First impressions of Wikkid Polish, well.... they're Wicked!

Wikkid Polishes now available in Canada at NailStuff.ca

As you may remember, I get a little excited when I get nail products to review!  Victoria from NailStuff.ca absolutely spoiled us with polishes from the new brands she is carrying!  Wikkid Polish is based in the UK and is unable to ship polishes internationally, so when I heard that NailStuff.ca would be carrying them I was very excited to finally try them.

They did not disappoint.  The first polish that caught my eye when I was asked to choose a few was Dragon Fruit.  It is a Thermal and a Flakie, two of my current polish obsessions.  For these photos I had to use hot and cold water to get a nice transition as I live in Canada and lately even with the furnace running nearly around the clock, my hands are cold ALL the time, so please excuse any water drops. Here I dipped them in warm water, so the bright fuchsia is the cold state and the creamy pearl white is the warm.

This shot shows a more stark contrast line, and did I mention that although this is two coats, it was completely opaque for me in just one!?!?  I love a one coat coverage polish.

I decided to add some stamping nail art using another one coat wonder brand, Superchic, also available at NailStuff.ca.

This morning the sun was shining (about darn time) and the light in my bathroom caught the gold shimmer just perfect so I had to take advantage!

The second Wikkid thermal I chose is Myrtle from the What Wizardry Is This collection, cold it's a steely blue and warm it's a pale almost white blue, and it's full of iridescent green flakes.  On it's own this polish dries completely matte and was opaque in two coats.

Next up I chose the Elements collection, and every single one of these is gorgeous and I am so glad I did.  This is Water, Air, Earth and Fire.   Air is probably my favourite out of the four and is just stunning when it catches the light!

Ophelia is part of the Out of This World collection, a pretty multichrome, but I chose it because she was also my favourite Shakespeare character in Hamlet which I was obsessed with for a few years early on in high school.  Sometimes I do choose polishes just for the name, and it's an added bonus when they look this good on my nails!

I had to include this shot I took at the window, the way the trees were reflected and the dark shadows just made it look so Shakespearean/ Hamlet-y?  It also showed off the multichrome shift nicely.

I am also obsessed with everything 80's!  This I'm A Barbie Girl bright, glowing hot pink is right up my alley and I have a perfect neon glitter topper that will be added to this for some of my summer poolside manicures!

The formulas on the next two are very thick as they are just packed with flakes, covered great in two coats and have a great metallic finish.  I suspect they will both be gorgeous with a matte topcoat.  Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner is a pretty purple with flashes of blue, and really who didn't love Dirty Dancing?

Here's Looking At You Kid is a shiny metallic pink polish, and because I swatched this on my other hand, you can see if you aren't accurate with the application, cleanup can be a little tricky!  But there are worse things that sparkly cuticles!

Lastly is Grapeaway, a grape-y purple shimmer polish, which I am also interested to see matte, but was too excited to try all the polishes that I didn't try different finishes.  So here it is, again on my other hand, so not the greatest representation of how pretty it is (I really need to practice painting more smoothly on my right hand!).

Overall impressions, Wikkid polish has a wide variety of quality polishes at a very reasonable price.  The formulas vary as expected by finish but all are workable and have great payoff, there was only one that I tried that needed a third coat.  I am very excited they are now readily available in Canada and definitely have plans to add more to my collection!

I hope you enjoyed this review and are having a great day despite losing an hour of sleep last night!  (Seriously how is Daylight Savings still a thing?)  ~Kelly
