FingerPaints Gumdrops & Lollipops Collection

Hidey ho everyone :) Today I have to show you the newest collection from FingerPaints, the nail polish brand exclusive to Sally Beauty Supply. The group is called Gumdrops & Lollipops, which instantly brings images of my childhood and playing Candy Land to my mind haha. I like the pastel shades intermingling with brights idea, very Spring.

First up is Blue Raspberry Taffy. It's a bright blue cream, along the lines of the Airhead candy. Opaque and almost chalky, in that mod realm. This is three coats because the formula is not fab. It's rather streaky and thick, actually all of these are. I do like this color and would wear it again.

Here is Lemon Sour, a pale canary yellow cream. Another formula I'm not happy with, thick and streaky.  This is three coats.

Next is Pop Rock Pink. I love this polish, even though it is thick as a mofo. Jelly bright poppy pink with micro glass flecks. Very pretty in real life, hard to translate in a photo. Three coats again, just to build it up since it's a jelly. Key is to apply thin coats and wait for them to dry in between so you don't end up with a mess.

Here is Choco Mint, a delicious shade and a yummy ice cream flavor! This actually turned out to be more blue than I expected, but it still qualifies as mint green. I have a million of this color, and I definitely have some that apply better. Three coats here as well, because of streaks.

Next is Grape Gumball. I don't think of this as a grape, more of a blurple. I like the glass flecks in this and it was the nicest formula in the bunch. Two coats.

Last is Circus Peanuts. When I unpacked these guys, I thought this one was a gonner, as I saw melon color all over the box and other polishes. Fortunately it hadn't broken, just leaked because the lid wasn't on tight. *phew* I hate the candy circus peanuts, they're disgusting and just blech. Fortunately I do like this color, it's just that these pale orange creams don't look great on me. Idk why but that's the way it is. This is two coats.

Overall I like the idea of this collection but not the execution. FingerPaints sell for $4.99 each at Sally Beauty Supply stores and on www.sallybeauty.com.

  5. Pretty colors, but I'm not a fan of the bright, chalky looking cremes. I may have to get the glass fleck jellies though. They are beautiful!
