| WORTH IT WEDNESDAY | Wet n Wild One Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish

Hey guys! For the past few weeks I've been collecting drugstore gel nail polishes to start a weekly series type of thing. Every Wednesday for the next five weeks I'm going to be reviewing a different drugstore brand of no UV light required at home gel nail polish. 
I think it's so great that brands are coming out with at home gel nail polishes that don't require a UV light. You can save tons of money on gel manicures and you don't have to expose yourself to those harmful UV lights! 
I picked up five different gel nail polishes to try out. I'm going to paint my nails every Sunday with a different polish and keep each polish on for a week then, every Wednesday I'm going to let you know if it's worth it or not!

For this week I tried out the Wet n Wild One Step Wonder Gel nail polish. This nail polish costs about $4.99 and can be found at most drugstores. Like the name says, it's a one step only gel nail polish, so no top coat is needed. I bought two of these, this awesome green color and peach color as well. I decided to try out the green one called, Wasa-Be With You? Like Wasabi sauce, get it? Ha-ha. :)

So does this actually work?

The application was alright. It's a little runny and super thin so if you move your fingers it may run a little. This was such a pain for me because I couldn't get the right amount on my nails at first, but I figured it out and the end result was pretty much flawless. The color is so pretty and fun but it isn't nearly as shiny as an actual gel manicure would be.
(Please ignore my cuticles, I was too lazy to do anything with them). 
This polish held up pretty well. Even after seven days there were only a few small chips. It did however, crack. There were small lines all over the polish after a few days, which isn't pretty. Removal was super easy, it just took a few wipes with a regular nail polish remover.

So...is this product worth it?

Eh. It is and it isn't. The Wet n Wild One Step Wonder Gel nail polish looks more like a regular nail polish once applied, no shine at all. I'm not sure if it should even be called a gel polish. Though, it did last a full week with barely any chips, but it did crack.
For me, it probably isn't worth it. Wet n Wild sells regular nail polishes for $0.99 each and they look exactly like these gel polishes, I'll probably just stick to those. If I'm looking for a gel nail polish, I'd rather pay a little more to actually get a high-quality one.
This Wet n Wild One Step Wonder Gel nail polish would be perfect for someone who's looking for a long lasting polish. Try putting a shiny top coat over it to make it shinier!
