FingerPaints Itsy Bitsy Spider Swatches & Review

FingerPaints Itsy Bitsy Spider Swatches & ReviewIf spiders and other creepy crawlers make you squeamish, don’t worry – my review on FingerPaints Itsy Bitsy Spider from the Wild About Spring Collection won’t make you run away screaming obscenities. (Err, at least I hope not!) 😉

You’ll remember that recently on Instagram, I shared a sneak peek of this nail polish. (Follow me on Instagram for those kind of posts as well as non-polish photos!)

The last time I was at Sally Beauty Supply, I perused the clearance shelf. (Many gems show up, and if you’re lucky to be there at the right time, you can get tremendous deals!)

I spied FingerPaints Itsy Bitsy Spider and knew it had to come home with me and weave its web in my Helmer (much to the horror of the other lacquer inhabitants)! 😉

P.S. Stay tuned for a post later this week. I have something very exciting up my blogging sleeve! 😉 If you’re into nail polish, you’ll want to make a point to check it out.

FingerPaints Guggen I’m Lime Swatches & Review

FingerPaints-Guggen-I'm-Lime-Swatches-ReviewIt’s no surprise that I’m a huge fan of green nail polish. Perhaps I was abducted by little green men who also had little green nails. 😉

The latest green lacquer I wore was FingerPaints Guggen I’m Lime, which I got free when I renewed my Sally Beauty Supply membership. They sent me a coupon, and that was even more of an incentive to renew.

You haven’t seen many reviews or swatches of FingerPaints nail polishes on here because I think I only have one other bottle (also a green – surprise, surprise). So I was pretty excited to add another FingerPaints polish to my collection.

FingerPaints Art Dealer Teal-er Review & Swatches

Don’t you just hate it when you’re wrong about a polish that you thought you’d love? You get all excited about bringing a new color home. Put it on and realize that it doesn’t have that wowness that would knock you over. And then you think you could’ve used that money to get another color.

That’s how I feel about FingerPaints Art Dealer Teal-er. It’s nice and lovely but definitely nothing special. In the bottle, the color looks like an opalescent soft teal. For some reason, I thought of a paradise island… with its clear blue-green water that has a softened glare because the sun is shining so brightly.

I’m glad I got this during a Buy 2 Get 1 Free FP sale at Sally Beauty Supply. It makes me feel better that I didn’t pay full price for it. Let me tell you why! Continue reading

Howdy! Happy 4th of July to all our friends on the south side of the border! Hope you have a great long weekend with friends, family, loved ones and some BBQ’d meats. At least that’s what I did on Canada Day!

Anyway, I want to celebrate this special day with my very first real nail-art attempt. I’m actually surprised with it since it’s my first ever design, although of course there is room for improvement. I made soooo many mistakes doing this, but that’s how we learn, right?

I had a lot of fun creating this Patriotic American Flag Nail Art… so much so that I’m thinking of doing an entire series on national flags! I’m hoping to take a vacation overseas soon and was just thinking (and getting excited) about traveling to a foreign land with its flag on my nails. OoOOo. Continue reading


FingerPaints Laugh My Art Off Review & Swatches

I recently discovered there’s a Sally Beauty Supply store near where I live. Like 5-minutes-away near. Within-walking-distance near. In-a-plaza-where-I-do-some-of-my-grocery-shopping near. Like… I’m-in-trouble-I-need-an-Intervention-before-my-wallet-stops-speaking-to-me near.

Last week I ventured into the SBS cautiously – I needed to scope out the place, but I didn’t want to plunk my credit card down on the cashier and say, “Give me one of everything.” (Although that sounds like fun.)

I allowed myself to get one nail polish – this time. And since I’m a blue fanatic with a glitter obsession, FingerPaints Laugh My Art Off immediately caught my eye. Gosh. I’m predictable. But this nail polish isn’t! It glistens every which way for unexpected look-at-me glamour. Yum! Continue reading
