FingerPaints Shredded Chromes collection: Stardust Blush

purchased by me

Stardust Blush is the odd duck in this collection--instead of a gold and silver micro-glitter base with larger colored glitters, it has evenly sized rose and gold glitters.  It's insanely pretty, very feminine and suprisingly easy to work with.  I got complete opacity in two coats, and while it looks pretty with top coat, it also is nice as a textured glitter.

FingerPaints Shredded Chromes collection: Stargazing Lilac

purchased by me

Stargazing Lilac a lot like Metallic Moondust, but with purple glitter in with the silver and gold.  It has the same smooth formula and dries needing top coat.  Swatches are two coats.

FingerPaints Shredded Chromes collection: Metallic Moondust

purchased by me

Metallic Moondust is slightly chunkier than Copy Cat, but gorgeous in a different way.  It's a clear base filled with silver, gold and green glitters in various sizes.  It's just beautiful, and the mix of colors mean it can be worn in any season.  The formula was thick enough to hold the glitters but not goopy, and it was opaque in two coats.  All the Shredded Chromes dry somewhat bumpy, so a thick top coat is necessary.

FingerPaints Shredded Chromes collection: Copy Cat

purchased by me

The FingerPaints Shredded Chromes collection is available now at Sally Beauty, and I used the April Buy 2 Get One Free deal plus my 15% off coupon to bring home four of these lovelies.  First up is Copy Cat, a full-coverage glitter with a dual personality--silver and gold! :-)

Copy Cat is a clear base with a boatload of fine gold shimmer and large silver hexes.  It's another one of those polishes where it looks opaque even when it isn't because of all the shine.  It did reach opacity in two coats, and it was quite easy to work with (although removal was another story!).  Copy Cat dries bumpy, so a good thick top coat is a must.

Happy Easter!

purchased by me

The clearance bin at my local CVS had a few of these nail polish strips from last year's spring collection, and with the green plaid and the Migi nail art pens my friend Sherri got me, I came up with a simple and fun spring manicure.
