This month Finger Paints released their “Fall of Surprises” collection for, you guessed it, this fall. Last week I picked up three of the six polishes: Be-leaf It or Not, Fall of Surprises, and Plum Startled. I was going to get Gourd or Bad as well, but I reminded myself I don’t like bar glitter all that much and I’m trying not to spend much. I shouldn’t have been buying any to be honest. I didn’t even qualify for my monthly 15% off at Sally’s because I only spent $20 the previous month! (Yay me!)
Anyways, I’m posting these one by one since I really want to enjoy each one for a few days…who am I kidding…more like one day. Still, I want to wear it not just swatch it
Be-leaf It or Not didn’t catch my eye in the promo pics, but for whatever reason I was drawn to it once I saw it displayed. It is a metallic sage green with some shimmer that likes to play peek-a-boo, especially with my camera. I say this because while I was applying this polish I saw a gorgeous shimmer, but once it dried it was a lot more subtle. Maybe it was just the metallic “elements” of the polish that gave off that shimmer while the polish was wet and spread (*giggles*…that was really dirty).
Despite the uncooperative shimmer, application was smooth and perfect with complete coverage in 2 coats. I really love all the Finger Paints formulas I’ve used so far. I should show FP a little more love and buy some more!
The following pictures were all taken with flash, which I NEVER do! Shows how determined I was to get some shimmer on camera.
Did anyone else pick up any of the polishes from the Fall of Surprises Collection? If so which ones? Autumn is my favorite time of year so I was happy to find some good polishes in this collection.
