After being inspired by all the ladies on Instagram with the beautiful glitter nails, I came across this Wet & Wild Megalast set at Walgreens, and had to purchase it! Originally, I wanted Essie, but their polish is $8 a bottle. This set comes with color, glitter, and topcoat polishes. Claims 5 day, long wearing, chip resistant.
Will confirm or deny at the end of the week. 🙂
To accomplish this look, I:
Applied 2 coats of the Undercover polish. What’s awesome about this polish is the Manicurve Pro brush, which perfectly contoured to my cuticles…Made for an easy application…nice and neat!
I then added the Party of Five Glitters polish. After the first coat, I found I needed to add another coat to get the glitter affect I desired. For me, that was just enough to kick up the glitter factor, without being overwhelming or gaudy. According to the label, this should dry in 60 seconds.
Finally, I added the top coat, which, according to the label, doubles as a top and bottom coat. This is supposed to be another quick drying polish; however, I found that it didn’t dry as quickly as the label purported. No worries; I helped along the process by using my hotel hair dryer 🙂
I like it thus far, and folks on instagram seem to like it as well. Walgreens is having a sale; buy 2 individual polishes (@ $1.50 each) and get the 3rd free, here in San Antonio. They have a wealth of gorgeous colors! Check them out!
