I really dislike WNW polishes. I've tried many colors, and even with orly bonder basecoat and seche vite/poshe/revlon topcoats, it chips or peels in under 12 hours. They also apply very streaky for me. I won't be trying any more WNW polishes. (but their eyeshadow is awesome!)

This is actually a review for the fastdry polishes, but I don't see any of the colors I've sampled so far already listed, nor a generic listing for their fastdry polishes.
I think I've found my new favorite quick drying nail polishes! Sally Hansen Insta Dry was my go-to before this, but their brush is horrible and the polishes seem to be a little thick to me and require some skill to apply without gunking up. I also own several bottles of the Revlon Top Speed polishes, but I'm not really excited about them. They smell really strange, and with the exception of Ocean, I'm not a big fan of the color selection. I paid $1.99 for the Wet 'n' Wild polishes, and SH or Revlon are at 2-3 times as much.
I discovered the Wet 'n' Wild fastdry polishes at Walgreens the other night when I was looking for some green and yellow polish as I was attending a couple of Super Bowl parties this past Sunday. Obviously, I didn't want to spend a fortune on colors I don't generally wear, so these seemed to fit the bill. Since then, I've gone back for 10 more bottles! So far, I've tried The Wonder Yellows, SaGreena the Teenage Witch, Blue Wants to Be A Millionaire, and Teal or No Teal.
First off, I'm impressed by the brush. It's not perfect, but it isn't wide or obnoxious like the Sally Hansen Insta Dry brushes. At first I was picking up too much color (the brush is on the thicker side), but once I got the hang of it, it went on pretty easily and I didn't need to spend a ton of time with cleanup.
The polish is pretty thin, and it required 4 coats to get the opacity I wanted was looking for. On some nails, 3 coats was fine, but a few nails still had a few minor "bald spots", which were taken care of with the 4th coat. However, I actually prefer polish to be thinner side since it's easier to apply and goes on more smoothly without gunking up. Plus, thick polish seems to take longer to dry and is more susceptible to nicks and smudges or sheet marks (I generally do my nails before bed). These polishes dried pretty quickly, so I didn't mind having to apply an extra coat.
My process: I put on an episode of Psyche (no commercial breaks) and applied the Mavala Protective Base Coat. I waited about 3 minutes before applying the first coat of Teal or No Teal. I waited about 2 minutes between each of the next three coats. Then I applied the Mavala Colorfix top coat, waited a minute and applied a couple of drops of the Zoya Hurry Up Speed Dry Drops. My manicure was completely dry well before the credits rolled.
The colors are quite vibrant and shimmery. Teal or No Teal is especially lovely and iridescent, although I think it's more turquoise than teal. If you put the bottles side by side, it's almost identical to the Sally Hansen Insta Dry in Blue Streak, but the shimmery bits in Blue Streak seem slightly chunkier (not sure how else to describe it). I actually prefer the Wet 'n' Wild on my nails though. It somehow seems more subtle and wearable and when it catches the light, it seems to have a hint of gold to it, which I like. Blue Streak seemed is a little bit too candy blue for my tastes.
Blue Wants to Be a Millionaire was the only one so far that was disappointing. It really more of a glittery top coat than the pretty blue in the bottle. I'm going to try a base coat of a nude color polish to see if I can get the blue to show up in this one.
So far, these are overally a great buy. It's hard to beat the price, too, and I like them a lot better than either the Revlon or Sally Hansen offerings. I can't wait to see what other colors they release in the future.

Wow i am sold for the performance of this polish.!!! its so great. very smooth and easy application. quality comparable to OPI and China Glaze.. which are my favs nail polishes of alll time until i found this. I love the price. found it at 5 below and its works great. i stop purchasing OPI because of this.! TRY IT.! its evrything that u will every wanted from a nail polish. but cheap. i would totally believe that this is an OPI polish if it werernt in wet n wild packaging.. since the quality is reallllyyy that GREAT.! im am just soooo happy that i found cheaper alt. for pricy polishes

You can find this at almost every drug store for a dollar and maybe cheaper if you wait for the sales. Wet and Wild may be cheap, but that does not mean cheap quality either. Most of their polishes only need one coat to give a full, colored shine. No streaks at all! Drying time is very decent given its price. Usually when I'm done painting my last nail, the first one will by dry by then. I highly recommend it.

i picked up two of these at walmart for 93 cents apiece. definitely a good price!
i've only used the color rain check so far. it's a beautiful blue shade, and i think i'll use it again in the fall.
my main problem with this nail polish is that it chips LIKE CRAZY, even with a good topcoat. i've never had nail polish chip after a day until i tried this one. it's been three days, and the chipping is getting worse. it's really a shame since i really liked the color.
i may or may not repurchase since i like the color so much but i cannot stand the poor lasting power!
NYC has similar nail polishes at about about the same price, and they last me way longer.
overall, i'd give it 2.5 lippies, but i rounded up to be nice and also because, like i said, i would reconsider purchasing if i can't find a similar color nail polish that lasts longer :)

I get the cheapest one (the 99 cent one) and they are great. I have trouble with streaking on some polishes, but it isn't as bad as LA Colors. I really like the colors and when I start running out, I tend to mix them for a different look.
I like how the package is slim enough to fit a size 6 show box without taking up too much space.
About the staying power: it does chip for me with a top and base coat. But I don't mind since it's very cheap.

I was in a hurry at Walgreens to get cheap yellow nail polish and bought this since it was the first thing I saw. It was only two dollars, and I was really worried it wouldn't work well. However, I have had it on for over 10 days on my toenails and it hasn't chipped at all! The color is beautiful, and I will buy We 'n' Wild polish from now on, because the price is amazing and so is the product!

I have already bought several wet n wild nail polishes. None of them have disappointed me yet. With a base and top coat, the polishes can last up to a week. I really like some of the colors, especially the coral, and with the price you're paying for...how can you pass up for it? I guess in the long run, it depends on each person. Personally, I have gained positive use from it.

I passed on these at the drugstore for a long time before I actually tried them for I thought that they would be chippy and low quality. Boy, was I ever wrong!! These wear like iron on me!! With Barielle hydrating ridgefiller and Seche Vite topcoat layered over winning nails toughcoat, I can get a week or more out of these and I'm also sure to wrap the tips with all layers. Amazing for a $1 product! Blue moon is my fave of all I've worn so far and it's a lovely dark blue. Don't knock these before you try 'em!

These are ONLY 1/1.99$ pretty cheap and hellagood quality. I think the color selections are awesome but I think they need more matte selections. I'd compare any nail polishes to OPI, with a good top coat like Seche Vite, any nail polish can look good !
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Color selections for this nail polish are pretty decent. It's only 99 cents so you can't expect too much. One coat is pretty opaque with the ones I have. It chips quickly even just after washing dishes or something so i need a good top coat. My nail Wet n Wild nail polishes have gotten thick and goopy but I've had them a while. Instead of spending a lot on plain old black and white polish I buy these and they work fine.

don't have money? wet n' wild polish is your best bet. incredibly cheap nail polish, and with a decent selection of colors.
however, you do get what you pay for. the polish chips extremely easily (lasting power: 1-2 days), which is a bummer.

Due to my experience with these polishes, a majority are good, however it is a hit and miss when it comes to this brand. Overal, very good polish for the price
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
These colors are good if you want to experiment but for just 1.70 more you can get Sally Hansen hard as nails- lasts MUCH longer and is MUCH higher quality. I'd spend the extra. These chip after 2-3 days =( Great for kids.
Edit: Oh yeah, and they get REALLY goopy by the time you use half a bottle =(

This brand works for me because the polish is thin. The polish spread easily and looks good, not gloppy. It's easier to clean up the cuticles than thicker polishes I even like the brush. Unfortunately, it's difficult to find a full selection of polishes at the drugstores in my area.

I was really suprised with these polishes, i have two. I wasnt expecting much but i have to say, theyr brilliant!! They go on really smoothly, really pigmented, a little goes a long way, two coats is plently, gorgeous colours, super super chip resistant. All for £1.87! Go Wet 'N' Wild!!

This is the worst nail polish I've ever used.
It get's really, really goopy. It chips off instantly even with a top coat. It's really hard to open the top off from the bottle. And the colors are really sheer so you need like 3 coats.
If you need to buy a cheap nail polish color for one day- then go ahead and buy this. But if you are looking forward to using a color all the time- don't buy this stuff. I'd recommend this to people with kids to give to their little daughter if she wants to paint her nails instead of giving her an expensive nail polish.

Lately I've been buying a lot of this because I've gotten into Frankening. I'm trying to hone my skills on the cheap stuff before moving on to the more expensive stuff. Overall WnW has very good polish and they're mostly dirt cheap. I've had a couple of bottles that were kind of goopy and streaky, but some thinner helped. I only wish they came out with more colors.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Very good polish for the price. I just wish there was a bigger color selection. Easy to use, glides simply, and dries quickly. I will be buying more colors in the near future.
