Back in Black with Wet n Wild

As I've previously mentioned, I recently received several Wild Shine polishes from Wet n Wild to review for you, my lovely kittens. At this time, I'd like to feature a true gem, *Black Creme. I've got to start by saying, I have been hearing for months about what a fabulous black this is. I can't imagine I was alone in thinking, "For 99 cents retail, could it REALLY be as great as everyone says?" Well, to answer that question, YES, it's that great! This polish was smooth to apply, super-shiny and...wait for it...opaque in ONE coat! I applied a second coat, just because, but honestly, it probably wasn't necessary at all. Behold, two coats, outdoors, in all it's glory:
I really can't say enough about how much I LOVE this polish! I have only finished bottles of polish a few times in my life, maybe three, but I'd say it's a safe bet that I will finish this baby.

I love love love this polish alone but, being a sparkly kind of girl, I wanted to jazz things up a bit so I added a coat of KleanColor Aurora. This is a unique (in my collection, anyway) sheer polish with both regular small and hexagonal holo glitter. There are also glitter stars scattered throughout this polish but none came out during this application. Here is the final look.  (I used Avon Nail Experts Nutri-Boost Nutri-Plus as my top and base coat):
Overall, this makes for a fun look and I will definitely wear this combo again in the future.

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts! <3

very cool! I stopped buying black nail polish because I had to do way too many coats...since you use different brands..Elizabeth loves the NEON colors...but they take way too many coats to get the color she likes (can't remember the brand)..do they have NEONS?

Kari said...

I don't own much by way of neons but I did get a set of Color Club ones in a swap with a friend. I think you commented on them, actually. They are definitely bright, though they aren't shiny, at all, much more matte in appearance, though I'm sure a top coat would fix that right up. I will definitely ask among my "sources" and see what I can find out for you! ;)

I would always kill for a good black! I'm using Rimmel's Black Cab atm, it does the job but yours looks better! xx

Kari said...

I was so skeptical, Lisa, truly, but I really do love it!

I never tried the CC one Krissy but yeah, I am totally crazy for this WnW. It will, for sure, be my "go to" black. ;)

Kari said...

Ooh, this one comes in a grave shaped bottle? How FUN! Mine is just in the regular WnW bottle. I will have to be on the lookout for that one. :)
