I've always been a sucker for bright greens. Back in the 80's, it was that godawful neon green that was always paired with neon pink and black...ahhhh, those were the days! These days, we have plenty of greens to choose from, from olive and duochrome antiqued green (see Chanel's Peridot) to grass green glitters (which I'll be doing soon) to brilliant lime green. Today, it's the latter that I chose to go with in the form of Finger Paints Guggen I'm Lime.
Guggen I'm Lime is a vivid, yellow-based lime green infused with shimmer. The shimmer in this one is not glittery, but rather the pearly type. The overall effect of the color is a pearlescent yellow lime that fairly glows when applied:
Although I fell in love with this color in the bottle, it got to be a bit overwhelming on my fingertips. Glowing nails really isn't my thing, so I'm going to be leaving this one to my daughters.
Finger Paints polishes in general, however, are very nice. Sold at Sally Beauty Supply, the bottle is large, the brush is a decent size that does a good job of walking the line between being to small to give decent coverage and too large to handle, and the formula is one of my favorites. Finger Paints are thick enough that you can typically get opacity with only two coats, yet they are very rarely gloppy. The polish always dries fairly quickly, but gives you enough time to get a nice, even coat. In a word, they are easy. Easy to wear, easy to apply.
Bottom Line: While I'll be back for more of the great Finger Paints colors due to the exceptional formula, good price point ($4.99...hello?!) and ease of use, Guggen I'm Lime just isn't my shade. Off to the girlies it goes!!
