Spotted: Wet 'n Wild Pick Your Poison Collection & Haul!

**all items purchased by me

It's been kind of damp and chilly where I live, reminding me of early fall.  So today seems like a good day to do the next pre-Halloween display post.  Today's brand is Wet 'n Wild!  I did not seen anything about this collection anywhere online before I found it on August 17 so it was a very pleasant surprise find.
In a different twist for WnW, the holiday display is not packed with the usual Fast Dry's the MegaLast line.  It's a collection of 6 polishes, all of which are new colors as far as I can know.  I don't have many from the Spoiled line so... if something looks familiar, please let me know.

Now, of course I had to buy them all since I'm such a huge Wet 'n Wild fan.

Bottle shots!
Poison Ivy, Root of All Evil, Lethal Injection:

Toxic Apple, Deadly Dose, Venomous Vixen:

 Venomous Vixen, Deadly Dose, Lethal Injection, Root of All Evil, Poison Ivy, Toxic Apple
-Venomous Vixen has 3 coats, the rest 2-

I've swatched these all on my nail wheel and held them up to other wheels from Wet 'n Wild and found no exact dupes in all the WnW polishes I have. I expanded my search to all the brands I have and the could find only 2 "dupes": 
  • Lethal Injection, I would say that Essie Damsel in a Dress is pretty much dead on (both required 2 coats on the nail wheels)
  • Root of All Evil (2 coats that went on more smoothly) is extremely close to Sinful Colors Midnight Blue (3 coats) (the shimmer is a tiny touch more prominent on Midnight Blue).  Check out my comparison of these 2 here.

A couple of notes:
  • Toxic Apple has a dark blue/burple base to it that looks black in some lights.  
  • Poison Ivy is heavily blackened on the first coat, looking more charcoal.
  • All of them have a super-fine shimmer, with Deadly Dose looking the most brush-strokey (but I did get a wonky brush with that one)

These are priced at $1.99.  I found them at the grocery store (if you're curious which one, it's Giant Eagle), so I'm not sure what other stores these will be landing at, or when.  I do suggest checking the brushes as one I got has a bit of a wonky twisted brush.

Will you be snatching these up if you see them?

  1. I saw these and poison ivy caught my attention the most! Can you do a swatch of root of all evil vs midnight blue? I really wanted them but the grocery store I was at doesn't take cosmetic returns if you happen to not like it. Like walgreens does. I only have 3 wnw polishes and have only tried one since they have horrible brushes. Very hard to work with!

    1. Thanks for checking out my post! I'd be happy to do comparison pictures for you! I'll get it up soon. :)

  2. Thanks for the swatches! I've been thinking of getting these, but wanted to see them beforehand. Root of all evil is gorgeous!

    1. Thanks for checking out my post! So happy I was able to provide the needed swatches! Root of Evil will be featured in it's own post so check back for better pictures of it!
