Nail Polish of the Day: Finger Paints Lilac Lagoon

Fingerpaints Lilac Lagoon nail polish

Fingerpaints Summer 09 collection

Hope your having a wonderful Saturday afternoon. Today's nail polish of the day is a gorgeous lilac from Finger Paints Sunburst summer collection. 

Lilac Lagoon, a semi sheer, juicy lilac loaded with flecks of goldish copper glitter. Since the texture is a semi sheer jelly, I needed four coats to achieve bottle color.

The Brand. You don't hear too much coverage on Finger Paints, but I definitely love the brand as a whole. Perhaps some of the colors aren't as unique as I'd like, but overall the quality is fab.

Finger Paints are available at Sally Beauty Supply stores and retail around $4.99/ea. Have a great weekend!

Lilac is a nice color for the summer. I like the shimmer in this one. Pretty.

The more pics I see of this...the more I really want to buy it. It looks so pretty & reminds me slightly of a favorite of mine...China Glaze No Way Jose!

I love Finger Paints! But are they new color really faint? Why so many coats?

Hi Denny, It's a perfect color for summer! :) Hi Amanda, You def should get it!! :) The four coats is kinda a pain, but it's def worth it! Hi Kim, It really depends. Most Fingerpaints colors aren't as sheer as this one. Lilac Lagoon is really the only faint one in the summer collection :)

OMG! I just picked this up last night and did it as my NOTD today. I was wondering if this was part of a new collection or not. I guess not knowing pertinant nail polish info happens when you dont keep up to date on all the blogs.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
