Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Colour in Red Red - R25
This is the first time I'm trying a nail polish by Wet n Wild and I love it! The above picture (taken before cleanup, my bad) is of two coats with no top coat. Look how shiny! The brush took me a bit of getting used to, mostly because it's a skinny one that doesn't fan out a whole lot, and I've been using essence polishes a lot lately with their jumbo brush. Once I got the hang of it though, it worked just fine. The polish was beautifully pigmented and was almost perfectly opaque in just 1 coat - I added a second coat just to even out my brush strokes. The polish dried appreciably fast. I'm currently 48 hours in and it's surviving well - still shiny, no chips (with base coat but no top coat... yet) and made it through dish washing, showering, hair washing and other foes. I've just started seeing a little bit of tip wear on my dominant hand. At only R25 for a 12.7 ml bottle, it's really excellent value for money so you can bet that I'll be adding a lot more of these to my collection! (Also, according to the website, these polishes are formaldehyde, toluene and pthalate free so you can feel safe wearing them!).
