Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day

Hey guys! It’s the middle of the week again. This week’s sure flying by fast for me. The weather will start changing today and we’re officially more or less in tornado season here. Temperatures will dip for a much cooler weekend. Enough of the sad news, here’s Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day.

Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day

Described as “royal blue and purple confetti “, this is one of the 3 shades from their Boomblast Glitters Collection. I expected the base for this shade to be more milky and opaque. It’s a wee bit “clearer” than I thought but definitely not a clear base. The glitters in this shade come in 3 different sizes and are lavender and light bluish that’s more like periwinkle than anything else. The smallest sized glitters are round while the other larger sizes are hex shaped. Formula is pretty good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

I actually like this shade more than I thought I would! For a more opaque milky look, layer this over a lilac crème or even try laying on another coat or 2. It’s a buildable shade.

Sinful Colors is available at various retailers and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. They’re usually priced at $1.99 but you can score some for as low as $0.99 each when there is a BOGO promo or some special pricing on these.

Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry

Hey guys! This week has been very busy. I’m looking forward to my upcoming trip that’s our honeymoon technically. I scheduled it to coincide with our first anniversary and I’m really looking forward to it! Today I have the last of the 10 new shades Finger Paints released for 2015 as part of their core line. Here’s Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry.

Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry

Still Life Strawberry is a magenta (or even fuchsia) version of Sterling Sculpture. I tend to think fuchsia is brighter and magenta leans more towards red so it’s darker. It’s a glitter shade that’s made up of magenta hex glitters in different sizes suspended in a clear base. It’s a very simple shade, but you can definitely jazz up a regular mani with this easily. Formula is good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

This shade should now be available in Sally Beauty Supply stores and online for $5.49.

Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden

The weather has warmed up quite a bit recently, but news of a cold front keeps my optimism of warmer weather at bay. This is good ‘ol Oklahoma after all. The weather can change day-to-day with 100 degrees difference in temperature. Yes, that has happened before. I imagine how the poor trees felt with that much of a swing in temperature! I’m finishing up featuring the new shades for 2015 from Finger Paints. Here’s Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden.

Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden

This shade is a chameleon to me. Looking at the bottle, you see this pretty blue and possibly green glitter shade. Swipe it on by itself and its true nature is revealed — a glitter shade made up of blue, green and purple iridescent hex glitters in several different sizes suspended in a slightly tinted purple base. I think this would look best over darker colored shades like blue, black and purple. It will reflect more of what you see in the bottle with those kind of shades for the base color. Formula is thicker than all of the other shades released at the same time. Shown is one with no top coat.

Finger Paints Sterling Sculpture

Hey guys! This week has been very busy. I was pulled into several different things at work throughout the week and that’s never fun. I’m hoping to be able to catch up with my backlog for the blog this weekend. I’ve also been on a stationary kick at Target’s Dollar Spot section. I’m a sucker for cute notepads, sticky notes and cards among other things. Anyway, today’s post is on one of the 10 new shades from Finger Paints for 2015. Here’s Finger Paints Sterling Sculpture.

Finger Paints Sterling Sculpture

Sterling Sculpture is a glitter shade that’s made up of silver hex glitters in different sizes suspended in a clear base. This shade is quite simple in terms of being a glitter shade really, but it makes a great glitter topper that way sometimes. Formula was good. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Finger Paints Violaceous Vase

Hey guys! This week has been very busy and confusing for me. I hope it was better for y’all. My husband did take me for a quick stop at the mall so I can take advantage of the 2 for $24 3-wick candle sale at Bath & Body Works. Trust me, I am not thrilled that it went up from 2 for $20 to 2 for $22 and now 2 for $24. I only buy what I really want and just one of each for now. I made 3 separate transactions and used up all the $10 off $30 coupons I had on hand. I got myself 6 3-wick candles, 2 pocketbac holders, 5 pocketbacs, and 3 nail files. I paid it all with gift cards I redeemed with my Discover card. Enough about that though. It has been extremely cold here for me this past week so I haven’t been able to get product shots and swatches from a few things I have lined up to share with you guys. So for now, here’s Finger Paints Violaceous Vase.

Finger Paints Violaceous Vase

Violaceous Vase is a glitter shade that’s one of the 10 new shades in the brand’s core collection. This shade contains violet hex glitters in different sizes suspended in a slightly milky pink shimmer base. There is a slight duochrome property to it really. Formula was good. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
