Wet n Wild Root of All Evil vs. Sinful Colors Midnight Blue


Today I have a requested post.  On my recent post about the Wet 'n Wild Pick Your Poison collection, a lovely reader asked me if I would show Root of All Evil and compare with Sinful Colors Midnight Blue.

I used Bridge the Ridge for the base coat, 2 coats of each polish, and no topcoat for my pictures.
Can you tell which one is which?  No? I'll tell you in a little bit...
Bottle shot:

I haven't yet mastered holding all my fingers at the exact same angle, but the index and middle fingers are angled the same way

Neither picture has been color corrected.  Both polishes are beautiful, richly saturated royal blues with tiny shimmers that make them both look glowy under lamp light.  I didn't really notice a difference between formula...Wet 'n Wild went on quicker, but that's because it has the "manicurve" brush - 2 swipes and I was done.  Sinful Colors took a few more strokes.  Swatched on nail wheels, they looked a little bit different, but on the nails, I would say identical.  They both left me with a little blue tinge to my cuticles, but nothing some Bath & Body Works Deep Cleansing Soap couldn't take care of.

Wet 'n Wild Root of All Evil is limited edition and retails for $1.99 - only 3 per display.  Sinful Colors Midnight Blue is a core color and retails for $1.99 at Rite Aid and Walgreens (maybe Target, too?) & goes on sale occasionally at Walgreens for $.99.

Do you need both polishes?  No.  In my opinion they are dupes for each other.  If you like wider brushes, go with the Wet 'n Wild.  If you like the more traditional thinner brush, get the Sinful Colors.

Do you prefer the "Manicurve" brushes that Wet 'n Wild is now using or the traditional like Sinful Colors?
