Midweek Mani: Wet n Wild's Metallica
Hey everyone, Meade here! This week's mani is a new favorite of mine! I've always love metallic shades, especially silvers, and this new version of the classic metallic silver polish comes from Wet n Wild's Wildshine collection, appropriately named "Metallica". Now, usually I don't rave about a specific polish, but this one really covers all its bases!
Color Appeal: This is a completely classic shade of metallic silver. It's bright and pretty! I wouldn't even call it ostentatious - it just gives me a sense of clean lines and industrial undertones. Mainly I picked this polish because it kind of makes me think winter thoughts, like the sparkle of snowflakes. I know it's only early November, but in Houston we take all the cold weather feels we can get! 9/10.
Application: Although I would have preferred a wide brush, and the bottle is a bit awkward shaped, the actual formula goes on really nicely. You could even get away with just one coat if you wanted -- it's that opaque. 8/10.
Durability: Right now it's day 3, and not a chip in sight. Of course, I used my standard of two top coats (one coat OPI and one coat seche vite), so that is largely the reason for good durability. However, I think this polish holds its own pretty well. I've had polishes that chip even with my two top coats, and this one is still going strong. 8/10.
Affordability/Availability: SO AFFORDABLE! Seriously Wet n Wild is known for its affordability. Less than $2 on drugstore.com! Wet n Wild is also one of the most available lines out there. This is a rare instance of 10/10.
I also have the gold version of this polish, called "Ready to Propose" that I'm thinking of trying out next week, so stay tuned!
