Finger Paints - Asylum and Essie - Mesmerize

I Love the Blues!
I kept staring at my hands today, counting all the different colors I could see as I twisted and turned my fingers.  It's like a hologram went through a blender and landed on my fingers...

Essie - Mesmerize, One coat
  Finger Paints - Asylum, One coat
Base: Sally Hansen Quick Care Growth Treatment
Top: NYC - Grand Central Station
Mesmerize was one of the first polishes where I said, "I want this one.  Specifically this one." It's one of the only two polishes I've paid a full $8 for, but I really love this vivid shade of blue.  Plus, it's a one coat wonder! I forgot to take photos of it alone, though...

As for Asylum, I love how subtle it is.  When I tried Essie - Shine of the Times, I actually thought it was too dense for my taste.  The bluish purple flakes disappear into Mesmerize in certain lighting, leaving the reddish flakes to glow even greenish at times! Sorry I couldn't capture all of the colors...

Fang's not so into flakies.


  1. Awwww what a pretty puppy!

    I love the combination you used here. That blue is fabulous!

  2. Oh my gosh! Mesmerize is one of my favorite blues, I don't know why I haven't put flakies over it yet! This must happen in my future! So beautiful!

  3. Asylum looks great on that blue! I don't really do Essie brand but i bet I've got a similar blue I can try this with :D Very Nice!
