FingerPaints Bright Lights, Big City

FingerPaints Bright Lights, Big City is a six shade collection with a big variety. 

What a Night is a duochrome that shifts from yellow gold to rose gold

In The City Lookin' Pretty is a very sparkly pink and holographic silver glitter topper. It really is attention grabbing. I applied one coat over What a Night




Paint The Town Purple is a sheer soft purple with pink and blue shimmers throughout.

Dance Floor Diva has a purple tinted base with silver, black and blue glitters.

Urban Lights is another duochrome, shifting from teal to purple, the purple shows through in the bottle, but it was really hard for me to capture on my nails. 


Just for fun I also wanted to try Urban Lights topped with In The City Lookin' Pretty

Hey Mr. DJ is a black base filled with red, blue and silver glitter. I really like this one, it is definitely more my style. 

Up close to really get a detailed look at the glitters.

This collection is available at Sally Beauty Supply

FingerPaints Holiday Glitz Mani Kit

This is a Limited Edition trio kit, which contains a foil finish and two glitter toppers. 

Glitz and Glam is a silver foil, it applied wonderfully, no streaking and very opaque. 

Tangled in Tinsel is a multi-colored (silver, gold, pink, blue and green) and multi-sized glitter topper, it is the "big sister" to Glisten Here from the Winter Wishes Collection. 

FingerPaints Patent Red topped with FingerPaints Tangled in Tinsel

Sparkle with Me has various sized white glitter and micro holographic glitter in a clear base.

2 coats on my bare nail. 


 
FingerPaints Patent Black topped with FingerPaints Sparkle with Me, this reminds me of falling snow at night, it's so pretty.


This kit can be purchased here at Sally Beauty

Venique Tis the Season Collection

This is a five shade collection, perfect for the holiday season, with a mixture of golds, glitters, holo's, shimmers and foil finishes. 
Listen Up Ebeneezer is a clear base full of various sized gold glitter, I used two coats to reach full opacity, but you can also use this as a topper as shown below using just one coat.

Selfies with Santa is a clear base with glitters of various size and color. Once again, two coats will be fully opaque, but it is also a lovely topper, as shown below.

Ring Ting Tingling has a shimmery base packed full various sized gold and rose gold glitters. I think this one is very unique, I have personally never seen a polish like this one.

#Holiday is a scattered silver holographic polish. 
You can really see the beautiful rainbow effect when the sun hits it. 
This is a bit sheer, I used three coats to build it up to full color, but that also means you can use it as a topper if you'd like and make any color holo!

You Kiss 1 Mall Santa You've Kissed Them All (wow what a long name, haha) is  a fuchsia foil finish, not the typical holiday color, but as you can see from my previous photos it does pair well with the glitters.

FingerPaints Winter Wishes Collection

Winter Wishes is a five shade glitter collection. I think they are best built up and worn on their own and not layered over a base color, since they are so densely packed, two coats will get you full opaque color.  

Silver Bells, silver micro-glitter.

Wrapped in Ribbon, gold micro-glitter.

Ho Ho Happy Holidays, silver and baby blue micro-glitter.

Glisten Here, multi-colored (silver, gold, pink, blue and green) micro-glitter.
Sugar & Spice, berry-toned red micro-glitter.

This is a limited edition collection, which can be purchased at Sally Beauty Supply Stores.

FingerPaints Limited Edition Patent Leather Kit

FingerPaints Patent Leather kit contains two creme shades and a shiny top coat. 

Patent Red, is a red creme, which is already super shiny on its own, but once you add the topcoat it takes it to a whole new level. You can't go wrong with a red creme, even better is that this is so pigmented it is a one coater! 

Patent Black is a black creme, and just like Patent Red, it is a one coater, full coverage! 
I am very impressed by the formula of both of these, sometimes the most simple colors can end up being tricky to apply, but not these. 

You can find this manicure kit at Sally Beauty.

Red Carpet Manicure: I Own The Runway

This is, I Own The Runway from Red Carpet Manicure's Postcards from Milan Collection. 
I love dark burgundy colors like this, but this isn't just any old ordinary vampy shade, it has a little something special, when the light hits it, you can see hidden shimmers, which really bring this shade to life and makes it stunning.  




You can find this shade here, along with many (121 in all) other fabulous shades that Red Carpet Manicure offers.
