Wet ‘n’ Wild Teal or No Teal Fast Dry Nail Lacquer

Wet ‘n’ Wild Teal or No Teal Fast Dry Nail Lacquer ($1.99 for 0.46 fl. oz.) is a silver shimmered blue-teal. The formula was on the thinner side and seemed a touch watery, which was emphasized after three coats and still having some visible nail line. It is similar to Orly Bailamos, which is a touch tealer and more opaque. Butter London Artful Dodger is also similar in color, but it is bluer and doesn’t have any shimmer.

It’s supposed to dry in sixty seconds, but I find each coat takes about two to three minutes to dry down–which is significantly longer (two to three times) what Wet ‘n’ Wild claimed. For the average polish, the drying time is not a concern, but it is an issue when it is part of the product’s claims. The actual wear was good, though; I had no problem getting a week of wear (with minor tip wear) with proper base and top coats (I used Zoya’s).

I’m surprised to read this! This color has been my go to color all summer because I love the mermaid blue look to it. My experience has been completely different. I can get away with two coats (one if using a shatter) and never had problems with it not being opaque or too thin. Totally agree with the drying time!!

I have this one…can’t remember why I bought it because i’m definitely a glitter or creme finish type of girl. But I use Seche Vite for all my polishes so I don’t even bother with dry times polishes claim.

I totally agree with you on the drying time. I do love this line of polishes though. I have the Wonder Yellows and Sage and the City, they are absolutely fantastic. Up until this year I never had a good opinion about Wet n Wild but they have really came out with some quality products and I’m really happy with this brand now.

The colors of all the Fast Dry polishes I’ve tried do not look nearly as pretty on the nails as they do in the bottle. The only one true to the bottle is the black shade. Also, the Fast Dry polishes are just the WnW Craze polishes repackaged. I didn’t realize that until I bought couple and took them home and realized I already had the exact same polishes in the Craze bottles. Teal or No Teal being one I bought again. Same colors, same names and the Craze polishes didn’t have the fast dry claim. I would hope they would have attempted to change the formula to make it dry faster (I’ve never compared the ones I have to each other), and didn’t just stick them in new bottles.

Plus – and this is weird I know – I hate the names of these WnW polishes. I find the TV show puns to be silly.

I don’t have this one, but I picked up a few at Rite Aid. They’re definitely good for the price and I’m a sucker for the names. I’m not really a fan of the brush though because it’s kind of rounded on one end and I end up painting my skin instead. They probably did that to make it easier, but I’m just so used to the OPI brushes.

well the colors are very pretty ad i happen to own this one and she’s right it comes out way too light by itself.But if you put another color under it (I used sinful colors rise and shine ) It looks really pretty.This works with almost any greenish blue or bluesh green (and yes theres a difference)
