Wet & Wild Sparked

This is another one of the Wet & Wild polishes that I managed to sneak into the trolley during the weekly shop one day last year. I find I can often lose track of time in the supermarket beauty aisles, wondering what treasures I can find. It’s a good thing we don’t have an Asda round here, from what I know of their nail polishes!

So, here we have Sparked. I bought this because it just looked so pretty in the bottle. See, harsh supermarket lighting does serve an occasional purpose! You all know I’m not a pink, glittery and fluffy girl but I like this one.

Considering it only cost about £2.00, this polish is excellent quality. It was totally opaque in two coats, which is something other budget brands can learn from. I even found the thickness of it more impressive than many of China Glaze’s latest glitter collection.

I took this to a get-together of my friends recently, where I had been asked to do a few manicures. I painted one of my friends’ nails with this polish and kept staring at her hands over dinner – this looked amazing as it kept catching the light and blinging away. It’s one of those polishes where if I saw someone wearing it, I would feel compelled to go and ask them what it was.

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that removal was a total pain. But that’s what you get with a glitter, so it shouldn’t be any great shocker.

It is pink and silver glitter particles packed in a pink toned jelly. One for the warmer toned of you to avoid perhaps, but for eyecatching sparkle and glitter on a budget, you defintely can’t g0 wrong here.

    Hi Helen,

    Just to say that I bought this in Tesco in the UK so you might be able to find it a bit more locally to you than America! Glad you like it!

    You’re so lucky to have these in the UK, I was just saying this morning how I like WnW polishes but they’re not distributed in France 🙁

    I think it is one of the nicest polishes I’ve seen you wear. It really really suits you.

    Hmmmm..not so wild about this. I guess I don’t care for sparkle polishes personally because they tend (for me) to become an assault on my senses after wearing them for a few days. Just bought a gorgeous new OPI and it is very shimmery/sparkly and I could only look at it for about 2 days then off it came (very arduously I might add!)

    Chocaddict – We don’t have anywhere near the range that our American friends have. More like 4 or 5 bottles in the local supermarket!

    Jenni – Thankyou! I was surprised at how much I liked it.

    Beth – I’m curious as to which OPI that was? Glitter can be a major pain, I think you have to be in the mood for it!

    Kellie – Glad you made it 🙂

    Nikki – Thanks – it’s fabulous, isn’t it?

    Lucy – Thankyou – yes, this is one brand that hasnt been given a million % price increase over here – amazing!

    Have to say that inspired me to check out Tesco’svery small wet and wild selection today. I came out with one called Starry night and have just applied it. It is very pink and unbelievably glittery. Have never seen so much glitter in a polish and only used 2 coats. May use it as next weekend’s dog show manicure!
