|Spoiled by Wet N Wild (left to right): Paying with Platinum, I'm so Jaded (which I believe was mis-marked and is actually Permission to Proceed), Did I Dye it Too Blonde?|
Paying with Platinum
Color description - In the bottle this looks like a dupe for Ki--kind of a silvery gun metal gray with purple and green flashes. Once applied, this is more of a milky silver with a subtle lavender sheen.
Application/Opacity - This had a decent formula with very mild streaking. I found that at 2 coats it was too sheer and had no flash to it. At 3 coats it was mostly opaque (but not completely) and had a subtle flash of lavendar.
|Isn't this gorgeous in the bottle? I was really curious to see how well the duo held up once applied.|
|I was surprised by how well my camera picked up the lavender flash, it was actually a bit more subtle in person. As you can see, there is no green flash like in the bottle.|
|Here's a closer view of Paying with Platinum. Again, no green to be seen, but definitely some lavender. Again, my camera picked up the duo a bit more than my eye was able to!|
|I'm usually very good when it comes to color memory. The second I saw Paying with Platinum I knew it looked like a perfect dupe for Zoya Ki. Look at that!|
|You saw how crazy-close these two looked in the bottles. Nothing like what they look like on your nail! They are like night and day. In fact, Paying with Platinum almost reminds me of lighter, reverse Zoya Adina once applied.|
|Here's a shot from a different angle so you can see how they both change for fun! Anyway, as you can see, Zoya Ki and Wet N Wild Spoiled Paying with Platinum are not dupes.|
Did I Dye it Too Blonde?
Color description - This is a hot, dayglo, highlighter yellow that is nuts in person!
Application/Opacity - I had my fingers crossed that this would be opaque, but kind of assumed it wouldn't be given the fact that I rarely see a color like this that's actually opaque. Unfortunately, this was semi-sheer. I honestly didn't mind that it was, but if you're looking for opacity keep looking. This applied very smooth and it was even, though sheer. I tried this over a white polish, but didn't find that it did the trick (see below).
|I think this is a super hot yellow and I don't mind at all that it's somewhat sheer. It glows! It dries a tad matte, but not? You'll see!|
|The brush - It was very hard to capture and I have no idea why, but the end was extremely uneven and chewed up. It did make applying the polish a tad more difficult.|
I'm so Jaded (or Permission to Proceed?)
Color description - Bright, in-your-face lime green with subtle gold micro-glitter. Even though this is labeled as "I'm so Jaded", it matches images I've seen of Permission to Proceed so I think this was mis-labeled.
Application/Opacity - This applied beautifully! I did 2 coats and found it to be perfect, but you could do a third if you applied it thin and wanted it a bit more vibrant.
|This takes my breath away! My nails looked like lime jelly beans sprinkled with gold dust! Ah!|
Wet N Wild Spoiled nail polishes are priced at $1.99 retail. I repeat, these are under $2 for fabulous polishes!
Where to Buy
I believe I heard these are CVS exclusives and the 2 displays I've seen have been picked through fairly thoroughly as the last couple weeks have gone by. I'd run out now and grab some if you're interested!
Even though my brushes looked as though someone had tried to eat them for snack, I'm super impressed with these polishes! Application was smooth and even though 2 weren't completely opaque, they were pretty anyway. I'm so Jade (or Permission to Proceed) is absolutely my favorite, followed by Did I Dye it Too Blonde?. I've gotta get a second bottle of the lime green and I need to get my hot little hands on Shrimp on a Barbie, Plenty of Fish in the Sea, Kickin' The Habit, Battle Of The Sexes, Are Mermaids Real?, and Black Mamba.
I've gotta find some new displays to pick through! What do you think, have these caught your eye?
