Fingerpaints Winter Dreams Holiday Collection has me thinking about Christmas in a big way.Which is good and bad…
Only 3 more paychecks before Christmas Day? YIKES! I better start the near impossible task of figuring out what Mr. VV wants! 🙂
These six new colors are very festive, fun and spot on for the holidays.
Let’s check them out a little closer.
Winter Wishes is a pale champagne packed with silver iridescent glitter. This color is pretty but I had formula issues. This one was extremely thick and kind of gloopy. I don’t know if the bottle was just not great or what but applying it wasn’t the best. I did work out on the end. This was two coats.
Mulberry Madness is a deep ruby red with red glitter. I love that the base coat is pretty opaque and it’s jam-packed with glitter. The only negative I noticed, which really doesn’t even matter, is that it dries dull. But everyone wears a top coat anyway right (RIGHT?) so it’s fine. This definitely says Christmas, though original, not so much. This was two coats, which were also a little thick, but not as thick as Winter Wishes.
Holly Good Times
Holly Good Times is a pale gold base with tons of gold and red micro glitter. THIS is the holidays! I really wasn’t expecting to like this that much because I had presumed the base would be clear. However after two coats it’s just so pretty and very unique. Off the top of my head I can’t think of another color with this glitter combo that is also opaque. I think this might be my favorite one here. There were no formula problems here, the polish was a perfect consistency.
Mistletoe Mischief is a deep yet kind of bright evergreen with light green glitter. Very pretty and Christmasy! This was on the thin side compared to most of the other colors, which isn’t really a bad thing. I did need three coats for total coverage. I neglected to wrap the color on all three coats though, which is why you see that it’s lighter at the ends.
Merry Mittens is a medium warm red shimmer with red and gold glitter. I love this color also and really like the glitter. The glitter isn’t all-encompassing like some of the others, which allows the nice candy-apple red shimmer to come through. This too was a little thick though and had some flaws with the formula. This was three coats.
Just Plum Fun
Just Plum Fun is a deep eggplant shimmery purple. Gorgeous, dark, shiny and jewel-like, but perhaps not all that unique. The formula was much better on this, no problems and fully opaque in two coats.
While there were some formula consistency issues here, I do think all the colors are nice. I think the most unique ones are Holly Good Times and Merry Mittens.
Which ones are calling your name?
