Wet N Wild Wild Shine Nail Polish in Caribbean Frost Review and Swatches

This is one of the first polishes I bought this summer, and one I wore on my toes a couple months ago.  Finally getting around to reviewing it, whee!  It's a lovely green-leaning turquoise with shimmer, very summery.

The formula is really nice: smooth and with perfect viscosity (not watery, not thick and gloppy).  It takes only 2 coats to get opaque coverage, and with base and top coats, it lasted me 2 weeks on my toes with minimal tip wear and no chipping.  It looks greener on me than it does in the bottle, but it's still really lovely.

When I was playing around swatching, I tried topping it with one of the Sinful polishes I got, Hottie, a sparkly blue (review to come).  It looks very pretty, and I'll give it a try the next time I'm in the mood for teal!
