Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers 2014 Nail Polish Collection

Hi, all!

I'm super pumped about all the Halloween collections that I'm starting to see in stores.  I managed to pick up the polishes from Wet n Wild's Fantasy Makers for 2014.  These looked pretty hum drum in the bottles, but I was pleasantly surprised once I get them on... JELLIES, people.

First, we have Ghouls Rush In, a lovely bright pink jelly.  This one went on beautifully in two coats.

Next, we've got Goosebump Suit, a bright orange jelly.  It went on nicely in two coats, and surprisingly, I did not hate this orange on my fair skin.  This would be extra awesome on deeper skin tones.

We've also got Queen of Envy, which looks kelly green in the bottle but a touch lighter and brighter on the nail.  This one was a bit more transparent and tricky than the other formulas.  I used four coats to even it out.

The next color is Roach Busters.  This one is a bright yellow green with subtle orangey-red shimmer throughout.  I didn't detect any hint of shimmer in the bottle, so I was quite surprised to see it coming out fairly strongly in the sun.  No problems with application; it's shown below with two easy coats.

There's also a glow in the dark top coat in this collection cleverly named Glo' Money, Glo' Problems.  It didn't change the appearance of Roach Busters when I layered it on, and I applied three thick coats in the hopes of achieving a really strong glow effect.  When I initially went into the closet to check out the glow properties, I saw nothing but darkness.  I remember "charging" a lot of my glow in the dark toys in the light when I was little, so I tried the same with the polish...

This is the best photo I could capture.  It does definitely glow after some time under the light, but it fades rather quickly, so I would not plan on glowing all night long with this one.  I recall trying to paint my tennis shoes with glow in the dark nail polish in high school with similarly temporary effects.  It's still kinda neat though.

There's also a re-promote of Wet n Wild's appropriately famous one-coat wonder, Black Creme, in this collection in addition to tons of other fun Halloweeny cosmetics (I also snagged the glittery black liquid liner!).  I was pleasantly surprised by this collection, which you can find most anywhere that sells Wet n Wild.  I've seen it out at Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and K-Mart at this point.

Which Fantasy Makers are your favorites this year?!

  1. Oh man! Those are cool! Roach Busters is my favorite, I can't resist acid greens. I may need to get the others too, especially if I can find them on sale.

  2. I loved this collection! I didn't even notice the shimmer in Roach Busters until I actually put it on. Usually you see it in the bottle, then it hides on the nail. A nice surprise to have the opposite. :)
