Poppin’ Nail Color of The Week: Revlon Tangerine

Tell me this nail color ain’t poppin! I have searched for this particular shade of orange since last summer when I wore my first orange nail polish. Once again the poppin’ nail color of the week is fruit inspired. I don’t like tangerines, but I like this nail color.  It is a true summer color, and orange seems to be everywhere as the summer of 2011’s go to hue. I ain’t mad at it. What I am mad at though is Revlon polish in general. This will also be a mini product review.

Fired Up! Orange and Red Ombre Nail Look

I have a fondness for anything that has a faded, gradation look. From clothes, to earrings, to stationery, I’m all about it. As soon as I saw the look on nails, I knew I had to try it. I found a written tutorial online, but since I’m a visual person when it comes to learning, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t grasp it. I searched online for more tutorials, but most were of ombre nails where either the pinky or the thumbnail is darker and each following nail gradually fades out into a lighter color. That’s a cool look also, but what I was looking for was a tutorial for an ombre look on each nail.

Product Review: Wet N’ Wild Fast Dry Nail Color

I am not a fan of fast drying nail polish. It always turns out bad. Like me trying to bake a cake from scratch bad. No pigment, creasy eyeshadow bad. Someone ate the last Thin Mint bad (shout out to the Girl Scouts).

It’s that bad.

However, I really, really, really wanted to try the Wet N’ Wild Fast Dry Polish. I haven’t had much luck with any of Wet n Wild polishes, but this new line looked interesting. It purports to dry in 60 seconds, but that didn’t interest me. The colors did. They looked really bold and bright, and I love bright and bold colors.

The first one I tried was Teal of Fortune.

Once again I had to go with the glittery polish. I can’t help it. The second one that I tried is a color that reminds me of Orange Crush soda called 9.0.2.1. Orange…

9.0.2.1. Orange

I have soooo many positive things to say about the polishes. I have to say first of all though, that it doesn’t really dry in 60 seconds. It dries about average, 2 minutes. Which is fast compared to some polishes out there, but it’s not 60 second fast.

Otherwise, I love them. How much do I love them?  Let me share the ways:

  1. The polishes gave an amazing glossy finish, not requiring a topcoat.
  2. The brush is amazing. They called it a “ManiCurve Brush”, and boy do I wish that every nail polish brand had it. It applies the polish so smoothly, evenly, and effortlessly.
  3. The bright colors definitely stand out.
  4. Even though it doesn’t dry in 60 seconds, two coats still dry amazingly fast. And not just dries, I mean it hardens.
  5. The vivid colors only required 2 coats of polish, and that’s saying a lot for glittery polish.
  6. I was chip free for at least 5 days.
  7. They are only 2 bucks!

The one draw back is that there aren’t a huge range of colors. I counted 18. Which is decent, but I need a SELECTION! Doesn’t matter though, cause these are my new faves. Wet n Wild should be applauded for this affordable, long lasting line of nail polishes. Especially for that perfect brush.

Interesting fact I thought I’d share. Browsing the Wet n Wild website, if you notice the names of the polishes (all except for poor “Orange” UPDATE it is actually called 9.0.2.1. Orange, and I heart it even more now), they are all inspired by some T.V. show, like “Sage in the City” or “Saved by the Blue” and even “Silvivor”.

Corny, and I LOVE it! I heart them even more. You can browse at the complete list here.

Did Wet n Wild nailed it or failed it?

You already know. They definitely nailed it!!!!
