Rainbow Favorites: Day 1 - Red featuring FingerPaints Primary Color

Bec at Lacquered Dreams proposed a simple and fun challenge for this coming week; a rainbow of our favorite polishes, one for each day starting with red! So this week I'll be sharing with you a Roy G. Bpp of colors - a mix of untrieds, indies, and favorites. A Roy G. Bpp you say? Yes - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink. Today is my favorite red - FingerPaints 'Primary Color' with accent fingers of Wet n Wild 'Everybody Loves Redmond'.

I do love FingerPaints Primary Color! It is one of the first reds I bought when I started collecting polish approximately a year ago, and I clearly remember being like "ah, I do need a good red in my collection!". Primary Color is almost a crelly red because it seems very squishy on the nail, and not truly creamy like most crèmes - but it covered well in two easy coats. I would assume this is a blue based red, and maybe a little dark to be a “standard true red” for someone’s collection, but it remains one of my favorites.

I really hate the brushes on this sub-brand of Wet n Wild polishes! They add streaks and really mess up the application for me because the brush is all scragly and the 'hairs' are really large and plastic-y. Ah well, it's a great buy for someone looking for a fun new squishy red for $2. This is a really orange-red color and similar to the other one in this post, more of a crelly type of finish? Very squishy and a smidgen of vnl at two coats.

To top it off, I layered one coat of Candy Lacquer ‘Dark Hearts’ over my red fingerbits. Lately I’ve been picking glitters that match their base color too well, so the pretty glitter just gets lost and looks lumpy - sad times. Unfortunately, this is one of those cases and the hearts were really hidden on the FingerPaints fingers. I was pleasantly surprised with the application on this polish tho; I didn't have to dig or fish for the hearts at all, and I got at least one heart on every finger. I use the 'dabble' method for application on glitters, and I did poke stray pieces down with an orange stick because I like things to be smooth.

Thanks for looking! I'm really excited about this challenge this week, and it has re-inspired me to get through my untrieds and my massive stash. Please check out the other ladies participating in this rainbow challenge!
