Finger Paints Fall Fashionista Swatches

I want to start by saying that I don’t really like fall. I don’t like it because it means summer is over and winter is coming soon, and I hate winter! The cold and the snow are just very hard for me to deal with. It’s much warmer where I come from and there is no snow. Now, if I could just stay at home all winter by my fireplace with my kitty I wouldn’t mind, but of course I have to drive and driving in the snow really scares me. I’m always very nervous and anxious all winter.
Anyway, I still like all colors, so when I saw the new FP fall collection at Sally’s I grabbed the three I liked the most.

Cordur-Orange. I think this is the perfect fall orange! It’s not as bright as my picture makes it, it’s a little dusty but still very orange (if that makes sense). I did one coat for my index and pinky, and two coats for middle and ring finger. Formula was great, a little thick but it applied well, and even though I did two coats on two fingers to compare, this is easily a one coater.


Vintage Velvet. This is another one coater! It’s a dusty teal creme, and I love colors like this! I did two coats on index and middle, and one coat on ring and pinky. Once again, the formula was good.


Purple Pinstripe. This is dusty purple creme. This was a little sheer on me so I did two coats on all nails.

Like I’ve already mentioned the formula was really good on these, and the colors, even though they may not be terribly unique, are still pretty and very autumn-y. My favorite is Vintage Velvet! 😀

NOTD: Essie Braziliant

Hello, today I have another Essie from their summer collection, it’s the collection’s namesake, Braziliant.

It’s a bright orange (not neon) with pink shimmer, I don’t think the shimmer comes through in the picture, it’s more obvious in the bottle than in the nail. I did two coats, the formula was a little thick but not too bad.

NOTD: Milani Metal Gear

Again I did my nails and rushed out before they were dry so I got lots of dents and smudges. Here it is anyway, Milani Metal Gear. I wanted to get more colors from this collection, but my CVS only had this one and Melt with U left when I found them.

And a close up shot because the color it’s still pretty, despite my bad application! 😛

Zoya Polishes

I got my new Zoyas from the exchange! I only got the minimum 6 to try out the brand since I didn’t own any Zoyas. I also did it during the last couple of days, now I wish I had done it earlier so I could get a chance to try them and order more.
This is what I got:

Gwin, Yummy, Demi, Charla, Midori, Yasmeen
They all look so pretty! 😀

I used Gwin to do my nails:

It’s more orange and less red in person than it looks in the picture, but it’s very pretty and shimmery, lots of gold and green shimmer. I love oranges like these.

The brush though, gave me some problems, the end of it was angled. I checked the other brushes and they looked ok, so maybe I got a bad brush? Anyway, I still love this color.

More pictures to show the shimmer:


(I was taking pictures in my car :P)
