Review: TWO (!!!) Finger Paints Special Effects, Motley and Asylum!

I've already started a post with AHHH MMAHH GAAAHD in the past 24 hours so must think of some other introduction.....hmmm.  I'm really excited? That'll do.  But yes, I am soo very super psyched today as I have two more Finger Paints Special Effects!  The lovely Kitty hooked me up with two (!!!) bottles and they're so worth it, so good.  As I couldn't decide which one to use, why not both?

First up, I wanted to do something other than a flat black for a change.  Here I used two coats of Nicole by OPI No Limits, a gorgeous almost black blue.  It's a heavily pigmented jelly and so glossy on.  I'm a fan.  Next, I added a coat of Asylum (orange and purple flakes), one of Motley (green and blue) and then another of Asylum because it's amazing.  The result? A beautiful flakie rainbow!

The Verdict:  These are amazing, I just hate how hard they were to come by.  The rainbow Finger Paints Asylum and Motley make together is beautiful.  I just wish I hadn't ruined this making the bed about 10 minutes after taking these pictures... :(


  1. What topcoat do you use? I use Seche Vite and can get back to using my nails like normal about 10 mins after putting it on. I could probably do it sooner but I like to make sure it's totally dry.

    1. I used Seche Vite too but stuffing your hands down the sides of a Malm bed to put a fitted sheet on is too much even for the mighty SV :(

  2. Aw, sorry to hear about the bed destroying your gorgeous nails!! This is so pretty!! :D

  3. I have all 5 of these and they are awesome!

    1. *crushing jealousy*. I think Asylum is the one I wanted the most, are there any other must-haves?

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????

MOAR GLITTER YES SPARKLIES GOOD VERY MUCH YES.  I'm such the wordsmith.  What I lack in wordies, I make up for in sparklies!  Cos I have another mermaidy thing to show you!  This one is purple, pink and gold!  I have even made the glitter available if you wanna try.  You know, if you aren't chicken.  Bock.  I HAVE HAD A LOT OF COFFEE THIS MORN, DEAL WITH IT.
