Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 You know I don't normally swatch collections.  I'm far too lazy and unmotivated.  But, I felt the need to swatch the Wet 'N Wild Color Icon Ice Ice Baby collection this evening, so I had to go with it!
 All swatches are shown over one coat of Wet 'N Wild Black Pearl ('cause that's how I roll) and I did use top coat on all of them because they go really dull without it.  Oh!  And I only used one coat of each of the glitters over the black.
 Look at all the teensy tiny hairy glitter!!

 More delicate bar glitter.  I am a happy camper here.
 I was lucky enough to find these at Walgreens last week after checking only two stores!  That pretty much never happens to me.

 It's All In The Cut might be my favorite from the collection, but gosh it's hard to just pick one!

 This pretty one is very similar to Hello Kitty Silver Star.  They are not dead on dupes, though.
 Diamond In The Rough has more large pieces of glitter and it's more opaque looking over all.
 Lobster hand much?
 Cost Is No Issue is really opaque in just one coat, as you can see.  It nearly covers the black base.
 Several of these are obvious dupes or near dupes to Nails Inc. Special Effects polishes.
 I'm more than happy to have both!
 By this point I was definitely feeling loopy from fumes.

 I was also trying to hurry before the sun disappeared!
Back Alley Deals - uh-may-zing!  The names are pretty silly, though.

I'm so envious. The cool Wet N Wild collections don't reach my part of the world. :|

Oh wow, they're all too gorgeous! I can't pick a favorite :-P Thank you for the great swatches!!

ugh...DYING for these!!

Wooow I'm really diggin these! Haven't seen them around yet, but I'll be sure to keep an eye out :D

Thanks for the awesome swatches! I love that you did them over black. It really makes the glitters that much more noticeable.

These are awesome swatches and polishes! Thanks for sharing!

Lol! I love them all! Now I might have to go looking for some...or all.....heeheehee

Only one coat?! Insane! The last two are so gorgeous.. I must have them! I wasn't aware of this new collection. I love WnW :) Where did you find these?

PS - I did the Lincoln Park in the Dark version of your Byzantine nails that I commented on earlier - will try to share a pic with you :)

I just picked up a bottle of Diamond in the Rough at Walgreens, and the polish smells terrible! Did you have the same issue with any of the ones you bought? It almost smelled as strong as the Klean Colors polish I have. It's not going to stop me from using it, but I was curious if your bottles smelled strong as well.

Ana - yeah, aren't they great? I sure hope that you can find them! I'm pretty sure they are exclusive to Walgreens stores. Your mani sounds awesome and I hope I can see it! :D

Sophia - I'm going to say that they do smell strong, but not as bad as KCs. I definitely felt "high" in a bad way after all the swatching!!

Mmmmmm Mmmmmm! That is some Haaaaawwwwt red iiiiice!

I was totally inspired. Ran out and got every single color after I read your post. I can't wait to try all the layering!

your swatches are effin amazing! Thanks for this. I have all of them and back ups of diamond. Holy shh*t, that is all.

I have almost all of these from this collection (besides 24 carats and rockin' rubies) but i'm tempted to go buy the other two. I love glitters, even though they eat top coat like CRAZY! but hey, they are beautiful and to me, they are worth it!

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
