I mainly became interested in this polish after hearing from fivezero that some WnW polishes are made in Luxembourg so I have to find out for myself!
I don’t often buy nail polishes that come packaged with a cardboard backing – I think these were repackaged specifically for Dollarama – as you can see, this cost $1.50. The bottle contains 12.3ml of polish.
The first thing that struck me was how odd the bottle shape is! I don’t even know what to call it. It’s kind of like a sailboat.
The cap isn’t one of those with a outer “sleeve” that reveals a smaller inner cap – this is what you use to hold it. And surprisingly, it wasn’t too awkward to use.
The second thing I had to verify for myself that yes, indeed, this polish is also made in Luxembourg and filled in China (I assume the bottle is made in China):
That is crazy the polish is made there, considering the standard of living is super high in Luxembourg, and WnW is so inexpensive!
I did notice that the brush wasn’t evenly cut and was a bit splayed out:
The colour is a light beige creme – this is the quintessential “palate cleanser” as they say in the nail polish circles. And like most light creme / pastel shades, this applied with streaks on the first coat:
It looks fine after the second coat and top coat:
Despite being so inexpensive, this polish wore really well. I had no chips or tip wear on my left hand and only a small chip on my right thumb:
I wasn’t sure about this colour at first because I felt like it made me look like I had lobster hands – that is to say my hands looks ruddy and pink.
But when I got to work, my coworker proclaimed this the best colour for me, ever. 😛
I’m still not sure what the shade name “Yo Soy” means? If it’s a play on words, I’m not getting it. I think the WildShine polishes are now discontinued, and Wet n Wild now has the MegaLast polishes which has great reviews. Have you tried the MegaLast polishes? Any shades to recommend?
And this week’s random object is my electric toothbrush:
Sadly, this one is on its last legs – it doesn’t hold a charge anymore. I’ve had it for about 3 years so it’s not bad. What I loved about this one is that there’s a light indicator if I’m applying too much pressure while brushing. The replacement version doesn’t have that. What kind of toothbrush do you use? Manual or electric? What brand?
