Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color - Caribbean Frost - Review

 Wet n Wild says "just like that favorite top in your wardrobe, its always better to have it in more than one color. With a wide range of trendsetting shades from cremes to bold metallics to vibrant effects, you can find all your favorites and add new ones to your collection. Applies quickly and easily, leaving a brilliant, super shiny finish". Thanks for the fashion advice Wet n Wild. The Wild Shine nail line offers 27 shades with a formaldehyde, toluene, and phthalate free formula. I had my eye on Caribbean Frost for a while and finally bought it during a recent sale at Rite Aid. I got my .43 fl oz (12.7ml) bottle for just .50c, it normally sells for .99c. Wet n Wild does not test on animals. This nail polish was made in China.
 Packaging for the Wild Shine lacquer line is plain and pretty cheap. A rectangulr glass bottle topped by a grey, tall, round cap. I've had a lot of trouble with these bottles leaking. Not just a little bit of polish that makes the cap hard to remove, but I'm talking the whole bottle leaking out. Not cool at all. The front label; which despite being on a brand new bottle, is already peeling up in the corners; features the name of the product. The back of the bottle contains a full ingredient list. The Wild Shine brush is long, quite thin, and on the stiffer side. It takes several strokes to cover the nail. Kinda difficult to work with, but it gets the job done.
 Caribbean Frost has to be one of the most beautiful shades of nail polish ever. Its a rich, shimmering, metallic green leaning teal. So interesting and pretty. This shade is definitely on the darker end of the teal spectrum. I think this is the kind of color that is appropriate during any time of the year, its rich enough to wear during autumn or winter, but also bright enough for wear in the warmer months. I personally prefer wearing Caribbean Frost on my toes.
 Caribbean Frost's application is really nice! This polish is almost opaque in one coat, fully opaque in two coats. Each layer goes on evenly, which surprised me because the formula seems very thin. Ironically, I fin d that Wet n Wild's Wild Shine line dries significantly faster than their FastDry line. That holds true for Caribbean Frost, each coat dries in about 40 seconds. I've had variable wear from this polish, on average I get about 3 days of wear with moderate chips and tip wear. Decent, but not great.
I love the color of Wet n Wild's Wild Shine nail polish in Caribbean Frost! This polish is great for year round wear; it's pretty, unique, and has some depth to it. Application is pretty good and so is the wear, especially considering that this polish is just a buck, The only thing I wish would be improved upon is the packaging. I would probably repurchase this nail polish and I recommend it if you're a fan of teals.
