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
The colors are fantastic, but that texture is terrible! It looks like the polish is 10 years old and you tried to put it on without thinning it. Blech.
It really is unfortunate. I was so excited about the colors but the finish and application crushed me!

I picked up the sailor’s lure on sale the other day and should have tested it first, omg. It was so bad I searched online to see if anyone else felt like their nails had a case of shingles and came across this. This is horrible. Fail! !
I totally agree! While it was a great idea on paper, the execution leaves little to be desire. I do still think the could be cute for nail art accents but on their own….NO!!!! lol!
