I think the folks at Ipsy.com must have heard the cries of their subscribers about the lack of makeup and nail polish in the March glam bag. April’s bag contained both, including a nail polish by Sation in color Love At First Byte. This color is a peachy, flesh toned nude, just perfect for spring.

What I Say
I really like this color. I’m a fan of flesh toned nail polish because it doesn’t show chips as easily. SinceI type all day, my polish never lasts long so that’s important to me. The peach color also looks nice against my skin. I applied two coats, and so far so good as far as chips are concerned.

FTC Disclosure: I purchased these items with my own money and was not compensated by Wet-n-Wild for this review.
On my way home from work Tuesday, I needed to make a quick stop at my local Walgreens and, as always, I took a stroll thru the beauty aisle to see if there was anything new on sale. I came across the Wet-n-Wild MegaLast nail polish that were on sale for 99 cents so I decided to pick up a few colors.
This MegaLast polish claims to provide 5 days of chip-resistant wear due to the resin polymer system, which creates increased color adhesion to nails. This polish is also calcium and mineral fortified to rebalance and prevent nail discoloration. Not bad for just $1! I picked up three colors to try – Tropicalia, Private Viewing, and Club Havana.
The one color that really caught my eye was Club Havana, a bright mango color, so I decided to try it first. As I opened the bottle, the first thing I noticed was the large applicator brush. This full-coverage brush is supposed to make for one-stroke application, and for the most part it did. It took a minute for me to get just the right amount of polish on the brush, but I can say that the larger brush did speed up the painting process.
Here is how the color turned out after two coats. I honestly could have gotten an opaque look with just one, but I like to apply the first coat lightly and then build from there. I absolutely love this color for Spring and Summer – it looks amazing against my skin completion. What do you think? What’s your favorite Wet-n-Wild MegaLast nail polish? Do tell!

As a new subscriber to the Ipsy Glam Bag service, I was excited to see the range of products I got in my first bag. One of those items was a bottle of nail polish by Nailtini. When I first opened the box and saw the color – bloody red, hence the name Bloody Mary – I must admit I was slightly disappointed. Okay, let me stop. I was highly disappointed! I never wear red polish! Then I saw that other Ipsy subbies received a nude color, which is always my go to for my nails because it hides chipping well, and I was pouting. But for the sake of review for you all, I decided to give it a try. I was heading out for a much needed pedicure so I decided I would take my Nailtini polish with me and let the nail technician give it a twirl. Once applied, I saw that the color was actually not as deep as I thought initially. Once I returned home, I applied the color to my fingernails as well. Here is my review on the Nailtini nail polish.
What They Say
Think of this as the all-premium well menu, featuring glossy, glide-on nail lacquers in pure unadulterated color. Wear them “straight” or in any combination to create the nail cocktail of your choosing.
What I Say
I was very pleased with how vivid and glossy the color was. I only applied one coat, and the nail technician at the nail spa only applied one coat as well, and there was great color pay off. I applied an anti-chip top coat as I normally would, but the polish still lasted longer than other polishes. It is Day 4 and I’m just starting to see some chipping. The odor was not at all overwhelming as some polishes can be. This polish retails at $13 for a .5 oz bottle, so at that price point I expect the results that I received. The Ipsy Glam Bag in its entirety was $10, so I definitely got well over my money’s worth with just this one item.
