Happy Saturday everyone! I am going to take a break from the Cosmoprof finds to share some prize winnings that I received from Finger Paints. Before I left for Vegas Finger Paints held another Facebook contests that I had entered and ended up winning a free set of their Mermaid Collection. The photo they had shared had me super excited for this collection. When I returned home my prize was sitting on the counter and I just stared at their beauty. Then time came for swatching…… oh what did I get in to? The Mermaid Collection consists of 4 gorgeous mermaid inspired shades and texturized to give a scaly finish. To get the scaly finish Finger Paints appears to have mixed in chunky clear hexes. All I can say is the idea was a fantastic one but the end result….. well the pictures speak for themselves.
First up we have Sea Temptress. This is a gorgeous pearly white blend with a hint of green shimmer and then filled with hexes. The color I love but the finish is terrible. In my photos I am wearing three coats of Sea Temptress.
Next up is Tails of Love. This is a beautiful teal blue shade with again the dreaded clear hexes for texture. I love the color but hate this finish. It’s lumpy and just not pretty. In my photos I am wearing just two coats of Tails of Love.
Now for Sailor’s Lure. This one is a stunning purple blue shade with more texture. Again, no love for the texture. In my photos I am wearing two coats of Sailor’s Lure.
Lastly we have Underwater Enchantress. This is a super pretty forest green metallic shade with more of that hex texture. I bet you can guess my feelings on this one…. In my photos I am wearing two coats of Underwater Enchantress.
So what do you guys think of the Mermaid Collection? Have you tried them yet? While I certainly don’t see wearing these on their own, they may work for some under the sea nail art. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing you guys again tomorrow with more of my Cosmoprof finds. <3
