Wet N Wild reintroduces Cougar Attack in their Spoiled line, which originally is from their On the Prowl collection. AND is a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Superstar. So if you missed Cougar Attack the first time around, here's another chance to snag a bottle, except this time, you'll have to deal with their big moppy brushes.

This time the brush was a big fat square. I found it hard to work with.
In an earlier post I suggested using a brush from an old empty bottle of nail polish, as a way to deal with WNW's super soft and fat brushes, and a reader asked if I actually finished a bottle. Well, no, not really, I've come close to finishing a couple of bottles of China Glaze's fastforward top coat, but that's about it. So I used an old empty bottle with brush, and instead of filling the bottle with acetone I filled it with nail polish thinner instead. Acetone breaks down nail polish and I didn't want to ruin my bottle of WNW. Thinner contains ethyl and butyl acetates, which are normally in nail polish. Therefore, if a trace amount of that ends up into a good bottle of nail polish, it will not be ruined.
So, I used an old China Glaze brush to apply Cougar Attack and it worked like a charm. When I was finished I just put the used brush into the thinner and in a few minutes the brush was clean. I also rinsed the brush with thinner before using it, in case it had residual top coat still in between the bristles. Next time, I'm going to try to trim the brush and see how that turns out.
