Fresh Paint “Spruce Street”


IMG_6474A huge weight was lifted off my shoulders today.  I finished my final paper of the semester! It seems like all I’ve been doing for the last month and a half is writing.  My law review article, which was due on Easter, was almost 50 pages.  My Sports Law paper, which I finished Friday, was 25 pages.  And the paper that I finished today was much shorter, but the paper is very “word” sensitive, meaning that every single word had to have a purpose.  Its hard to explain, but all that matters is that all my papers are finished! Now I get to work on my finals, which start next week.  I am not a fan of school at the moment.

But today I have a polish to show you guys from Fresh Paint.  Fresh Paint is sold at 5 Below, which for all of you who aren’t from the US, is a dollar store (essentially).  Everything there is $5 or less.  I have to admit that I’m a bit of a snob sometimes and have never bought these polishes, because I always assumed that a polish from a dollar store wouldn’t be good quality.  I’m so happy to say that I was completely wrong.

IMG_6477Fresh Paint “Spruce Street” is a dark forest green creme, and honest has the perfect name because it reminds me of a Spruce pine.  This type of color is right up my alley because I love green and I love dark colors.  And on top of the awesome color, it dries really really glossy.  This is without a top coat and look at the shine on my nails!

IMG_6475The formula on this polish was really incredible.  Not only does it dry really glossy, but its really opaque as well.  It took 2 coats to be completely opaque.  The dry time was fantastic, almost like an Insta-Dri polish.  And the consistency was spot on.  I can’t comment on the longevity of the wear, because I didn’t keep it on long enough to chip.  But I’m really really impressed and now want to try a ton of Fresh Paint polishes.

What do you guys think? Have any of you ever tried any Fresh Paint polishes?

  1. I tried some of my sisters (a beige and a pink one) but after having it on a week and a half I took it off and was left with yellowish nails!! Maybe it’s because I didn’t use a base coat but after that I never used them again :/

      • Well even if my nails chip I don’t take them off fast, depends when I have time! But I know it did chip even with top coAt but I don’t know how long it took for them to chip was like a year ago! But yea I was surprised too I usually get staining from red polishes so to get from a pale links nd a beige was a surprise! They were pretty colors tho.

  2. I’m actually a manager for a 5 Below in my area and I love Fresh Paint polishes! They are actually made by the same company that makes Color Club polishes. If you haven’t been in a while they just got some new spring colors.
