Wet n Wild Pop Art collection swatches

Recently I found the new Wet N Wild Pop Art collection at Walgreens and had to pick up all the colors. Well I picked up everything except the white one because I think I have more than enough white polish for now. As a bonus surprise these were all on sale for $ .69 each! The color names are starting with the thumb and then moving from index to pinky are: Teal Slowly and See, Stand the Test of Lime, The Clock Strikes Orange, Listening to Blue Reed, and What is Ultra Violet? 

Formula wise these aren't perfect. Both of the blues were the best with the orange and purple coming in a close second. Those four really aren't that bad once you get the hang of each formula. The dark blue was the best of all with no issues at all. The others were a touch thin or streaky but corrected after a couple of coats. The green however was thin and sheer and had problems with balding. I think this may be the reason the white was in the collection because I think it would work much better with a white base. Overall I really do like these and for the price they are definitely worth it.

NOTD Cult Nails Riot + Mayhem + Pueen = LOVE!!

Today I still have on Cult Nails Riot but I also added their holographic topcoat Mayhem to it. I will post tomorrow what those two look like on their own together but I just had to share this picture right now. I just got my set of Pueen plates in the mail and immediately had to test them out. I stamped using Mash black stamping polish and Pueen plate 24.

Cult Nails Riot

This is Riot from the new Cult Nails collection Road Trip, Anyone? I LOVE this color!!! This is three coats and then topped with Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat. It would have been two coats but I goofed and smudged a finger and had to keep them all even. Application was really good. If you apply the coat too thin it goes a little streaky but don't want to overload it either so two nice medium coats are just perfect. This color was also a beast to capture right with my camera but maybe a touch more green in it than it comes across in the picture.

Cult Nails can be purchased from their website here.

NOTD Cult Nails Tempest & Stamping

 I was just playing around with my new Cheeky jumbo plate Happy Nails and loved the way this stamp looked so I decided to use it on all of my nails. This is Mash stamping polish in black over Color Club Eternal Beauty with a layer of Seche Vite topcoat.

Color Club - Eternal Beauty

Eternal Beauty is an amazing purple holographic from the Color Club Halo Hues 2013 collection. I bought it forever ago but just got around to trying it recently and am now kicking myself for taking so long. It was a great formula to work with and only required two coats. Dry time like most holographics was super fast. I have found that these hold up a lot better on my nails than most other holographics I have tried though. I am going on about three days with it on my hands and only have minimal tip wear and one tiny chip and that is with no top coat on at all. Pretty impressive!
