FingerPaints Poolside Paradise Collection

Happy Saturday, you guys! This week has been super busy, and I'm glad it's finally the weekend. I look forward to much relaxation and the time to read J. K. Rowling's new mystery The Silkworm. I loved the first book in her mystery series and have been eagerly awaiting this second one. Nothing makes me happier than curling up with a great book. :)


Today, I've got a fantastic collection to show you. FingerPaints' Poolside Paradise Collection is comprised of six bright shades in shimmery, glass fleck finishes. (Glass fleck, I say!) As soon as I saw this collection, I knew it was made for me, and it does not disappoint!


Hula Aruba!
Hula Aruba! is bright golden yellow with a shimmery glass fleck finish. There's a subtle flash of green in the yellow that shows at unexpected moments and it's totally fascinating. This has an impressive formula, especially taking into consideration that it's a yellow. The consistency is great, with each coat building up good coverage. The flecks are a little chunkier than usual (more foil-y) so they cover better and are sparklier. I used three coats for the swatches. This is one of my favs from the collection. I absolutely love this color and will be wearing it often during the summer and beyond.

Aloha Lei
Aloha Lei is a juicy orange with golden shimmers in a glass fleck finish. This looks so bright and sparkly on the nails, great for this time of the year. I used three coats for the swatches.

Be My Baby
Be My Baby is a bright magenta pink with gold and pink shimmers in a glass fleck finish. This is so vibrant and intense on the nails, totally gorgeous! The formula has great coverage, needing just two easy coats for opacity.

Margarita Mambo
Margarita Mambo is a bright apple green with gold and green shimmers in a glass fleck finish. The base has a little bit of blue which nicely balances out the golden shimmers in there. This is the only one in the collection where the formula lacks good coverage. I used three not-too-thin coats for the swatches, and there's still some sheerness at that.

Wild Bikini
Wild Bikini is a rich purple with purple and blue shimmers in a glass fleck finish. Its base is a little more dominant and opaque, so the shimmers look more muted—though still prominent and sparkly—compared to the others in the collection. I used two coats for the swatches.

Surf's Up
Surf's Up is a bright cerulean blue with blue shimmers in a glass fleck finish. It's one of those amazingly intense blues, and I can't get over how gorgeously glowly it is on the nails! I used two coats in the swatches.

Overall, I'm absolutely wow-ed by this collection. What a stunning set of colors, and their brightness is perfect for summer. This is definitely one of my favorite collections this summer! I love all the colors, but if I had to pick favorites, I would say Hula Aruba!, Be My Baby, and Surf's Up for the intensity of those shades. :)

How are you guys liking this collection? Which are your favorites and will be joining your stash?

    1. Hi Gosia, I'm glad you like these! I can't get over how gorgeous this collection is. :) Yes, her new mystery just came out, about a week ago. Did you read her first mystery, The Cuckoo's Calling? If so and you liked it, then you must get to reading The Silkworm. :)

  12. Hi Yun - beautiful pictures, wonderful post and nearly impossible to choose a favorite - luckily it is unavailable for me so I can easily pick 4 out of 6 shades - all of then except the yellow and orange but not because I would not love their colors but simply they clash with my skin tone ;-)! Have a fantastic day. My dear friend <3
