Being the beauty snob that I’ve become, I was happily surprised to find a nail polish that cost me less than $2 bucks and that worked so well. Wet N Wild nail polish has made me a true believer in the spending power of the almighty dollar (or two in this case). Take that Susie Orman! I found this perfectly pretty polish in my local Walgreens. It was the color that caught my eye … a sultry soft pink with a touch of shimmer and glitter called Heavenly. I tucked it away in my home nail care bin and frankly, forgot about it. But in a rush to an event yesterday, I performed an emergency home pedi operation and finally pulled out the Wet N Wild polish figuring it just had to last the night or until I could get to my local nail joint. The polish is a bit on the thin side but when you’re painting your own nails, this helps you to make quick fixes. I applied two coats, which dried in record time and resulted in a pale, shimmery hue. Very pretty. The trick with inexpensive nail polishes is to start with a quality base polish that protects and hydrates your nails and finish with a good top coat that extends the wear. Or, skip the top coat and apply a fresh coat of color every couple of days or when it chips. This morning, after inspecting my handiwork, I’ve decided to skip the professional pedicure and go on a hike with the Spa Boy instead. That’s $30 saved! Okay, Susie, I’ve cut back on my cosmetics consumption, now what? And no, I refuse to wear the same earrings every day (Did you ever notice she always sports those same gold earrings? Hmmm!). Wet N Wild Crystalic polishes are available at most Walgreens for $1.99 or find a location near you that sells them at wnwbeauty.com. By the way animal lovers, Wet N Wild is made by Markwins International, a cosmetics manufacturer that does not test its products on animals. More at CaringConsumer.com.
