Prepare yourself for another post in our Feeling Pretty series....

If you have been following our blog for a while, then you already know that we LOVE the Wet n Wild MegaLast Nail Polishes. We obsessed over the deep and mesmerizing shades in the Pick Your Poison collection and we raved about the fun and sparkly shades in the Be a Runway Beauty collection! But, we haven't actually shown you the permanent polishes in the line...until now!! Get ready to be blown away by gorgeous color and impressive quality that is ALWAYS available at your local Wet n Wild retailers!!

Okay, if you're anything like us, then you are probably squealing with joy just LOOKING at these pretty pictures! But, remain calm, because we still have a lot to cover in this post! Stay with me!!

Before we jump into color descriptions, let's talk about the packaging, formula, and overall quality of these polishes. Basically, they come in classy square-ish bottles that say "wet n wild" down the sides, "wet n wild megalast salon nail color" on the front, and the shade name on the back. They also come with black caps that have WIDE brushes! The bottles look chic enough, and the wide brushes make the application a breeze! We LOVE the brushes! The actual nail polish in most of them is creamy (but some have shimmer), and they need about two coats to look opaque and even--which is pretty typical of a nail polish. The dry time is pretty average, as well. The lasting power might be just a titch better in these than your average nail polish, though, which is great! And the pigmentation is FABULOUS! We really appreciate that these have so much vividness, and come in a variety of stunning shades! We absolutely adore this line of nail polishes--it is one of our favorite lines because the quality is phenomenal, and the price is fantastic, at just $1.99 per polish at Walgreen's!

"Break the Ice" is a pretty white loaded with fine shimmer! It is absolutely stunning, and has a snow-princess-like quality (yes, that's a thing)! The "icy" name fits is perfectly!

"2% Milk" is a very light, fleshy color with a hint of a pink undertone and a cream finish. For those of us with fair skin, this makes a fantastic nude! Oh, so classy!

"Private Viewing" is a slightly deeper nude shade with a peach undertone and cream finish. I imagine this would be a great nude for those with tanner skin tones. 

"Wet Cement" is a very pretty, creamy taupe! What a beautiful, cool brown shade! (This is slightly darker in person than in picture--sorry about the slightly off-lighting in this one!)

"Candy-licious" is a medium shade of pink with a bright, candy-like tone and cream finish! It is such a fun, pretty pink and we LOVE it! The name suits it so well, too.

"Tropicala" is a fun, creamy coral! It is a little brighter than "Candy-licious" and has a definite orange undertone, but it still has more pink than orange in it. This is such a tropical, warm color! It is another polish with a fitting name! (This is brighter in person.)

"Heatwave" is pretty much an oranger (I know that's not a word, but you know what I mean, so just roll with it) version of "Tropicala." It is another bright, warm shade of coral, but it has a lot more orange in it!

"I Red a Good Book" is a pretty shade of red that has a strong orange undertone, and is on the lighter side of red. It also has a cream finish. Very classy!

"I Need a Refresh-Mint" a pretty, creamy, light shade of blue. Unfortunately, despite the name, it is NOT a lovely shade of mint green. It is almost more of a cotton candy blue! I could go on and on about how much the unfitting name bugs me, but it is a cute enough color that I'll shut up about that and let you enjoy the pretty picture peacefully. 

"On a Trip" is a very cool, light to medium shade of purple. This lovely violet also has a cream finish. 

"Disturbia" is a very dark, shimmering purple. It is simply GORGEOUS! 

"Through the Grapevine" is a bright and beautiful magenta hue. It is this warm, pink-ish purplish color with a cream finish!

As you can see, there are loads of pretty shades in this line (and we do NOT have them all)! While it's hard to pick only a few favorites, if we had to do so, we might pick "Candy-licious" and "Disturbia." What are a few of YOUR favorites?! Let us know in the comment section below!
