FingerPaints Fall 2011 Fall Fashionista Swatches and Review

I stopped by Sally Beauty to pick up some Gelous and better clips to use when I cut and henna my hair. I noticed a new display of FingerPaints, and my mom pointed out the buy two, get one free deal they were running. I love FingerPaints, I love dusty and murky colors, and I really love free things. I got six of the nine, and decided to swatch them before they are lost in the yet to be sorted and stored nail polish abyss.

All swatches are over Gelous and topped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. You can click to see them bigger, but they are all cremes, so you're really just going to see the air bubbles brought on by the absurd humidity. I feel like I'm slowly drowning, accumulating a bit of water with every breath. Not only is it sticky and miserable, but it's not conducive to smooth nail polish, especially cremes.


Cordur-Orange is a spicy, medium orange. The second photo is most color accurate, though it did change slightly in different light, losing the dusty quality and appearing a brighter orange.  This is one coat.

To-Teally Chic

To-Teally Chic is a medium, dusty teal. I only have two photos for this one, because the LED lamp made this photograph as a neon blue, which is not even remotely accurate, so I scrapped it. This is one coat.

Stunning Stilettos

Stunning Stilettos is a slightly blue tinged grey. It pulls quite blue on me, but I think it might appear to be a more neutral grey on those with cool skintones. This is two coats.

Purple Pinstripe

Purple Pinstripe is a dusty purple that leans a bit into mauve territory. The first photo is most accurate, but I think it might be a bit more red in person. This is two coats.

Haute Taupe

Haute Taupe is taupe, well, really it is more of a light milk chocolate color. It isn't as dark, purple, or grey as many of these type of colors tend to be. This is two coats.

Military Green

Military Green is a dusty olive green creme. It is similar in color to Essie Sew Psyched without the shimmer. This is two coats. (My cuticles look really scary here. )

All of these had great application, the photos are without cleanup. I'm really happy with this impulse buy, and suggest you pick up any that you might be interested in while they are still on special.
