I'm sure my fellow American nail enthusiasts have heard about the massive new product line from Fing'rs that is currently at Walmart. It's giant and it is exciting but what is really exciting is that they are offering a kit with their own "water spotted" top coat. Much like the coveted OPI Black Spotted.
The kit includes two mini neon polishes in blue and pink as well as the spotted top coat. I was in a big hurry to try this out so I did a quick mani. Oh boy. I was happy and not so happy. You will see why.

I did a gradient with the two mini polishes. I was probably really stupid for using the blue so close to my cuticles. I found it really hard to clean up, cleaning up also caused it to run and flood my cuticles. And of course, it stained. Awesome. I did think it cool that it looked purple once I added the top coat but I won't put this near my cuticles ever again.
The trick with this is to apply the top coat in a VERY thin layer. Like, you need to wipe down the brush until you think none is left on it. That will give you the most separation. Thicker coats end up with fewer spots and if you're not careful, you'll just paint black over your nails. The top coat dries really fast and it is super glossy.
I will tell you something I learned by accident: If you do not apply top coat to seal it in, it will wash away. I found this out when I washed my hands before I could add Out The Door. Gratefully, it doesn't remove your base color and you can easily reapply it.
Overall, I love this kit. The top coat is rad and the pink polish is awesome. The blue is a hot mess and I hate it. Now, because I love you...I have swatched the minis by themselves so you can see them and I also tried the top coat over some other polishes.
I purchased this at Walmart for $6.48. Better hurry because it is going fast!
