NOTD: Finger Paints Evergreen Dream

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

My very first ... Finger Paints is on my nails this weekend.

I was so happy when I got Evergreen Dream as part of the Sally sale haul last month. I never owned any Finger Paints before, and this gorgeous green shade has been a very sought after colour within the brand. What could be better than this?

As I have been switching slowly to darker nail colours, Evergreen Dream fit right in. It's a beautfiul shimmery dark green, looks really shiny on my nails. I think I can get away without a top coat if I wanted to.

I'd love to have the brush a little wider to work the 3-stroke technique. The polish dried quite quickly which made it harder to do more than 3 strokes on one nail, so we have to be quick with this one.

And then, I read from a few nail blogs that mattified Evergreen Dream is a close dupe of Zoya Veruschka which I don't have. So I tried it out with China Glaze Matte Magic to see for myself.

I think the colour transferred well into a matte look, and got a little darker. I like the colour matte but prefer the shiny look a bit more. What do you think?

I'm thankful for matte top coats (whatever brands out there), as I could get 2 different looks out of each polish, which means we can double our stash without buying more :-)

Have a relaxing weekend everyone!


  1. I've got this and I still haven't tried it yet. I loooove looking at it though.

  2. This looks so much like Sinful Colors San Francisco. In fact, I thought it was SF until I actually started reading your post. lol. What's the staying power like? I've never tried FP polishes before. Thanks!

  3. PerryPie, the colour is pretty. Try it out and let me know what you think of it :-)

    R, I don't own SF, so can't confirm the similarity :-) Green is such a fun colour to try on nails. Staying power is good on me, only a tiny bit tip wear after I did tons of laundry
