In high school, my favorite nail polish was a gorgeous teal with blue-green shimmer made by Delux. When I saw Finger Paints nail polish in Art Dealer Teal-er sitting on the shelf at Sally Beauty Supply, I was instantly in love! This shade looked so similar to that long lost Delux nail polish; I snatched it up! Although it is not a match to the Delux polish, it is a gorgeous teal that is more green than blue; and it has a flashy teal shimmer. Have a look.
I had never used a nail polish by Finger Paints before, so I didn’t know what to expect. First off, the formula was very thin. Yet, inexplicably, each coat took forever to dry! After 2 coats there were brush strokes, streaks and the polish was still semi-sheer in places; see the picture above. I applied a third coat, which fixed up the sheerness, but took about an hour to dry. Not good. I’m on the fence about this brand still.
