This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Polish 7 Day Review

One of the things I wanted for Christmas was some good gel polish to use at home. And being the frugal Shopper that I am, the first thing I did was look for coupons online. Unfortunately I couldn't find any, so I looked at reviews of affordable drugstore gel polish to decide which one I should try. The Sally Hansen gel polish actually had poor reviews, and users are not happy with the durability. The next brand I looked up was this one, Wet n Wild. It had good reviews, and users said that it lasted several days with no chips. So I went to the store and looked at it, and I was happy to see that the price was less than $5 for a bottle, and there were several colors to choose from. It says that you don't need a base coat or topcoat, so that's what I did for my first application to try it out. If it goes well, I will definitely be getting more colors!

Day 1
No base coat, no top coat. 2 coats of polish

Day 2
After washing dishes, taking a shower, and normal activities

Day 3
After washing dishes and cleaning. No chips persay, just a bit of wear along some edges. Still amazing for no topcoat! 

Day 4
After a shower and scrubbing dishes. A couple small chips along the edges. A bit more wear. Still in decent shape, but I think I'll touch up the edges to freshen up and stretch out my wear a little longer.

Day 5
Even after a touch up on the tips, I still had wearing on the edges at the end of the day after chores and lots of cooking.

Day 6
Several more chips on my dominant hand.

Day 7
So definitely lots more wear and chips, mainly on my right hand.

My opinion after 1 week with this new polish is that overall I like it. Sure it got some chips after a few days, but they were only on a couple nails that got the most use. And I did not have to use a base or top coat so that saved me a lot of time waiting for it to dry. I like the wide bristle brush, and I like the opaque coverage of the color. I actually bought another color of it, and I'll be using it next week! 

I recommend getting this polish--it's less than $5 and no top coat needed so less down time. Try it out!
