FingerPaints Film Noir Collection Swatches & Review

FingerPaints is Sally Beauty's in-house brand of nail polish and I used to buy them all the time when I used to live by the stores. But since I've moved to a much smaller town, where the most exciting store is CVS :( , I haven't bought as many as I used to. So when I got the chance to try some of their recent collections for review, I was quite happy! This collection came out during the middle/end of the summer so they might still be in stores. It's called the Film Noir collection and it's made up of four polishes that all dry to a matte finish.

First is Petal Obsession, a pale baby pink. This had a quite finicky formula, it dries very quickly so it was hard to apply without big streaks. On the first coat, some areas even shrunk up like crackle polish does! After three coats though I was able to make it look even and nice looking. It dried very matte, not satiny.

Next is Beautiful Mystery, a pale baby blue. Same formula as the pink above, this is also three coats. I love this color!

This is Film Noir, a deep burgundy purple. It dries a few shades darker than it looks in the bottle. Same formula, maybe dried a tad slower than the others, so application was a little easier. Three coats.

And this is Hollywood Decadence, a pale milky base with a glitter mix of washed out blue, pink and gold hexes. Application was fairly easy, the glitter is quite dense. I don't really like the look of this and I have similar polishes that are prettier imho. After I did these swatches I saw some people used Hollywood over the other colors in the collection, and that looked much better than it did on its own. I used two thick coats here.

I like the look of matte polish but the application usually turns me off to buying them. I'd rather use regular polish and just apply a matte top coat. That said, there are some pretty colors in this collection if you don't mind the matte formula. Look for FingerPaints in your local Sally Beauty stores or online, they are around $5.50 per bottle. What do you think of this polish quartet? Would you wear any of them? How do you feel about mattes?

See ya next time :)
