Mani #7- Wet n Wild Megalast Disturbia

 

Let me start off by saying that I love this color!  It’s a color I’ve been wanting to wear for awhile, but I kept holding off.  Blog reader Sandy also asked me to swatch this color, so that gave me a great reason to wear it!

As you know from my other posts about this Megalast line, I love the polish, formula and brush, and it was no different with this bottle.  Disturbia is a deep deep purple with a hint of purple specks.  The specks are more noticeable in the bottle and on the brush than they are on the nail, but in the right light there’s a hint of shimmer.  In the pictures I’m wearing two coats and Sinful Colors top coat.

I decided to try some nail art again this week.  Using Sinful Colors Casablanca, I painted a bow on each thumb nail, and did dots on the other nails.  Casablanca was found on the Suit Up with Haute displays.  If any of your Walgreens have the big bin of Sinful Colors, you might be able to find it if you dig around.  I love Casablanca as a nail art polish because of how thick it is.  I did some stamping with it before I started my blog and it worked and looked amazing!  I do need to practice my “bow making”, but for the first time I think they look pretty good!

Color(s) Used: Wet n Wild Megalast – Disturbia, Sinful Colors – Casablanca

Nail Art: Bows and dots

Recommendation: I love the Megalast line, so I’d recommend it as an inexpensive drugstore polish option.  If you don’t like the flat, rounded brush, then you won’t like the brushes.  Two coats and you’re good to go!

Mani #4 – Wet n Wild Megalast On a Trip

 

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a simple mani – no glitter, stamping, nail art.  Sometimes it’s good to “go back to basics”.

I have a number of bottles of Wet n Wild Megalast that I’ve picked up from $.99 (or less!) sales after reading decent reviews of this line.  Before I started my blog I wore 2% Milk for a week and it wore very, so I have hope that the other colors will wear just as well.  I’m drawn to purple nail polish and passing this color up was not an option.

The application was decent, although I could have done with a slightly thicker second coat.  There’s still a bit of nail showing, but it wouldn’t be noticeable if you weren’t looking for it.  The Megalast come with a ManiCurve Pro Brush, a flatter curved brush.  You either love it or hate it.  I happen to love the brush and can cover most of the nail in just one pass.  I just have to go back and paint the very edge of my nail.  On a Trip dries to a shiny finish.

I love a shiny finish on a nail, but when I heard about NYC having an inexpensive matte top coat, I grabbed a few bottles.  It’s taken me awhile to break away from the shiny finish and actually try the matte.  I’m so happy I tried it with this polish.  I love how it turned out.  I’ve read that this matte top coat can chip in a few days, which might be why I’ve not tried it on some of my manicures that I’ve wanted to last.

What do you think of On a Trip as a matte?  Do you love or hate the Megalast brushes?
