Wet n' Wild has been source of frustration for me lately. I have NEVER been able to find any of their limited edition collections, at least for the past year. It was a total shock and thrill for me to find this holiday collection yesterday at Walgreens. This collection is exclusive to Walgreens and the bottles are $3 each.
I have a feeling based on other Florida bloggers who have shared my similar woes about finding the WnW LE collections that these will be easier to find all around. I say that for all over the country, not just Florida. I think it is because these are an exclusive to Walgreens, So, if you have doubts I think you can have a bit of hope! You can see display pics of these on Nouveau Cheap.
The collection comes with 8 glittery shades. The good thing about these is they are not layering glitters. These are opaque in 3 coats. You can however use them to layer of course! I'll show you a swatch of each on their own and then swatch of them over black.
Rockin' Rubies is a red micro-glitter with larger pink iridescent round glitters.
24 Carats is a gold micro-glitter with gold,silver, and copper thin bar glitters.
Give Me A Price Quote
Give Me A Price Quote is a yellow-green micro-glitter with yellow-green thin bar glitters.
Cost Is No Issue
Cost Is No Issue is aqua micro-glitter with larger round blue glitters.
Believe Me, It's Real
Believe Me It's Real is blue micro-glitter with larger purple round glitters.
It's All In the Cut
It's All In The Cut is a lavender micro-glitter with larger pink iridescent round glitters.
Back Alley Deals
Back Alley Deals is a purple micro-glitter with larger fuchsia round glitters.
Diamond In The Rough
Diamond in the Rough is silver and black micro-glitter with larger silver round holographic glitters.
This collection is spectacular. I was very disappointed with the OPI Muppets collection. I thought those glitters were weak/sheer and looked icky mixed with silver larger glitters. The WnW glitters are opaque, and they have a nice variation in textures/shapes that mesh together nicely. I also love how they mix other colors of glitter in the micro-glitter base. The colors that are mixed together compliment the base so it gives you a very fun and heighten looked versus just one shade of glitter.
Overall, I am super impressed! The only draw back is that these are top coat eaters, so be prepared to layer on some extra top coat for that glossy finish. I declare this collection a must have. I love ALL of these, which is rarity. If you had me choose I'd say Cost Is No Issue, Believe Me It's Real, It's All In the Cut, and Back Alley Deals are my top favorites.
Win win win! Go scour your Walgreens for these!
