I am trying to revamp my nail polish collection for this summer, and pastel shades are what I am eyeing on. I am planning to add mint, pastel shades of blue and pink. A neutral shade was not on top of my list as I already have a lot of them but while I was reorganizing my nail paint collection I spotted this pretty shade, which I think I bought some time back but forgot to use. So today, I am reviewing Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color Private Viewing 204B nail polish. If you love pastel shades there is a high probability that you will love this shade too.
What the product says:

Our ManiCurve™ Pro Brush! It’s absolutely incredible! The rod is flat so the liquid drains down to the bristles equally, and the rounded bristles hug your nail curves perfectly!
My Take on ‘Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color Private Viewing 204B’
Wet n Wild megalast nail polishes come in sturdy glass bottles. The quality of the nail polish bottle looks quite strong, and I assume that it will survive an accidental brush with a hard floor. It is a transparent bottle so the shade is easily visible from outside, and closely resembles to the actual shade of the nail polish. A long round black cap that holds the brush is mounted on the bottle. The applicator brush is broad, angled and dense, and the company calls it a ManiCurve pro brush. It can cover the entire nail bed in just one stroke, and that too without leaving any brush marks. The shade name and number are mentioned on the back side of the bottle. Overall, I like this strong and convenient packaging.
Private Viewing is kind of a neutral shade, which I think is perfect for summers. It is a perfect mannequin shade, but that depends on one’s skin tone. For me, two coats of this shade serve well in giving a natural look. I can also use it as a base of French manicure. But the irony is that 2 coats are not sufficient for a 100% opaque look, I need to apply three coats to get the full coverage. But if your skin tone is lighter then 2 coats might be sufficient for you to attain the naturally painted nail-look. Irrespective of the number of coats, I like this shade for summers.
The texture is gel-like but it is not very thick. With ManiCurve pro brush I can easily apply three coats without any dragging. The only thing I need to take care of while applying the third coats is to apply it once the first two coats are completely dry. The gel consistency increases the adhesion and hence, the longevity of the nail polish. Speaking of staying power, on my nails it did not stay on for five days as claimed by the company. The maximum intact period I observed is of three days, after which it starts chipping off the tips. But the good thing is over three days’ time there is no difference in the glossy salon-like finish.
It is formulated with calcium and minerals, and that makes me believe that I will strengthen my nails. Also, I have observed that unlike other nail polishes it does not make the nails look dry or discolored after application. Usually, I apply a transparent base coat to prevent the seepage of color to nail beds but with this nail polish I do not mandatorily need to follow that step. It is formulated in a way that would color the nails without causing any harm to them.
