I've gone on the record before and professed my love for the Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Polishes- in terms of drugstore offerings, these are seriously impressive and definitely in my top 3 high street nail polish brand estimation. So you can imagine my delight when the very lovely PR crew for Wet n Wild surprised me with a lovely package of Wet n Wild Megalast goodness to try out. All of these nail polishes are limited edition from the Silver Lake collection, so if you like what you see down below, be prepared to dash to your nearest Wet n Wild display before the disappear forevermore. The first thing I thought when I saw these was that they are very Essie-esque colours- maybe it's just me, but I swear I have Essie equivalents for all of these colours, yet these ones are less than a third of the price, and for the most part, more creamier, longlasting and opaque.
All Wet n Wild Megalast nail polishes come with a nice wide curved brush so you can literally do one swipe per nail and coat your entire nail which appeals to the lazy side of me so much. The colours are pretty long lasting for a drugstore offering- I get about 3 chip free days as I have brittle nails- but some of my chums get up to a week from these polishes. For a bottle that will only set you back €2.99, that's pretty dang impressive.
Tree Hugger- now normal I hate green on my nails, I just feel like they do me no favours, but this is a beautiful, milky, pastel, minty green that applies beautifully, two coats for full opacity, and looks incredibly shiny and creamy once applied. I definitely don't have any other shades like this in my collection so if greens are your thing, or even if they're not, keep an eye out for this.
Wear Skinny Jeans is a dead ringer for my fave blue polish of all time, Essie's Bikini so Teeny. This is an AMAZING blue shade, again creamy enough to be completely opaque after two coats, and so summer appropriate.
Warm Filter- on first impressions, I thought this was going to be my fave of the bunch because I do love a coral nail at this time of year, but actually, it turned out to be my least favourite- it's not a bad polish but it does take a little more work than the other ones to apply. I find the formula of this is thicker, streakier and I needed three coats of this for it to be streak free and opaque. The colour is a beautiful vibrant coral, definitely not as pastel as the rest, but I wouldn't hold that against it.
Reject the Mainstream is a gorgeous creamy lilac colour, probably one of my favourite ever lilac polishes and I love my lilacs. Two coats is perfect to build up the opacity, and when I look at this shade on my nails, I actually find it hard to believe that this is a drugstore polish. In terms of ease of application, colour payoff- this is a winner.
A Latte Love - now I have deliberately saved my favourite until last. This is that gorgeous beige cream shade that I have been searching for forever. The amazing formula built up the opacity you see in the picture in two thin little coats. Incredible! This polish has performed in ways that I wish my Essie or OPI or Jessica nail polishes couldn't. I adore this colour so much- I have small hands and small nails and I think this just looks so demure and I know you love when I say it- work appropriate. This is a phenomenal colour for sure and I will most definitely pick up a half dozen of these before they go out of stock. If you only buy one from this whole collection, make it this one!
So if you like the look of what you have seen, get yourself to your nearest Penneys/ Dunnes Stores/ pharmacy and grab them whilst you can. Which one is catching your eye?
