Fergie Can Suck It

The relief mani.

The relief mani.

I’ve had a love hate relationship with Fergie since she whined about a child and it’s blanket in her song “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” She’s a grown ass woman crooning about missing a man “like a child misses a blankeeee.” PLEASE.

So it truly pained me when I HAD to purchase a nail color from her collaboration with Wet’n’Wild.  The fluorescent neon hue screamed my name and I got over myself and bought the damn bottle. I mean, she’s got funky style – how bad could the polish be, really?

It was horrid.  The photos do not show how the actual color turned out. Instead of being a vibrant, neon pink, it was a beachy coral that was dull.  It made my fingers look like they belonged to an 8-year-old Black Eyed Peas fan with a blankee in tow.

F Fergie and her Wet'n'Wild ways!

Don't buy.

Don’t buy unless you want a mani that belongs to a prepubescent girl.

Upon application, I added the sparkly top coat to see if it would make any difference.  And it did. I looked like I was a kindergartener that just applied a birthday manicure. Needless to say, I hated the outcome, the product and now realize why I stopped buying Wet’n’Wild nail polish so long ago. Lesson learned. AGAIN.

Because I do my nails Sunday nights, I slept on it, thinking I’d feel better about it in the morning. Nope. Loathed the color and Fergie all the more – especially since I was having to paint my nails twice in two days.

Here’s what Ted and I did last night…

Better. Pawsitively.

Pawsitively better.

Finger lickin’ good.

Upon completion, we snuggled up in our blankee (hey, I didn’t say I didn’t have one – I just don’t whine about it in song), drank wine and literally watched paint dry for the second night in a row.

Lucky us!

  1. Love the B/W you ended up doing. I am definitely going to stay away from Wet’n’Wild. I seriously don’t think I’ve purchased a one of their products in about 10 years. Wait, wrong. I bought their juicy lip balms last summer, which they’ve changed since then (got rid of UVA protection!), so now Wet’N’Wild has nothing for me. Def not a fan of Fergie.

    • I thought I was going to stay away from the Wet’n’Wild until I saw that stupid neon (or so I thought) pink. My impulse got the best of me! They got rid of UVA protection?!?!

      • Yes. The juice balms has UVA and UVB protection and were yummy and just slightly tinted. Perfect for summer. When I went to buy a new one, I looked at the ingredients and they got rid of the UVA sunscreens! WTF?! So mad. It’s not like they got rid of it and then also lowered the price. Although, they are only $3 to begin with.

      • WTF indeed! What kind of company removes sunscreens from a product this day and age? Although the tiny price tag, they somehow managed to get them in there before…stupid W’n’W!
