I purchased Private Viewing yesterday at the CVS Beauty Clearance Sale for 99c. I've been eyeing this particular shade for quite a while, but it was a tiny bottle and I wasn't so sure if I'd like it on my skintone. Well, the half off sale solved that for me.
I tried it on right when I got home, so I can't comment on if it really does "megalast". I used two coats to achieve an almost opaque look but you should probably use three in order to perfect it. The color is a VERY subtle nude. I can only describe it as a light tan, beige-y shade that almost gave me mannequin hands. It's a hair too tan to give me full-on mannequin hands but it's quite close. I do love the color though, since it's so subtle it will go with everything! In short, this is a beautiful, affordable nude.
The dry time was very quick which I loved, but let's get to the brush. It was too big for the bottle and just... Wonky. It's also quite wide and thick which I wasn't expecting, but I can deal.
I got this at Walmart for about $3CAD. I find it to be a little pricey since it's such a small bottle, and the formula is streaky and too sheer for my taste. It takes about 3 thick coats for me to get it to be opaque. Right now I have on one thin coat and one super thick second coat and I can still see the lunulae through the polish. It doesn't look bad, looks very natural. but I like my polish to be opaque. Also, the brush feels very dense to me. I think that gets in the way of it bending when you apply the polish so it's a little tricky.
The colour is very similar to Rimmel's Bare Naked. If you're a fan of that colour but you don't like the fine shimmer and the opaqueness, then Private Viewing would be good for you.
I love how fast this nail polish dries and I really like the colour. It also lasts very long and is very durable. However, I don't think I'll be buying it again, unless they make the bottle bigger or they sell it for cheaper. I'd rather have nail polish that lasts fewer days but is more opaque.
Someone else said it, this is a great "go to nude." more warm beige-y tan than a taupe as its warm in tone to my eyes. Enough pigment to show, but nothing flashy, a great, appropriate, wear anywhere polish. I like unobtrusive colors if my outfit, or maybe lip or eye makeup will be standing out. This like all the rest in this line, wear like iron on me, chip resistant, works in manis or pedis so great value. Good consistency, 2 coats are perfect, good brush, too wide=a lot of clean up after, too thin=streaks. Cheap, $1.99 (U.S), but does not look it!
This is a dark pinkish beige color, it looks great with my asian skin color. The brush is the only issue, I even thought it was deformed. I have steady hands, so I can deal with it. I will buy it again.
I have been really into wet n wild products lately, but I was really disappointed in this nail polish. The packaging is really cute and you can't beat the price of wet n wild, but the color didn't look that great against my tan skintone. Also, the formula was good and easy to apply, but I have no idea why they would include an angled brush.
Love this nude shade, have it on now. Great neutral color to go with any outfit.
Nude Nail Polish on a budget! I had been eyeing this nail polish for a while in target, because it was a nude and also it was on the wet n wild line, meaning it was inexpensive. I decided to pick it up, and OMG I LOVE IT. It is a pinky/peachy nude that I would recommend to medium/tan/dark skin tones! It looks so subtle, natural on my hands. And I don't know if this will make sense, but it makes my hands look so feminine/dainty! I wash the dishes a lot, so my hands doesn't look as soft/smooth as it should. The polish is very sheer, but no biggie, since it still has a smooth application; It wasn't thick or goopy at all. I used three coats, two may probably be enough but I used one more as a cherry on top~ I have also come to the conclusion that I like the fat, short nail polish brush, as it helps me control better on where my polish goes. The only prob i have is I wish it came in a bigger size bottle, but hey for 1.99 it's still good. Go and pick it up! You won't regret it :)
This is the perfect nude for my caramel skin tone. Some nudes have a tendency to look too pale or too dark, but a perfect peachy nude. Wet n wild megalast nail polishes are very vibrant and awesome. This has a very creamy texture for the natural look. This is one of my faves. The curved brush is excellent for precise application. I used two coats and that is enough for me. Wet n wild used to be known for too much frosty ,cheap looking shades now they are making more cremes, which is good.
This is my new go to nude. Im NC50-55 and have had a hard time finding a good nude. I've tried colors like OPI samoan sand, sand in my suit, and san-tantonio with no avail. I decided to pick up private viewing totally expecting it to be a fail because I'm cool tones and private viewing is very peach/pink based and especially with it costing 1.99. It applied very sheer and streaky with the first coat, but I didn't give up I applied two more thickish coats ans it was perfect. I was shocked. At 1.99 it's a steal will def repurchase.
The formula isn't sticky, it applies smooth. The tip of my brush was uneven, which made it tricky when applying the polish close to my cuticles, but other than that it's a nice nude color after 3 coats
