I’m just going to say it: these Wet n Wild megalast polishes are crap. I tried to be patient with the first bottle, but this On A Trip/En Voyage purple was beyond the pits. I put 3 coats down, hoping that it would settle out like the previous one (sort of) did, but it just wasn’t happening. The brush is thick and ridiculously shaped (if you were painting bear claws it’d be ok, but I’d like something a little more wieldy please) and the formula… awful and untrustworthy. Which is a shame, because I do like the color, but just look what it was doing: these pics have topcoat on the index and pinky, the ring and middle are just the 3 coats of polish –
So that’s gross. I had to finish it up with something/didn’t have the time to start all over, so went in with a Migi pen in orange to add a border — wayyyy easier with the pens to do the picture framing — then added a nice thick coat of SV to help even things out a little more. Ultimately I think these polishes are only something you can work with if you’ve got endless patience, and I don’t know when or if I’ll get zen enough to try tackling that third bottle I bought, because that’s setting yourself up for buffing, filing, lots of thin layers… I don’t love this color THAT much. I guess that’s the big lesson here: if you don’t know/trust the formula, buy ONE bottle first to make sure you actually like it!
