Wet n Wild Everybody Loves Redmond and Party of 5 Glitters Swatches and Review

Eep! I'm super late posting. And I'm a bad girl today! I use the alarm on my phone to wake me up for school in the morning, but I forgot to take my phone of silent from when I was in class the previous day! So I overslept and missed my lecture AND my lab. I feel bad, but I have to say, all that extra sleep was reaaaaaally nice. Oh well, I'm doing really well in my classes so I guess one day isn't going to hurt me.

I received Everybody Loved Redmond and Party of 5 Glitters from Wet n Wild recently for review. I have been lemming Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday polish for a long time but didn't want to pay nearly $20 for it. So I was really excited to try the less expensive Wet n Wild version (they aren't exact dupes, but the concept is the same, large and small pieces of multicolored glitter in a clear base). I wasn't expecting much from Everybody Loves Redmond because it is just a red jelly, but I ended up loving it the most.

I LOVE this red. Like most jelly-finish polishes it is a tad sheer. I used 3 coats to get the polish as opaque as possible, but I was happy with it at 2. This is the perfect red and it only cost around $2! The formula is smooth and non streaky and it builds well. It is a bit on the thicker side, but it didn't cause me any problems in application.

Here is 2 coats Party of 5 Glitters over Everybody Loves Redmond. I REALLY wanted to love the glitter, but I just don't. It was too sparse at one coat, but 2 coats made it way to thick for me, I think it would have looked better with a third coat, if it was possible. And I just don't like the way the large glitter looks on me. I love looking at it on other people and in pictures, but it's just too... messy and unorganized and it bothers me (a weird quirk I have).  And this isn't the fault of this particular polish; I would dislike ANY polish like this one. So really, I'm glad I never bought Happy Birthday because I know it would have disappointed me.

It's so strange, I like the way the glitter looks in the picture, but when I wore I didn't like it at all. I disliked it so much that I removed it immediately after taking the picture. Yeah,  I'm weird.

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!

Disclosure: These polishes were provided to me by Wet n Wild for review purposes. As always, all opinions are completely my own.


  1. That is one sexy red! I always pass on reds, but I am kinda diggin that one. I love Party of 5 glitters for "sandwiching" between other colors. It is P.I.T.A though! :)

  2. I love that red color! Sucks you didn't like the glitter. I have that one and love it! Just did a post with it over white nail polish which is my fav way to wear it =)

  3. I may have to buy that red shade! It's beautiful...and I love Everybody Loves Raymond :P

  4. i own both & adore them!
    great swatches(:

  5. I probably wouldn't have thought to layer those two, but I do like the results! OOOOH! =D

  6. Party of Five does look like a good dupe for Happy Birthday. I just picked up Milani Gems, which is also a dupe for HB.

    Speaking of WnW polishes, I saw the Wet n Wild LE Mermaid Cove collection at my local Duane Reade. I am trying to talk my BF into buying them for me. :P

  7. How did you remove the glitter? I've tried glitter overcoats before and I didn't like how hard it was to remove, even though I liked the messy/unorganized results you're talking about. I'm sorry you didn't like how it turned out.

  8. When I saw this glittery polish I was like, "OMG I NEED IT WHAT IS IT???" I actually just bought it yesterday as I wanted to try out some of the new WNW polishes! YES!!!

  9. It may be because I'm kind if conservative but I think "big" glitters go well with a color that's closer to the glitter. Have you noticed this? I would be comfy wearing party of five with a silvery color. Even a silvery red. Some really like the contrast of the bold red though.


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
