Finger Paints Breast Cancer Awareness 2010

As I'm sure you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this October, Sally Beauty's Finger Paints has released these two pink polishes to bring more awareness to the cause. From their press release:

"In October 2010, Sally Beauty will make a $65,000 donation to Cancer Support Community as a proud sponsor of its mission to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. "

Having had Breast Cancer affect family members of mine, I am glad to be able to show you these polishes, and thank Sally Beauty for donating to the cause.

Finger Paints I'm a Survivor

Candy pink with visible silver shimmer.

This is a fun color, and the silver shimmer is really visible in both indoor and outdoor light. Was super easy to apply, and was opaque in 2 coats. Great polish!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3.5

Use for Konad: Stamps so-so on lighter colors, but not great on darker.

Finish: Shimmer, 2 coats to be opaque.

Bubblegum pink with superfine silver shimmer

While not my kind of color, I can appreciate that this is a pretty, though not entirely unique, pink. It has a superfine silver shimmer to it, which is just barely visible on the nail, but shows up in bright lights. I'll be honest, I had a helluva time applying this, but maybe it was just me.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: Stamps so-so on both lighter and darker colors.

Finish: Shimmer, 3 coats to be opaque.

These polishes are available both online and in-store on October 1, 2010, at a cost of $4.99 each.

Products in this post were sent to me by the manufacturer for consideration.
