Giveaway: Win Wet n Wild Waves of Enchantment

Wet n Wild Waves of Enchantment

Wet n Wild Mermaid's Cove

The Mermaid's Cove Collection from Wet n Wild has officially launched this month in stores with eight limited edition shades for summer, and one of the star attractions and an absolute bombshell of a color, Waves of Enchantment. If you're in love with shimmery fleck finishes (like me), make sure you grab this one fast before it's gone.

Waves of Enchantment ($1.99) is described as a carnation pink loaded with gorgeous gold fleck shimmer. The golden highlights really bring out the peachy-coral undertones in Waves of Enchantment! So beautiful in real life!

Quick Review: Since I haven't officially reviewed the formula, let's keep this short and sweet. Fast Dry claim: 60 minute drying time is actually around two full minutes. Still not bad. The staying power is STELLAR though! Four days and still no sign of wear or chips with a base and top coat. I'm not a huge fan of the specially designed ManiCurve brush - it's slightly tapered but definitely managable. And all for a retail price of $1.99/ea. Oh yes, count me in!

Dupes? Zoya Rica comes to mind, although, I think it's more of a peachy pink compared to Waves of Enchantment. Definitely close.

Giveaway Details: Since I loved this color so much, I picked up three additional bottles to give away to my lovely readers. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite Wet n Wild nail polish color - old or new. The giveway is open to everyone, and the winners will be announced next Wednesday (end of day) in this post. Only one entry per person. Good Luck!

The winners have been contacted! Stay tuned for the next exciting giveaway - it may include a bottle of Mad as a Hatter!

Black creme is my favorite. Gray's Anatomy is a close second. I love Buffy the Violet Slayer for the name.

Oh, I have a very, very, very old bottle of glittery topcoat from WnW that's my eternal fave. Nothing comes close to it! It's so old it doesn't have a name - just a number (and I can't even remember that right now). Sadly most of the WnW range isn't sold here (Sweden), or I'd be all over Buffy the Violet Slayer.

I don't own any of the new Wet n Wild polishes. The ones I have are from the late 90s! My favourite was this opalescent milky one that I wore a lot back then. It had a blue flash, and if you layered it over any other colour, it transformed it into something special.

It came in a cylindrical bottle and had a long white handle. I think it just had a random number as the name, and I can't remember it right now. But that was the first bottle I ever completely used up! (My best friend first bought it and then got me hooked.)

This color looks so so pretty! Would love the opportunity to try to win it! I thnk my fave WnW polish would have to be Morbid from the Crazed collection -to me it is a fab dupe for Chanel's Black Pearl! I love the touch of green, thought unless you look close, only you know is there!!! Very cool color!! Good Luck all! Fingers Crossed! Alli

All time favorite WnW polish ever is 416A, a dark grass green with gold shimmer. I think it's the first green polish I ever owned, back at a time I wasn't the huge fan of them like I am now, so I'm so glad I got it. It has great depth, for an older formula polish. When they were revamping their polishes back around '03-'04, I managed to pick up a backup.

The first one that came to mind is Morbid, but Waves of Enchantment is amazing! Once I try Waves of Enchantment I might have a new fav!

My favorite WNW nail polish is Nocturnal from the Craze core collection. It's the perfect dark nail color that looks black indoors, but once you're outdoors, it's a beautiful shade of blue! I love it <3 I use it so often, I bought a back-up bottle!

My other go-to WNW polish is Private Viewing, from the Megalast core collection. The perfect nude shade for when you want to look classy :)

rebecca said on May 18th, 2011 4:55 pm
Looking at swatches on the internet, I have to say I think my favorite is probably Waves of Enchantment.. Its just so pretty! And having had serious regrets about not buying Zoya Rica the last time I ordered from Zoya, I think that it will make a good substitute until the next time I am able to order :).. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find it anywhere at the moment!
Reply

Kara said on May 24th, 2011 11:01 am
Oh wow. That color is gorgeous. I don't have a specific favorite color. I'm just always partial to really bright, sparkly colors. I do a lot of blending with the sparkly colors.

Thanks for hosting this and good luck to everyone! I love WnW's 237c Grey's anatomy because it's a grey but if you look at it from different angle it's has green and purple, which is unique.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

Megan said, on Sep 8th, 2012 1:12 am regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

Shelly said, on Aug 19th, 2012 3:43 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Jill said, on Aug 8th, 2012 5:47 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Steph said, on Jul 3rd, 2012 4:14 pm regarding Wet n Wild Flash Dry Nail Colors
Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

prinzy said, on Jul 3rd, 2012 3:47 pm regarding Wet n Wild Flash Dry Nail Colors
I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on amazon.com.

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

Debra said, on May 26th, 2012 4:59 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
