Early this year Wet n Wild launched new packaging and an improved formula for their Megalast Nail Polishes. The new formula claims to be long-lasting, promising 5 days of wear. They came out with some new colors along with some of the old, with eighteen shades in total (or at least 18 on Wet n Wild’s website).
I wanted to give the new formula a shot, and purchased the shade Sugar Coat, which is a pale, milky peach-pink.
The brush is wide and flat, curving at the tip for a one-sweep application. It’s similar to the brush of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish or Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish. It’s great for those with average to wide nail beds, but may be a little difficult for those with narrow nail beds. I really like the brush, and for my nails, it provides a very even application with less streaks.
Sugar Coat is a really nice natural shade that looks great on it’s own or as a pale pink base for french tips. You really only need two coats, but once of my nails ended up a little streaky, so I ended up painting three coats.
The drying time is okay, it’s not very fast, but with a fast drying top coat, your nails shouldn’t smudge.
I really like this polish, and I’m hoping it lives up to it’s 5-day claim. Regardless, a bottle only costs $1.99, so it’s not a huge loss.
I’ll be updating this post letting you know how long it lasts before chipping or peeling!
Have you tried any colors from the Wet n Wild Megalast line? What do you think of them?
