It’s so exciting when you see a product or a collection created by a blogger. It’s even more exciting when that blogger is one of my faves and also a fellow sorority sister (unfortunately from a different college, but a sister all the same!)!! Michelle Mismas from All Lacquered Up has been working diligently with FingerPaints to create the A Pair Affair Collection, which consists of six shades of nail polish created by Michelle (click here for a behind the scenes look at the creative process of A Pair Affair)!
Of the six I chose Bare No Secrets and Our Tips Are Tealed.
I absolutely adore how Bare No Secrets is that perfect sandy beige but has some sporadic gold glitters to it… the secrets, if you will. Our Tips Are Tealed is a stunning emerald foil metallic shimmer with a hit of teal… just enough to make it different.
I used two coats of Bare No Secrets for full coverage and then two coats of Our Tips Are Tealed for the french effect. For a look at this mani in full sun and no flash, check out the Instagram photo.
A Pair Affair is a limited edition collection from FingerPaints and All Lacquered Up. Hurry and get them now at Sally Beauty where they retail for $5.29 each (or, if you have a club card, $4.49 each!).
A week or two ago I ran into my local Sally Beauty Supply in search of my favorite hair brush. Which, incidentally, they no longer carry. However, the trip was not wasted! The holiday polishes are out in full force, and I scored some good ones!
After much perusing the two holiday 2012 shades I decided on were Color Club Berry and Bright and Finger Paints Santa’s Magic.
I thought they’d be fun to layer and do a bit of “art” with. I ended up falling in love with the look and this is a front runner for my Christmas Day mani.
Color Club Berry and Bright is a beautiful foil metallic berry shade. It is scented and smells lovely. But, the best part? ONE COAT.
Finger Paints Santa’s Magic, aside from having an awesome and very fitting name, has a clear base with holo hex glitters of all sizes. It actually coated really well. I put one coat over the whole nail then dabbed a bit more near the tops of the nail after that dried.
I’m basically in love. What nail polish colors do you like to wear to be festive?
