PRICE and AVAILABILITY: For me price is always a big deal...especially for something that I'm obsessed with buying (nail polish, conditioners, etc)
Orly Brand: Orly nail polish can be found at your local Sally's Beauty Supply or Ulta for around $7-$8 (sometimes you can catch Orly on sale for $5-$6)
Wet N Wild Megalast Brand: Wet N Wild nail polish can be found at both Walgreens and CVS for $1.99
Winner: I think it's obvious that Wet N Wild wins this round. You can't beat paying $1.99 for nail polish!
Orly Brand: 1 Gazillion!
Wet N Wild Brand: 18
Winner: No seriously, Orly clearly wins this round because they have a TON of color choices and as a girl who loves to change up my nail color who can resist that!
LOOK: As you can see from the pictures both the Orly (left) and Wet N Wild (Right) polishes look great on and with a proper base coat and top coat the shine is unbelievable!
Winner: In my opinion both brands are the winner of this round. You can't go wrong with either polish when it comes to the look!
DURABILITY: Now to me this is the most important round simply because once I polish my nails I expect to get a full 7 days of wear out of it! My schedule just doesn't allow me the time to redo my nails multiple times a week. Please note that I used the exact same products (top coat and base coat) for both brands.
Orly Brand: The first 3 days of wearing the polish were pure bliss, however around day 4 or 5 I started noticing major chipping and flaking of the polish. I'm used to the polish wearing off a little bit, but the Orly brand chipped in a MAJOR way. Now in Orly's defense, I don't take it easy on my nails (my nails are natural by the way). Anything I want to do and/or need to do I will do. This includes washing my hair, dishes, cleaning, various activities at my job, etc. The interesting this about this is that if you notice on my fourth finger I used a China glaze crackle polish over the orly. This polish on these two fingers never chipped. I may decide to give china glaze a chance in the future :)
Wet N Wild Brand: I normally get a full 7 days of wear out of the Wet N Wild brand. Of course as the days go by the color fades a little around the edges, but I've never noticed any major chipping or flaking.
Winner: For me Wet N Wild definitely wins this round. I love that I can get 6-7 days of wear from this polish.
OVERALL WINNER: I really wanted to like the Orly brand especially since it has such a wide variety of colors, but between the price and lack of durability I just can't see myself shelling out around $8 for a polish that only lasts 3-4 days be fore I need a polish change! Overall Wet N Wild is my favorite out of the two brands because at $2 a bottle for a polish that goes on smoothly and lasts a full seven days...well to put it simply 'You can't beat that with a stick!' Lol please excuse my country quote, but you get my point!
