New drugstore awesomeness

I'm a huge Wet n Wild nail polish fan. Always have been. I noticed some new displays of Wet n Wild polish while out grocery shopping the other day and picked up these gems!


Blackmail. This is from their new line, it comes in squatty little round bottles. This shade is a black base with multi-colored glitter. Along the same lines as Sephora by OPI Never Enough Shoes and Sally Hansen Midnight in NYC, but I like this better. Why? More glitter. The glitter in the other two is too subtle for me, this one sparkles more. There's gold and red and something that looks iridescent or multicolored but it's small so I can't tell.


Blue Moon. HOLY CRAP. SO HOT. It's a dark blue shimmer with a green sheen/slight flash to it. It reminds me of my favorite blue from Jessica (Midnight Moonlight!), except this is 99 cents. It's rich and beautiful and not so dark that it looks black. Right on, Wet n Wild!

Night Prowl. Black base with hot pink/magenta glitter. Love at first sight. This is a bit like Petites... something... Amethyst something... I can't remember the name. The color of the glitter is rich and bright, not faded and silvery and it really stands out against the dense black. No glitter gets lost in the black base! So awesome.

Formula on these is on par with the rest of Wet n Wild's polishes- perfect. Pretty opaque, all looked good at two coats but I did three cause I'm like that. Good dry time. Excellent price tag.

The new squatty-bottle Wet n Wild line had a dusty blackberry/purple/mauve color that looked cool but I didn't grab that one. The others were mostly pinks and berries, but there were a few interesting ones sprinkled in. The Wild Shine line had a handful of new colors too, one was a glitter that looked like China Glaze Snow Globe, one was a lavender duochromey color and one was a silver? Oh, and two pinks.

Love me some Wet n Wild...

  2. I just got that Petites the other day...Black Amethyst! Really sheer. I read the WNW is not sheer, so huge win - gorgeous! Can't wait until I see these too.

  9. hot!!! I have to find these. I have a thing for dark nail polishes, they just look so elegant on nails. These almost remind me of MAC's style black collection, lol.

  13. I adore Blue Moon! It usually takes us awhile to get in the new Wet 'n' Wild colors in Philadelphia, but when they arrive, I am going to be waving a dollar bill!

  19. I was just at CVS but couldn't remember the nail polish brand (Wn'W) so I left empty-handed. :( But that just means I have to go back now. :)

    Can I make a request? Just about everyone I know gushes over CG's Ruby Pumps. I have it but I find OPI's Smittens With Mittens prettier. Since I can't swatch as well as you....maybe someday? :)

  22. I picked up these same colors last week! I highly suggest getting "Bite The Bullet" (I think that's the name), it's in the new bottles and it's a wonderful dusty lilac shade with a hint of grey :)

  23. Night Prowl is really stunning. I have been looking for it all day. I guess the drug stores around here just do not have it. Bummer. Hopefully I can find it some day soon.

  24. Ooh, I love all of them! The little squatty bottles? They're the Mega Last brand that used to be in rectangular bottles similar to the Wild Shine brand. But I love the shape of the new squatty bottles that hold the Mega Last polishes now.

    Anyway, I have ten of the Wild Shine, and I love them! Thank you for doing these swatches!

  25. Blue Moon and Night Prowl are yummy looking. I don't have too many of this brand. I'll have to try them.
