Hi friends! Today I have a new collection from FingerPaints for you. It is called Once in a Wild and is comprised of six polishes in different finishes. Let me start with the pics.
From thumb to pinky: FingerPaints Vermillion $ Painting, Exotic Emerald, Amazon Sky, Amethyst Accent and Titian Tint (two coats each)

If you're a longtime reader of this blog, you'll know that I tend to be partial to blues and greens. Therefore, you may be surprised to learn that those were actually my least favorites (along with Once in a Wild) in this collection. The formula on these was challenging to work with, very thick and kind of clumpy, and you can probably see in the pics that they did not dry smoothly. I was bummed about that. Vermillion and Amethyst had similar formulas, much smoother, and I preferred those two by a mile. However, the BIGGEST surprise of all, at least to me, was how much I loved Titian Tint. Based on the bottles alone, I had the lowest expectations for this shade but on the nail, wow. It's a gorgeous copper-y color that complimented my pale cool skin tone surprisingly well. Great formula on this one and it could even be a one-coater, epic win! It is, by far, my favorite in the collection. I would love to see FingerPaints make another polish in this formula with a bit more pink to it, like a rose gold. That would be GORGEOUS. (And feel free to incorporate "Kari" into the name. You're welcome.) ;)
