FingerPaints-Enchanted Mermaid, July, 2014 Swatches

9:03 PM


Press Sample

Ever since their brand revamp, FingerPaints has really been releasing some gorgeous polishes. So of course when I received the offer to review their latest Enchanted Mermaid collection, I was excited to give it a try. The press release described it as below:

"FingerPaints Enchanted Mermaid Collection is a LIMITED EDITION underworld inspired textured nail collection with 4 sailor-seducing shades. You will fall victim to the temptress effect of this innovative nail collection! The alluring fish scale texture is available in multi-tone shades that shimmer and shift like the friendly underwater creatures. After 2-3 coats you will see the full effect morph! This collection is so unique and eye-catching you are sure to be enchanted!"

I also really like textured nail polishes so again, I was anxious to give this collection a try. I will admit that I wasn't expecting this type of texture. There is another national brand that had a recent collection called Crinkled Chrome and from the swatches I saw, I had no desire to purchase any of them even when I found them on clearance.  When I received this FingerPaints Enchanted Mermaid collection, I was loving the shades in the bottle...they are gorgeous, in...the...bottle. 
Of course, the first shade I wanted to try was the blue, Sailor's Lure, a blue-purple duo chrome. While the color is so pretty, first impressions, I not feeling the finish.  This is two coats.

Next is a golden-sage, Underwater Enchantress.  Again, this is a pretty shade but the finish is not one I would wear.This is also 2 coats. 


I've really been enjoying white manicures lately. This opalescent white is Sea Temptress. While this is 2 coats, to get full opacity, at least 3 coats would be needed.

Last, in this collection of four and probably my favorite is Tails of Love: a teal with a slight purple undertone. This is also 2 coats.

In summary, again, the shades are really pretty and I can only hope that FingerPaints will release them again but in a different finish.  I'm not feeling this textured finish.  If you are interested, this Enchanted Mermaid collection has already been spotted in several Sally Beauty Supply stores.  FingerPaints sell for $5.29 or $4.49 with a Beauty Club Card. Have you given this or China Glaze Crinkled Chrome collection a try with any success, and if so what application method did you use?

Grace, Peace, Joy & Blessings.
