Wet-n-Wild - SleepWalker, a closer look

I said a full mani, so here ya I mentioned in the previous haul post...the more I look at it, the more I love it.
It's a pretty cloudy day out, so I didn't get the "ohh-ahh" sparkle, but I think you get the idea.

I think this is much closer to Fortune Teller than I had previously thought
Not too damn bad for .99 cents!
Way to go Wet-n-Wild!

Mini Haul

While killing time waiting for another store to open up, I was wandering around in Rite Aid....and found a few goodies.

(from left to right)
Pumpkin Glow-In-The-Dark
Full Moon
Love Bite

Sleep Walker is from Wet-n-Wild's new collection, Coloricon
Take one look at it, and you'll know why I picked it up

Uh huh, it looks like Fortune Teller
But, alas, the glitter is too fine to give that true Fortune Teller look, but still, it has a really nice depth to the polish.
Even though the original  intent was to see if it was similar to 
Fortune Teller, the more I look at it, the more I really like it.
I may just put this on as a full mani and add the picture later.

Here you can see I've tested it with gloss and matte top coats


Than I picked up Full Moon from Sinful Colors Halloween collection, which the name is escaping me at the moment. None of the colors are unique, including this one, it's a shimmery gunmetal gray. But I've only 1 polish in this shade and it dried out on this is a good replacement.


I picked up this pumpkin Glow-in-the-dark polish. What is there to say? It's glow-in-the-dark polish! How fun is that?
Oh yeah, I'll have a blasty blast with this one.


Sinful Colors Love Bite, also from their Halloween collection,
is gorgeous.

It is almost identical to one of my ALL time favorite China glaze polishes,


(in sunlight)

Love Bite is a black base with a very fine teal glitter, while blk-bila-bong is more of an all over teal black shimmer. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't capture the true color of these. But the difference so slight, you'd never know they were 2 different polishes. I wear this color on my toes just about all winter long. Love.Pure love.
