Wet n Wild - Wild Shine Nail Polish Swatches

wet n wild wild shine nail polish - newly reformulated and repackaged for 2015

Back in 1979 these pretty polishes were released from wet n wild and they've been top-sellers ever since. From satin-y cream finishes to metallics and glitters, these Wild Shine polishes are so worth the $1.99 price tag.

First featured here last December, I tested out the Matte Top Coat alongside 487E Grape Minds Think Alike, 458C Yo Soy, and 470B Ready to Propose. Click here to see that review.

Starting from the top nude, continuing clockwise: 458C Yo Soy, 488B Who Is Ultra Violet?, 481E Putting on Airs, 483D Be More Pacific, 484C Do Pass Go, 487E Grape Minds Think Alike, 485D Black Crème, 482D Bijou Blue, 470B Ready to Propose, 480C Sparkled, A001 New Years Kiss (Fergie), A005 Flossy Flossy (Fergie), A004 Glamorous (Fergie), 452A Matte Top Coat, 451D Protective Base Coat, Tickled Pink (bottle broke), 476E Red Red, 474C Nuclear War, 472D D'Oh!, 457E She Sells
The packaging has been upgraded to fit more ergonomically in the hand, but I have to say that I'm not impressed with the "improvement". The plastic is cheap and one of the glass bottles cracked into pieces when I tightened the cap too much. I also had a few of the black tops come apart from the brush, which was a bit of a pain to glue back down.

Overall, for only a toonie these vibrant and pigmented polishes are well worth it. They definitely aren't bulletproof but the formula is consistent and high quality.

wet n wild Wild Shine polishes are 3-free: no Formaldehyde, Toluene or Phthalates. Worn with my favourite base coat and top coat (OPI Nail Envy Matte and INM Out The Door) the colour stays chip-free for up to a week. The matte top coat in this collection is amazing, and the base coat works decently well. The brush shape is pretty standard, similar to that of an Essie polish. See the review linked above for photos of the brush.

You can find the Wild Shine polishes at your local Walmart and Loblaws in Canada.
