Today, I’m showing you another polish from my recent U.S. drugstore haul. 🙂
This is another “new” brand for me, Wet ‘n’ Wild Wild Shine, and one of the colours from them I chose to get was Eggplant Frost, which is a beautiful shimmery blurple. In the bottle, it looks a bit like it might be a blue-purple duochrome, but I didn’t see that translate to my nails.
By the way, I don’t get the name of this polish; sure, it’s a dark blurple with shimmer, but it’s not really eggplant (too much blue in it) and not really a frost either. Actually, the base colour is a red-purple, which might build up to eggplant, but the polish is so loaded with royal blue shimmer that it really ends up being just a mixture of both colours.
It’s not wholly unique in my collection, but beautiful enough that I’m really happy to have it. 🙂
Pictured here is two coats of Eggplant Frost, but looking at my pinkie, I can see some bald spots there.
I loved wearing this polish, as the colour was so rich and vibrant. However, I couldn’t get past day one, as the polish chipped on me within 24 hrs even when topped with Seche Vite. 😦
The application was perfectly fine, even if I almost tilted over the bottle, which is a little flimsier than what I’m used to. 😛 The brush itself (bristles) might be too long for some people, but I didn’t find it problematic at all.
When I think about it, I’ve yet to encounter a brush I didn’t get along with… The glaring exception being Isadora Graffiti brushes. Dislike those.
I look forward to wearing this again! 🙂
p.s. Stay tuned for my review of Viva La Nails water decals as a first time user of any sort of nail decals or stickers. 🙂
I’ve occasionally seen Wet ‘n’ Wild polishes pop up in Estonia in the most random places, 2-3 shades at a time, so it’s worth keeping your eyes open. However, as this is a U.S. drugstore brand, the safest bet would be eBay for acquisition of this beauty.
