Wet & Wild Pop Art Craze Limited Edition Polishes + Watercolor Nail Art

Hello and Happy Friday!

First things first: sale alert! For the rest of this month - yeah, sorry, ends tomorrow, lol -  Walgreens has 99c Wet&Wild cosmetics on sale for 69c each!  I found this entire collection of 6 Limited Edition polishes for under $5!

The best part is, though they are basic creme polishes, the formula is pretty spectacular.  I am a huge fan of A Blank Canvas, the white polish, because it is perfectly opaque, with no streaking or balding, in 2 coats.  For the price, I stopped by and picked up an extra for swatching and nail art later.

Let's check them out!

From Right to Left, these are:

  • Stand The Test of Lime
  • Listening To Blue Reed
  • Teal Slowly And See
  • Who Is Ultra Violet?
  • A Blank Canvas
  • The Clock Strikes Orange

Besides STTOLime, which needed three coats, the others are shown with 2 coats and NYC Clear as base and topcoat.  Lime was the sheerest and needs either three coats - shown here - or white undies to make it pop.

Listening to Blue Reed is a two coater, flawless, and a great bright blue color.

Teal Slowly And See is not teal, and it's a silly name, but it's a pretty polish!

Who Is Ultra Violet? is a bright purple creme.  When I first swatched it, I thought it reminded me of China Glaze's SUNSational creme in That's Shore Bright...

This is two coats of Violet with topcoat:

So, I decided to compare them.  When I put the bottles next to one another, they looked very different.  And when I swatched them, they were even more different.  My ring and index finger have TSB and my pinky and middle finger have WIUV?  Clearly, they are very different!

Next up is A Blank Canvas, which I mentioned above that I love! Great formula, a bright stark white that is opaque in 2 coats.

The Clock Strikes Orange is a bright orange creme.  I LOVE this color.  What the heck is happening to me!?!?  I am loving oranges and blues lately...OH! You know why!?!? KNICKS SEASON is coming up, that's why!!!  TCSO is going to look awesome with my special Knicks polish by Femme Fatale Lacquer over it!!!

I wanted to do something with all of the polishes, so I left A Blank Canvas on and used the other 5 colors to do a watercolor manicure.  Since it was a Pop Art theme, I added some bold decals by SuperModCustomZ.

Um....I don't like the finished product, LOL.  When the orange and green mixed, it made mud color. Sexxxxy!

Too muddy, right?

Pretty cute, right? You can find these, along with eyeshadow palettes of the same name, at Walgreens, Walmart, and other major retailers.
