And let me tell you something about these new Wild Shine polishes right up front. If you have been disappointed with Wild Shines in the past, please rest assured that these new shades are nothing like the old ones. I personally bought a purple shade (I can't remember the color right now) a few years ago and was let down because the formula was streaky and I could not achieve the level of opaqueness that I wanted. So I just want to let you guys know that in all of the following pics, I used TWO coats and that was all that was required. The formula is soooo much better than the Wild Shines of yester-year! Also, I've been wearing my skittles mani for several days now and no chips! Just minimal tip-wear.
So without further ado, here are the fab new Wild Shine shades!
Jezebel is a gorgeous, velvety red shimmer that is deeper and richer in person. A classic for toes!
Metallica is the perfect name for this silver chrome. I love silver chromes on darker skin tones, so I'm afraid my swatch just doesn't do this one justice. If you've got a deeper skin tone than mine, this will look ah-maze-ing on you.
Sunny Side Up
You guys, I have been lusting for a cheery orange-juice creme for sooo long now (actually, since this post back in June of last year) so finally, FINALLY I got one! For some reason, shades like this just don't seem to pop up in drugstores a lot, so I'm thrilled WnW created Sunny Side Up for us. I probably could have used a third coat since two coats was a teensy bit streaky, but I still think it looks pretty good with two.
(Apologies for the smudge on my nail but I was in a hurry when I painted this so that smudge is due to operator error and not the formula itself.) I am a SUCKER for icy-blue-violets and Rain Check is certainly no exception. I love love love the soft violet shimmer in this, and I highly recommend it if you've got an icy-blue-violet addiction like myself.
I love the name of this one, which I think is a play on the halo effect of this glitter. The halo glitter is in a clear base, but I apologize if it looks funky in my swatch--my nails are a bit discolored since I pretty much never go without polish these days. I swatched Hallucinate on bare nails and I can confirm that the base it totally clear. Also, to me, the glitter is of medium size. Not too chunky yet not a micro-glitter either. I love it because you don't have to strain to see the halo effect.
I tried and tried to capture the beauty of Blue Moon but I'm afraid this was the best I could do with my little camera. Let me just say that this is a gorgeous, deep royal blue with what appears to me (reminder: I'm no expert in describing nail colors) to be baby blue and teal shimmers running through it. If you're a blue polish fan, you've got see this one in person to appreciate its beauty. It's deeper and richer than your standard navy blue drugstore polish. Love it!
Blue Moon layered with Hallucinate
I wanted to show you what Hallucinate looks like layered over a darker shade (just in case you were curious). I love this and I can't wait to put this combo on my toes. :)
And last but certainly not least, we have this little vixen named Night Prowl. This is a vivid magenta micro-glitter in a sheer black base. But let me tell you, do not be scared off by the words "sheer black base". Personally, those three words scare the crud out of me because of my bad experience with a little polish by Petites called Black Amethyst. I don't know if any of you own Black Amethyst, but let me tell you something. I have tried so hard to get an opaque look with that polish, and once I even painted SEVEN coats on my nails and even then it still didn't look opaque. It was streaky as streaky could be.
So let me tell you ladies, Night Prowl is no Black Amethyst, even though they look nearly identical in the bottle. The swatch of my nail was taken after TWO coats, and I easily achieved 100% opacity after those two coats. Yay!!
I hope you enjoyed my review of the new WnW Wild Shine polishes, and of course I would love to hear your thoughts!
