Review: Wet 'n' Wild Wild Shine Nail Color

Doing Drugstore: Wet 'n' Wild Wild Shine Nail Color

You all know by now that I usually love some Wet 'n' Wild makeup. It's not just the ridiculous name — the brand makes several products that I swear work just as well as $20 or $30 versions. Their Wild Shine Nail Polish ($1.29), however, is not one of those products. I know, you're thinking, "Bella, why are you surprised/disappointed with $1.29 nail polish? It probably costs the same as dipping your nails in ketchup would, and the ketchup is probably more moisturizing." And you're right, my expectations should not have been so high, and I bet ketchup makes a nice cuticle treatment. The shade I picked up, Dream Poppy, perfectly matched my new sexyface lip gloss, though, and has a hilarious opium reference for a name, so I was really excited. But then it took me four coats just to get it sort of non-transparent, and even now, beneath five coats, you can still definitely see where the whites of my nails begin. Is this true of all their colors, fellow Wet 'n' Wild fans? Or did I just get a bad shade/batch?

I love these polishes too! I would say they are WAY pigmented.

The thing I dont like about this nail polish is that it chips so quickly, even if you use top and bottom coats

Not all of the Wet n Wild shades have such a sheer effect. I own the WnW black creme polish and there is not an ounce of sheerness; very rich pigment. It is just hit or miss with the shade choices.

You picked a bad shade. I say that only because I painted my nails with their polish yesterday: two coats. I own a few of their shades: black, burgundy frost, eggplant frost, and denim chrome. I used denim yesterday, and it's perfectly opaque after two coats. The only thing I don't like about this polish is that it doesn't take very long for it to chip if you're not being a little careful with your nails. This isn't meant to wear for a week.
