OVERALL THOUGHTS
Wet N Wild revamped the already popular MegaLast Nail Colors in formula, bottle and performance. There's more product and the brush is thicker for easier coating. Although this might be a problem for those who naturally have smaller nails and the brush overlapping easily onto the skin. As for the formula claiming to be chip-resistant up to 5-days, I can say overall my manis last a good 4 days without chipping and with the constant washing of my hands so that's a plus. I never really had problems with the megalast not lasting less than a few days so that's saying a lot for a drugstore brand. Also they are pretty opaque after a few coats which is a major plus and minimal streaking in most of the polishes.

I like the shades overall, I had already owned a few previously of the same name. When it came to drugstore polishes, I always went for WNW or Sinful because they're easy to experiment different colors without breaking the bank, their accessibility, variety and they last a good amount of time without or with very minimal chipping.

Again, the only con I can find is the brush - as I know some folks aren't a fan of it's thickness or it being wide.

RECOMMENDATIONS
The new polishes are a great addition and it's hard to narrow it down to three but if I had too:

On A Trip
I Need a Refresh-Mint

  13. I was absolutely blown away by these nail polishes! I usually just buy essie/zoya/borghese/opi/china glaze, all the hyped up salon brands. China glaze and borghese usually last like 2 days on me if I'm lucky but essie and opi barely last 1 day. I always kind of just assumed that's what nail polish did, I mean if you're spending 15$ a bottle you would think it would be the best. I bought two bottles of these last week and day 6, no chipping. None, nothing barely even wear off the tips of my fingertips which always happens. Never in my life has nail polish lasted more than 3 days. What is in this stuff! haha Absolutely amazing, and unfortunately now I feel inclined to go to the store and buy every single colour.
