Good Morning Polished People,
Does it ever seem like there’s a crew of us nail bloggers and we all just look at eachother’s swatches and nail art? I wonder how many people visiting my site do not have a nail blog and are just readers. In the comments below make sure to let me know. I think it’s awesome that we all are so into nail polish and the community aspect of blogging that we all visit eachother’s and leave comments and have conversations via the comments and Twitter, etc, I just think it’s funny. Believe me I’m not saying this in a negative way at all- that’s the whole reason I have a blog! It’s the best thing about it!! My husband is always like “Who’s Cynthia?” when he reads over my shoulder as I’m checking comments, etc (PS does anyone in the history of the universe like people reading over their shoulder? I don’t care if it’s a recipe, it annoys the heck outta me!) and I say, “She’s another nail blog lady…” and he’ll say, “So you’re telling me that you read her blog, she reads yours, you both comment.. sometimes on the same nail polishes on each of your blogs..?” Yep, pretty much!! Haha. I probably have about 10-15 people/blogs I communicate with pretty regularly and then of course all the sporadic comments/etc but for the most part they’re all other nail bloggers or soon-t0-be nail bloggers (you know who you are ;)). It’s very cyclical and interesting to me. And I LOVE it!! I don’t even know if I’m making sense. Let’s just look at today’s polish!
Finger Paints Circus Peanuts
Circus Peanuts is, from what I hear, exactly the same color as circus peanuts which I guess are candy…? They’re those weird foam-y looking, soft, oversized peanut candies. I have never tried them but Lesley (you can follow her on Twitter here) was telling me about them a while back. I still need to try them just to say I have. Anyway- the color is a super light peach/orange sherbet color that’s just a tad pinker, and a bit lighter in real life than they showed up in these photos. It’s very light and almost a nude-ish color. I LOVE IT! As soon as I put this on I was tweeting pics like crazy cuz I was in love.
Non-problematic. Opaque in 2 coats or 1 super-careful one. I like 3 coats. Dries quick and shiny. I have been nothing but impressed with Finger Paints. They’re sold at Sally Beauty Supple for around 4-5 bucks and don’t forget- you get a discount with your Sally Beauty Supply card.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
YES, PLEASE!! I love this color, I’m so glad Lesley told me about it and when it runs out, I’m getting another. I thought this was another super-flattering color in real life and I was just so surprisingly impressed with it. It looked kinda weird in the bottle so I wasn’t sure at first. It reminded me of orange sherbet-flavored Pepto Bismol. Do they even make that? I don’t know. But if they did- it would be this color for sure. It’s so much better looking on the nail than in the bottle so if you see it and are put off by it, still give it a try. You’re gonna love it! Unless you’re super super pale.. then it might not be so great… you’ll have to use your judgement.
Have you tried the real circus peanuts? What do they even taste like?? And do you have this polish? It’s a nice color for summertime. Tan skin loves a color like this. What do you all have planned for this summer? I’d love to hear! Till next time, thanks for reading and- Happy Polishing!!
PS: Don’t forget to tell me if you have a blog of your own or if you just like to read others’ nail blogs. We all know it’s rude to leave links to your blog in comments, but for today- go ahead and do it. Let’s see how many of us blog readers are bloggers ourselves!
