NOTD: Wet 'n Wild Mermaid Cove "Waves of Enchantment"

(with flash)

I recently posted the display of the new Wet 'n Wild Mermaid Cove nailpolishes.  I ended up picking a few of these polishes up, including Waves of Enchantment.  This particular color is a bright orange/coral with gold and iridescent pink sparkles in this.  These colors remind me very much of the Zoya Summer colors, and at $1.99, this was *just* different enough for me to grab (since I bought the Zoya colors too).

I am wearing two coats above.  I could have probably put another coat on top, since it appears a bit sheer towards the tips in the picture with the flash.  In real life, it looked perfectly fine.  These did dry quickly, but I also used a quick-drying top coat.  The lasting power was nice too - I did not experience very much wear or chipping.  I find that with shimmery/sparkly colors like this, they tend to chip more, but this was a nice surprise. 

I took some closeups of the bottles, too.  I think it gives a better representation to the color as opposed to the swatches above.  This is by far the prettiest color in the collection, in my opinion.  I love the orange, pink and golds.  It's a gorgeous color for summer - shimmery, bright, but not over the top or difficult to wear.

So, have you seen these colors?  Which ones did you pick up?
