Finger Paints Romanticism Ruby

I picked up some Finger Paints at Sally Beauty and I think they're some of the new shades. I didn't see any display, so I asked the sales girl if they had any new Finger Paints. She waved over at the main display and said they were just mixed in there. She was wearing a tag with a Finger Paints bottle on it that read "40 New Shades", so hopefully, the ones I bought were new!

Above & Below: Romanticism Ruby is a beautiful glass-flecked red that applied nicely in 2 coats. I didn't use a top coat, and my only complaint is that it doesn't have a terribly high gloss finish when it's dry. Don't get me wrong, because it is glossy, just not as glossy as many other polishes. So I'll add a top coat and the problem will be solved. The glitter is red, but when the light hits it, there is a definite gold shimmer to it.
Below: Because I can't seem to stop layering Hidden Treasure over everything...I really need to put HT away, or I'll soon have none left!

Below: Here are the Finger Paints I picked up L-R: Hue Rang?, Tough Art To Follow, Easel-Y Entertained, Romanticism Ruby, Hue Left A Message?, Sketch N Etch. I swatched Hue Left A Message? on my thumb to see what it was like and it's a major glitter that I fear is going to be a pain to take off!
I love Romanticism Ruby--it reminds me of OPI's Smitten With Mittens, Barielle's Glammed Out Garnet, and it even seems to be a bit Essie Ruby Slipper-esque. The formula is very nice and it had great coverage with no streaking. As I mentioned above, the finish is not a super high gloss as many other polishes are, but that's not a big deal, I just wanted to mention it. These are on sale at Sally Beauty right now for buy 2 get one free, and they are also available on their web site.

  2. So,Mary,have you found Hidden Treasure hard to remove? I am curious. And also would you mind giving a review of just Hidden Treasure by intself? I am still on the fence, about it. Do you have any other flakies to compare it too,as far as removal goes? Thanks!

  14. Romanticsm ruby is actually my favorite polish to put Hidden Treasures over, and I have to say your pictures, although beautiful, don't do it justice! I get sooo many compliments every time I wear them together, even on my toes!
