FingerPaints Bright Lights Big City... Urban Lights

spent over an hour and a half waiting to get a prescription filled at the military pharmacy today... that feels like forever when you're just sitting there with sick people coughing... ick. i think it was so crazy today because they are changing some things up, plus all the snow... the light at the end of the tunnel was getting Subway afterwards, i just kept daydreaming about that meatball sub :D

today we have Urban Lights from FingerPaints Bright Lights Big City collection. (it's a press sample, kindly provided to me for review!). it's a duochrome shimmer that flashes from blue and teal to purple... the purple is a bit more hidden, but definitely there! i love to layer duochromes over black, you get a stronger shift that way :) you can easily build it up to full opacity on its own if you prefer! i used two coats of Urban Lights and really loved the look. i highly recommend shiny topcoats with polishes like this, the shine will bring out all those nuances of color!

two coats Urban Lights, over one coat Salon Perfect Oil Slick (also a press sample), and finished off with one coat Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat

first up is the blue/teal...

and the purple... this was SO hard to capture on camera, i tried really hard and this was the best i could get!

FingerPaints polishes are sold exclusively at Sally Beauty Supply and their website

nothing exciting planned for this weekend, just a bunch of stuff to get done around the house. it finally warmed up here... well, it was in the 30sF, which felt positively tropical after the past week! Ria :)
