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

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.


Kickin' It
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.

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.
