Finger Paints Pop Movement Summer 2014
*press sample* *affiliate links*
Per Finger Paints, the Pop Movement collection is a “customizable collection of color popping hues.” The colors and glitter are the embodiment of the 1950s Pop Art movement. One famous Pop Art movement example is Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup Cans painting. I’m not an art history major, but Pop Art to me is an amalgamation of popular culture (such as distinctive advertisement) and bright colors.
Art Deco Pink (2 coats): Neon pink watermelon jelly
Ka-Pow (over Art Deco): Red, black pink and white hexagonal glitter in a clear base. Very Minnie Mouse.
Kitchy Tangerine (2 coats): Neon orange jelly
Kozmotology (over Kitchy Tangerine): Baby blue, black, red, light green and yellow hexagonal glitter in a clear base.
Paper Mache (2 coats): White crème
Three’s A Party (over Paper Mache): Pastel blue, orange, green, yellow and red glitter in a clear base.
I see a lot of Roy Lichtenstein in this collection. The bold colors in the glitter make me think of the distinct dots and texture seen in his comic strip-influenced artwork.
To be honest, I’m not personally impressed by the glitters. The color combinations are interesting but I’m a bit tired of standard hexagonal glitter in a clear base. This could be improved by varying the size (and maybe shapes) of the glitter mix.
The base colors are the stand out in the collection. If you don’t have a basic white, Paper Mache is a great pick. It’s the perfect canvas to let the graphic colors in the glitter to shine.
I can’t sing the praises of Art Deco Pink and Kitchy Tangerine enough. These are fabulous, easy-to-apple, must-have neon jelly awesome bombs. If you are a jelly fiend like me, you need these in your life.
Overall…skip the glitter and buy the jellies. Finger Paints’ Pop Movement is limited edition, so pick them up before they’re gone! They are all on sale for $4, right now at Sally Beauty Supply!
