Wet n Wild Tickled Pink

During my Great Pink Phase of Winter 2012, I struggled with whether or not I should buy the Wet n Wild pastel pink.  I had only previously tried one other Wet Shine Color and found it to be a really cheap and chipping polish.  But I really did love the brightness of the pastel in Tickled Pink and during a 69 cents Wet n Wild sale, I scooped it up.


At first, as with many white-based pastels, Tickled Pink applied really streaky.  After one more coat, the polish was opaque and smooth, although there was a super slight bald spot that I blame more on my application technique than the polish.  This polish has a tendency to be watery, so I recommend two or three very thin coats to get a really even and smooth finish.



For a color so simple, I received a number of compliments on this beauty.  I think most women respond to a bright yet light pink, since it's visible without making a very loud statement.  This is about as office-friendly as a stapler, ladies, so I highly recommend this for all you girly nine-to-fivers.


Will you be picking this beauty up for spring?

  6. Wow, I wish I saw this post earlier today! I was at Walgreen's picking up a white WnW, and they are having a 69 cent sale. I do not know if they had this one, but I am going back this weekend to look!

  7. I'm sure you won't have a hard time finding it.  It's in the core display at Walgreens.

  8. I think they may have fixed their formula a bit because it's really much improved since the first time I tried it, just a tad too watery for my taste.

  9. Grab it while it's on sale, it's sooo worth it.  And if you plan on doing a lot of layering in the near future, scoop up the black one also.

  10. Hahahahaha as a stapler? Very pretty pink and love how inexpensive products can sometimes give the effect and color you want without having to spend tons of money.

  11. Yup, a stapler :)

    And I agree. I'm always more pleased in finding cheaper polishes I love than a more expensive one that is just okay.
