How I Met Your Magenta & The Wonder Yellows

Good evening all! I have the last two swatches to the Wet n Wild Summer Getaway collection!

We've got The Wonder Yellows on the left and How I Met Your Magenta on the right.

These are some BRIGHT colors! Who doesn't LOVE bright summery colors??? I know I love them, mainly because they tend to make my skin look a lot more tan than it actually is!

First, The Wonder Yellows:
This is a frosty shimmery yellow. Very very sheer. I have two coats shown above, and you can still see visible free edge. I think a third coat would opaque this polish up! It applied beautifully! And the yellow shimmer is such a good color. It isn't as bright as the pink, so I wouldn't call it neon, but it is a sunshine yellow that will brighten up any day! :)

Next, How I Met Your Magenta:
This is a jelly HOT pink. It is really really bright. It has shimmer, but it isn't as shimmery as the yellow. It applied ok. It felt a bit goopy for me. Again, another sheer polish. This is two coats, above, and you can see the free edge. And again, I think a third coat would have done the trick. I'm not sure what type of finish this has. It isn't matte, but it isn't super glossy. Maybe satin? It was odd. But a top coat would shine this baby up just fine!

Here's what I did for both colors:
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat
1 coat Orly's base coat
2 coats of polish
No top coat.

All in all, I do like this polish line. I can see myself wearing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, How I Met Your Magenta,, and MAYYYYYBE The Wonder Yellows again. I will probably use Sage in the City as an accent color in some designs, and I really don't know if I will ever wear Fuchsiarama again. The formula was just too weird for me.

I think this collection was worth the $3.99 I spent on it. But I don't think I would have paid more.

What do you all think about these final colors? Would you wear them? I kinda like them together!

Until next time....


Thank you Lord for Blogger's auto save function. My eldest daughter, Seyhan, just turned the computer off RIGHT after I typed all of this out! I am so relieved to see nothing was deleted! *PHEW!*

Disclosure *I was not paid for this review. I was not given the polish for this review. I paid for the polish with my own money. This is purely my own opinion, thoughts, and suggestions about this polish.*


  1. I would definitely wear How I Met Your Magenta. Yellow is not flattering on me though. The two actually look really pretty together. Fun for summer.

    1. I agree! I don't think yellow looks good on me either. But they are bright and summery! Not too shabby for $3.99! <3
