FingerPaints Psychedelic Sunshine

Also from the Summer 2011 FingerPaints Peace, Love and Color collection is this yellow polish that has micro rainbow glitter called Psychedelic Sunshine.  Now, originally I was pretty much NOT interested in this because I'm not a big yellow fan, but after some buzz on Twitter, I was interested in trying it.  

I used a base of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Psychedelic Sunshine and a top coat of Seche Vite.  The formula was quite thick and gummy and that's why I have heard from others who tried it, so I decided to contact FingerPaints.

Their official statement was that the formula was made thicker to keep the microglitter suspended but you can add some polish thinner to make it easier to manage and it shouldn't affect the quality.  However, if you do add thinner, make sure you mix your polish well because the glitter will probably settle closer to the bottom.

Now I don't know if you're a shaker or a roller, but mixing well for me means a bit of both.  :)

I did NOT add thinner before taking these pictures, so you're dealing with some gumminess.  Also, it was cloudy out (boo!).

Eep sheertown.  I do not like sheer colors.  So what did I do?  Added a base coat of CND Brilliant White first.

You can really see the gumminess on my index finger.

I did take an indoor with flash picture before and after the base of CND.  First the before.

And now the after.
This really shows off the gumminess, but you can also see how much the color brightened up.  It did also swallow some of the glitter, so this was an interesting experiment for me.  I want to play with it some more because this has some amazing potential.
