First Look – FingerPaints “A Pair Affair” by All Lacquered Up

Today I’m thrilled to share with you a first look at the nail polish collection I created for Sally Beauty, FingerPaints “A Pair Affair” by All Lacquered Up. Three duos of on-trend shades for multi-colored manicures, manicure-pedicure combos, and nail art.

I shared that the collection would include a green, a glass-fleck sage to be exact, partnered with a glass-fleck purple (more of a blurple). Well now you can see that the other duos consist of a sparkly teal with a glittering sand and a sultry, smoky blue shimmer with a rainbow glitter-packed coral jelly.

Color names (clockwise from top): Our Tips Are Tealed (teal), Bare No Secrets (sand), Sarong So Right (coral), You Yacht To Know Better (blue), Sage It Ain’t So (green), A Grape Catch (purple).

I’m so truly proud of how the collection turned out and I can’t wait to show you swatches and my favorite ways to wear the duos.

Thank you everyone for your supportive comments and tweets. It makes me even more excited to know that you are all along for this ride and cheering me on. You are the best!

The FingerPaints A Pair Affair by All Lacquered Up collection will launch in September 2013. FingerPaints nail polishes retail for $5.29/ea.

    Our Tips are Tealed.

  2. These look gorgeous! Looking forward to meeting you tonight! =)

  3. Jo says:

    I can’t wait to try Sarong So Right and A Grape Catch!

  4. Regina says:

    They all look really cool! I can’t wait to see the combo of the teal and sand…and the coral and blue! Congrats on this opportunity!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thank you Regina! I love the sand. I find it’s a really wearable version of tan that flatters a lot of skin tones.

  5. Rach says:

    The name “Sarong So Right” made me laugh like a hyena, so good job. ;) Excited to see Our Tips Are Tealed, and looking forward to swatches!

  6. Beth says:

    I love a grape catch

  7. TamTam says:

    These pairings are so pretty! I wish I had the orange/blue pair when I was in high school…those were our school colors!
    If I were to choose one pair, I most want to try the green/purple duo

  8. Becky says:

    My first thought was just based off seeing the image on your facebook post…”aw crud, I’m going to have to have all of those.” I love the pairing of the colors, the teal and sand combo is my favorite. I thought I had enough teal polishes, but Our Tips are Tealed is a must have.

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Haha, thanks Becky. Apologize to your wallet for me. And you can never have enough teals ;)

  9. Aprill says:

    I love the nude and emerald. Very gorgeous!

  10. Jackie S. says:

    Great collection of colors, nice job!

  11. Phyrra says:

    The teal, purple and tan are must have shades to me

  12. cori says:

    Congrats on the collection and partnership with Sallys. Can’t wait to get A Grape Catch and Bare No Secrets.

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thank you Cori! I love the finish on A Grape Catch. The picture doesn’t really convey the sparkle level of it or Bare No Secrets.

  13. You yacht to know better is a perfect blue!! Congrats on the collection :)

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thank you Nadine! It took a lot of work to get that shade of blue correct. It was so worth the effort.

  14. Chris says:

    Our Tips are Sealed and Bare No Secrets are going to be mine!

  15. JCz says:

    Hi Kelly,
    Congrats on the collection! It’s so beautiful, I can’t wait to see the swatches and how they’re paired up. I particularly like the dark colors (teal, blue, sage), but the sand looks tempting too. You should be so proud of yourself, this is a truly spectacular accomplishment and I hope you get to fully enjoy it!

  16. rach says:

    Coral/blue! Teal/sand! Green/purple! You expect me to be able to choose here? No way, I’m most looking forward to seeing all of them! :D

  17. Medusa says:

    I’m very excited! How cool! I can’t wait to see these 2 swatched: Sarong So Right (coral) & You Yacht To Know Better (blue). I think they are a great color combination! P.S. Did you come up with these polish names, or did Sally Beauty?

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thank you! I gathered some highly creative friends and a few bottles of wine to come up with the names.

  18. Tori says:

    So pretty! Great work coming up with these gorgeous looking colors :)

  19. Delphi says:

    I’m in love with most of these colors…to the point I’ve already budgeted their purchase in for September. Great, great job with the colors and finishes! Curious though: are they coming packaged in sets of two in the color combinations showed? If yes, is there a way to pick which two colors we want together or even buy them separately? If there is no other option than to buy them as pairs, what will they cost (as you said, they’re usually around $5.29/bottle)? Thank you, Delphi

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Hi Delphi! I’m so glad you like them. I created the collection as duos but they will be sold individually. While I envisioned them being worn together, you have the option to just buy one shade.

  20. MarciaF says:

    Great names. Is the price $5.29 for the pair or for each?

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      That’s the price per polish. They aren’t sold as duos, just created to be worn together.

  21. Sharon says:

    I love the names of these polishes! So cute!

    My favorite pair is the sand and teal, but they’re all really pretty.

  22. Julia Tirres says:

    I am on my way to Sally’s! I love them all.

  23. I want them ALL! But I really Love Bare no Secrets and sarong so right and grape catch and They look AMAZING and Congrats!
    Kinda Perfect for late summer, early fall!
    I hope to go buy them when they come out!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thanks Pam! They aren’t really attached to a season but you make a great point. They are great transitional shades.

  24. Butterdaisy says:

    I love them all and must have them all. I just can’t pick a fave but Sarong so Right really caught my eye. All the names are just adorable! Perfect perfect collection and I already know the quality of Finger Paints so I know application will be a dream. Can’t wait to get them. 8-)

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thanks! I had help from friends in naming the colors and I’m glad you like them.

  25. Pam says:

    Lovely duos! I will need to see them in-person (of course), but I am prepared to go nuts over Our Tips Are Tealed and Bare No Secrets!

  26. Jenn says:

    A Grape Catch! Sally Hansen is the only other brand of not Essie/OPI/Indy polish that I will buy!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thanks! Though the brand is FingerPaints sold at Sally Beauty stores. People often confuse Sally Beauty and Sally Hansen.

      • Jenn says:

        NO, I wasn’t confused. Just saying it’s normally the only other brand I buy that buy.

        However, I am learning to branch out a bit. Just been sorely disappointed and burned!

        • Michelle Mismas says:

          Oh cool. I’ve had a few of my friends get confused between Sally Hansen and Sally Beauty so I just wanted to make sure.

  27. Julia says:

    I’m absolutely in love with the teal and the blue. But seeing as half my collection is blue and green, that’s hardly surprising! Thanks for all your hard work in making these polishes. They are all so beautiful.

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thank you! Obviously we have very similar taste as I have two Helmers filled with blue, teal & green.

  28. Debbie Spence says:

    These all look amazing! I don’t own any FingerPaints, but I might have to look into these at my SallyBeauty when they come out.

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thanks! You should definitely check out the brand, in general. They have a diverse color range and great formula.

  29. NailPolishFan says:

    You came up with a really beautiful collection. That blue and orange are to die for! I hope you come out with another collection. Best wishes!

  30. Rebecca Russell says:

    Wow! They are all so gorgeous and totally “me” colors. Congrats! I will be keeping an eye out for these for sure.

  31. Debbie says:

    I really love that they’re all shimmers/glass flecked!! I’m not so big on cremes!

  32. Katy M says:

    I’m so excited about the glass flecks! It’s (one of) my favorite finish(es). :) how exciting! I’ll be stalking my Sally’s!
