I was lucky enough to win the Gumdrops & Lollipops collection from FingerPaint's Facebook page a couple of weeks ago. I was so excited when they arrived because they are so bright and cheery! Just great for summer!
I am not usually a pastel fan... and I tend to go for shimmers and glitters over creams... but I adore this collection! There are four creams and two shimmers. Let's get to the swatches!
Pop Rock Pink: I swoon for this one! The formula is a little watery... this is 3 coats. It probably could use 4. I did have a little problem with cuticle flooding on the first nail, but I got used to it and didn't have another problem.
Circus Peanuts: I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I am definitely not a peach person, and this is a very "peachy" cream. Once again, I had a bit of an issue with flooding, but this formula was easier to work with than Pop Rock Pink. This is two coats.
Lemon Sour: Great summer color. Not much to say. It didn't blow my mind, but I did enjoy it! This is two coats.
Choco Mint: This is a beautiful mint green. Surprisingly enough, I do not really have any mint greens in my collection... I'm not sure why! This makes a very nice addition. Again, two coats were applied.
Blue Raspberry Tart: I have one thing to say to you. BASE COAT BASE COAT BASE COAT! I had it on for literally 5 minutes without a base, and it stained my nail and cuticles to the max. I am REALLY glad I swatched this last or I would've had smurf cuticles for the rest of the swatches! Hahaha... Anyways, the color is very neon and bright. It's a lot of fun! This is my best friends favorite of the collection (of course, she wasn't the one with smurf cuticles :p). This is 2 coats.
Grape Gumball: This is my favorite of the collection. It is a spunky purple with just the right amount of shimmer! It applied like a dream and was perfect in two coats.
I enjoyed this collection very much. Other than the watery formula (which I have found with most of my FingerPaints), it is definitely a worthwhile collection to add to your hoard. Did I say hoard? I meant very reasonable collection of nail polishes ;)
