Pop Beauty Wine Wonder review and swatches.

POP Beauty makes some of my favorite nail polishes.  The colors, longevity, non-staining formula, price and amount are all pretty much perfect in my book.  Of course, my cosmetic addiction causes me to venture out into other brands, but in the end, POP Nail Glams have never let me down and the price is unbeatable.  That being said, POP Beauty Wine Wonder ($10 US/ .5 fl.oz.) has been my choice of nail color for the past two weeks.  This beautiful rich deep burgundy color is sure to provide a hint of edginess to any look.

The Pros:

  1. The formula has a medium consistency, yet highly pigmented.
  2. The brush is well constructed and able to distribute the polish evenly across the nail bed.
  3. The longer handle can be used to manipulate the brush into the tightest corners.
  4. The price/amount ratio is on par with OPI, Essie and other drugstore brands, yet the quality is equivalent to higher-end brands, if not better.
  5. This polish is easily removable..It does not stain the nails or cuticle during removal.♥
  6. Opacity is reached using two coats, color similar to Essie’s Berry Hard.
  7. The finish is outstanding…creamy and smooth!
  8. The polish lasted 5 days, with a top coat, before any noticeable chipping..this will vary according to one’s activities.
  9. POP Beauty polishes are 3-free: Formaldehyde, DBP, and Toluene free.
  10. POP Beauty polishes come in 34 shades, some sites offer even more shades.

The Cons:

  1. Select retail locations sell this brand to purchase in person, however there are a multitude of online retailers.
  2. Due to the deep color, Wine Wonder can settle darker in certain spots if a heavy hand is used during application.
  3. A third coat yields dark results, similar to Essie’s Wicked.  I like the outcome, some may find the color too drastic.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you POP Beauty Wine Wonder is a wondrous find.  This color also makes a beautiful pedicure color against a pair of black peep toe shoes, open toe sandals, or dare I say, flip-flops this time of year.  Adding an additional third coat deepens the color, but the polish does not settle thickly on the nails.  A matching burgundy lip color would make for the ultimate sexy holiday look.  What are you planning to wear for the holidays?  Be well and stay safe.

  1. I love this color, reminds me of Burberry Oxblood I saw this weekend. I might have to get this color instead. You can’t beat the price! Thanks for reviewing this brand. I love your blog, keep up the great work.

    • Hello Linda,
      You must have read my mind. I saw Burberry Oxblood on Cafemakeup.com (http://tinyurl.com/n2tbpk6) and commented how similar they appear. Of course, I do not have Oxblood to verify the likeness, regardless you just cannot go wrong with Wine Wonder (especially the price). Thank you for your support and commenting.
