Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish Review/Swatch ~ Pretty Peas!

Hey divas! Hope you are having a great day. Everyone is talking about the new 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish launched by wet n wild recently. So, I had to get it and more than that I’m a crazy fan of wet n wild nail polishes because of the price and pretty colors. I got the shade pretty peas from the wonder gel line which is a beautiful mint green color.

Wet n wild have impressive claims on 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Color on their website. Such as first gel formula that doesn’t require a top coat, no UV light required, provides up to two weeks of wear and no harsh removal. 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish is 3-free formula which means it doesn’t have Formaldehyde, Toluene, or Phthalates. I admire polishes which don’t have harmful chemicals!

  • Pigmentation: As far as pigmentation is concerned, it’s just fine. I was expecting it to be bit WET N WILD 1 STEP WONDER GEL POLISH - PRETTY PEAS #731A - NO LIGHTmore pigmented. I needed three coats to get it this opaque.
  • Formula: Like I mentioned above wet n wild 1 Step Wonder Gel line has 3-free formula, no Formaldehyde, Toluene, or Phthalates. Consistency is good for a gel polish. How ever it was streaky in first two coats. Third layer did make it streak free and opaque.Removal was easy like any other normal nail polish.

It surely dries with out any UV  light, three coats took me around fifteen minutes to dry. Then again I noticed small bubbles on my nails. I’m not sure if I got a bad bottle or all the shades are like this. If any of you have experienced the same, let me know in the comments below.

  • Finish: The name itself describe the finish and it does give gel-like finish and shine. I didn’t add any top coat just to see the original shine and wear.
  • Staying Power: According to Wet n Wild website, it has up to two weeks of shine and color. For me, it was good for four days. Maybe with base coat and top coat, the wear time can be longer.
  • Where to Buy: I have seen wonder gel shades in Rite Aid, Walgreens. It is available in Wet n Wild website and Walmart website. Each shade retails for $4.99. I got mine from Walgreens with a coupon of $1 off. You can get it on eBay or Amazon  too!

  1. Dear Demi,

    I love the color of nail polish you’re wearing! I think this would be a great shade to wear during the summer. Would you recommend this gel nail polish compared to other brands you have tried? I would love to try out the best affordable gel nail polish. Please let me know!

    1. Hi Grace, I bought this color as I was searching for a good polish for summer. This product is very affordable but I didn’t like that it made bubbles after application. I would suggest to go for a better quality gel polish like Revlon Gel Envy, Essie Gel Couture or OPI Gel Colors.

  2. Pretty color! Can’t beat the price! I’m lucky if my polish lasts 24 hours. It doesn’t seam to matter how much the polish costs, so it’s great to get one under $5.

    1. Hi Sanda, I too liked the color and the fact that it is so affordable. But was expecting it to perform better!
