful color and the flakes add a lot of depth.

Formula was pretty much identical across the board with these polishes (except Masked Beauty, which I mentioned was the oddball with its foil finish). The shimmery bases of the polishes make them quite opaque and they built up nicely in 2 coats. Overall, this is a wonderful collection of beautiful shades that can be worn year-round!

The FingerPaints Masquerade Affair Collection is exclusively available from Sally Beauty and is in stores and online now. It is a limited edition collection, so be sure to get them while they last! Thanks for looking everyone!
