Two New Wet 'N Wild Polish Swatches

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 1/15/2011 06:51:00 PM
Ahhhh...I think it's a stinkin' cute giveaway.  I picked up fun stuff that you may not splurge on yourself but would like to have.  Check it out here and enter.

Wet 'N Wild Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands.  One, they are usually easily found at Walgreens.  And two, they are affordable.

They just released a new promotion and it's selling out as fast as Wags can get them.
Here's a couple of polishes I picked up...

Slickly named after well-known television shows, this one is called 'Hannah Pinktana.'  A medium purple that has pink and purple micro-glitter.
Here in the sunny window.
Here outside.  A really nice sunny morning.

Here's the downside: this is EIGHT coats of polish!!!!  I was set on going as many as needed to get my nails to look like the color in the bottle.  S-O-U-P-Y.  Now, it wasn't gritty but it took a lot to get it to opaque. 
Other than that, I love this one.

Then I tried "Blue Wants To Be A Millionaire."

Same sparkles but in blue this time.  These sparkles look iridescent.


In the sunlight you can see how thin the polish shows up on my nails.  This is 4 coats.  I did top off with 2 coats of Seche Clear and 1 Seche Vite.  Way too thin and soupy for me.  I think I would have needed 8 coats of 'Blue Wants To Be A Millionaire' to get it to the same opaqueness as 'Hannah Pinktana.'

So, I'm more than a bit disappointed in these polishes performance.  I love the colors though.  Maybe next time I'll play with different colors underneath and see if I can find something that will make these pop.

What color and/or polish would be good to use underneath either of these?  Did you get these and what do you think about the depth of the coats?

I love wet n wild but i agree with you totally these are definatly to thin its a nice shade but it would look so much better if it was more pigmented :)

Maybe layer them over black? That's what Chloe's Nails does and it looks neat!

The pink one is so pretty! But whoa! 8 coats! That's insane! You are one patient lady, I'll tell you that! =)

@Charmed-Chick Yep, it was so watery.

@Toesthattwinkle 8 is crazy, seriously.

@Kendal a bottom coat is a def. I'll try black and see how that looks.

@Straight Up Glam maybe not patient, just determined or, obsessed? ;)

Wow, eight coats? I don't think I would have the patience for that... but the color looks like it has so much potential! (Despite the show it's named after... eck.)

Maybe you could layer them? I haven't seen any of these around yet. It seems like New Mexico is always a little slow on the uptake.

@Lace I don't think of myself as a patient person. Just a persistent Aries. ;)

@Megan I knew things weren't going to be so 'convenient' when I lived in Santa Fe when Outback Steakhouse didn't have sweet potatoes. We were told it was because they were too expensive to haul up the mountain. ???
