FingerPaints A Pair Affair by All Lacquered Up.

How cool is it that my beauty blogging friend, fellow Ohio gal (I grew up in Ohio) and superstar nail blogger Michelle Mismas from All Lacquered Up just created her very own nail polish collection? I can only imagine the fun Michelle had while working with Sally Beauty and their FingerPaints brand of polish to create A Pair Affair. What a dream! From concept to color, Michelle had her hand in it all. This is her collection.

Michelle told me, "Even before Sally Beauty approached me to create the collection, I was thinking how much I would love for a nail polish brand to come out with duos. Since I never wear just one color and my readers often ask me for color pairing suggestions, when the opportunity with FingerPaints came about, it seemed like fate."

A Pair Affair is a six piece collection, consisting of three perfectly coordinated pairs.

  • Our Tips Are Tealed  &  Bare No Secrets
  • Sarong, So Right  &  You Yacht to Know Better
  • Sage It Ain’t So  &  A Grape Catch 

I asked Michelle which shade was her absolute favorite. "Of course I love all the shades but Our Tips Are Tealed is a standout. Its sparkle factor is insane! Though I would have to say that my favorite duo is You Yacht To Know Better and Sarong So Right. I love a smoky blue and paired with a poppy coral, it has a cool, nautical feel. I like to wear it in a chevron moon manicure with Sarong at the base. It's a fun twist on such a classic, art deco design." Here is a photo from Michelle wearing that pair and design.

I definitely want Our Tips Are Tealed & Bare No Secrets. Michelle was wearing Our Tips Are Tealed when I spent time with her last month, and I've longed for it ever since. The colors in the collection all look so beautiful, but those two shades are calling me.
