Fall Favorites Series Part 8: Finger Paints - To-Teally Chic

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone had a great time celebrating Thanksgiving and you're enjoying your weekend! I am, mostly because I went shopping the other day only to find that there's a brand new Lush store in my city :D I can't say how much I love their products and now I finally don't have to order my Lemony Flutter online anymore. Plus I did some severe hauling at the Douglas perfumerie where we have a new MAC cosmetics counter as well. Looks like besides nail polish I'm becoming addicted to their blushes and eyeshadows as well. So I would happily take any recommendations what to buy next or what your favorites products are :)

But now on to the nail polish! Today I have for you one from my beloved Finger Paints Fall Fashionista collection, which came out this year. First I saw swatches on several blogs and immediately was hooked to those colors. Some might say they're only not so special creme shades that aren't even too unique... Well, might be but still I can't explain why I love this collection so much. It's just the perfect combination of dusty but not too vampy Fall polishes for me. One of my fave colors is To-Teally Chic, a medium teal creme shade.

This polish was so hard to capture right on camera because somehow my camera likes to emphasize the blue and thus teal colors always look too blue. So in the bottle To-Teally Chic is a bit more green IRL. For the pictures of the manicure I had to play around with the white balance in order to get it right.


Application of To-Teally Chic wasn't perfect, because the polish is really thick! The polish still levelled out evenly on the nail and I needed only one coat for full coverage - wow! Drying took a bit longer than other polishes but in the end it dried to a very shiny finish.
For this manicure I used Sally Hansen Nail Growth Miracle as a base coat and CND Speedey as a topcoat.

I'm still thankful to my MUA swapping partner who got the Fall Fashionista polishes for me because sadly they don't ship internationally. In the US you can get them at Sally Beauty and they retail for $4,99 per 15ml bottle.

I hope you like this Fall Favorites Series so far and enjoy your Sunday!
