Finger Paints Summer in the City is a new six-piece collection featuring mostly bright pops of color in various finishes.
As far as formula, there were a couple small issues. A few of the creme shades were really thick and gloopy on the wand. Both of the blue polishes (To-Teally Hot and Late Night Rendez-vouz) immediately dyed my nails blue, and wouldn’t completely come off. That’s actually fairly typical for me and super pigmented blue nail polish. Most of the Finger Paints blue shades dye my nails more than most other brands for some reason!
Sexy Sundress is a bright lime green/yellow creme. This isn’t a dupe for OPI Who The Shrek Are you? though. That one is a little more subdued and less lime, more pea green. This is brighter. This was one of the really thick gloopy ones, but the color is nice nonetheless. My coats were too thick her, and you can see some areas where it doesn’t lay flat. This was still three coats despite the thickness.
Beach Bound is a deep royal purple creme. Pretty shade, nice formula and covered in two coats. Nothing that unique though.
Flip Flop Fuchsia
Flip Flop Fuchsia is a bright fuchsia pink creme. Very shiny and pretty pink shade. Covered nicely in two coats, but again, nothing we haven’t seen before.
To-Teally Hot is a teal creme. This leans towards the blue side a little more than green. This was the other one with a really thick sticky formula but it worked out. This was two coats. I always love any teal.
Movie In The Park
Movie In The Park is a purple and blue glitter. The base color is a pale purple and it’s packed with purple and blue round micro-glitter. This was thin and easy to apply if you wait a bit in-between coats. It nearly covers my nail line in three coats, but not quite.
Late Night Rendez-vouz
Late Night Rendez-vouz is a deep blue metallic shimmer. The shimmer is a little green/yellow so you almost get a duochrome effect. It looks more apparent in real life than in this photo. Nice even coverage, smooth formula and this was two coats.
Overall: I liked all the shades here, but a few were ones I have seen repeats of many times. My favorites were Sexy Sundress and To-Teally Hot.
