Wet n Wild Limited Edition ColorIcon Ice Baby Nail Color Collection Swatches

I was so excited to find these nail polishes along with the baked palettes and the matte palette at my local Walgreens. The drug stores near me NEVER carry any limited edition collections. Instead they have ugly gift sets of cheap cologne and rock hard eyeshadow palettes. The display was missing two of the colors, 24 Carats and Give Me A Price, but I'll post pictures of those as soon as I can get my greedy little hands on them. I absolutely love these glitters! Apparently a few of them are dead on dupes of some Nails Inc polishes (see Scrangie's comparison here) and a few look like the limited edition mini set of Deborah Lippmann polishes from Nordstrom (see swatches here). Of course I prefer Wet n Wild's because they're cheaper!

I used three coats to get full coverage with all 6 polishes. Some you could probably get away with using 2 coats. The formula wasn't terrible for being opaque glitter polishes in a clear base, but some thinner might help the thickness a bit. And these do dry very... textured. You will need a few coats of top coat to get that glass-like finish I'm obsessed with. Some thicker glitters don't layer well, but I found that one coat looks amazing over black. I'll show the layered swatches at the end. Also, those are the only ones with top coat. All others are left in their natural, gritty glory.

Sorry for the bad clean up on my nails. That's what i get for doing swatches while sick.

  1. I went looking at two stores yesterday after reading Scrangie's post, but nada. I am a sad panda

  2. O.O These are so pretty!!! Darnit! Now I have to go on a nail polish quest!

  3. I got 2 sets the first store that had them. Lovely!!! But I would recommend anyone that uses these to become familiar with the foil removal method!!

  4. I thought the blue had a different name. Either way, these are pretty and I picked up the blue and Diamond in the Rough the other day. They're really pretty and you can't beat the price. My Walgreens had all the matte and the baked palettes, too.

  5. Oops! You're right Megan! I got the lavender and the blue mixed up. Fixed!

  7. These are really pretty and affordable!

  8. The colours are all so pretty! :D But I'm afraid of glitter now coz they're so hard to remove.

  9. WOW, Jessie these are gorgeous! I have never tried WnW polish but you have me convinced I need to buy my first ones. I *love* It's All In The Cut. I thought it was pretty enough in the shade but in over black polish it transforms. :)

  10. OMG I can't even pick a favorite, they ALL look gorgeous! Now I want them all LOL! They are stunning over black nail polish x

  11. oh man, so pretty! congrats on finding them. Ama and myself have gone to 3 Walgreens in our area (aka the only ones in southern maine) and none of the WnW stuff is ANYWHERE. Even at the largest WG in the state. All the rest of them are super tiny. So frustrating!

  12. They are so pretty! I would have even worn the layered Rockin Rubies look for Halloween! I saw these at Walgreens but didn't think much of them. Now that I've seen your swatches I might go back - thanks Jessi :-)

  13. They all look stonking over black!

  14. Oh they are all so so pretty! I neeeeed them D:


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
