Wet n Wild has released a collection of six new & limited edition Wild Shine polishes for Spring 2014, called the Street Art collection. I spotted these in store a week or two ago, and initially bought only the purple, Deception. After seeing G.’s swatches over at Nouveau Cheap, I went back and picked up the orange, Cursed, as well.
Tonight, I have quick swatches of both plus an orange jelly comparison.
First, here’s Deception at one coat, two coats, and three coats. It’s on the sheer side – it took three coats to be reasonably opaque, and I suspect four coats would be needed to fully cover the nail line.
Next up, Cursed. It’s streaky at one coat, but perfectly even at two coats. It’s fantastic, and I’d highly recommend it, especially for 99 cents.
I have a couple orange jelly-finish polishes that I thought would be similar to cursed, so I compared them. From left to right in both photos, we have OPI Y’all Come Back, Ya Hear? (from the Texas collection), Wet n Wild Cursed, and L’oreal Mango Mamma (from the Miss Candy collection).
They look very similar, but note that this is 3-4 coats of the OPI and the L’oreal, but only two coats of the Wet n Wild – it’s much more opaque than the others, almost a crelly finish instead of a true jelly.
