Finger Paints Pastel Rain Swatches

Hey guys! I’m so glad this week is flying by fast! I’m looking forward to the weekend to get some more swatches done. Today’s post is on Finger Paints’ offering for Spring. Now, I know we’re entering Summer already, but some of these shades would actually look good for Summer too! I’m referring more to the glitter shades. I can see them being used over other bright and bold colors. Without further ado, here are swatches for the Finger Paints Pastel Rain Collection.

First up is Mistful Thinking.

Finger Paints Mistful Thinking

Mistful Thinking is a green pastel crème. This shade made me think of Shrek. It applied the most sheer out of the 3 crèmes in this collection. I had to use more coats for this shade. Shown is 4 coats with no top coat.

Next is Shower With Flowers.

Shower With Flowers is the matching glitter shade to Mistful Thinking. It is made up of pale yellow-green small round, hex and bar glitters sprinkled with holographic micro glitter suspended in a clear base. Shown below is the shade alone with 2 coats and no top coat.

Next we have Springtime Bloom.

Finger Paints Springtime Bloom

Springtime Bloom is a pink pastel crème. There’s nothing extremely special about this shade but I do love the color and hue a lot. It’s the perfect pink pastel in my opinion. It applied slightly patchy with the first coat but it evened out with a second coat. It didn’t take too long to dry at all for a crème shade. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next up is A Pink Of Pixie.

A Pink Of Pixie is the matching glitter shade to Springtime Bloom. It is made up of pale pink small round, hex and bar glitters sprinkled with holographic micro glitter suspended in a clear base. It’s basically the same as Shower With Flowers, but in place of pale yellow-green it’s pale pink. Shown below is the shade alone with 2 coats and no top coat.

Moving on, we have Dream I Can Fly.

Finger Paints Dream I Can Fly

Dream I Can Fly is a pretty pastel blue crème. Again, nothing too special about this shade and it reminds me of similar looking shades from OPI (something from the Nicki Minaj collection) and Cult Nails. But, it’s a nice pastel blue to get in case you are in the market for one. Formula for this one is not as good as Springtime Bloom, but it flows nicely onto the nail and evens out very well. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

And lastly, here’s Crystal Springs.

Finger Paints Crystal Springs

Crystal Springs is the matching glitter shade to Dream I Can Fly. This glitter shade is different from the previous ones. It is made up of silver chunky glitter that resemble shards with small blue and gold pastel round glitter suspended in a clear base. Shown below is the shade alone with 2 coats and no top coat.

Overall? The pastel shades are good to get if you don’t have one yet and are in the market for one, but the glitters is where it’s at. I didn’t find the glitter shades to be something I’ve already seen produced over and over again. These shades should be available in Sally Beauty Supply stores and online for $5.99 each.
