Paint Fab polishes are all 3 free and made in the USA. I believe they have 15 or so colors available and are $5.95 for a single or $9.95 for a duo. So yes they are affordable (Hooray!) But I’m always going to be completely honest with you guys and I do have to say I wasn’t a huge fan of the shades I did swatch. I found all of them to be a hit or miss formula. Some were very thick, some were thin and I was even missing half of a brush on one of them. Do I think JustFab is ready to enter the polish world? Probably not. All of the swatches shown below were topped with the JustFab 2 in 1 Top & base coat.
Teal The Show – Teal cream. This was the thickest of all of the ones I tested out. It took quite a bit of work not to get it pooled in my cuticles. The color is very pretty don’t get me wrong, but not at all unique. Photo below shows two coats plus top coat.
Senora Bora Bora – Cobalt blue cream. Another thick formula. And even when using the JustFab 2 in 1 top & base coat, I still experienced a nice blue stain on my nails after I removed this. Not happy with that at all. Photo below shows two coats.
Pink Slip Me A Drink – Fuchsia cream. The formula on this one was semi thin and I had to swatch it twice because the first time it pooled up in my cuticles so badly.. but the worst part? My bottle only had half a brush! That’s the other thing with these polishes, all of the brushes were hit or miss as well. Some had a thin brush, some had an angled brush and in this case.. half a brush! How is that even possible? Photo below shows two coats plus top coat.
Auber Genius – Deep eggplant purple with shimmer. The formula was again, thick and the shimmer was sparse. Photo below shows two coats.
Modern Mauvels – Blush / mauve cream. Formula was VERY thin on this shade. This is definitely not my favorite color at all. I needed 3 coats for this to become opaque. Shown below with top coat.
Overall, as much as I wanted to be impressed with this line it definitely fell flat for me. Basically, you get what you pay for but in all honesty, you can go get a 0.99 polish from Wet & Wild and the formula will knock these out of the park. For now, I think JustFab needs to stick with what they do best and know people love – Shoes, Handbags & Accessories.
Have you tried any of the PaintFab shades? Did you experience the same issues I did? Sound off in the comments below! And remember – this is *MY* opinion. If they worked out great for you, then that’s awesome but for me I have to give them a thumbs down right now. Hopefully the formula can improve in the future!
