|Finger Paints Special Effects Motley|
All of the Special Effects play to their best advantage over darker colors; they each do very well over black, but I really wanted to emphasize the blue shimmer of Motley so I used two coats over a single coat of Essie Midnight Cami. I was going to take a shot of just that base but it seemed so boring on its own (plus I was pressed for time.) Motley has shimmers of mostly blue with minty green highlights. Unlike Flashy, which seemed to show its highlight colors nearer the edges of my nails, Motley has them at the center. I also didn't notice a complete shift in color if the direction of the light changed as I did with Flashy, although I can't explain why that would be. Not that I'm disappointed! I like that the color changes are limited to blues and greens and weren't unexpectedly changing to, say, bronze or brass as I moved my hands around. Two coats of Motley and a single top coat of Seche Vite turned my fingertips into lapis lazuli.

Now to decide which colors to layer the other Special Effects over...
Stay tuned for our special give-away of these fabulous polishes!
UPDATE: I found a box of pre-saturated remover pads at Sally Beauty Supply. The felt is actually white even though the one on the box is red. Still works the same.
