Hey-o, it’s Day 4 of SwatchWeek! Just one more day after this, tomorrow!
Today I have 5 Funky Fingers polishes to show you! Funky Fingers can be found in Five Below stores (if you don’t have a Five Below near you, I weep for you because they’re so incredible. I specifically go in them for their nail polish, and because they sell discounted City Color Cosmetics makeup. Anyways).
One of my friends, Molly, who I can give some credit to for enabling my nail polish addiction, always had Funky Finger nail polishes, and I was so intrigued. So finally, one day when I went into Five Below, I picked up some polishes.
I have 2 polishes that change color in the sunlight, and then 3 of their normal polishes! The Sunlight polishes were 2/$5 while the normal polishes were 3/$5.
Let’s get into the swatches!
First up, the Sunlight polishes. Now, I don’t have actual photos of them after they’ve changed in the sun – winter gray daylight makes that difficult, but I have personally seen them change! It’s something so cool for such a low price.
First up is ‘Free Spirit’. This is a bright sky blue cream, that transitions to a darker, more dusty toned blue in the sun. This was 3 coats, and up close, you can still see some streaks. But it is a brighter, more neon polish so that’s to be expected. It was still a lovely formula, very easy to control. This is one of those polishes that makes my pale skin look a little less pale, so I can’t complain.
The other sunlight polish is called ‘Vibe with Me’. This is a dark, blue-toned purple jelly formula that darkens up in the sun. Since it is a jelly formula, this was 3 coats, and you can still see a little of the nail line on my ring finger. Not my favorite formula, but the color is so rich and juicy.
Now onto the 3 normal polishes.
First is ‘Bizerk Turq’. This is a bright, neon mint green cream color. I ended up loving this polish so much. It does require 3 coats, with a little thicker of coats to cover streaks, but the formula is so easy to apply, and that color, unf, so I didn’t mind. And you know, it also makes me look tanner, a plus in the sunless winter. It’s so bright in real life in well.
Next is ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’. This is a shimmery warm-toned steel gray color. This was 3 thinner coats. Another smooth, easy to control formula. It starts out sheer and builds nicely on itself to make this shimmery finish.
It looks like there’s a patch on my middle nail, but that’s just the angle. As you can see at a different angle it’s completely opaque.
Lastly is ‘It’s a Trap’. I describe this as the perfect mermaid color. It’s a metallic blue color. This was 3 coats. It starts out sheer, but builds up on itself nicely. This one surprised me, in a good way. This is one that almost seems to have an inner glow to it. So beautiful.
This is another one that can look like it’s patchy from certain angles, and fully opaque from others.
These polishes surprised me! I wasn’t expecting much in quality, but they were even better than their price would lead me to believe.
As always, I can’t wait to pick up more from this line (I just always want more nail polish, let’s be honest here). It’s so affordable, and has pretty decent quality! Do you own any Funky Fingers?
One more day in SwatchWeek! See you back here tomorrow!
