AMW Reviews: Wet n Wild Megalast Salon Nail Color

Another week is here and I can't believe its mid-October already!  I know I've been complaining how long my morning sickness has been but come to think of it, time flew by pretty quickly still (to most of you..lol) and I am excited for Christmas! :)

Now, I haven't been sporting any polish shade on both my toes and fingers but that doesn't mean I've stopped myself at staring at the gorgeous colors different brands have to offer!

Recently, I got my first Wet n Wild Megalast Salon Nail Color as a gift because I was told this is perfect for me as the polish doesn't have the BIG 3 we're scared of!  Because I've been suffering from morning sickness and my pregnancy hormones gave me the dog's sense of smell, I can't seem to stay long inside a room with a polish scent so I asked my dearest sister to test this polish for me!  Well, right after I played with the polish myself using fake nails! 


The gorgeous shade I got is called Through the Grapevine (208B)

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Nice simple bottle.
  • Brush!  The wide brush head makes it easier to apply even for first-time polish wearers.
  • Free of Toluene, Phthalate and Formaldehyde! 
  • Good pigmentation even at 1 coat.
  • Has a good shine even prior to top coat application.
  • According to my sister, this lasted her 3.5 days even with heavy housework! (without base and topcoat)
  • Price!
Cons
  • The scent.  The strong, regular nail polish scent is still there.  
Overall
Lovely pigmentation.  Consistency is creamy and good.  The polish lasts for at least 3 days and could go longer with a good base and top coat.

Tips
  • Store all your polishes in cool, dry place.
  • To keep your nails healthy, use a good base coat and top coat prior to any nail polish application.
  • Polish application should be done in a room without electric fan.
  • Do not wash your hands at least 30 minutes before polish application to prevent bubbles from forming.
  • Do the "wrapping method" to make your polish last longer.
  • Smile and click HERE to read my previous post on how to apply polish correctly.
Will I repurchase?
YES!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Nail polish wearers who would want to protect their nails and skin from harmful chemicals!  I was told this can even be used by preggies!

Where to purchase and how much?
Priced locally Php199.00 (approx $4.74). Available at SM Department Store Makati, Megamall, North Edsa , Cubao, Fairview, Manila, San Lazaro, Las Pinas.  Watsons Personal Care Store Megamall and Mall of Asia.

Pro brush that's flat and wide, with practice, 
you can get to apply your polish without a mess!

 Through the Grapevine 
(Left - 1 coat, middle and right - 2 coats)
A lovely fuchsia shade that has a hint of plum. 
 This shade would work well on all ages and would look good on any skin tone!
As seen on swatch below, this would do good even with just 1 coat.

Ahhh, I can totally see how great the color looks on me!
Through the Grapevine --- soon, I'll get to use you! :P

Do you use nail polishes even if they have the BIG 3?
Would you give Wet n Wild Megalast Salon Nail Color a try?
