FingerPaints Peace, Love & Color Collection Part 1

FingerPaints has come out with a bright new collection for the summer, called Peace, Love & Color. I was quite looking forward to these pretties, but they turned out to be a little bit of a disappointment for me. I'm just not feeling them. They are plenty attractive I suppose but they just aren't my cup of tea.

Outta Sight Orange is medium orange with pink and silvery glass fleck shimmer glitter in it. I was thinking I would like this but I'm not crazy about it. I have a few other similar colors that I like better. This is two coats.
I also had high hopes for Psychedelic Sunshine but it turned out pretty terrible. A light daisy yellow with gold and holographic glitter? Sounds awesome but the formula was awful. The texture is so thick that it feels like glue and it is also really sheer. This is two coats and that's all I could manage dealing with. Ugh, too bad.
All You Need is Color looked really exciting from the promo pictures I saw, but I was dismayed when I realized it was just a straight glitter lacquer. I really don't care for plain glitter in clear polish, but it's a personal preference, you might love them. It wasn't terribly hard to make this opaque but it was difficult to make it level out evenly. I imagine you'd have to use a lot of topcoat. I also imagined this more blue rather than teal *shrug* I hear it's a dupe for Butter London's Henley Regatta.
Part 2 coming at you soon with the next three from this collection so stay tuned!


  1. I do like the orange, but the other two are kinda blah..

  2. The orange and yellow remind me of others...maybe the Color Club summer collection? Bummer that the formula is blah. I have not found a true orange or yellow that looks right on me yet, but I really want to!

  3. Oh, too bad about All You Need is Color! I was hoping that was going to be turquoise glitter in a blackened teal base. Booo!

  4. These are all pretty but do look like all the rest of the collections.

  5. this looks amazing!

  6. I might have to get the turquoise one just so I can do that comparison to Henley Regatta.

  7. The texture that was the worst for me was the green glitter. Different batches maybe? Yellow was thick too, but workable. It looks so pretty in the bottle but its awesomeness isn't the same on the nail. :(
