Two plums - both win!

If I remember just how good a polish was, will you be able to see my memory? And do they make the pictures prettier than they actually are? Perhaps not, but I can assure you this was a really great one. It's called Plum Startled and the brand is Finger Paints.



Sadly, these two photos were the only ones that came out sharp enough - I had no sun to shoot in, which is usually okay, even preferable, when we're talking duochrome finishes, but apparently it was too dark for my DSLR to focus properly, and we all know how useless my compact camera is for polishes in the purple family. The jelly base of this polish really is plum colored, and it's full of those duochrome foil particles we love so much, shifting from a direct angle blue purple, to the almost pink magenta you can see in the second photo.

No, my photos cannot do this polish justice, so if you run across a bottle, and you're as into vampy shimmers as I am, snatch it imemdiately. Sure, the formula was kind of icky thick, and doing thin coats is pretty much impossible, but I do not care. Some polishes are just much more easy to forgive than others.

I painted my nails with this during the very special occasion of Sofia's of One Inch Nails visit. We were having a very nice time and spent it accordingly - among other things (such as enjoying puff pastry) painting our nails in the same polish. That's how great we get along. If you haven't seen her blog, do it. Sofia's nails are as good as any nails ever get, and her photos of Plum Startled are way superior to mine.
