wet n wild megalast Sugar Coat

wet n wild Sugar CoatAs much as I hate to admit it sometimes life requires nail polish that isn’t a crazy color. Subtle isn’t exactly my thing but everyone needs a go to pale pink or nude in their collection. I have a couple that color wise I like (China Glaze Oxygen, Color Club Who Are You Wearing?) but hadn’t found one with a good formula AND a good color.

I found myself browsing the wet n wild display at Harris Teeter, a local grocery store. Sugar Coat caught my eye. It looked like a good color for my (very) pale, cool skintone and in the past I’ve had great luck with polishes from the megalast line.

Sugar Coat is a very, very pale cool toned pink creme. The color is very flattering against my skintone. While the color is lovely, I was very concerned about the formula. As it turns out….the formula is wonderful! I used three coats in my swatches and was very happy with the result. The polish isn’t thin or runny like so many pale pinks I’ve used in the past.

I must admit that normally these kinds of colors make my stomach kind of turn but I ended up liking this mani quite a bit. It was subtle and understated yet looked very polished and chic.

Who knew I’d find the perfect nude polish at the grocery store! Especially for the very affordable price of $1.99.

There are additional swatches under the jump!

    How do you keep your cuticles and hands looking so nice?! What lotions and cuticle products do you use?

    Oh I wish this looked the same on my nails! I love the color – bought it tonight and it looks a mess. So streaky and pooled in my cuticles. It’s the perfect color for my skin tone but that wide brush – I just cannot maneuver it! Sad. 🙁

      I just used this for the first time tonight and it is a streaky mess for me also..

        I wonder if they’ve changed the formula. Because I didn’t have any problems with the formula. If so, that’s a shame!

        Lisa, I’m glad I’m not the only one! I thought maybe it was just user error, but it looks nothing like Alli’s nails here. 🙁 The good news – it wasn’t an expensive mistake! 🙂

What do you think?
