Finger Paints "Circus Peanuts" Nail Polish

Source

Circus Peanuts!  Have you ever had them? They are that marshmallow type candy that is shaped like a peanut and tastes like-banana (?)!  Many people think they are gross.  My Dad loves these and I, in turn, have a soft spot for them.  I find them to be delicious, as long as they aren't stale (a common problem is finding the soft ones).  Because of my love of Circus Peanuts, I was all over this polish of the same name by Finger Paints. "Circus Peanuts" (the polish) is more peachy than it's candy counterpart tends to be, and is a almost neon.  The application/formula on this one was pretty craptastic- thick, thick, thick.  I had to bust out my nail polish thinner (something I rarely, if ever, do) and a few drops made it more workable.  It was still streaky after 2 layers, so I did a 3rd and it all evened out:






This came out in the "Gumdrops & Lollipops" collection for Spring at Sally Beauty Supply.  I had a hard time tracking this down, but finally found it at my 4th Sally's.

What are your feelings towards Circus Peanuts, both as a candy an polish? You fellow Circus Peanut aficionados will be happy to know that I've passed on the love of CP's to my 5 year old- he loves them too! :D

  1. I don't know what kind of circus peanuts they're eating but they have the color all wrong. That sucks that the formula was craptastic lol. I've never tried this brand, partially because when I start buying from one brand I have to own everything they have ever put out. But as far as the actual circus peanuts go.. I feel pretty good about them.

    1. RIght!? I was thinking the same thing...this isn't even close! This is only the 2nd Finger Paints that I own (the other, Winter Sky, is one of my alltime favorites!). I'm the same way...it bugs me if I only have one of a polish sitting by itself in my Helmer! haha

    1. I totally agree! I can't figure out if I'd call it orange, or peach, or what! Any way, it's fabulous!

  4. Aw, I like the color, but I can't help but wish it was the REAL color of circus peanuts. I guess all the ones I've tried have been stale because they've all been more the texture of packing peanuts.
