I went to Five Below earlier today with my children. I had promised them they could each pick out one item from the store. I couldn’t help but look at the nail polishes at Five Below. I *LOVE* the Funky Fingers polishes they carry. It’s very awesome considering how cheap they are! They’re $2 each or 3 for $5 at Five Below! I have several of them at home (Mermaid Lagoon is one of my favorites!). I have had a positive experience with Funky Fingers’ glitter polishes. So I’m there, looking through the bins and I spied a purple one! I love all things purple. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to swatch this one. This is Funky Fingers’ Riot.
This shade of purple lies somewhere between a blurple to a deep dark neon type of purple. Riot is such a lovely shade in person. Picture shown is two coats without any type of top coat. It dries to a flat finish. Its finish looks kind of rubbery or wax-like. I love it!! It reminds me so much of China Glaze’s Creative Fantasy from the Cirque du Soleil collection. However this is a darker purple than the Creative Fantasy one. Here’s some close-ups.
Isn’t this hue of purple really nice?! I cannot stop staring at it! I also cannot believe that cheap polishes can be soo beautiful!!
I want to hurry back to Five Below and snatch up every other color they have in hopes there may be more of these type of rubber finish polishes. Would I recommend this? Yes. Opacity was reached at 2 coats and there wasn’t any issues with application at all. You would love this especially if you’re a purple lover and/or a rubber finish nail polish lover. These polishes are also 3-free (which is another bonus in my book!) I give this polish 4.5 out of 5 stars!
I have actually picked up some extra Funky Fingers (including another bottle of Riot) for some of my international nail mail buddies that wants these. I found it interesting that Funky Fingers products are produced by Forsythe Cosmetics. Forsythe Cosmetics is the private labeler and owner of Color Club and Art Club.
Unfortunately, Funky Fingers are not available for purchase online. It is only available at Five Below retail stores in the United States. Go to the store locator at http://www.fivebelow.com/ to see if there’s a Five Below near you!
