FingerPaints Appetite for the Archetype

I bought FingerPaints gel polish Appetite for the Archetype awhile back on the clearance rack at Sally's and I neglected it for a long time.  I decided to use it for my base for a nail art challenge on Instagram, so here it is!

I'll admit, I only bought it because I thought it was a deep purple and I needed a deep purple gel polish.  Plus, it was only $3.  I was totally wrong about what this shade is.  This turned out to be a bright, neon purple.  It reminds me a lot of China Glaze Violet Vibes.

The formula isn't as opaque as I would want it, but that's okay because it was jelly-ish and that gives it a squishy look.  I was able to get this fully opaque in three coats.  I really, really love the finished look.

I then used What's Up Nail Vinyls in the watermarble design and Color Club Halo-graphic to create a nail art design.

I'm just meh about this design.  Don't get me wrong, I like it, but in my head the design was supposed to be really dark with the holo design.

I'm still on the hunt for a dark purple gel polish, but on the plus side I own a squishy and awesome neon purple gel polish!

I did not test the wear time or removal of this gel polish as I only used it for my nail art base.  I used a peel off base with my swatch.

Have you tried any of the FingerPaints gel polishes?  I also bought what I think is a dark blue when I bought this one, so I can't wait to try that out!
