|Wet n' Wild Megalast Salon Nail Color in Wet Cement|
I love painted nails. I think everyone’s hands look infinitely better with a good manicure and a nice fresh paint job. Now, for the bad part. I SUCK at painting nails. Really, I have the manual dexterity of a 5 year old. Growing up as a bit of a tomboy it’s a skill I never quite developed. So, since I have them done professionally, my hands aren’t painted as much as I would like. I’m getting better at it though. I’m also getting better at using color on my fingernails. I could wear Essie’s Waltz (a lovely neutral) all day long; partially because I love the color, and partially because I hate the way colored nails look when they chip and then having to remove the polish a few days after getting my nails done. So, I was on the hunt for a long wearing nail color. I was going to pick up a pricey long wear brand, but decided to try Wet n’ Wild Megalast first. For the low price of $1.99, what did I have to lose?
What Wet n’ Wild says:Long-lasting, opaque color provides 5 days of chip-resistant wear. A revolutionary resin polymer system creates exceptional color adhesion to nails.
Other benefits: Toluene, phthalate, and formaldehyde free.
This polish also has a wider “pro brush” than the standard brush for easier application.Disclaimer: my nails were professionally done and an OPI Top Coat was applied.
The verdict: LOVE THIS POLISH! I can honestly say I am as excited about this product as any I have tried in some time.
First, after two coats, the polish gave good shine, even before the top coat was applied. Impressed.
Now for the wear:Day 1: Slight wear at the tips. I’m not concerned. I use a computer all day, and this happens with every polish I own.
Day 3: One official chip on my left index finger.
Day 5: Two chips.
So, did Megalast last 5 days without chipping? No. But I can say that this polish did as well and better than my OPI, Essie and $14 Butter nail polishes. Seriously. This polish is the bees’ knees. I typically get nail chippage at day 3 and have to flat out remove my polish by either the 3rd or 4th day. For $1.99, this polish is a no-brainer. The value is awesome.
I will definitely be buying more.
