Finger Paints 2011 Spring Collection: Palette of Petals Swatches

Palette of Petals is Finger Paints Spring collection. Six bright and festive colors that remind me of, well, flowers and spring. Which I suppose is the point. Odd to have these when it is 20F out and icy/snowy but fun. Each bottle comes with a crystal flower ring that coordinates to the color of the polish. I do love kitsch.

I am a bit chagrined by the stupid name trend. I thought OPI had a corner on that market but it seems I am wrong.

Did You Ash-Her Out? A bright and vibrant pink creme that borders on neon. Three coats were needed but I think if you wore a foundation color it would help. It's really vibrant and not as coral in real life as it is showing in the photos.

Dahlia My Number. A peach/orange with golden shimmer. The only shimmer in the bunch. Reminds me of juice and only needed two coats.

Carnation Creation. Great formula. Smooth and creamy and a one coater. This is a teal creme that leans more towards the green spectrum of teal. Really pretty.

Aren't You Glad-iolous? A really lovely lilac creme with a suprisingly nice formula. One coat and it went on smooth. I'm not a huge fan of the color on me but I am impressed with the formula. I can see working this into some nail stamping.

Heavenly Hydrangeas. This is lovely. It's a rosey plum creme. I did two coats but I could have done one thick coat and have been happy. Wonderful formula! This is along the lines of OPI Dim Sum Plum.

Chrysanthe-mum’s the Word. Ah, the problem child. The formula on this one was thick and a bit gummy. Oddly enough, as it dried it did smooth out somewhat (not enough) but applying it was a pain - some thinner may help. It's a vibrant apple green creme.

Here is the ring that comes with Carnation Creation. Blingish!

My thoughts:

It's not a unique collection but it is bright and cheery. The formula on most is wonderful and you can usually get them on sale so the price is good. But oh, the names! My picks are Heavenly Hydrangeas and Carnation Creation. Palette of Petals will be available from Sally Beauty Supply, online and in stores, March 2011.

What the hell is with the names this Spring? When i first head of these names I was speechless, didn't know if it was a secret joke of nail bloggers to make fun of OPI names, or were they serious ... anyway, i love the greenish teal and rosey plum. Oddly enough green isn't calling my name. o.O
