FingerPaints Neon

fingerpaints_handI love wearing bright, neon shades in the summer but I miss them in the winter. This look is a great way for you wear the bright shades you love, but winterize them! It’s incredibly easy to do and I’ve even given you a step by step guide,  so it’s fool-proof! Think of it like a twist on a neon French mani!

Oh, and did I mention that FingerPaints relaunched their entire nail lacquer brand? Available in store February 1st is a completely revamped palette, and professional quality formula. Don’t worry, we kept some of your favorite shades, but now you can buy them in a better formula that is one stroke coverage, high shine, and long-wearing! We know you will be impressed!

The upgraded precision brush is also perfect for creating the straight lines and precision you need for this look.


WHAT YOU WILL NEED: FingerPaints Nail Color in Paper Mache, (white), Black Expressionism (black), Leonardo’s Lime (green), Inkblot Blue (blue), Pink Perspective (pink), Pop Art Purple (purple) and FingerPaints Top Coat in Clear.

STEP 1: Starting with your left hand, apply 1 stroke of Paper Mache along the far left side of the nail (The left when you are looking at your own hands). Repeat this step on the left side of every nail on the left hand only.

Hint: The white bottom layer is optional, but it really helps make the neon shades pop!

step2STEP 2: Now using the other nail colors, apply a second stroke of color on top of the white. To recreate the look in the photo follow this pattern: On the left hand, going left to right starting with your pinky, use Pop Art Purple, Pink Perspective, Inkblot Blue, Leonardo’s Lime, and a second coat of Paper Mache on your thumb. Do the opposite for your left hand.

STEP 3: Apply Black Expressionism to all nails, over the entire nail, except you want to leave a little slice of color. Think of it as a reverse french  effect.

STEP 4: Use FingerPaints Top Coat in Clear to lock in nail design and make color pop!



FingerPaints A Pair Affair by All Lacquered Up


I am so excited to show you our latest collection – A Pair Affair by All Lacquered Up. Sally Beauty had the great pleasure of working with Michelle Mismas on this collection, and I think you will love these duos:

Our Tips are Tealed & Bare No Secrets

Sage It Ain’t So & A Grape Catch

You Yacht To Know Better & Sarong So Right

Here’s what Michelle has to say about the collection, “When it comes to nail color, I’ve never been a matchy-matchy person. I figure life is too short and I have too many nail polishes to wear just one shade at a time. So with this collection, I wanted to create three sets of on-trend duos that work for mani-pedi combinations, multi-colored manicures and nail art. The nail polishes and names represent my love of color and playful sense of humor.”

They can of course be worn separately, but I think the way they pair together for nail art and accent nails is fabulous.

Check them out and let us know which one is your favorite duo!



FingerPaints Gel Polish – Nail Art

Have you tried the new FingerPaints Soak off Gel Polish? I’m in LOVE with the color selection and how long it lasts! Goodbye chips!

For my latest gel polish manicure, I wanted to mix things up with a simple nail art design. Here’s how to do it:

1. Prep nails by washing them thoroughly, and buff with a 180 buffer to remove shine. Push back cuticles with a plastic pusher and wipe nails with FingerPaints Gel Polish Soak-Off Gel Cleanser to remove oils and dust.

2. Apply FingerPaints Gel Polish Chip-Free Bonder to the tips of your nails. Skip this step if you’re doing a pedicure.

3. Apply a thin layer of FingerPaints Gel Polish Soak-Off Base Coat to fingers and cure in the LED lamp for 30 seconds.

4. Thin layers are the key to success with gel polish, so make sure all your layers are nice and light! Apply a layer of the pink gel polish and cure in the lamp for 30 seconds. Apply a second layer of the pink and cure for an additional 30 seconds.

5. Apply the orange polish at an angle to the tips of your nails and cure for 30 seconds in the LED lamp.

6. Then using the FingerPaints Gel Polish Soak-Off Top Coat, apply a thin layer and cure for 30 seconds. The top layer will be a little sticky, so remove that using the FingerPaints Gel Polish Soak-Off Gel Cleanser on a lint-free pad.

7. Lastly, massage a generous amount of FingerPaints Gel Polish Cuticle Oil to your cuticles. Use this daily to keep your manicure looking fresh.

Have you tried the new gel polish yet? What do you think?

FingerPaints Candy Coated

Have you tried the new FingerPaints Candy Coated collection? I love how it looks with a full nail of beads, but I thought I’d mix it up and try doing a few patterns with the beads. The trick to this is nail glue. It really helps the beads stick in the pattern. I also found using tweezers to manipulate the beads was helpful.

These are a few designs I came up with that you can try at home, along with the classic all over bead look. We’d love to see any of your designs, so feel free to upload your pictures to our Sally Beauty Facebook.
