FingerPaints Enchanted Mermaid Collection


Hello, butterflies! Today, I'd like to share FingerPaints' Enchanted Mermaid collection. Their press release states the following:

"FingerPaints Enchanted Mermaid Collection is a LIMITED EDITION underworld inspired textured nail collection with 4 sailor-seducing shades. You will fall victim to the temptress effect of this innovative nail collection! The alluring fish scale texture is available in multi-tone shades that shimmer and shift like the friendly underwater creatures. After 2-3 coats you will see the full effect morph! This collection is so unique and eye-catching you are sure to be enchanted!"

However, I did not actually see this press release until after I received the four bottles for review.  When I initially saw bottle pics online, I was SUPER-EXCITED to try these polishes.  The colors themselves are GORGEOUS.  Here's a peek:

Stunning, right?  They are, from left to right, Sailor's Lure, Tails of Love, Underwater Enchantress and Sea Temptress

However, when I applied them, again, not having seen the press release beforehand, I was shocked by the texture, which appears as below:

From thumb to pinky: Sailor's Lure, Tails of Love, Underwater Enchantress, Sea Temptress, Sailor's Lure, two coats of each.

Rut roh!  I was sorely disappointed with the chunky, textured finish on these.  I've had them on for almost 24 hours now and I just can't get into the texture at all.  It's rough and just not my taste.  Such a bummer.  I would LOVE to see FingerPaints release these four colors in a traditional finish because they got the colors exactly right, just stunning.  But, unfortunately, I don't see myself wearing these often.  

The polishes used in this post were provided to me for my honest review and consideration.
