Popular singer Fergie teamed up with Wet N Wild Beauty to launch 24 nail polish colors inspired by her music and funky sense of style. In comparison to the permanent line of Wet n Wild nail polishes, the bigger Fergie bottles hold relatively the same amount of polish, are more expensive, and have a thicker, wider brush. My lovely boyfriend gave me these five shades for Christmas, and I've finally had the chance to test them all out and share my review.
Hollywood Walk of Fame is a thick clear polish with shiny star glitters suspended throughout.
Dutchess is a semi-opaque clear polish with a mixture of medium blue glitters and bigger purple glitters.
Glamorous is a clear polish with hexagonal gold glitters mixed with tiny ones.
Miami Spirit is a flat teal green with a frosted finish.
Fergalicious is a vibrant orange based pink with a frosted finish.
Although the appearance of each polish differs, they all had a very similar formula. I found the texture to be heavy, 'goopy', and difficult to evenly apply. The brush is abnormally wide and didn't efficiently apply the polish neatly or without some fussing. None of the shades were completely opaque even with three coats. The finish of each was frosty and dull, but a shiny top coat instantly brought them to life. The wear wasn't excellent either as I saw some chipping and flaking in about four days continuing to worsen each day thereafter.
These polishes are available at participating drugstores. I know they've been spotted at Family Dollar, Walgreens and Rite Aid and also on Drugstore.com. They also may be purchased on the Wet N Wild website.
Although both the formula and finish are lacking, I still would not deem this line as the worst nail colors out there. The three glitters I tried are unique to my collection and were fun to mix and match on top of different shades. As for the other two, the frosted finish and lack of opacity is disappointing even with a clear topcoat to add some shine. Other Wet n Wild nail polishes I have tried were all great, so I'm not exactly sure what didn't translate to this collection.
Have you tried any of the Fergie nail colors?
