I bought this on a whim, in the color Thanks a Latte, sort of a pinky coffee color--not a color I would normally buy, but I figured for 1.99 I could take a risk. First off, the color is great. Really attractive (I have tan skin). The brush was a bit poofy and big, but it didn't really bother me tremendously. I finished this with a Sally Hansen topcoat. I will be going back and buying more--particularly want to try the Cougar Attack (I think that's what it's called-it's a glittery copper one). Happily surprised.
I like the price, color selection, but really dislike the thick formula and wide brush. I like a brush that tapers more. I have narrow nail beds but others have this issue too I see. I like the micro glitters best as the base is clear so harder to mess up. But even with those the polish seems a good deal thicker than most right from the start. I have several but will not buy more. I love WnW esp mega last nail polishes, there are not like them.
I just tried to apply my first Spoiled polish, "I Don't Drink Cheap Wine." All I can say is, the person who designed the brush must have been drinking Thunderbird at the time. It's not a brush, it's a FEATHER DUSTER. Horrible and useless.
Overall, I love these polishes! The color selection is pretty awesome, and the formulas are easy to work with and long lasting. The glitters are some of my favorite polishes ever (incl. Jewelry Heist, Trust Fund Baby, Pet My Peacock) but there are other unique colors in the line up (Are Mermaids Real?, Shrimp on the Barbie, I'm Ba-roque, Cougar Attack). I've heard complaints about the brushes being uneven, but I've only gotten one that was like that out of the many colors I've purchased. Plus, these polishes are so cheap that I'm willing to overlook the brush issue. Highly rec. this line, I think they are a total bargain!
I got 2 colors of this polish (show me some skin, toad-ally amazing) and although they are lovely colors and cheap, the brush is awful. They are too wide and thick, which makes it impossible to do controlled strokes and almost always require a lot of cleanup. I will keep them for nail art colors, but probably will not indulge in any more. I say either go for sinful colors (better brush) or pay the extra $$ and get SH (Or china glaze, etc.)
after 25 years, i've finally stopped peeling the whites of my nails off. my nails have finally grown out & i wasn't sure it'd last, so i didn't wanna spend a lot on a single polish. i picked this up @ cvs today w/o even hearing about/seeing it before, so i took a chance & picked 2 up. i got steel the show & hit the brakes. i'm terrible @ explaining colors so i won't, but i put steel the show on first w/ essie's ready to go top coat. i don't know if it's b/c i'm not applying it correctly, but the edges have already chipped a little. i'll see how long it lasts before it chips to the point where i need to do my nails over. i LOVE the brush, but i could see why some wouldn't b/c it's so wide. i have wide nail beds, so it's perfect for me. so far, so good! can't wait to try the next color. i'm uploading a pic, but don't forget this is the first time i've applied nail polish on myself (no joke)!
This product is AMAZING. I was browsing my local CVS this past Saturday and saw these. At only 1.99 I picked one up that looked really pretty. Now let me say, even after using China Glaze, OPI, base coats, expensive top coats, etc my nails NEVER last more than 2 days tops without chipping. EVER. A few weeks ago I got a manicure with OPI on Sunday...by Wednesday I had to take it off since it was chipped so horribly. ( I type all day at work) I put this on Saturday afternoon...it is Wednesday and I do not have a SINGLE chip ( and yes, I have been working every day) ! It is amazing..this out does my expensive polishes HANDS DOWN. I did not use a base boat OR top coat and nails still look amazing....I am going to go back there and get more. This polish is great.
This line is really hit or miss. Some really great colors(though very few that I can't find almost exact dupes for in other similarly-priced brands, namely Sinful Colors), but the brushes just SUCK. I can't believe the other reviewers are praising them. Seriously, I have 5 or 6 bottles from this line & I can't even use half of them because the brushes are THAT BAD. I'll try to use them & the brushes will splay and spread polish *everywhere*, & I just get mad and give up after two nails. They're similar to the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri brushes, only more like ratty little brooms. I'm pretty experienced with wide brushes, but these are so poorly made that they're almost impossible to work with. They're bushy & wiry, with uneven bristles & stragglers everywhere I plan to re-bottle the ones with the worst brushes so I can use them, but still. Awful, awful brushes.
Also, the formula leaves much to be desired. They've got this thick, sheer, runny formula that's just a bitch to work with. It's not the WORST I've ever used, but it's bad enough to make me think twice about doing a mani with this brand. I have to do SO much cleanup when I use one of these cause they never fail to run all over the place & pool in my cuticles.
If WnW fixed these problems, this line would honestly be among my favorites because it's cheap & has great colors but as of now- it needs a bit of work.
Breakfast In Red was the first Spoiled polish I bought, and it turned out to be a great introduction to the line. Absolutely nothing about this polish disappoints, and it actually outdid the expectations I hold for more expensive brands! So far, I can only find this brand at CVS, but I hope it gains more ground in the future.
The formula is just fantastic. The incredibly vivid red color for Breakfast In Red is almost opaque with the first coat -- almost as much so as a Nars polish, no lie -- though I do still advise two coats. (Steel the Show, the next shade I tried, was slightly sheerer.) When you take it off, there's no staining. In between, the polish is pretty durable. Also, it's just pretty! The line includes everything from really outrageous shades to more demure tones. Breakfast In Red is extremely similar to a couple Essie shades that are out there, and Steel The Show (a violet taupe) is actually more wearable than a lot of the currently-trendy earth tones like Chanel's Particuliere and Essie's Chinchilly.
The brush is great too. It's not shaped the same as the usual Wet 'n' Wild brushes; it's broader and is tapered on two sides, resulting in much easier application. (EDIT: Seriously, this kind of brush needs to be in every bottle of nail polish, ever. It is the best.)
At $1.99, Spoiled costs the same as a bottle of Wet 'n' Wild's Megalast polish, but it's a much better value all around. The difference between the two formula types is really striking; you'd think Spoiled was from a completely different company! A big problem I have with most Wet 'n' Wild polishes is their wateriness and uneven application, which is not even remotely a problem with Spoiled. It leaves its parent company, and pretty much any other drugstore nail polish I've tried, in the dust.
My one quibble with Spoiled is a little odd. I'm unimpressed by some of the names they've given their shades. Even "Spoiled" is a little dubious as far as branding goes, but seriously -- "2 Weeks Sober"? "My Silicone Popped"? "Use Protection"? These are gross, in my opinion. I'm not a prude, but dumb names can turn me right off a product. Maybe it's petty of me, but there you have it. (EDIT: Just realized what really bothered me about the names. They're trying too hard to be edgy without actually being clever at all. They sound like they were thought up by a balding middle-aged guy who was trying too hard to sound like a drunk nineteen-year-old socialite princess. We are not amused.)
But overall, I'm ridiculously pleased by how good the Spoiled line is, and it's my opinion that you can't go wrong by giving it a try.
I saw other reviews for this for specific colors but wanted to review it as a general nail polish brand. This caught my eye in CVS a few months ago but I didn't buy it because 1) it's only $1.99 and 2) it really reminded me of the polish brand "Sinful"...the bottles are very similar, and that brand is a chipping mess on me. To me, cheap = chip. I am glad to say....I was wrong. I was way wrong! I had been wanting to try a turqouise blue polish and Spoiled has a BEAUTIFUL color called "Good Karma" and that was my first purchase...at $1.99, what did I have to lose? I applied this last Sunday on both fingers and toes along with a Rimmel basecoat and Revlon "No Chip" top coat. I was thrilled to find that the brush was what I call a "splay" brush, in that it covers the nail in one swipe, just like Rimmel's polish brush does...very nice. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that it did not chip by the end of the day (I did dishes, other household chores). On my toes it didn't chip at all...not even a little all week long. I can't attribute that to Revlon because I've used other polishes with their "No Chip" top coat and had chips within a few hours, although it IS a good top coat. And, the color was AWESOME!!!.....omg, it looked green in some light, blue in others, turquoise in yet others. I wore it all week. I DID have to touch this up by Wednesday, just on the tips. But I have a job where I'm working in a computer lab, not to mention everyday life, so my nails get a LOT of abuse. I went today to buy 2 more colors -- a dark fuschia called "I Don't Drink Cheap Wine" (ha!) and a lilac frost called "Magic Carpet Ride". I had a Wet n' Wild coupon for $1.00 off, so both of them cost me $1.99. Please...that is a STEAL!!!! Would I recommend this product??, OMG, YES!!!!! It wore well, the color/shine was awesome and the price was unbelievably reasonable. I DO recommend and thank you W'nWild....good product.
11/03/12 -- Still love this polish! I have soooo many bottles of this is so many different colors! Just bought "Ants in my Pants" and "Pirates Booty" today. "Ants in my Pants" is a burgandy glitter and "Pirates Booty" is a gold....but I see hints of other color in there. This product line is VERY affordable and I'm telling you, it lasts really well!!! You are either going to love it or hate it....some hate the wide brush (if you have narrow nails, yeah, you won't like it). Some say it's too thick....compensate people!....wipe the brush a bit on the side!! For $1.99, I think this is awesome and the color array is so, so beautiful!! :)
