I was at Sally’s the other day and needed some new black nail polish. I have some old Avon black polish, but it takes approximately 6 coats to reach opacity and is often uneven, has the world’s tiniest brush and is pretty much useless. I’m sure I got it way cheap, but really… was it worth the hassle? I thought not. So while I was at Sally’s I saw all the Finger Paint brand polishes. They are supposed to be made by OPI and come in a wide variety of colors. I believe I got mine for around $4 and the color I chose was Black Expressionism.
What I Liked:
- The handle of the brush is long and tapered. It fit well in my hand and was comfortable to use. The brush is standard, but soft and makes application easy.
- This is the most pigmented polish I have ever seen! The formula is quite thick but not bad thick, and it coated to opacity easily in one coat.
What I HATED!!!!
- I polished my nails at about 5-6 o’clock. At about 7 or so I ate dinner, then washed a few dishes (nothing too crazy where I was scrubbing using a scouring pad or anything, although I did use a scratchy sponge, no different than I ever do though) and by the time I was done with dishes my nails looked like this:
UGHHH!!!!!!!!!! This was the worst nail polish I have ever tried!! It will be a LONG time before I try FP again, which is sad because I loved the color density and I like the bottles (although they’re a little tall). Maybe my nails just don’t play well with this brand but it was a major disappointment. 😦
