I rarely get manicures because if I got them regularly, I’d have less money to spend on other things and I’d never get through my nail polish collection. I stick to drugstore nail polishes for the most part, as I can’t justify spending almost $20 on a fancy nail lacquer. Especially when for $1.991, WetnWild MegaLast nail polish gets me a no chip DIY manicure.
Yes, you read that right. No chip.
That picture above? That’s my manicure taken one week after I painted my nails. One week where I cooked dinner, did my dishes, tidied up my apartment, etc etc. So, a typical week where my hands were pretty active and there were plenty of opportunities for chipping to occur. It’s not like I sat still and didn’t allow my fingers to get dirty! (And I’m going to end this paragraph here…)
Did I mention that the WetnWild MegaLast nail polish line sells for $1.99? And if you are coupon savvy at CVS or other locations that carry the brand, you can often get it for cheaper?
I’m wearing Tropicalia in the picture above, and you can see where my nails have grown in the week (and my cuticles are a sight to behold, sorry) since I applied it but there clearly are no chips. It’s worth mentioning that I’ve had the same no chip DIY manicure experience with all four WetnWild MegaLast nail polishes that I own, actually. I wear two coats of WetnWild MegaLast nail polish sandwiched between Revlon’s base coat and top coat, which I do for all my manicures.
I still can’t believe I can get such a long lasting manicure in my own home for the low price of $2.99. The only polish I own that’s come close to it in longevity is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, which I also love, but at $8-9 that’s more than double the price! There are some great colors in the WetnWild MegaLast nail polish line I’d love to add to my collection, and at $1.99 it’s a hard price to pass up.
- WetnWild MegaLast Nail Polish is usually $2-3, depending which drugstore you buy it at. I recommend being savvy with coupons and discounts at major drugstores like CVS or Walgreens to find the best deal. [↩]
