Ocean Grotto - or is it Twining Vines?

Today, I have a polish from Wet 'n Wild to share.  It may look a little familiar as I got the original bottle, Ocean Grotto, last year from the Mermaid's Cove collection.  This year, it was re-released under the name Twining Vines contained in the Flora 4-piece kit.

I quickly threw this on so there is no base coat and no topcoat.

Ocean Grotto 33599 (a.k.a. Twining Vines 33599)
This is 2 coats and it is still sheer and a little patchy (if you look close).  Click here if you want to see it more opaque using 4 or 5 coats (just scroll down).  It's a pretty shimmery golden-green sheer polish.  It does dry quickly--it should since it is in the Fast Dry line--but slightly rough.

Since I didn't use a base coat, when I went to take it off I had little golden shimmers stuck in some of the spots where my nails have peeled so I would highly advise a base of some sort.

I've seen the Flora kits still available at both Walgreens and Rite Aid.  Also, according to ecpono on YouTube, the Mermaid's Cove collection has been re-released (click here for her video) and will retail for $1.99.  If you want to see what I got from the Mermaid's Cove collection last year, check out this post.

Have you ever gotten an identical polish under a different name?
