Finger Paints Picnic In The Park Swatches

Hey guys! Happy Monday! Today’s post is on a collection I’ve had for a month or so now but didn’t get around to it until yesterday. Here’s a cute collection from a great brand: Finger Paints Picnic In The Park.

First up is One In A Melon.

Finger Paints One In A Melon

One In A Melon looked kinda red to me just by looking at the bottle but I’m glad it’s actually not. It’s a really dark strawberry pink. The finish on this is super shiny. Formula is good and it dries pretty quick. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next we have Frosty Lemonade.

Up next is You’re So Antsy.

You’re So Antsy is made up of black and white square and hex glitters packed in clear base. This would look good over any of the creme shades in this collection. Formula is good and it dries pretty quick. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Then there’s Sweet Spring.

Sweet Spring is a light pink crème shade with the same shiny finish as One In A Melon and Frosty Lemonade. It struck me as almost being pastel pink but not quite. I think I have a similar shade somewhere in my stash from the same brand. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next we have Grassy Knoll.

Grassy Knoll is a light pink crème shade that I didn’t care for really. It has the same shiny finish as with the other crème shades in the same collection. Formula for this is on the thinner side compared to the other 3 crème shades. It showed slight streaking on the first coat but evened out with another layer. I dinged the bottom of the nail on one side against the wall right before I took these shots. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Lastly, here’s Picnic Basket.

Finger Paints Picnic Basket

Picnic Basket is a pretty glitter shade made up of red and white square glitter. Formula is good but the glitter is more sparse than You’re So Antsy and I ended up having to fish and dab the glitters out onto my nails. Shown is one coat with no top coat

Overall? Not bad. The formula is pretty decent overall. I wish that I didn’t have to fish out the glitter pieces in Picnic Basket but it’s a pretty common thing with glitter shades from many other brands.

These should be available in Sally Beauty Supply stores and online for around $5.99 each or less if it’s on sale.

    I forgot about this collection. I love all the colors but that red and white checkerboard glitter is my favorite. This is such a cute themed set, even down to the ants! Thanks for the post. I know what my next mani is going to be now.

    • The 2 glitters in this collection are pretty neat to have. I love how glossy the crème shades are. I’m very impressed with that!
