Wet n Wild Megalast On a Trip

I have been intrigued by the new Wet n Wild Megalast bottles and while I've found myself stopping for a few seconds at the displays, I never brought myself to buy any.  The colors are all really lovely and the perfect palette for the girly polish lover so it still shocks me that I haven't personally purchased these.


Nory, my polish fairy godmother, must have read my mind and sent me two purples from this collection in a recent swap.  On a Trip is an absolutely gorgeous shade of blurple, that reads more blue in my swatches than it looks in real life.  The color is luuuush and made me feel so chic wearing it.  I'm beyond obsessed with cremes that pack a punch since its all about the color alone.


The brush on these new Megalasts are somewhat wonky; while wide and uneven, the brushes oddly worked well on my nail beds (maybe my nail beds are wide and uneven??).  On top of a very thick formula (I highly recommend applying two, very thin and controlled coats; it will be opaque and self-leveled by the second coat), I imagine some girls will have issues with these polishes.  For the price, availability, and color selection, I hope most don't write these off just yet.



I actually swoon at these shades, although like I said, this is a tad more of a deeper purple in real life.  Polishes like these are my security blanket: I know that I can wear these with a black and white outfit and still feel entirely pulled together, accessorized, and trendy.  


Okay, I realize I'm depending a helluva lot on a polish for my sense of public readiness, but I understand that I'm delusional.  At least I admit it, and that must be a first step for something.


Have any of you girls tried this new-ish line?  Thoughts?

  9. It's funny you think it's soft on the eyes.  While I really love this color, I think of it as a brighter hue.  Go figure!
