Wet n' Wild Fast Dry Nail Polish: Review & Swatches

Wet n' Wild has a new line of polishes out called Fast Dry, well new since around last Fall. I got the opportunity to test a bunch of them out. I tried swatching on nail wheels for the first time, since there were so many of them and this was a few weeks ago when my nails were still pretty traumatized, so please forgive me this.

I really enjoyed these polishes, more than I expected because I've never tried these and I wasn't especially ecstatic about the shades. And the names of the polishes are really, really dorky. However, they are all of great quality and dry relatively quickly, I wouldn't necessarily call them "fast" compared to other polishes out there but they weren't slow by any means. *shrug* The shimmers were really lovely, and who doesn't adore holo glitter?



I like these polishes because they are "normal" colors but Wet n' Wild uses interesting finishes, not just all cremes, not all shimmers, not all glitters, etc. There are a little bit of everything, hence, something for everyone.

I find it hard to get past how awful the names of these are, and the bottle design (slightly triangle and round?!) baffles me, but honestly the fine quality, the price, and availability definitely make up for their shortcomings. You can find these in most drugstores for about $1.99 each.

  1. I think the names are cute! :) Buffy the Violet Slayer is my fave. I also own several of these polishes in the limited edition Craze form. I wish I had more of those.

  3. I like many of the colors and the price is fantastic ... I would buy more if the bottles weren't so ugly.

  12. I have all of these and love them. The crap names don't bother me since these are so pretty. Glad your nails are back. Maybe you can re-swatch these now that your nails are better.

  18. The colors look so pretty all splayed out on your wheel in the great light. This brand seems not to last on me. I don't think the names are that lame. Everyone will always try to copy what OPI started in the name game.

  20. I was pleasantly surprised by the brushes on these polishes. I really like their limited edition collections, especially the Mermaid's Cove collection.

  21. I really like the bottle shape but I HATE the brush handle..I can never get the thing open because it is so awkward to grasp. The weird ridges are also I dunno..kind of tacky looking?

  22. I think the names are adorable. My favorite name is 9.0.2.1.Orange. Walgreens is now selling them, buy 2 get 1 free! I got the Silvivor and the Greys Anatomy and another that is not one of the fast dry. Agreed the bottle shape is, um, unique.
