wet n wild 1 Step WonderGel Crime of Passion

wet n wild 1 Step WonderGel Crime of Passion The Daily VarnishI mentioned in my post on essie Cabana Boy that the beauty section  at my local CVS was going under a bit of an overhaul. Well, one of the things they added was the new 1 Step WonderGel line to the existing wet n wild display.

For the longest time I was a huge fan of wet n wild nail polish. But, as the years pasted, the rest of the nail polish world moved forward and wet n wild was a bit stagnant. So I was very excited about the release of this line.

Thanks to my love of red nail polish (and the fact that it is included in the wet n wild Wild At Heart Valentine’s display…) I went straight for Crime of Passion. The polish is AMAZING. Not only is it a fantastic cherry red creme the formula is outstanding.

Though wet n wild claims this is a 1 step nail polish I did use 2 coats in my swatches. I also used a base coat (Orly Bonder) because….red nail polish.

I want to do a wear test with this polish because wet n wild claims up to 2 weeks of wear. My nails still looked awesome on day 4 and currently I have Crime of Passion on my toes and it is wearing incredibly well.

Under the jump I included some information from wet n wild on the 1 Step WonderGel line as well as swatches of Crime of Passion.

OrlyFX Spazmatic

Orly Spazmatic The Daily Varnish This week has just been blah so far. Between being out of town last week, then the over hyped ice storm and the Panthers games this week is just a huge let down. What solves that problem? GLITTER. Of course. Spazmatic was originally released in 2012 and is a really fun glitter. I like the mix […] Continue reading →

Even though I’d hardly […] Continue reading →
