Finger Paints Poolside Paradise Swatches

Hey guys! Today I have a summer collection that got me pretty excited when I saw them in person. The colors are so pretty and the finish is mesmerizing. Here’s Finger Paints Poolside Paradise Collection.

First up is Wild Bikini.

Finger Paints Wild Bikini

Wild Bikini is a beautiful grape purple. It reminds me of the vibrant deep purple shade that some orchid plants have. It’s vibrant and rich. Formula is a little bit on the watery side, but goes on the nails smoothly. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next is Hula Aruba!

Hula Aruba! is the yellow version of Wild Bikini. It’s a very bright yellow shimmer. Formula is better than Wild Bikini. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next we have Surf’s Up.

Surf’s Up is a bright blue shimmer. The formula is pretty much the same as Hula Aruba! in that it applies very nicely and dries pretty fast. The finish is the same as all shades in this collection as well — like a metallic foil shimmer. Reminds me of something Zoya has been known for in the past few years. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Moving on, we have Margarita Mambo.

Margarita Mambo has the sheerest formula in this entire collection. I actually had to retake these shots because I really didn’t like how it looked with just 2 coats (I did 2 coats for all other shades). It’s a pretty light green shimmer. This has the most watery formula too among all 6 shades, but it evens out with no problem with more coats. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

And lastly, here’s Be My Baby.

Finger Paints Be My Baby

Be My Baby is my favorite shade in this collection. My favorites usually end up being the red shades, but there is none in this collection. This is the closest to it. It’s a very reddish pink shade that’s bold and bright. This glitter shade is different from the previous ones. It has the best formula too; almost opaque with just one coat. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Overall? I originally expected these to be glass flecks but they’re not. Some of them do have that property when looked at in indirect sunlight lighting. The shade with the strongest glass fleck finish is Be My Baby followed by Wild Bikini. These shades should be available in Sally Beauty Supply stores and online for $5.99 each.

  1. I love the purple one! I already have way too many sparkly purple polishes, but I am tempted to pick this one up.

    • The purple surprised me! It’s my second favorite in this set and I was expecting it to be mediocre!
