New FingerPaints Core Colors for 2015

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have some new additions to the FingerPaints core line to share with you. This is a wonderful set of glittery polishes, both full coverage microglitters and toppers, that I was really impressed with overall. These will be released in February and since they are not limited edition, they should be easy to grab from your local Sally Beauty Supply.

Still Life Strawberry is a clear-based glitter topper full of large and small hot pink hexes. Formula on this one was excellent with a great glitter load. I was able to use just one coat (with a small bit of dabbing to fill in one or two spots) over OPI I Just Can't Cope-cabana for this swatch. As you can see, the glitter spread really evenly and I appreciate that about this glitter (and really, all of the glitter toppers in this collection are like this).

Th-ink Outside the Box is a clear-based glitter topper with black and white glitters including black bar glitters. Formula was really nice like Still Life Strawberry with good coverage. I used 1 coat over OPI Live.Love.Carnaval for this swatch. There are a lot of black and white glitter toppers out there, so you don't necessarily need this if you already have one you like. I will say though, this one (for me) had the perfect ratio of black bar glitters in it and a good formula to boot, so I say grab it if you are lacking on of these in your collection.

Daubigny's Garden is a clear-based glitter topper filled with iridescent hex glitters and translucent pink, purple, and black glitters. Another good formula on this one, though it was slightly thicker than the first two glitters. It spread easily though and this is one coat of the glitter over each of the base colors.  This is SUCH a cool polish and it gives you completely different looks over lighter or darker colors. This is for sure the star of the collection!

Sterling Sculpture is a clear-based glitter topper filled with large and small silver hexes. Formula was great and spread very easily with a good glitter loat. This is one coat over China Glaze Aquadelic. This is a relatively simple concept for a polish, but I actually do not have one like it in my collection. It is a very versatile polish for layering, and I was really smitten with the combo over the Tiffany Blue (which I remember in this amazing mani by The Posh Polish...I miss her!)

You Gotta Be Kitsch-ing Me is a clear-based glitter topper that is full of multicolored glitter that leans more pastel. Formula was very nice with great coverage and glitter spread. I showed it here with one coat over OPI Thanks a Windmillion. It is a dupe of Tangled in Tinsel from the LE Holiday Glitz mani kit (reviewed here), so if you didn't get it during the winter, you can grab it now!

You Can Crayon My Shoulder has a red jelly base filled with multiple sizes of red glitter. Formula was excellent on this one and it was completely opaque in 2 coats. This polish was hard to photograph, but it has a ton of sparkly depth and I really love it. The multiple sizes of glitter really make it special.

Gogh With the Flow is bluish-purple full coverage jelly/microglitter. This polish has a great formula and builds up easily in 2 coats. It is less jelly-like than You Can Crayon My Shoulder, but I think that it does have a slightly tinged base (most of the color you see is the color of the glitter, though). This polish also has a really nice depth due to the multiple sizes of glitter and I like how easy it is to get opaque without having to use a base.

Color Me Abstract has a fuchsia jelly base filled with tons of glassfleck shimmer and glitter. Formula was good, but a little thinner than the other two microglitters, so I used 3 thin coats for this mani. The finish was extremely hard to capture, but you can see all of the wonderful shimmer better in the macro shots.

Such a Fake has a shimmery gold base filled with multicolored glitters (similar to the glitters used in You Gotta Be Kitsch-ing Me). Formula on this one was a little thicker, but it was still easy to spread and apply. I used 2 coats for this mani, but you can still see a bit of visible nail line at some angles (the shimmer makes the polish look more opaque in some lights vs others). You could always layer it over a nude or gold base if you wanted to avoid that. It's not my favorite type of finish (the glitter in the shimmery base) but I like this one more than I thought I would.

Violaceous Vase is a shimmery purple/pink base with purple glitters. Formula and application was similar to Such a Fake, but I found this one showed even more visible nail line at 2 coats so I definitely think layering this one would be the way to go (over a purple base, I think it would be nice). I personally liked this one the least of all of the new polishes, and even layered I don't think it would particularly be my taste.

FingerPaints polishes are exclusively available from Sally Beauty Supply and these new additions to the core line should be available in stores and online in February.

Which of these are your favorites? Thanks for looking everyone!
