Wet Paint Nails Nail Glaze System {Swatches + Review}

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Wet Paint Nails to try out their completely awesome and revolutionary Nail Glaze System, which basically allows you to create your own nail colors using their 3-step method {Base, Top Coat Glaze, and SPFX Coat}.

I was provided with 9 shades {4 base colors, 3 top coat glazes, and 2 SPFX coats}. Here are the combinations I created using the provided shades {see my complete review of the system after the swatches}.

Counterclockwise from Top Left:
1 Coat of Call the Chauffeur {Base} + 1 Coat of Willful Top Coat Glaze + 3 Coats of Caramel Breeze {SPFX}


Counterclockwise from Top Left:
1 Coat of Always Buy Platinum {Base} + 1 Coat of Wicked Top Coat Glaze + 3 Coats of Caramel Breeze {SPFX}


Clockwise from Top Right:
1 Coat of Shock & Aqua {Base} + 1 Coat of Lust Top Coat Glaze + 3 Coats of Moonstone {SPFX}


Clockwise from Top Right:
1 Coat of Crimson & Clover {Base} + 2 Coats of Willful Top Coat Glaze + 3 Coats of Moonstone {SPFX}


PROS:
    • The Base Colors are super smooth and easy to work with. On all 4 that I tried, they were opaque in one coat.
    • You can try all color combos on virtually using the Wet Paint Nails Try It On App before actually applying the colors to your nails - so you know what type of results you will wind up with.
    • The Caramel Breeze SPFX is literally one of the coolest things ever - the holographic edge it adds to just about any polish color is A-MA-ZING.


CONS:
    • I had severe bubbling issues with the Moonstone SPFX. Within 30 minutes of applying it, the polish would completely bubble up, making the manicure look unattractive.
    • I found that, once applied, the Moonstone SPFX made any nail color combination look seemingly identical and /or fairly similar. I didn't encounter this with the Caramel Breeze SPFX.
    • One coat of the SPFX did not make a huge difference on the nail; to really see an interesting effect, you had to apply 2 or 3 coats, which can be tedious work.
    • On me, I felt that the Moonstone SPFX never completely dried. It would dent mid-day, and just felt too thick on my nail.


FINAL THOUGHTS:
I love the concept of this system {especially in the first combination shown here}; however, I found it a bit time-consuming, what with all of the different layers. If you're someone who wants a fast and fab mani, I wouldn't really recommend this to you; but if you're a polish connoisseur who loves having something totally unique on your nails, you will love this. I do highly recommend the Wet Paint Nails Base Coats, as they are fantastically consistent in all of their one-coat glory - and come in so many gorgeous shades.

Glad to read this. It does sound like a cool product. Just not sure I have time for that much nail polish. But I really love the end result from your photos!

Wet paint nails looks like a very unique way of getting that "wet" look. Love the colors.

This is a great idea and I love the glossy finish of the nails :) It's a sham 'Moonstone' wasn't that great!

I want that Carmel Breeze SPX. I think I would love this.

I agree. If someone is really into painting their nails then this would be quite fun. But for me, I want my polish to be quick and easy. Thanks for such an awesome review!

I like to do my nails quickly so I'm not sure this would work for me, even if it does look awesome.

Sara Gerard said...

Good honest review! I like the idea of creating your own look, but I am one for a quick deal, not something tedious.

Fun idea! I think I'd do just fine with the base coats.

Rebecca said...
