NOTD: Massini Volcanic & a New WnW Collection!

Above: Massini Volcanic, indoors with flash.
Below: A new offering from Wet n Wild, the Craze Collection. I love the bottles and the design on the cap. And look at the 2nd polish on the left...and the green, oooh, and the brown!
I've been playing around with 4th of July manicures this morning so my nails look quite the mess, sporting various ideas on different nails. I've been enjoying everyone's 4th of July nails on MUA and the blogs I follow and I wanted to share one I saw this morning that really caught my eye. Grace has a great blog at 'The Kitchen, the Closet & the Laboratory' and she's a Michigan State fan, so she must be a wonderful person! Check out her blog and her July 4 mani...I think it caught my eye so much because although she didn't use any red in it, it's still very festive and pretty.

Today I'll show you another Massini polish I have, which is one of my favorites during the Summer months. It's a neon, but it also has gold shimmer in it. It's much brighter in real life than I could capture with these pictures. It covered perfectly in 2 coats and I almost could have gotten away with one. It dries to a satin finish (the flash makes it shinier than it really is) rather than flat as most neons do, so I'm guessing that has something to do with the shimmer factor. I'm no scientist, but I do know I love the color, a bright pink, but not quite fuchsia.

You know I've shared my love for Wet n Wild Chrome polishes with you several times, having slowly acquired 3 of them (I think there's 7 in the collection) but never locating the entire display...well, I was on Wet n Wild's website looking for other stores that carry the line so I could make a mental note when I'm out to stop in some of these places so I might be able to complete that collection, and look what I found...the Craze Collection. That's the only information I've found on it, but the colors look great and you can be sure I'll be looking for them. Let's hope they don't prove to be as elusive as the Chromes have.


  1. I am really liking those Massini polishes you've been showing us!

    Those Wet n Wilds look awesome, gonna have to keep an eye out for them.

  2. Imagine my surprise when I was reading your blog and I saw my name! Thanks for mentioning me! For all the years I lived in Michigan, I don't even remember seeing the Massini polishes. I really miss Meijers though. Have a great 4th of July weekend!

  3. ooooo new Wet and Wilds..... I'll be keeping a look out for them..... Thanks for the info.

  4. Those polishes are a delight to look at. Very pretty on you Mary. Those new WNW look amazing. Sort of reminded me of a Chanel polish, the bottle that is. My girlfriend was in Walgreens and the girl behind the counter remembered her as the girl who bought all the polishes. She showed her all the Sally Hansen Xtremes that just came in! Woo Hoo, I now owe my girlfriend a lot of money! She bought me 15 bottles of polish. There were 5 Sinful Colors in there also. She just happened to come at the perfect time.

  5. Kae~happy you like them, they're fun polishes. I hope the Wet n Wilds make it to my town...some day!
