Fingerpaints Yes, You Can-vas

FP Yes, You Can-vas is a really old, non-b3f color that I've had for many years.  It is a gorgeous warm red-purple jelly with stunning sparkles, and is a definite keeper for me.  Application was outstanding - great formula despite it's age, flowed evenly with no streaking or dragging, and built nicely in opacity, all accompanied by that wonderful chemical smell that is characteristic of non-b3f polishes of days gone by.  I believe this one is d/c'd, so if you can find it (especially the non-b3f version) do grab it - it's stunning!  Enjoy -     >^..^<

OPI Feelin' Hot-Hot-Hot

OPI's Feelin' Hot-Hot-Hot is a beautiful warm hot pink creme form the Spring 2009 South Beach collection.  Application was very nice - it was a tad thin, so it took 3 coats for full opacity, but it self-leveled nicely and was streak free.  This one is a warmer pink than Indi-a Mood For Love that I posted recently (that one has a more blue-ish base), but it is just lovely!  Perfect for spring / summer.  Enjoy -     >^..^<

FP Psychedelic Hue over Zoya Evvie

This is a lovely combination - green / blue flakies over a beautiful muted midtone dusty evergreen creme.  I love Zoya creme's (usually) and this one is no exception - the brush is nice, the formula is thick and creamy, and it was easy to control, building to full opacity in just 2 coats with no streaks or bald spots.   I used 1 thick coat of FP Psychedelic Hue over Evvie, dabbing in places to ensure even density.  I love the look of this combo - it was perfect eye candy on a dreary weather day!  Enjoy -     >^..^<

OPI I'm Indi-a Mood For Love

OPI I'm Indi-a Mood For Love is from the Spring 2008 India collection - a superb collection of polishes, IMO, and was I believe the first full collection to be b3f in OPI's line.  This is a lovely hot pink creme with purple undertones, and it is so gorgeous!  Application was very good - great formula despite it's age (6 years already!), easy to control, and built nicely in opacity.  The color is so rich, and with it's strong cool undertones is a little different than your average hot pink.  Perfect for spring I'd say!  Enjoy -  >^..^<

ChG United

ChG United is from a breast cancer awareness collection in 2012.  It is a warm pink multicolored glitter, and is fairly opaque at 3 coats, and is a little too dense to use as a topper.  Application was good - the formula was nice, easy to control around the cuticle, and was sufficiently opaque at 3 coats.  Removal wasn't bad either - for a glitter.  :)  The color was very nude in tone - a ynnb color but with glitter!  Enjoy -     >^..^<
