WET N WILD: Fall 2012 Pick Your Poison Collection [Part 2]

Pin It As I promised Part 2:

 [L->R] Poison Ivy, Root of All Evil, and Deadly Dose

The other half I called "the darks" and these aren't exactly bright but I considered these "the bolds" of the group. If you missed the first part of this group of 6 polishes that make up the Fall 2012 Wet n Wild Pick Your Poison Collection, you can find it here :] Onward to the rest of the collection!

I guess the green isn't so bold but the other 2. I am really liking these polishes and I hope you are too! Here are my bottle shots of the 3 I'm going over today:

  [L->R] Poison Ivy, Root of All Evil, and Deadly Dose

Again, like the previous 3, the above shot is a brighter shot to show the detail of the polishes. Here are my swatches:

This polish is why I went searching for this collection! I looooooove deep, dark greens! However, I don't have a super dark green with shimmer so I was all over this bad boy! Poison Ivy is another a super awesome dark green with just enough shimmer, not too much! I did 2 coats and all was well :] Ugh this polish just kills me! <3

Mmm love me some bright blue polish! Root of All Evil is exactly that, a bright blue with shimmer. I could wear these blues all year! I did 2 coats. I was asked to compare ROAE to Zoya Song. Well, I took it a step further and compared Root of All Evil to 3 polishes.

[L->R] Essie Aruba Blue, Wet n Wild Root of All Evil,
Zoya Song and Sinful Colors Ciao Bella

[Pointer -> Pinky] Zoya Song, Wet n Wild Root of All Evil,
Essie Aruba Blue and Sinful Colors Ciao Bella

Loooooook at all those pretty blue polishes! My verdict?

Essie Aruba Blue: I think this is the closest. No dupe though. But, if you have one you don't need the other honestly. The Essie is a tad bit brighter.
Zoya Song: Same shade of blue but Song has very obvious glitter mixed in and is a smidge darker.
Sinful Colors Ciao Bella: I think this was probably the closest but Ciao Bela is more shimmery and glitzy than all of these. Might be my favorite out of the 4. Mightttttt be!

Last but not least! Deadly Dose is a shimmery, brassy gold color. This was another color I was iffy on but, I love colors like this for detail in nail art because they're so shimmery. I'm not too fond of how streaky this is and as a full manicure, my least favorite out of the 6 and... I wanted it off as fast as possible haha. It took 3 coats to kill the nail line and this one was a little thinner than the others. Still pretty though! Just not my cup of tea ;]

Like I said in the previous post, I'm superrrrrrr happy to see the Megalast line expanding to more than pinks, reds, nudes and purples and going for something a little more special. I love the price, formula and wear of these polishes!

I found these polishes at Walgreen's on sale for $1.59, from the usual $1.99. I searched FOUR stores before finding these! It seems they're not consistently stocked. I've also heard that they are at Rite Aid but, I went to 3 stores and never found them haha. Come on Charleston, get with it!
 
 Have an awesome Friday night!
