Wet n Wild Morbid

I remember Wet n Wild back when I was a teenager, but a lot has changed with this brand.  Surprisingly, they don't have as big of a following as I thought they would, despite their new marketing campaigns - better packaging, a Twitter account that is quite active - Facebook and MySpace, and then their official website has all been overhauled as well.  They also have a VIP program where you can apparently get free products and I'm guessing coupons.


The "Craze" collection came out in summer of 2009, but I'm a bit late to the party.  These bottles are smaller than your average China Glaze or Zoya (0.34 fl oz instead of 0.5 fl oz) but the price tag reflects it.  I only paid $1.99 for this (and I got another bottle to be reviewed later).  One bad thing with a small bottle is a small brush too.
I seriously thought this brush was going to be the death of me, but thankfully it wasn't that hard to work with!  I don't have petite hands, but I don't have huge man hands either - but the cap settled nicely in my hand.  Reminded me of a big crayon.


Wet n Wild is big 3 free, and it appears from a link on their website that they do NOT animal test - so those of you who are really big on that, yay for Wet n Wild!


Morbid is a dark green with teal shimmer in it.  It's definitely a unique color.  In the bottle it looked like dark moss green to me - like, it's been swimming in a scummy pond for awhile, but on the nail, it reminded me of a dark cousin of China Glaze Emerald Sparkle!  I used a base of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Morbid and topped it with a coat of Seche Vite.


Here's Morbid in the sun - the shimmer almost looks like a microglitter from here (remember all pictures are click-able to show full size 450x600).  You can really see that murky green in the bottle there.


Here on the side, you can see how it looks more like a dark cousin of Emerald Sparkle.  It's a nice vampy green that looks really different from each angle you look at it from.  I was a fan.


And a shade picture - I'm having a bit of an issue getting my outer pinkie polished as you can see.  I'm still learning ^_^


Overall, I was happy with this, especially knowing I only paid $2.  My recent Walgreens trip for the new Sally Hansen HDs ended up running me $50 for all 6 bottles and that's not fun to swallow.  I could definitely see this as a good wintery (or even fall!) night color.  I also would like to try some Konad with it someday! 


Wet n Wild is located at a variety of drug and grocery stories.  You can use their product finder on their website [official website].
