This is a creamy, opaque, high shine black. As others have said, it chips horribley no matter what HE base or top coat I use. I don't have luck with any polish lasting long on my natural nails, but this chips off much faster than higher quality polishes.

I don't use this as a regular polish. I use it when I want to experiment with my Konad stamping and practice getting my technique perfect and for seeing how clearly each stamp actually is. I use this color to test with before using my expensive Konad black stamping polish and it saves me a lot of money. I also use it when I am frankening, if I want to darken a polish just slightly I do so one drop at a time to achieve the perfect color. This is a lovely black though, opaque and shiny in two coats. But for longevity and a full manicure I use Orly Liquid Leather.

For 99 cents, this is a good nail polish. It applies very evenly and leaves a very creamy, opaque finish. I would highly enjoy this polish, if it weren't for the chipping. Only a few hours after I apply it, I find lots of chipping. While I love the color, application, and price, it's not worth constantly having to reapply it.

Great formula for the price! Goes on pretty smooth and is opaque for me in 2 coats. Not the most chip resistant, but I get bored of the same color after a few days anyways. My only problem w/ this, is the brush; I find it fairly difficult to work with because I have a hard time getting a neat even line by my cuticles and I prefer the Megalast brush.

I've used Wet n Wild black polish since I was a baby goth at 12. I still have at least one of these on hand at any one time. It's deep in color, very opaque, not streaky and very shiny when it dries. Gripper, one (sometimes two) layer of black, any decorations I want, and top coat. I've used this over my acrylic nails and have had amazing results with it, too. POWERHOUSE!

Consistency is great. The color is great. The price is spectacular (50 cents if I'm lucky - otherwise the original price is 99 cents)
However, for 99 cents, it does chip pretty quickly, even with a top coat. But for some reason, this is the only black nail polish I buy! Love the price and while the wear is short, I think it looks great.

Pretty much opaque with one coat (two is best though). However, beware of the insane chipping, even if you are wearing a good basecoat and topcoat.

Would I buy again? Definitely! I love this nail polish! It's the perfect shade of pure black, and it has nice opaqueness. You just need 1 or 2 coats. It has a great brush that's the perfect size for me. The only con is that the writing wears off after a while, but clear nail polish can prevent that. Other than that, I love everything about it, especially the price. :)

First of all, I don't buy black nail polish to wear on its own - it just looks too stark against my pale skin. I buy black nail polish as 'underwear' for other colors I own that have a transluscent base. So I don't have alot of demands when it comes to a plain black creme; only that it applies well and lasts at least a few days. WnW Black Creme applies amazingly well, it really is that perfect creamy consistency and is very opaque. However, the lasting power just isn't there for me. Even when worn layered under another polish (with top and base coat) I find that it chips within 24 hours (I usually get at least three to four days of wear out of a manicure; more if I'm lucky). Most of the other Wild Shine polishes have better lasting power on me but this one just doesn't hold up :( I will be trying other black cremes (SH Black Out is next) and hopefully will find one that works better with my body chemistry.

This is an awesome black creme polish for the price, I mean come on 99 cents? You can't beat that! The formula is good, it's not too runny & it's not too thick, it's perfect and you only need one coat to reach full opacity. I'm not a huge fan of the brush, but for 99 cents I'm not complaining haha.

Great product, as always. Not goopy like a lot of black polishes are.

Finally a black that is deep, dark and actually applies well. I've tried MAC and OPI's black nail polish shades and both formulas were not good. This polish works well and is now my go to black nail polish shade. It's also great for nail stamping.

I bought this color for Halloween and I was completely surprised to find out that it was such a great formula, especially for the price I paid for it (69 cents). It goes on completely opaque in about 2 coats (no top coat or base coat). My only complaint about this product is the brush. It's too thin for my liking and the polish always ends up everywhere. I don't really like this polish by itself, seeing as black nails aren't really my thing, but it looks gorgeous as a base coat for sheer polishes. I usually put Wet 'n' Wild's "Blue Moon" or "Eggplant Frost" over it to give it a dark but chic look.

I have a love-hate relationship with this polish.
I love it because it is amazing for stamping,. And I love the fact that is is only .99c which means that I can always purchase a backup bottle when I need a new black. for stamping, it works great, it is pigmented enough for the polish to actually pick up on the stamper.
I hate it because I can't wear it alone as a black polishI tried to wear this polish just as a plain black polish, and within an hour it started chipping!
I was quite disappointed, so I decided I would just use it for my stamping, or nail art when I need a black, and it has worked great for that purpose.

This is my first black nail polish. i have lots of wet n wild wild shine polishes. i dont know why people find it too thick. when i tilt the bottle i can see it is a bit on the liquidy side. but that makes it easier to apply. i like how opaque this polish is. i mainly use it to konad and do nail art. plain black polish over the nail isnt really my style. i will repurchase if i ever run out but i highly doubt i will.

Wet n' Wild Wild Shine nail colors are 99 cent polishes available in 24 shades and a variety of finishes. Wet n' Wild promises a brilliant, super shiny finish. Wet n' Wild products are not tested on animals and are made in China. The formula of this polish is formaldehyde, toluene, and phthalate free. I purchased this polish at Rite Aid, but Wet n' Wild is available just about anywhere.
Wild Shine Nail Colors have really unattractive, cheap packaging. A clear, glass rectangular bottle that tapers downwards slightly. The cap is grey plastic and is attached very loosely to the top of the brush. The label is peeling up in the corners and the words rub off the label with barely any contact. It's an all around fail.
Wet n' Wild's Wild Shine Brushes are decent. The brush is long and flat with a lot of give and flexibility. The brush is pretty thin too, it takes me 4 strokes to cover my nail, and I have tiny little fingers. You could practically use it as a striper.
The consistency of Black Creme is on the thicker side, bordering on goopy. It's nothing a drop or two of polish thinner or remover can't fix, but that's besides the point, since a new polish shouldn't be so thick. Despite being a little thicker than it should be, Black Creme applies in relatively smooth, even coats. Black Creme tends to vary in how many coats it needs. Sometimes it's fully opaque in one coat, other times it needs a little bit of help from a second coat. For the most part I feel like Black Creme can be classified as a one coater. It's pretty pigmented.
Black Creme's name pretty much says it all. It's a deep, true black. No tints or tinges, and not a speck of shimmer to be found. It does have the brilliant, super shiny finish Wet n Wild promises, for like five minutes. Once fully dry, the Wild Shine becomes pretty tame. It dries down to a dull, almost rubbery finish that looks pretty awful. But don't worry, you won't have to deal with it for long.
Black Creme starts chipping and peeling right away. Within minutes of application.Top coat doesn't help. Layering doesn't help. This is just one of those polishes that doesn't stay on no matter what you do. Do any of yinz have a polish like that? That come off straight away no matter what you do? God forbid you get your hands wet when you use Black Creme. Wet, peeling polish is the absolute worst.
Now that I've dramatically established how bad the wear time is, I can actually give you a figure on how long you might be able to wear Black Creme. I've tried this polish 8 times, and I've never gotten a whole day's worth of wear. That's the height of unacceptability!
K, so the wear time is appalling, but do you know what's actually pretty good about this polish? The dry time! It dries so quickly. This stuff barely even has a dry time it dries so quickly! I'd say each coat dries in under 20 seconds! I always think its so ironic that Wet n' Wild's Wild Shine polishes dry so much faster than their FastDry range.
I don't know if I got a bad bottle of Black Creme, or if it's a fluke in an otherwise good line of nail polish. I've had several good polishes from the Wild Shine line, so I don't advise you to skip the line as a whole, but I do think you should pass over Black Creme. Unless you're punx and dig the chipped black polish look. I don't think Black Creme is even worth the dollar it costs. Normally I really like anything by Wet n' Wild but this polish is the epitome of fail. I have an extra Black Creme that my mum got me, not knowing I already have it. I'll be giving away the second bottle, hopefully someone else will have better luck with that bottle.

HORRIBLE! when i opened the cap and tried to apply this on my nails, i couldnt. it was all goo. i shook it again, but this time much harder and applied it but it was sticky and clumpy. NEVER BUYING THIS AGAIN. it made such a mess and it was more strings than clumps and my nails were being sufficated under that thick sticky nail polish that didnt even look good. i told my friend the story and she told me that when she opened hers it was alll goo too.

HG black nail polish. For a 'goth' (stereotypes...gotta love 'em :P) girl like me, this polish is great. I bought it, and put it over my DARKdarkdark teal blue (Ulta's Dance Teal Dawn). Now, before I tell you what happened, let me just stress that my teal polish is like 7 bucks. It is pretty expensive for a polish. This cost me a dollar. To get that dark, intense, teal blue I needed to put on THREE coats. Yeah. Three. Woo-hoo for sheer expensive polishes. (And by expensive...I'm a girl in her early teens with no job. Yeah!) For Wet n Wild to cover my polish, it took one coat. Yay for $6 wasted when I could've just bought this. I stress, however, the importance of a base and top coat. They also make this extra shiny :)

Best non-konad black polish for stamping! It's thick and incredibly opaque! I hate WnW's brushes (always either too skinny or too coarse), but I can look past that because this formula is so great. And you can't beat the price!
My picture is the one with the cheetah stamping (Mash plate #23).
Base color: WnW "Private Viewing"
Cheetah stamp: WnW "Black Creme"
Gold accent: Color Club "Gingerbread Man"

Fantastic formula! It applied like a dream and requires 1-2 coats to be completely opaque. The brush is perfect as well as it gives me much control. Super shiny even without topcoat. A must have staple in anyone's nail polish collection
