Funky Fingers’ Riot

16 Feb

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.

FFriot1This 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.

Cult Nails’ Fetish

15 Feb

Cult Nails. I have joined the cult when I bought a lot (9 to be exact) last week. I have heard great things about Cult Nails. When they had their sale, I knew it was time for me to buy some. I finally got my order in the mail few days ago. The very first Cult Nails polish I had wanted to try was Fetish. According to the Cult Nails’ website, it describes Fetish as a “wax look finish black polish perfect for the rockstar in all of us.” After trying this on, the description given was perfect for what it is.
My dear friends, this is hands down my all-time favorite black polish now. Do you know why? Not only because of its “look-at-me-I-am-a-rock-star waxy like finish, but because this is … ready? ONE COAT! That’s right girls (and boys). This is ONE COAT to perfect opacity! You’re probably reading this and going sweet Jesus mother of god; a black polish that’s a one coater?! It’s true. I couldn’t believe how amazing Fetish is and I can’t stop starting at its awesomeness. Here’s a close up.
