HAUL!!

YAY!
I finally had a bit of free time to scrounge my local Rite Aids
for some polishes that I've been lemming for.

Precious Petals



I picked up 3 shades from the new Wet n Wild Chrome collection

Aside from the disappointing fact that these bottles are only 
.29 oz., the shades are beautiful.
They applied very nicely, and in 2 coats, they were perfect.
These are interesting, having a metallic finish, but upon 
closer inspection, they actually have tiny micro glitters.
I definitely need to pick up the rest of these!
These retail for $2.99 each.

Dance In The Dark

These 2 shades are from the new Julie G collection,
from Jessie's Girl Cosmetics.
If you are unfamiliar, 
 JulieG. 713 is a huge makeup/nail guru on YouTube, 
last spring she worked with Jessie's Girl to formulate a collection,
and I guess it was such a success, they in turn gave her 
own label. 
I love seeing YouTube success like that! 
And Julie is a real sweetheart, to way to go for her!!

Again, these aren't full size bottles,
these coming in at just .35 oz. per bottle.
Still, there is a very nice range of shades, none of them
particularly unique, but still quite pretty.


These both have a great finish, 
and applied smoothly in 2 coats. 

These retail for $3.99 each

Next I picked up 3 shades from Color Club's
Take Wing collection.

Wing Fling
Metamorphosis

 

I'm a big fan of Color Club, but these were a big miss for me.
They were extremely sheer,each needing 4 coats to get 
a decent opacity. 
and the gorgeous duo-chrome that you see in the bottle,
doesn't translate at all on the nail.
Bummer :(
Still, if you like bright metallic's, these can work,
I just recommend that they be layered to get some real punch.


Color Club retails for $3.99 each

I was fortunate enough to not only find the new
Wet n Wild Coloricon Be Jeweled collection,
but I also managed to grab ALL the shades,
oh happy day!

I won't go into too much detail,
since I plan on doing a separate post about them
and comparing them to 
China Glaze Prismatic collection.

What I can tell you is that if you don't have easy access to
China Glaze, these are a great and cheaper alternative.

These retails for $3.99 each

WHY can't we have Wet'n'Wild here in Italy anymore? :°°°

(to be honest, limited collections never arrived here, we had just the regular stand with all the boring colours >.< )

Goodness - I need to go back to my
Rite Aide and tell them the retail for the CC glassfleck brights was way wrong they charged me - we never have had CC ever at mine before this - they retailed them for $5.99 each.
