Wet N Wild Pick Your Poison Collection – Fall 2012

Today I headed over to CVS because I wanted to see if they had the Wet N Wild Halloween polishes. Unfortunately I didn’t find them even though they seem to be out in other areas. I can be patient–I just hope we eventually get them! I hope this doesn’t turn out to be a reverse Saved By The Nail collection for me! haha!

Even though I didn’t find the polishes I wanted, I stumbled upon a full display of new Megalast polishes. A NEW FALL COLLECTION!!! The Wet N Wild Pick Your Poison Collection is full of dark colors that will work like a charm for fall. (Hurry up, Fall! Hurry!! I miss you!) I am not that familiar with the Megalast line from Wet N Wild, but I am a big fan of their Wild Shine and FastDri lines so I thought that these would probably be winners too. Well…I love the colors and the formula was pretty decent, but the brushes on about half of my bottles were wonky–wonktastic. They seemed kind of stiff and and uneven. However, when the brush was fine, it applied the polish evenly and smoothly. I am always a fan of wide brushes, and this line of polishes definitely has a wide paddle-type brush. Let me show you the colors before I blab more about this collection.

    

Poison Ivy

    

Toxic Apple

    

Root Of All Evil

    

Deadly Dose

    

Venomous Vixen

    

Lethal Injection

So my final thoughts on this collection are: This is a very typical Fall collection with dark and rich colors. I like the jewel type shimmer of these colors. I do wish that the brushes were more consistent because when they are wonky, they are BAD. I like the wide brush for my wide nail beds, but I can see that those with smaller nail beds might have some problems with the brush. All in all, I think that these polishes are a steal for $1.99 each and even though the colors are not unique to hardcore polish fans, I think that colors like Poison Ivy and Root Of All Evil are worth picking up.

Let me know what you think of these colors. Have you seen this new collection in your area yet? Will you be picking up any of these colors? Which is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by and until next time!

EDIT: I didn’t think about this when I first swatched the colors, but doesn’t this collection remind you a lot of China Glaze’s Vintage Vixen?

P.S. There are only a couple more days left to enter my giveaway for 5 essence polishes so enter soon if you haven’t done so already! 🙂

  1. I wish the brushes on these didn’t suck so hard because I love ALL of these colors! Btw I saw a full display of the W&W tombstone polishes at Ulta yesterday. If you want any let me know and I can pick them up tomorrow (if they’re still there!).

    1. Come to think of it, I don’t think my Ulta has Wet N Wild! That is so nice of you!!! I am sure they will come to my area sooner or later. The hunt is part of the fun. lol I do wish the brushes were better too.

    1. Let me know if you want me to get one for you. It’s no trouble at all. Speaking of emerald green polishes, have you tried China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald?

  2. Toxic Apple was my favorite.

    I had one mega last polish and I had the same problem with the brush, i found it “incomoda”..!! but it was the same with the other 3 polishes I bought.. I didn’t like WnW brushes very much..

    1. I totally know what you mean. I also found the brush kind of uncomfortable. I think it’s a combination of the handle and the brush bristles just being uneven and weird sometimes. I guess for the price, we can’t complain too much. lol

    1. Omg, I had such a hard time applying the gold one. It was clumpy or something and it would create like mountains of polish that I couldn’t smooth out. lol

  3. Dang I didn’t expect to like these so much but they have such an interesting, deep-looking quality. I don’t know how else to explain it. I really like Poison Ivy although the name makes me think Cheeeeeeesyyyyyy. Anyway I really like these and I’m curious about the brush. The Butter London brush is still killing me with how ridiculous it is. I’m wondering how this brush with compare to it.. one’s small and one’s big but I wonder which I will find most annoying. Hrmmm…

    1. I actually like the butter london brush. It doesn’t give me any application issues. I can’t remember ever seeing butter london on your blog! Did you just get some? What colors did you get? I ended up getting 6 bottles during the Ulta BOGO. 🙂

      I totally feel the same about Poison Ivy…I keep getting flashbacks to soft core showtime movies (Drew Barrymore in Poison Ivy) lol

  4. I like these better than I thought I would from the photos of the collection I’d seen. I’m not sure if I’ll pick any of these up, but I like the green, the two blues, and the gray.

    1. I don’t think any of them are MUST HAVES if you are a polish hoarder but I do like the green and the bright blue enough to recommend them to everyone…wonky brush and all.

  5. I was so excited to see this display when I was on vaca in Boise. They didn’t have the green so I am hoping this collection comes to a store near me!! These megalast polishes by wet n wild are my fav 🙂
