I really wanted to like this nail polish, but the fact that I had to apply 3 coats was a pain. It took a long time to dry as well, not sure if mine was a defective batch or something. Even with Essie's good to go, it hadn't FULLY dried in over 6 hours. I woke up the next day with marks on my nails...so definitely not going to buy another one. The color looks very pretty in the bottle, but to get that same color on your nails, you would have to apply a lot of coats since its very thin in texture. The first coat applies a thin black color, the second one looks a little better and the third coat fixes everything. Application was a bit streaky. However, the wide brush makes it easy to paint all your nails fairly quickly.
great dupe for sephora by opi - "im with brad" but much thinner. as stated, it takes at least 2-3 coates for opacity. brush is easy to use, dries fairly quickly, lasting power is suprisingly good for a 2$ polish.
love this black based polish that has tiny red shimmer. it almost looks burgundy from far. On my tan skin tone , its beautiful in winter.
The polish is free of toluene, phthalate, and formaldehyde - not many drugstore polishes are formulated this way.
You would definitely need two coats of this polish. The first coat is streaky and muddy - but the second coat makes it all better. The polish dries fairly fast and leaves a shiny finish (without a topcoat) The big flat brush makes it easy to paint your nails. It wears fairly well too- lasted for 3 days without chipping.
Big fan of this color and the polish quality. Running to the store to get more colors
I love this polish! I like many in the Mega Last line from Wet 'n' Wild, this is a current favorite. Its a very deep and unusual red. It appears a dark burgundy in the bottle, with some shimmer. However on my nails its a deep red that flashes a little black, I have never seen any other color like it. Its very shiny, looks very chic with a somewhat metallic finish. Up close and in brighter light you see the gorgeous shimmery red base better.
It makes my nails look very "done," as if I put in more time and care than I actually did.
You need two coats as one is ghastly and in no way indicative of the final outcome you will get when using 2 or 3 coats. With one coat I get a streaky, very sheer awful color that is almost a sheer black green! Crazy because with one more coat you get this gorgeous, would love a car in this full of depth, deep, deep red with subtle but somehow very glowy, shimmer. I like 3 coats but honestly 2 are more than sufficient with no streaking upon that application, and opaque coverage. Its also quite shiny on its own though I love the top coat "Out The Door," on top. The finish is so smooth and the look so sophisticated! I don't know if it's a limited edition or not. I got it late fall and thought it was another WnW megalast in a dark burgundy that I also own. However going through some polishes I realized it wasn't the same and that I had never tried it. Wearing it this weekend I just love it! I find Mega Last polishes to last quite well and also dry fairly quickly even without using a fast dry top coat. I feel like this polish lends an air of sophistication, without breaking the bank or exerting much effort.
