Wet n Wild New Megalast Shades!

Above & Below: My personal favorite, Under Your Spell. This is a deep, rich, jewel-toned shade of Black Cherry, with lighter shimmer and a charcoal base. The light reflects off of it in such a way that the edges look darker, framing the color and depth in the center.
Below: Blackmail is a very deep charcoal creme with multi-colored glitter in dark pink, turquoise and coppery gold.
Below: Haze of Love is a muted, yet highly pigmented shade of Persimmon. All of the polishes below are cremes. I should mention that I used 2 coats on all of these shades pictured.
Below: Tropicalia is a Watermelon creme that although not evident in the photo, has a hint of coral, which adds more vibrancy than what you're seeing here, for a somewhat neon effect.
Below: Club Havana is a pastel orange creme. It's not bright, and it's not coral, but rather, a mid-tone range of orange, with a touch of pastel for a softer look.
Continuing my swatching of Wet n Wild's new display offerings, today I have some of the shades I picked up from the Megalast line. If you scroll down to the post below this one, you can see swatches of several of the new shades from their Wild Shine line. The Megalast polishes were priced at $1.89, vs. 97¢ for the Wild Shine polishes. This line is also packaged in a smaller bottle, .30 fl. oz., vs. .043 fl. oz. for the Wild Shines. If I had to choose one line over the other, based on the shades I tried, I'd likely pick the Wild Shines. They're less expensive, especially considering the size, but more importantly, the formula seems to flow a bit better and the brushes and handles are just more comfortable to use. The brushes in the Megalast line were hit or miss. They are not all cut identically, which made the application a little tricky, and a smaller bottle means a shorter brush and handle. Don't let the mention of that discourage you, because they're not that bad, but I did want to point it out. The shades are nice, including some unique ones, and the finishes are varied, giving you a wide selection to choose from.
