Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color

Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color for Spring 2015 will be arriving at stores soon, if it hasn’t already, and I’ve got swatches of some of the new shades.

This line actually was the very first thing Wet n Wild launched with way back in 1979! Since then they’ve been their top-sellers, and they are the #1 selling nail polish at drugstores. They may look different because they now have different packaging and a new formula. There are 24 shades included in this new launch that come in various finishes such as metallic, creme, shimmer and glitter.

So am I a fan of the new formula and shape? Hmm. Sorta? The bottles are decent looking and definitely a unique shape. I don’t love that the cap is such a different shape though that it’s awkward to hold. It might work better if the cap had a grippy texture rather than slippery smooth one. The formula seems a bit hit or miss depending on the shade/finish. Some were very pigmented with two coats and some were three coats and on the thick side. Another thing to note is the old bottles has 0.43 oz inside and these are slightly smaller at 0.41 oz. They are still just $0.99 though.

She Sells is a pale peachy pink creme. This had a somewhat uneven and thick formula. It took two coats to cover.

D’oh! is a bright yellow creme. This one too had some issues with being too thick and uneven, so I needed three coats.

 Putting on Airs is a sky blue creme. Gorgeous bright shade and just a wee bit uneven. This was two coats.

Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color Grape Minds Think Alike

Grape Minds Think Alike

 Grape Minds Think Alike is a deep maroon creme. This was a bit uneven on me and I needed three thin coats.

Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color

Some of these were pretty good and just two coats, and some I had more difficulties with and needed three coats. The colors themselves though are really fun shades, though I’m not sure there is anything unique here. I think the best ones in terms of color and formula are Yo Soy, Putting on Airs, Do Pass Go, Who is Ultra Violet? and Be More Pacific.

These should be out now or coming out soon to CVS, Walgreens, Wal-mart, KMart, Duane Reade, etc.

Are you going to try out the new formula? What do you think about this bottle shape?
