wet n wild fastdry Gray’s Anatomy

wet n wild Gray's AnatomyI spotted wet N wild’s new nail polishes at Walgreens not long ago and had to pick up a few to try. Gray’s Anatomy immediately caught my eye. Not because it’s something I’d normally gravitate to, but because it looks so different.

Gray’s Anatomy is a sheer silvery lilac with flashes of green and blue. The duochrome is quite strong though most of the time my nails appeared to be the lilac color.

The formula reminds me a great deal of OPI I’m a Princess, You’re Not!; very sheer, but buildable. I used four coats and was quite happy with the coverage.

This polish is it claims that it’s a fast dry nail polish. Wet n Wild claims one coat dries in 60 seconds. Lol, no. I didn’t use a top coat (I like to test polishes that claim they are quick dry) and even though I did this manicure several hours before I went to bed, I still woke up with the dreaded bed nails. I would definitely recommend using a top coat with this polish.

I also had some issues with bubbling, but I think that can be avoided by letting the coats dry a bit longer before putting on the next coat of polish.

And just to avoid any confusion, wet N wild did release a polish of the same name over the Summer. It was limited edition and part of the craze line. This is NOT the same polish. The LE craze polish is a silver metallic. The fastdry polish is the one that is supposed to be a dupe of Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game (see a fabulous comparison here).

  1. I think this looks really good on you. Jealous.

  3. […] does claim to be fast drying (wet n wild claims that one coat dries in a minute), but after using Gray’s Anatomy from this line, I decided to use a top coat. I didn’t want bed […]

  4. I have gone to 4 Walgreens and 2 Riteaids and everywhere is sold out! So sad! I did manage to get Party of Five glitters (even though I have Deborah Lippman Happy Birthday) And How I Met Your Magenta, cause I love the show so much!! This color is beautiful on you.

  5. […] chrome metallic polish that flashes purple, silver and green. Sounds familiar right? Sounds like wet N wild Gray’s Anatomy (or Deborah Lippmann Wicked Games). This is […]

  6. […] very similar, but not dupes! I did a post on both of these individually (OPI Not Like the Movies, wet N wild Gray’s Anatomy) and I really do love them both. But, I do prefer OPI Not Like the Movies and these are similar […]

  7. […] nearly as much as the Wild Shine line. I picked up Ebony Hates Chris, Party of Five Glitters, and Grays Anatomy (which I […]

  8. […] I got the color Gray’s Anatomy in Rite-aid for about $ 1.99 . This is one of the limited edition color which is suppose to be a dupe of the expensive brand Deborah Lippmann . As soon as the beauty bloggers started talking about this nail polish, there was a shortage in the drugstore . Everyone wanted to have this color as it’s a unique one. When I was visiting Walgreens a while back, I saw the last bottle of this nail polish and decided to grab this before it goes of the shelf. I still couldn’t capture the true color of this nail polish in my camera. But if you want to see the photo of other bloggers then check out this and this. […]

  9. […] seem to get enough of these wet N wild fastdry polishes. So far I have tried Hannah Pinktana, Gray’s Anatomy and Party of Five Glitters.  Overall I’ve been less than impressed with this line, but […]

  10. […] As soon as I saw this polish at Ulta I thought “oh look, another attempt at a Deborah Lippmann Wicked Games dupe.” This is a new addition to essence’s permanent line and is along the same lines as Deborah Lippmann Wicked Games, OPI Not Like the Movies and Wet n Wild Gray’s Anatomy. […]

  11. […] As with Silvivor, the metallic finish is unforgiving with any nail flaws, such as divots. Much like The Daily Varnish said in their review, there is a little bit of an issue with bubbling, but the only drying time I […]

  12. […] It’s both hard to photograph and hard to describe, but it reminds me of a less awesome green version of Wet n Wild’s Gray’s Anatomy. […]

  13. […] did not make this polish part of the permanent line. But, luckily, this polish is very similar to Wet n Wild Gray’s Anatomy which is much less expensive and easier to find (a detailed comparison can be […]

  14. […] good on the nail, application is kind of a pain. The formula is quite thin and reminded me alot of Wet n Wild Gray’s Anatomy. I used 4 coats in my swatches and as you can see there is still a visible nail […]

  15. […] Inferno in the bottle I was immediately reminded of several other polishes in my collection. Both wet n wild fastdry Gray’s Anatomy and essence Where is the Party? have a similar though slightly darker base than Disco Inferno but […]

  16. […] my collection include essence Where is the Party?, OPI Not Like the Movies, NARS Disco Inferno and wet n wild Gray’s Anatomy. But one thing does set this polish apart from all of those polishes; the formula. This is almost a […]
