Fun from FingerPaints for Holiday 2014

*PRESS SAMPLES*

I have an assortment of polishes from FingerPaints to share with you today.  They come from several different collections.  Some are from Winter Wishes, some from Patent Leather and one from Holiday Glitz.  (I will indicate which collection by noting WW, PL or HG by the name.) Here are some pics!
Two coats each of Sugar & Spice (WW), Ho Ho Happy Holidays (WW), Wrapped in Ribbon (WW) and Silver Bells (WW)

One coat each of Patent Red (PL), Patent Black (PL), Glisten Here (WW) and Tangled in Tinsel (HG)

Okay, I'll start with the glitters.  These were designed (I presume) to be used primarily as top coats but I chose to try them out on their own to see what sort of results I would get. I think the ones I had the most success with were Ho Ho Happy Holidays and Glisten Here.  The least successful was Tangled in Tinsel.  I just have a really hard time, in general, with chunky glitters and this was no exception.  It was challenging to get the glitter to disperse even close to evenly and as you can see, I didn't do all that well, even after two coats.  So, if I had to choose, my favorites and least favorite are mentioned above.  

On to the creams.  Can I just say ONE COATERS?  YES!!!  I absolutely LOVED both of these polishes.  They applied like a dream, perfect opacity in ONE simple coat.  I didn't even top coat them as they had pretty terrific shine on their own. They are, by far, the winners of these eight for me.

You can find FingerPaints polishes at Sally Beauty Supply. If you pick them up, do let me know your thoughts.

The polishes used in this post were provided for my honest review and consideration.
