Blue Monday: Finger Paints - Motley (Part Two)

Today I have for you the second part of my Blue Monday mani. I mentioned yesterday that I was at Sally's and found 4 Finger Paints polishes for $1.99 in the clearout section. I also happened to find 3 of the 5 newly released Finger Paints Special Effect flakie polishes. I grabbed Motley, Asylum and Flecked and was disappointed to find out that none of the Sally Beauty Supplies (there are 3 in my city) ever received Twisted or Flashy. Needless to say, they all have my phone number and will be calling me as soon as they receive them, haha.

Anyway, after that long ramble, I have my finished Blue Monday mani for you.

Motley, 2 coats layered over Gallery Glam

Please excuse the dry cuticles but I just had to show the 
depth of the polish and the amazing flakies.

I'm not sure there are any words to describe how perfect Motley is. She is a beautiful teal/green/blue flakie polish and I find that layering it over Gallery Glam really helped to add depth to the mani. You can see the shimmer from Gallery Glam coming up through the flakies and it really adds that extra dimension and WOW factor. *dreamy sigh* 

I found that I could see a really vivid indigo flash in the flakies ... I'm not sure if this is because I layered it over Gallery Glam, but it was absolutely gorgeous. (Has anyone noticed that, too?) I need to try all of them over black soon so I can compare. Any reason to wear flakie polish is a good reason to me!

Do you own any of the Finger Paints flakie polishes? What do you think?


  1. Looks great. The flakie top coat really stands out on the base colour.

  2. So I thought I only needed Twisted, but now I'm pretty sure I need Motley and Flecked too.

  3. Laura, I have got a little case of polish envy. I NEED Twisted!

  4. I want Motley so bad! This is so pretty! I only have Twisted(which I love lol) but I really need Motley!!(;

  5. Definitely a WOW! I love when flakies are over a dark or black polish. Especially blue/green kind of flakies..love this!

  6. I have Twisted, Motley and Flashy. I had Flecked in my hand and put it back and have been kicking myself ever since. I'm thinking I need to make a trip to Sally's tomorrow! I think buying polishes is as fun as trying them on!
