Wet ‘n’ Wild Grew Up in Cobalt-imore Nail Lacquer
This Cobalt Stopped Me in My Tracks!
Wet ‘n’ Wild Grew Up in Cobalt-imore Nail Lacquer ($3.99 for 0.29 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark navy blue with a mega-sized dose of shimmer in light blue, blue, and silver. The only color that really came to mind was Zoya Twila, which is really quite different–it has horizontal bar glitter, so they don’t really look alike, but they had a similar depth of blue.
After applying the polish to just one nail, I was blown away. The richness of the hue was incredible, and I only needed one coat for completely opaque color–the swatches show one coat. It dries down quickly (faster than the average polish, probably because of the metallic finish), and it did dry to a shiny finish. I wore this polish for wear, since I’ve never tried this particular formula, and it lasted a full week without chipping on me with average tip wear. I will, of course, remind you that not much does chip on me. The formula was a real beauty; not thick but not thin, and it applied like a dream with so much color and even color at that.
Also worth mentioning is that this is a rather small bottle of polish as far as compared to most–it’s only 0.29 fl. oz. compared to 0.50 fl. oz. Though, high-end polishes tend to fall between 0.34 and 0.50, it is pricey compared to the rest of the brand’s range ($1.99 for 0.50 fl. oz. is usually what you expect and see).
