Finger Paints - Motley

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!  Happy Sunday!  I hope you're all having a good weekend.  Boy did I have a hectic Saturday.  Between dance classes for my daughter, errands, house chores, and work I had to bring home, I was exhausted.  I still didn't finish the work I brought home because I felt so brain dead, so I plan to finish it up today (after church and my daughter's art class).  Whoo!  What a weekend.  But on the plus side, I'm off tomorrow, so I'll get to sleep in ;0).

Just an update about the blog.  In case you haven't noticed, I added a "Swatches" page, so if you need to check out a specific polish, it makes it much easier to find.  Secondly, I removed the word verification on the comments.  I realized that it was a pain and unnecessary since I approve comments anyway.  So it should be less time consuming if you'd like to post a comment.

On to the polish!  I have one of the Finger Paints flakies to share with you.  When there was such a huge buzz about these flakies, I stalked my Sally's at least twice a week.  Every time I went they either didn't have any or only had one left.  I took Motley and was hoping to find Twisted eventually, but that never happened.  I'm really happy I got Motley though, it was one of my favorites of the bunch.

Motley is a clear base with blue and green flakies.  The only other flakies I have in my stash is Shine of the Times, so it was a welcomed change.  Motley has just the right amount of flakies.  It's not too dense, so it doesn't totally take over the manicure.  However, you still get a great amount in just one coat.

Below are pics of Motley over Essie Bobbing for Baubles:

In these pics, I layered Motley over OPI Russian Navy:

You can see some of the green flakies in this one.

The green mostly shows up on my ring finger.

I love this polish!! What a great way to spruce up a mani.

Were you able to grab anything from this collection?  What do you think of Motley?

  4. You're right, this is much more subtle of a flakie than SotT and I really like that about it! Looks fantastic over those deep, navy blues.

    1. Yes, I really love it over deep blues. I tried it over a lighter shade, but the flakies don't really show up.

  10. Those flakes look gorgeous both over Bobbing for Baubles and over Russian Navy. I love flakes but I tend to forget to use them :D

    1. Thanks hon! So glad you like it. I forget sometimes too, but I usually remember when I don't want to take a polish off yet, but want a change.
