A while back I bought Wet n Wild’s Morbid in an eBay auction, specifically because I’d seen it reviewed as a dupe of Chanel’s Black Pearl. When it arrived I thought there was no way it could resemble BP, mostly due to a smattering of bluegreen shimmer throughout. But on the nail it actually bears a passing resemblance to BP. It’s not an intentional resemblance, it’s really a failure of the formula to make the bluegreen shimmer show once applied. But that failure is paydirt. I refuse to pay Chanel’s prices on principle so this was a nice budget-friendly compromise. It’s no dupe, though, let’s be clear about that. But it’s similar enough to be good enough.
I decided to try it out, but as with all of my recent manis I felt like I wasn’t done without layering. So I added a coat of Spectraflair holographic top coat. Ohgodyes.
And um… do I need to mention my thrashed cuticles again? It’s a combination of lots of bug spray, sweating, and foraging in the woods, and I just can’t get on top of the nastiness.
