Wet n Wild Heatwave

Guess what today is, ladies?


If you guessed Wednesday, you'd be correct.  However, you would not have encompassed the most exciting part of today: MY BIRTHDAY!


Unfortunately, I don't have the most exciting polish in the world to celebrate this momentous occasion, but I figured I would show you a color that is just so me (plus I thought it was appropriate given that today's weather is about 100 degrees in NYC today).  


Wet n Wild Heatwave called my name from the display shelves for the past few weeks.  After my polish bestie sent me my first two Megalasts, I've been hooked on this brand, and to be frank, I'm actually surprised how long I held out before I caved and took Heatwave home with me.


As with the other Megalasts, the application was phenomenal.  I love the pro-wide brushes and how perfectly the color builds up without any cuticle pooling or uncomfortable thickness.  And the color, oh the color!  A neon coral red with slight orange undertones, this is the perfect red polish for the summer.  I know, I know, I say every red is perfect, but this one really is.  But don't quote me on this the next time I swatch another red please.


This is three easy, breezy coats.


I really do melt for these shades and I've realized that my wish list is quickly growing in orange-based reds...and reds in general.  I doubt that's going to change in the near future though, despite the fact that I have been converted to the dark side by Nory and am collecting greens and yellows these days.  Don't worry, loyal readers, I'm not going all glitterati just yet.


Important Final Birthday Note
It has come to my attention that apart from me being born, I have hit over 1,000 followers.  Since these two exciting events somewhat coincide, I'll be having a bit of a blow out giveaway.  I've already picked up a special thing or two but I'll be announcing it once the goodies are complete.  Stay tuned!
