SWATCH: Shrimp on the Barbie – Spoiled (Wet n Wild)

Shrimp on the Barbie is featured in the Spoiled line by Wet n Wild which is sold exclusively at CVS. These nail polishes retail for $1.99/ea but you can get them for as low as $0.99 during a sale – even free if you have some ECB’s to throw at them. I had become quite obsessed with the shades and purchased a whole bunch – this particular shade being one of the ones I bought on a final around thru CVS after purchasing a whole lot of them. I found it was increasingly difficult to find a CVS that had a full display showcasing all the colors in this collection. The brushes on these are wider and remind me of the Sally Hansen Insta Dry brushes and the formula is pretty stellar for a $2 polish. I quite enjoy them.

Shrimp on the Barbie is a gorgeous red based coral-y shade that has a whole bunch of golden flecks in it. It takes only two coats to become completely opaque and I find it applies effortlessly. The color itself is reminiscent of a shrimps shell after it has been cooked thru. The flecks in it are a nice touch and they reflect beautifully in sunlight.

I do say this would be a perfect manicure AND pedicure shade, perfect for summer and even days where you’re lounging on the beach catching some rays.
