Hi all, I know I haven't wrote a post in awhile, and I want to apologize for that. Today I have Finger Paints' Special Effects to share with you. This collection consists of five flakie top coats. I can see that flakes will be a trend for nail polishes in 2012; and that is quite exciting. I was able to purchase all five at my local Sally Beauty for $5.49 each. I did them all over black to show the flakes.
Twisted happens to be my favorite one of the bunch. It's a mix of yellow, green, orange, blue flakies. This is one coat over black.
Motley is a blue, aqua and green flakie. This was two coat over black since with one coat you can barely see the green.
Flecked is a green flakie. This is one coat over black.
Flashy is an orange flakie with flashes of green flakies. One coat over black.
Asylum is a blue purple, orange, and green flakie. Kind of similar to Twisted but Asylum does not cover much with just one coat. It reminds me of Deborah Lippmann's Edge of Glory duo. It may be a dupe, and I will definitely do a comparison between the two. This is one coat over black.
We've seen a lot of blue green flakies, and orange green flakies, but Asylum and Twisted is pretty unique in it's own way. The formula for these were good, perfect and applied smoothly over the black. Will definitely experiment with these and put it over other colors.
Well that's all I have for today, what do you guys think of the Special Effects?
