I layered it over blue and it was stunning!
Only prob is the removal, this gets all over your fingers.

Absolute junk. The color is pretty on the bottle, but it took 3 coats to even get a semi-opaque finish. The drying time was longer than expected for a quick dry, and the glitter looks cheap and not distributed evenly. The polish chipped in the first day of wear for me. I guess you really do get what you pay for sometimes.

This color is such a pretty teal with shimmery flecks. It dried fast enough for me, though i always give my polishes a little time to set before going about my day. I didn't have problems with stained nails, but I always use a basecoat with any polish. It lasted 3-4 days before my manicure started chipping. Overall, a pretty color and a great value!
FYI: I recommend that before you buy a polish, open it and take a look at the brush. Wet 'n' Wild sometimes has quality control issues with their brushes.

I think I'm in the minority when I say I really like this brush. I get a medium amount of polish on the brush, then push the brush towards my cuticle, causing the bristles to fan out, creating a perfectly clean edge - no pooling, either. Before applying this color, I put down two layers of basecoat so I didn't experience any Smurf fingers. I have yet to try other shades in the Fast Dry collection, but based on my experience with this one, I'll definitely be getting more.
Edit 8/7/12: Just added a layer of Sinful's "Nail Junkie" over the top of this and now I have
magical glistening mermaid nails!

Oh God.. Please believe me when I say that this is the best nail polish color I have ever gotten my hands on.. This is a bluish, green nail polish with wonderful flecks. I honestly didn't think this nail polish would be all that.. Basically, I underestimated this. Biggest mistake ever. This polish is so beautiful.. It's so unique, but in a way, it's not. It's unique because I don't have a color like this, and it's not unique because this has dupes like nobody's buisness. Ex. Orly, Halley's Comet, the famous O.P.I. Catch Me In Your Net, and the even more famous Zoya Charla. I own none of them because they are wayy to expensive, and are discontinued I think anyways. I love this polish soo damn much.. I'm so in love.. I jist bought this today and tomorrow im buying a second bottle just to be safe.. I love this..

I really love this polish and Wet N Wild Fast Dry polish in general. You get decent opacity at one coat and total opacity at two. It does dry fast- about 5 surface dry and 15 hard dry under a base coat that has completely dried first. It lasted until I wanted it off.
It did stain my nails somewhat even with a base coat and I had to do some work on my cuticles to get it off them. But overall it looks great on if you like shimmery, slightly glittery teals.

I love this color. When I was a kid, I went to classic car shows with my dad. I always loved the old cars with metal flake paint. Thats what this color reminds me of. An old '57 Chevy with metal flake paint. I wish it was a little glossier but maybe thats just the texture of the glitter. It applied opaguely with two coats.

I love this color, but my main issue is the brush. Not sure if mine is just defective or what, but the bristles are all over the place, making it hard to evenly apply. I wouldn't say it dries any faster than other polishes either.

Teal of Fortune is an absolutely gorgeous color. It's a stunning, green-leaning teal with flecks of teal, gold, and a darker, more blue color scattered throughout. The flecks give the polish a lot of dimension and I found myself looking at in in different lighting and finding a lot more depth. But color is really objective, this is something you'd have to see for yourself. It's gorgeously shimmery though. The price point was amazing, I got this polish for under two dollars at a drugstore and you can't beat that. What really fell short for me, though, was the brush. And the formula. The formula is thin, which is fine, but the brush's design makes it load up with polish. Even if you wipe the brush, I still found it hard to control where the polish was. And since it was so thin, I found it flooding my cuticles and just getting all over the place. I'm a pretty patient person, but I found myself growing exasperated at this. After cleanup, I discovered that this polish did stain my skin, nails, and cuticles. For all of that trouble, it's not worth repurchasing for me. Perhaps I got a faulty brush...

Great blue-green shimmery color. (The photos posted above doesn't come close to capturing its prettiness) Polish is thin, but somehow manages to overload the brush, and hard to apply evenly. Especially hard to apply on short nails. The brush was only so so. Pretty good overall for a cheap polish. With some struggle, because I'm used to higher quality polishes such as OPI and China Glaze, I was able to achieve nice results.

I adore this color! It's a gorgeous, shimmery teal with goldish and silverish glitter. In two coats, this polish goes on completely opaque, and looks very smooth and non-streaky. It gains added depth and beauty with a good topcoat- I use Revlon Top Speed.
However, I have ONE issue, and this goes out to all WnW polishes, not just this one. I've purchased a handful of WnW polishes (this one included) that have defective brushes. Defective meaning splayed and uneven brushes, which can pose problems when applying the polish. It doesn't cause streakiness, per se, but it can get polish all over your nails and cause a mess. Other than that, WnW makes a good polish and has a nice variety of colors to choose from, especially for the cheap price. This is another winner from Wet 'n' Wild!

Very pretty polish. It's teal, with a darker blue shift, and gold shimmer/flecks. It's a great summer color. It applies evenly and lasts decently well on it's own, but lasts a long time with a top coat.

This is such a beautiful color. Its a pretty teal with glitter in it. I loved it when I first got it after wearing it a week I wanted to go get my nails done so I removed the polish and it stained my nails I tried to take it off and nothing worked. When I showed up at the nail salon the lady had to drill off the rest of the color. I'm honestly considering throwing it out. Its a gorgeous color but that's not all there is to it if it's going to continually stain my nails ifs not worth it

Beautiful color! I got many compliments the (only) time I wore it. It stained my nails and cuticles pretty bad. Sad, because it really was pretty. I like to paint my nails bright on the weekend but have to go back to mild colors during the work week. With the staining left behind I ended up trashing my nails with remover trying to get it off and was still left with oddly colored tips and skin for a few days after. I would reccomend if you work in an environment that allows bright polish! Plus you cant beat the pricing. This is still my favorite of their line. I havent had any issues with the formulation, but it is on the watery side so it does need 3 coats if you want an opaque look but 2 coats is nice for a bit of nail show through. There was no chipping and it didnt do that weird peeling in chunks like some of the others in their line do. (light purple/pink and light blue) overall is was a wonderful find but I will hold on to it for times I know I can deal with the staining.

I recently ventured into painting my nails brighter, more exciting colors and decided to try this one out.
Omg, I have fallen in love with it. It applies great, dries pretty quickly, looks gorgeous, is pretty long-lasting (and I always have trouble in that department) and is just a great deal, all in all. I have had it for over 3-4 months now, and although I am half way through the product's quality is still superb. Love it!

As has been said before, this is an almost exact dupe of Charla. Gorgeous shimmery, glittery teal blue/green. Love it, love it! It says it's fast dry and IDK about all that...seems to take longer to dry than a fast dry should. Which is annoying in a way b/c this needs 3 coats to reach max potential. Def use a basecoat or you'll have a grand old time removing this one, and have greenish nails when you finally do get it off. All that being said, grab it if you see it, you ll be glad you did. It's worth the minor pains. Truly one of my faves, I must say!

Gorgeous color and I'm of a dark completion in the medium range. Two coats and it's perfect, however you nails will be stained upon removal. Next time I wear it I'll put it on top of another lighter color to prevent staining. I would consider buying this color again.

for 99cents I love this stuff I put opi top coat on top and I'm done!

I absolutely love this color! It shimmers like you wouldn't believe and so many people were asking what I was wearing. The application was great, I think i got away with 2-3 coats. With my base and topcoat (base: SH Hard as Nails Hardener top: SH Insta-Dri Topcoat in the red bottle), my mani did great, no chips after 3 days of wear (when I wanted to change colors). I'm sure if I wanted to, it would last longer.
The only thing that I didn't like was when I was removing it, I wound up with stained my skin and fingernails! I might have to try the foil method to try to avoid that in the future. I am willing to overlook the stains because I think it might have been my removal job. The color is just too pretty to swear it off forever.

My Rite Aid finally got the WnW FastDry permanent display recently, so I decided to try one of the new colors. This color stood out to me because I remember someone on Youtube mentioning that it was a close dupe to OPI Catch Me In Your Net and Zoya Charla (neither of which I own btw). I can't compare them obviously but this is a teal-blue jelly with gold and teal glitter. Really pretty color and nicely opaque. The only issue is that it stained my nail when I swatched it, so I will be using it over a basecoat and may layer it over another polish when I wear it. Other than that, I love the bottle shape (easy to store) and the brush. I'd like to try some other colors from this line as well.
