Finger Paints Fall Fashionista Collection 2011 - Swatches and Review

Summer is coming to an end and it is time for some fall collections. I don´t like reviewing fall collections in July because I am not in the mood for fall colors at that time. So today I have for you the fall collection from Finger Paints called Fall Fashionista:


STUNNING STILETTOS
Is a light grey creme. Two coats.

TO - TELLY CHIC
This is a blue, a bit teal. I like shades like this a lot for fall and this had great formula plus it is a one coater.

CATWALK QUEEN
I don´t like these mustard kinds of yellow very much. But if you do, I recommend this shade because as the previous one it was a dream to apply and covers in one coat.

RASPBERRY TAFETTA
This is my favourite of the whole collection. The color is so rich! I love it. This is two coats.

VINTAGE VELVET
A grayish teal. These colors are popular this fall. Two coats.

MILITARY GREEN
This was a surprise of the collection for me. You know I don´t like greens much. There are only a few I can actually wear. But this one is interesting. Very pretty shade of green. Two coats here.

CORDUR ORANGE
This is a reddish orange. Any kind of orange is great for fall so this color just fits into the whole collection. And this is another one coater.

HAUTE TAUPE
Taupe will always be popular. I don´t know if you would be interested but I could do a little comparison with this :) Two coats.

PURPLE PINSTRIPE
Another favourite of mine. This grayish purple is so nice and I like the way my nails look with it. Two coats again.

I have to admit one thing...I underestimated this collection. Yes the colors are nothing that special. I mean we have seen most of these before. The creme finish is also everywhere this fall. But you know what I love about these? Their formula and opacity. When I will be in the mood for a typical fall creme I will for sure wear something from this collection. I totally love Raspberry Tafetta, Military Green and Purple Pinstripe. Fall Fashionista is a nice typical fall collection that I am sure everybody can choose from.

  1. OMG! I love the colors! It's a shame that here in Portugal we don't have a lot of nail polish brands as you guys... But love to see them in your nails!:)

  2. I just love this color. Don't know why since the colors aren't too unique... It is so pretty. Too bad they don't ship to Europe. Thanks for swatching these!

  6. RASPBERRY TAFETTA mě jako jediný odstín zaujal, zbytek je celkem nuda, krémové laky mě moc nebraly nikdy, ale teď je to vyloženě extrém a nic takovýho bych nenosila... jsem divná.

  8. First time I saw this collection I said: these are my favorite colors, I already have them and I'm not a collector so I'm not interested about owning dupes or very close shades, but for people who doesn't have these dusty colors, yet, is a must have! Your post confirms this opinion of mine, and I think it's beautiful, again!

  12. I would be interested in any possible dupes for haute taupe. I have a few taupes in my collection and I never get tired of them. I think they're really interesting colors.

  13. Honestly I hate the fall when it comes to nail colors, I HATE HATE HATE fall colors, so this collection doesn't thrill me, and I probably won't be buying anything from it, but finger paints dupe for 'for Audrey' super nice, and the grey color isn't too bad

  14. I saw these at Sally's the other day, but I didn't buy any of them. For some reason, the Military Green was discolored on the bottom of the bottle (probably because it hadn't been shaken).

    I was wondering though, if Stunning Stilettos looks similar to Zoya Dove.

  15. Your swatches are so beautiful! I just posted a stamped manicure with To-teally Chic and I love this colour. I got another one of the purples from the collection but your swatches are making me want to head back to Sally's and see if they still have some of the other shades!

  16. When I saw promo pics I thought the same.. colors that aren't very unique and all cremes. But the quality really makes them stand out and make me sad I don't have access to Finger Paints!

  17. Hmm, I guess this is the first collection in a history that I would like to keep for myself completly! I have no experience with FP, but these babies are sooo my thing :> OK, it nothing new, but still beauties!

  18. Pani: Finger Paints deserve more attention :) they have some very pretty polishes. Just too bad they aren´t available in my country.

  19. Where do you buy these? I mean, I did a quick search and couldn't find an online-retailer anywhere in the EU.
