I try to come up with a clever titles for my posts. But this time, I just couldn’t top the name of one of the polishes, Wet N Wild Spoiled Cougar Attack. I’m going to pretend it is so-called because it looks “dangerous” and “cougar-like” and not because it conjures up a vision of a mature woman on the prowl! I usually don’t go perusing the Wet N Wild Spoiled rack – but I’m always on the lookout for a good plain ole’ brown glitter polish (any ideas for one that’s not too copper?) and this one caught my eye. I was pleasantly surprised with it. It’s very coppery, but the dense glitter is suspended in a dark brown jelly base. It’s actually quite wearable all by itself and makes a great Fall polish.
But of course, I couldn’t leave well enough alone. So I followed Nailside’s Explosion Design Tutorial and added a China Glaze Harvest Moon explosion. Harvest Moon is a copper metallic from the Hunger Games Collection…also a great shade for the Fall.
I do not love this mani like I thought I would. In theory, it seemed like a cool idea to do a foil over a glitter (instead of the other way around), but my explosion gets lost on the nail. You really have to examine my nails closely to appreciate the design. I’d love to see a teal explosion over the glitter. That would pop.
Still, big thumbs up to Cougar Attack. At $1.99, it’s really a special polish.
