Even MOAR Wet n Wild Fastdrys
I’ve got a few more Wet n Wild Fastdry polishes to show you all. One of the great things about this blog is its ability to help me go through a TON of my untrieds. I’ve had these suckers probably since February and just never got around to trying them out.
Well, onto the polish!
In the bottle, Gray’s Anatomy is a stunner! It looks like an oil slick, throwing a strong multi-chromatic mix of grey, blue and purple all together. On the nail, it’s a bit of a disappointment. The blue disappears entirely and what you’re left with is a quite subtle grey and purple duo-chrome that’s filled with brush strokes. To top it off, this is FOUR COATS. Gray’s Anatomy is ultra sheer. I expect to do 4+ coats from a jelly, not a duo-chrome.
With a close view, you can best see the duo-chromatic nature of Gray’s Anatomy. But from a farther point of view this effect is lost entirely. Gray’s Anatomy is supposed to be a dupe of Wicked Game by Deborah Lippmann, Scrangie has comparison shots at her blog.
Party Of Five Glitters is a clear jelly base filled with red, silver, blue, green, and purple hexagonal glitter in varying sizes. Like most chunky glitters, you have to carefully apply this one in thicker coats and manipulate where you want the glitter to go. This is 2 thick coats on top of Gray’s Anatomy.
And I always come back to orange. 18.104.22.168.Orange is a very intense orange jelly base filled with gold glitter, and my favorite out of the three shown here (surprise, surprise). This was 3 coats.
Well, hands down my favorite of the bunch is 22.214.171.124.Orange. The only reason I’ll even consider hanging onto Gray’s Anatomy is because it looks nice layered with Party Of Five Glitters. I’m not going to write off Gray’s Anatomy completely just yet, maybe if I play around with it a bit more I’ll warm up to it.
Wet n Wild Fastdry polishes retail for $1.99 and can be purchased at drugstores nationwide (CVS, Walgreens, etc).
