I still love to look at all the new drugstore makeup displays. Last weekend, I was in Walgreens and saw a really big Fantasy Makers Halloween display...it had apparently just been put out, because I made the first purchase from it. It was stocked with the trademark Fantasy Makers false eyelashes, eyeshadow palettes, and everything else, including nail polish. I picked up a couple of the Wet n Wild Megalast polishes. I believe the Halloween polishes are re-releases, but I didn't have any of them. And they were only $1.99, you know?
First up I have Poison Ivy, a metallic green shimmer.
Poison Ivy is a deep, slightly blackened hunter green. Strangely enough, I don't have another green this color in my collection.
I applied two coats of Poison Ivy for the photos. The Megalast brush is called a "Manicurve Pro Brush", which means a wide, paddle style. That is always problematic for me since I have such tiny nails, so I had to be really careful. I experienced a bit of dragging, but of course, it looks worse here than in real life. :)
Poison Ivy is a great green, both for Halloween and for autumn. The photos show a warmer side to the color, but in real life, it leans a touch more blue.
I gave my sweet husband Brian the task of choosing my other Wet n Wild polish, and I think he did a great job. The name is great...Lethal Injection. Oh my.
The color of Lethal Injection reminds me of OPI Diva of Geneva, only Lethal Injection's shimmer is silver and not gold. Again, in real life, this color is a bit different...it's more oxblood than wine. Maybe Wet n Wild polishes like to keep you guessing? ;)
I experienced dragging again with my two coats, but it all looks fine in real life. My biggest problem was how much of a mess it made my cuticles! :/
Lethal Injection isn't an unusual color, but if you are in the mood for a deep, vampy shade for very little money, this will do nicely for you.
|Quoth the Raven, "Lethal Injection!" no...wait...|
Have you gotten any Halloween drugstore offerings this October? I always wish I had a place to wear all those great false eyelashes...*sigh*.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)
