FingerPaints Picnic in the Park... Picnic Blanket

it's snowing again! i'm so very ready for Spring. had a great meeting with another saddle fitter who reps for Black Country and she has a demo saddle that i think will work for Echo with a little tweaking. it's dark brown with royal blue piping, so not what i would have picked... but it's basically a new saddle for almost $1000 less than the cost of a new saddle! PLUS, Mr. Pawlish surprised me by taking the rest of the week off for muh birthday! so, the snow's not harshing my mellow :)

today i have Picnic Blanket from FingerPaints Picnic in the Park collection to share! (it's a press sample, kindly provided to me for review). this glitter is perfectly named, it's red and white square pieces suspended in a clear base... definitely gets you thinking of your traditional picnic blanket! it's absolutely adorable. sadly, like every other large glitter i have tried, it's quite difficult to work with. you must dab with the brush carefully and place the pieces, it absolutely will not flow off the brush. to get the most pieces, hold the bottle upside down with the brush in it before each nail. with dabbing and placing, you will get air bubbles. that said, i used it over FingerPaints Frosty Lemonade (press sample) and it makes the cutest mani... makes me think of picnic food! i just wish it was more user friendly. definitely add top coat to help your mani dry as you will most likely have a thick layer of polish!

one coat Picnic Blanket over one coat FingerPaints Frosty Lemonade, finished off with one coat Salon Perfect High-Shine Top Coat.

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

so excited to have Mr. Pawlish home for the rest of the week... it's an awesome birthday present! Ria :)
