New wet n wild wild shine nail polish review (swatches)

Wet N Wild launched in 1979 with these nail polish and up to this day, they are still their top-sellers. Why? Not only are they just straight up awesome, but they’ve got every colour, texture, and effect that anyone can possibly think of: creams, metallics, glitters, you name it! After decades of these flying off shelves, Wet N Wild are pretty sure that you already have a couple stashed away, but with so many colours, one can always add a new one – or double up!

I’m pretty sure one of my first polishes growing up was from Wet N Wild because it’s true, they have so many colours and they’re just so affordable! Now, they have a NEW formula and NEW packaging! They are oh so chic! They are also formaldehyde, toluene and phthalates FREE!

Overall, these are great polishes for their price of only $1.99 SRP per bottle. Some colours are better than others. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the metallic shades more than the creams, which is very rare coming from me. There’s just a shine to the metallic colours that the cream ones don’t have. I love love love Ready to Propose, which is a stunning gold colour. The creams aren’t bad either; they are pretty smooth, though some colors more than others. On average, I only needed 2 coats to get complete opacity.

The wear on these aren’t the best; on average, they last for around 3-4 days before I see chipping. The one thing I had hoped Wet N Wild would have changed with the new packaging is offer a new applicator. Sadly, they didn’t and the brush is still small and flimsy. But for $2 a bottle, I really don’t see the harm in trying some of their colours.
These are available now at mass market retailers.
