This polish is gorgeous! It’s also impossible to photograph, so I did the best I could. Really, you should just go buy it and see for yourself.
This is Checkin’ Into Rehab from Spoiled by Wet n Wild. It is a dark purple jelly with tiny flakes that shift from pink to orange and a little bit gold. This reminds me a little bit of Deborah Lippmann’s Ray of Light, but this is purple instead of blue and the flakies are much smaller.
I think this was around four or five coats. This is super sheer, but totally worth it. I might try layering this next time. Maybe Essie No More Film? I had to use to coats of topcoat to get this to dry. Again, totally worth it.
The sparkle in this is subtle, but really comes out in bright light. Even when it’s not visible, the purple jelly itself is beautiful. I really do love this polish. Contemplating Top 10 status.
And in case you couldn’t really tell from the first two pictures, just look at this:
It’s a little more purple in real life, but photographs blue, and this is the furthest I could adjust the color without completely messing it up.
And the best part? This was $1.99 at CVS (so I don’t think it totally counts as breaking my no-buy).
I have been pretty impressed with the Spoiled polishes so far, the polish itself is pretty great quality for the price. The only thing I don’t like is the brush, which is super wide – much wider than the OPI brushes and even wider than my pinky nail, making it impossible to not get any on my cuticles.
What do you think of Checkin’ Into Rehab? Have you tried the Spoiled polishes yet?
