Adventures in Cruelty-Free Nail Polish
A couple of days ago, I really felt like giving myself a manicure. Since the majority of my nail polishes are all tucked away in storage and I simply couldn’t be bothered to rummage around for them, I was determined to find some cruelty-free nail polish at the drugstore. Wet ‘n Wild was the obvious choice (and the most affordable, to be honest), and I’ll admit that I was super skeptical about the quality of the nail polish.
Admittedly I was pretty impressed with the selection of colors Wet ‘n Wild had to offer, but I was really looking for a bright red lacquer to add to my collection of neutral shades. Low and behold, I finally came across the shade I Red A Good Book. Corny name aside, this bright red nail polish just felt like the right choice! I don’t usually sport red nail polish because I’ve always felt like the color has made my finger and hands look exceptionally chubby, so I was fairly surprised that I ended up purchasing the shade.
The Wet ‘n Wild Megalast salon nail color formula isn’t half bad — it only took two coats of polish to become opaque. The brush is probably the thing I dislike the most about this nail polish, though. It’s such a wide brush and it takes a little bit of getting used to, and even though it sped up the nail-painting process, it was a little messier than I would have liked. Brush aside, the color is vibrant and gorgeous. My nails felt strong and looked super sleek for the first two days of wear. It’s been four days since I applied the nail polish and so far I’ve only seen a little bit of wear on the ends of the nails and one chip on my ring finger. Other than that, this nail polish has had better staying power than I’ve seen in some of the more expensive nail polishes out on the market.
