I have this polish in "breakfast in red" (orangey-red) and "my button fell off" (very pale pink). I really like the thick wide brushes. it makes for easy application. I go slow and get nice clean lines. The red is really a perfect polish if used with a separate shiny topcoast. I find it to dry very quickly and it gives highly pigmented, even coverage. I do 2 coats and it looks great. I think you can very slightly see the line of the white part of the nail from underneath but it is slight and doesn't bother me. I love love love the color. it is true red, hold your nails up to something plain red and it is a perfect match. but the slight orange undertone is just enough to flatter your skin tone and add warmth to it. my skin looks instantly more tanned when I use this, instead of more pale or old-ladyish as they can look when I wear a red with a mauve or pink undertones. The "my button fell off" is less outstanding, with streaky coverage. This color is also very flattering to the skin, and it is buildable to an opaque, if you have the patience to do 3 coats and get a clean line along your cuticle. I have thought of using this color as a natural looking french tip too.

I've been putting off reviewing Spoiled because I knew my review would be a lengthy love letter to the brand. I have been so into these polishes lately. Their color selection is always improving. I have Good Karma, Did I Dye It Too Blonde?, Distant Memory, Pretty in Punk, The Parking Meteor Expired, Trust Fund Baby, and Mar-zi-panna. Whew!
The main draw of this brand is the price: $2, but CVS often does Buy 2, Get 1 sales and I have frequently walked away with 3 bottles for just over a dollar each. The only thing cheaper is Dollar Tree or Grocery Outlet.
I have heard some horror stories about the brushes, but have never experienced any issues myself. I really like the wide, flat brush shape. They make it easier and faster for me to do my nails, but I also know that some people just prefer the traditional round brush.
A word of caution: Distant Memory, a very pretty blue-ish/emeraldy green, dries with a very unexpected matte finish. It's still a gorgeous color, but you'll need a top coat if you want that shiny look.
My current favorite is Mar-zi-panna. I've heard this color described as robin's egg and Tiffany blue. I just love it. When I found it, I had been searching for weeks for a pastel blue or green. Mar-zi-panna is the perfect compromise. It's a lovely sea foam color that looks blue or green depending on the light. It chips more than I'd like, but it's worth the risk.

I own two colors in this line (exclusive to CVS) - "Mar zi Panna" and "Are Mermaids Real?" Mar zi Panna is a beautiful matte finish robin's egg (or Tiffany & Co.) blue. Are Mermaids Real?, in the bottle, is a medium-range purple with flecks of gold shimmer. I'll start with my review of Mar zi Panna:
This goes on a bit streaky, but dries into a beautiful opaque finish even with one coat. This lasted on my nails, after pretty moderate wear (doing dishes, taking a shower, typing, etc.) for thee days before showing signs of chipping just along the tips of my nails. This is one of my favorite nail polishes in my collection.
Are Mermaids Real? is a bit deceptive. In the bottle it looks brighter than it dries. On the nail, after applying two coats, it's more of a shimmery, smoky amethyst color. It goes on thick, but streaky. It takes more than one coat for full coverage. It's pretty, but this one does not dry very well at all. Maybe I'll try it without a base clear coat first, because even with a completely dried coat of clear base (Sally Hansen XTreme Wear) it stays sticky after an hour of application, which shows every little ding and smudge.
I would buy Mar zi Panna again. And again, and again. It's a gorgeous color that goes on fantastically and dries to a stunning finish. Are Mermaids Real? is another story. While it's pretty, it's not worth the hassle of it streaking when brushing it on or how tacky it stays. But you really can't complain when it comes to a polish that costs less than $2. On that token, these are great nail polishes.

I got the color black momba which is a beautiful dark silvery shade. my problen however is that this polish NEVER dries if you have the time to sit for an hr and maybe it will dry then but concidering it definitly needs two cotes its rediculous. if it actually dried it would be amaxing but as is its just frustrating.

I haven't experienced any of the brush issues most have experienced. I bought two, and both have evenly-cut brushes that also evenly cover my nails. The colors are numerous and gorgeous, and after Day 4 I have experienced a very tiny bit of tip wear (with Wet n' Wild clear nail protector and Sally Hansen's Dry and Go Drops). I cannot comment on the drying time because I used the Sally Hansen fast dry product. There was no problem with streaking, however, and it took 2-3 coats for full opacity. This nail polish is thicker than your average nail polish, so you ought to dab quite a bit of the nail polish from the brush on the edge of the bottle, just so you don't get a goopy mess on your nail. I like this nail polish and it's price overall, I just wish the nail polish wouldn't require more than 2 coats at times. Otherwise, this would be no-fuss and my favorite nail polish.

I have been having so much fun with these polishes lately! They are exclusively at CVS, and they are $2 a pop. If I can't find something else to spend my CVS dollars on, I pick up a couple of these.
My favorites are The Parking Meteor Ran Out (deep dark teal blue with shimmer), Use Protection (blue green glitter), Deeper Dive (turquoise blue gel with smaller glitter), Show Me The Money (green glitter), and Pirate's Booty (gold and copper glitter).
Also good are Bite Me and I Don't Drink Cheap Wine (both dark vampy reds with shimmer).
Less good is My Button Fell Off (pale pink cream - opaque but streaky).

I have only purchased one Spoiled nail polish. Lox-y Lady is the shade I have, which is an orangey pink color...but I am not very good at describing colors :)
Anyways, it's completely opaque with one coat. I love a polish where I can slap on a coat and be done. The formula is pretty thick but I haven't had any problems with streaks or anything.
The brush is very wide and not that great. Poorly made. But, I don't really mind it too much. The wider brush does work pretty well with my nails. I have read about how the brush will start to splay out...so far that hasn't happened to me.
Overall, for about $2 a pop, it's a decent polish. Like I said, I have only purchased Lox-y Lady (which is my current mani! No chipping 3 days in!) but I plan on picking up several more the next time I am at CVS.

This is the spoiled nail polish from wet n wild, sold exclusively at cvs.
I have the colors my button fell off, show me some skin, trust fund baby, and I gotta confection to make (my favorite glitter polish, extremely opaque and covers the whole nail evenly in just 1 coat.
I love how it has a wide brush, especially for my thumb, but it is a little hard to do my pinky and not get polish all over my skin.
The color selection is AMAZING! There are 72 polishes and they all range from neons to neutrals. And with each about $2, why not try them all!
The only downside about these polishes is that they are very thick and a tad streaky, but that is a huge thing I look for in polishes to NOT have, so that's why I gave it a 3.
Other than that, its a great polish. I recommend you try it out for yourself to see how you like it.

I decided to try this brand because they had the perfect coral I was looking for. I agree with the others about the brush, it's super wide. The polish goes on super thick, reminds me of cake batter! You can't spread it much like other polish brands either. I gave it 2 for the price and color choice. I'll stick with OPI and Essie, you get what you pay for.

Doesn't cover well. Isn't shiny at all. Dull when it dries. So good price and great bottle did not make up for inferior product. Won't buy again. And I have 5 daughters and three granddaughters. Not a good buy. Good bye.
