Okay so now onto pictures of my current manicure! So Wet n Wild has recently launched their new look for their Megalast nail colors and I know a lot of nail bloggers have been going crazy over one shade in particular..."I Need a Refresh-Mint" and I am no exception! It is a great blueish mint green color that as others have pointed out is a great dupe for China Glaze's "For Audrey". (see Nouveau Cheap's review and comparison swatches here) Anyways, I of course fell in love with this color when I saw it in the store and I fell even more in love with it this evening when I used it for the first time. I found that the formula was really great if a little bit on the thicker side. It went on smoothly and if I had really wanted I could have gotten away with one coat since the opacity was amazing! I thought that their "Pro Brush" was going to be too wide for my nails, but honestly it was perfect and I really enjoyed it.
So of course this color is awesome, gorgeous, amazing and yet...I wasn't quite happy with it. I am of the opinion that a person can never have too much sparkle on their nails so I had to add a little sparkle! :-) I thought this was a great time to use "Nostalgic" by L.A. Girl's Glitter Addict line that I randomly found at a Rite Aid near me a while back. As you can see in the picture below it is clear base with teal chunky glitter and some smaller fine glitter suspended within it. I had to do two coats and do a little bit of dabbing to get the chunky glitter to cover the nail more evenly. The base was quite thick and I am sure if I tried to just let this dry on its own it would have taken forever, but with my favorite top coat Orly's "Sec N' Dry" it was pretty quick.
After adding a bit of glitz to this already awesome color I think this is an amazing manicure and I love it! I hope you like it too! :-)
