The ALU Archives – Finger Paints Be A Pal-ette

The ALU Archives is a new series focusing on older, beloved shades from the All Lacquered Up stash.

Being that my purple streak is still going strong, I decided to rummage through the archives and give one of my fave poiples some much deserved love. Today’s pick… Finger Paints Be A Pal-ette.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Finger Paints is a Sally Beauty Supply owned line of nail polish that is carried exclusively in their stores. With artistically themed shades given quirky names like Easel Come, Easel Go and Mixed Media Maroon it’s no wonder the brand was rumored to be owned or created by OPI. That’s just a myth.

Be A Pal-ette was one of my first Finger Paints purchases when I first discovered the brand a few years back. I was immediately drawn in by its glitter packed appearance though what I love most is that despite its red base, the blue sparkle makes the end result a universally flattering purple. Not too warm, not too blue. Also, the formula on this one is somewhat jelly-ish so the finish is uber-glossy with the silver, red and blue micro-glitter floating just under the surface.

Finger Paints retail for $4.69 ($3.89 with a Sally Beauty Club Card) though Sally’s runs a ton of deals on the brand so be sure to check out their specials flyer for current deals and the online printable coupons section for BOGOs.

    That is really pretty!! I wish that these could be purchased online. The closest Sally’s is like 13 miles away and I just refuse to drive that far, considering it is 13 miles in a direction that I never go.

    Yea for purple! I am going to try the Finger Paints brand. I never go in Sally’s anymore because I usually just stick to OPI, but I will now!

    This might be one way I can avoid paying out big $$ for Chanel's vendetta & will satisfy my purple polish craving! Thank you for posting.

    Katee – you refuse to drive 13 miles? seriously? that’s nothing. get yourself to sallys

    Phyrra – FP really doesn’t get enough love. I used to stalk their seasonal collections but lately I seem to get there after they’re all gone. Boo!

    Anon – Oh you must try them. Lots of OPI fans hav converted over to FP. Let me know what you think.

    Jennifer – I’m glad I could save you and your wallet from taking a hurt. Enjoy!

    MakeupMyLack – You’re too kind. Did you swap to get FP all the way to Sweden?

    Do you think it will ever take off where men wearing nail polish will become mainstream?

    I can not find the color “Surf’s Up!” from the Finger Paints collection. It makes me sad too because it was my favorite of all colors…period. :(
