Finger Paints ~ Brilliant Brushstrokes


Finger Paints ~ Brilliant Brushstrokes
Warm cherry red with golden microshimmer


Here’s another brand that I managed to get my hands on through a blog sale. I find it a very nice way to buy some stuff that isn’t easily available in my part of the world.

When I saw the actual bottle I thought that I bought something that wasn’t me at all. I didn’t realize that the microshimmer was golden when I bought it. I decided to give it a go anyway – I did pay for it after all. :D

I was very positively surprised. I’m not usually into golden tones, but I think this particular polish looks okay on my nails. The formula was great, btw. No problems at all with the application, and it took two coats to reach full opacity.

No top coat yet:


I decided to stamp on this. I wanted a ladybird design, so I picked polka dots from plate KD3 and a cute little ladybird from plate H22. I used a no name black stamping polish.



I stamped one ladybird on the ring finger and two on the thumbnail.

I used Poshé top coat, which usually doesn’t pull on my designs, but I can see that it did today anyways. Oh well.


What do you think? Do you like the ladybirds?

Opacity: 7/10
Colour, prettiness: 5/10
Durability: 8/10
Value for money: 6/10
Overall: 6.5/10
Buy again: No

  9. I love the shade on you, and your artwork is very cute. Why would you not buy this again? Is it just the shade or the Fingerpaints brand?

    1. It's definitely the shade. The polish itself was very nice to work with, and I did in fact buy a couple of Finger Paint polishes, I just haven't tried on yet. :)

  11. Pretty! I love gold shimmer, but I don't like yellow-toned reds. Go figure.
