Funky Fingers SAND & STILETTOS Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Have you ever heard of the store Five Below?  I'm not sure if these are everywhere in the US, or even International for that matter, but we ran in there yesterday and I was shocked to see a beauty section!  They had Wet N Wild (mostly core products, but a few of the older polishes were there too!) and a ton of random polishes.

A brand they had a lot of shades from is Funky Fingers.  Never heard of it, but there were A LOT of pretty shades.  One that literally SCREAMED at me was Sand & Stilettos.

Holy freakin glitter ball of holo.  I prayed it would be as pretty on the nail as it was in the bottle.  And it is.  The swatch below is three coats and I can't stop staring.  I feel like I'm at a disco.  It does feel rather gritty, even with a top coat, but the fact that it is SO gorgeous means you should probably overlook that if it's something that usually bothers you.

Funky Fingers Nail Polish retail at Five Below for $2 each or 3 for $5.  You're welcome.

I actually really love Funky Fingers. I bought a really nice gold foil from them around Xmas that I used in my Xmas Mani and they had an Alice in Wonderland collection er... last summer or something? I don't know about their currently reach, but Five Below seems to be opening new stores on a fairly regular basis.

This post reminds me that I haven't been there in a while though, so I should probably do that. ;)

I'm pretty sure this is the same polish as Sugarplum Fairy from Color Club's winter release. Funky Fingers are made by the creators of Color Club, though I find they don't apply as well. Maybe they are using a different base, but the colors are exactly the same.

I love Five Below! They recently opened one 20 minutes from where I live so I have visited a few times :) I picked up this same polish and I LOVE IT!

@BlushingNoir - I just recently discovered this myself. Word of caution, even though you are supposed to be able to return stuff for store credit, some stores don't abide by that policy so only buy something from Five Below if you are absolutely positive you will be keeping it.

Brooke @ Blushing Noir said...

weird they don't all keep to the same policy! The two things I got for me I love, which is the polish and a mini manicure set (which works BETTER than one I paid more for at walmart by a name brand) and the kids stuff already basically broke lol it was just a thing to do trip ;)

This polish recently came in to my life thanks to a really awesome blogger. I've only used it on my accent nail and couldn't stop staring.. can't imagine how distracted I would be if it was on all 10 digits. Gorgeous glitter ;)
