Wet n' Wild is a Force of Love

My first experience with Wet n' Wild was less than great. It was even less than good. Less than okay. Less than meh. Less than bad. It was pretty darn awful. But I saw these colors, and they were too pretty to resist, so I figured that everyone/thing deserves a second chance.

First up we have Wet n' Wild Night Prowl.

Guess what... formula was FINE! OMG! It certainly wasn't deserving of any unnecessary accolades, but it got the job done. I was so happy because this means I can buy cheap nail polish! \o/

I'm gonna say inside...

Two coats. I really liked this. It is *kinda* like Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance minus the big glitter, but not really. I don't think this would really kill any lemmings, but it's a nice polish nonetheless!

I also picked up Wet n' Wild Blue Moon

What I like about this polish is that even though it is dark, you can still clearly tell that it's blue and not black. And in the sun, just... ZOMG. There's this greenish shimmer and it's so fantasmal. Just. Love.

Oh! The dark blue provided a perfect base for me to try out my supposed Lippmann ATU dupe... Icing Force of Love.


Eeeek.... So much LOOOVE! AMAZEBALLS. Here are Scrangie's pics of ATU and BR. As you can see, Night Prowl is nowhere close to BR. But I think that Force of Love would be really close to ATU if you started with a jelly blue, say Revlon Royal, did one coat of Force of Love, another coat of Royal or any dark blue jelly, and then finished up with Force of Love. That would give it the squishy, layered-glitter look that ATU has.

This is definitely good enough to satisfy my lemming! Happy day!

  1. Very nice swatches!
    Night Prowl is what I use as a base when I wear the real deal, Bad Romance!

  2. Blurry index finger, my love! If you can manually adjust aperture on your camera, a bigger f-stop puts the middle ground and background in focus.

  3. I have night prowl also. Mine is terribly thin and hard to work with. :( it has to be layered like 5 coats to get the bottle color. I was thinking it would be cool to franken it with big hex pink glitter, like ChG Doll House and a dash of purple for the base. I just got to get my hands on the glitter now...

  4. @Allya: I'm jealous! It's so purty...

    @Anna: I have no idea about anything you just said.

    @eslie: Do it! That would be so awesome.

  5. @Anna - Lol, what you don't understand is that her index finger is blurry like that in real life.... nothing a camera adjustment can fix. ;)
    High five for novice photographer! I'm one too!
