Wet 'n' Wild Ice Baby Swatches- It's a Glitter Kind of Day...

Happy Humpday!

  Today I have swatches of Wet 'n' Wild's Ice Baby Collection. It took me forever to get these done because I was actually wearing these *gasp*. I skipped Three of the colors because... I don't really know why because I'm kinda wishing I had picked them up now.. Anyhow... Here are the Five I picked up.
Back Alley Deals. Amazing Grape Purple micro fine glitter with larger round Magenta bits. I love the contrast between the Two colors of the glitters. Just amazing!!

Cost is no Issue. Amazing Aqua colored micro fine glitter with larger Blue particles mixed in. This is unique and beautiful!  

It's all in the Cut. Lovely micro fine Lavender glitter with Light Pink larger particles mixed in. This looks like fairy dust. Very pretty and girly but absolutely not boring!

Believe me, It's Real. Royal Blue micro glitter with larger Purple particles. This is another winner. Great jewel toned glitter. 

Diamond in the Rough. Charcoal micro glitter with Silvery iridescent larger particles mixed in. This is so  sophisticated and textured looking. LOOVE this!

  All of these glitters are suspended in a clear base so they could also be layered. All of these swatches were Three coats of glitter. While they are in a clear base, the micro fine glitter makes it very easy to build up to full coverage. These did not wear great on me at all. They were chipping off within the same day of application.. I do not mind this because I'd rather them chip off than have to deal with the removal of such fine glitters. For me, these will be great "day polishes". Basically colors I wear when I want to be really flashy but they have crap wear. The applied really easily and dry really quick. These dry gritty and dull so a good top coat is an absolute must. Even though they have crap wear I really LOVE these. I love the colors and I love the fact that most of these colors are dupes to some very expensive polishes that have come out recently. These are a serious WIN for me!

Which are your faves?

  1. Wow, I like every single one of these!! :D!!! Gorgeous swatches! I am so disappointed that so many cool polishes just don't show up around my part of town at all! And I live in the nations capital! Sigh. :( These polishes would be so perfect for me because I usually change my nail polish every 1-2 days. XD

  8. I love the Aqua & the blue but I think they would have been just as pretty without the bigger blue & purple chunky glitter. I just like the bright colors. Pretty. I agree with you about them chipping off tho.

  10. with how gorgeous these polishes are I could care less about the wear! I'd reapply everyday if I had to! - I say that now, but when it's time to remove them its a whole other story! ;) hahaha I will definitely be looking out for these polishes!!

  14. Back Alley Deals is probably my favorite. I love the purple and pink glitter combo!

  15. I've used the WnW pink glitter one and it's a beast to remove. I agree, I would rather it chip off so I don't have to work so hard to get it off!!

  16. These swatches are beautiful! They really make me want these glitter polishes, but I know what removing them would be like, lol! Aaah, so conflicted!

  18. Love these!!! Diamond in the Rough looks a lot like CG "Some Like it Haute!" Love it! But holy smokes, SLIH is a beast to remove. Took me an hour to get it off with soaking! :O Totally worth it. ;)

  19. I only have Believe Me, It's Real and It's All In The Cut and both are amazing. I still really want Back Alley Deals though.

  20. In my opinion, every single one of these is a winner!

  21. Trying not to lust over these--W&W is so darn hard to find here! (I know, really?)

    I did get "It's All In the Cut" off *bay because I have nothing like it....but those blue/turquoise ones are hollering at me and I'm on a haul diet.

  22. Wow - so I've seen swatches of these shades around, but just wow you pictures are so real and vivid they are just jumping out of the screen at me lol! Still haven't found these in NYC :/

  23. First of all, I want to make sure all of your readers are aware that Nouveau Cheap has an interactive map to help people find out where these limited edition polishes have been spotted near them. Maybe you can edit your blog post to include a link?

    Secondly, I don't know what this means but I have the exact same name as you with the same spelling and I also got the exact 4 glitters that you did. Weird, huh?

    I've only worn IAitC as a full mani once and didn't have problems with chipping. However, I wore it sponged today and had some tipwear after a few hours.

  24. Just realized, it's the exact 4 you have. And the others colors just didn't speak to me as much ;)

  25. I will definitely be on the lookout for these. I'm hoping that a base and topcoat will improve the wear like the care I've been showing to other Wet n Wild manis.
