Wild Cactus is an emerald green creme. If you haven't heard yet, Emerald is the Pantone color of the year, so we will be seeing lots of it this year. Application was good and the formula was decent, just a little thick. I didn't have any issues with the slight thickness. In fact I think it helped application. I used 2 coats for full coverage over Nail Tek Foundation II base and did not use a top coat.

Wild Cactus is very bright in the sun. Not neon bright, just vibrant. With this shade of green I would not be surprised to see some staining, so you might want to wear extra base coat just in case.
In case you're wondering, Wild Cactus is several shades darker than Abyss. Here is a side by side bottle comparison of the two.
Abyss is on the left and Wild Cactus is on the right. The difference is more noticeable in person I promise, but you can still see they are not dupes. You can also see that Abyss is bluer than Wild Cactus.
