Wet n Wild Coloricon Nail Color Fall 2010 Swatches & Review
Wet n Wild has some new (Halloween?) colors out in a display called Coloricon at drugstores now. I believe there are eight colors, all in mini bottles. I picked up a few to show you today.
Unimpressed: Right off the bat I have to say these really disappointed me after I applied them. They looked really cool in the bottles, all dark, shimmery and spooky, but the formula was really pretty sucky on two of the four I got, and the colors not so unique.
Let’s start with the good.
Mystic Blue is a deep navy blue with light blue shimmer. Pretty yes. Unique, perhaps not. The formula on this was decent. It was thick and opaque in two coats, and I had no patchy spots or drag or anything.
Black Fog is a very dark blackish/purple creme. This is one of those that’s so close to black you can barely tell it’s purple. It’s ok, but I know I have others like it. The formula on this was decent and opaque in two coats.
Sleep-Walker is a blackened orange glitter. This was problematic from the beginning. The black is really kind of grey, and very thin and watery. I had problems getting this even, and had cuticle drag. Even after three coats it’s not all that interesting. There are definitely other blackened orange glitters that blow the doors off this one, so I say don’t even bother with it.
Blue Jitters is a blackened purple glitter. Not sure why they called this Blue Jitters when the glitter is more purple, but whatever. The formula on this was as bad, if not worse than Sleep-Walker. Very patchy, hard to apply, uneven and major cuticle drag. Blech. I was so annoyed on this I almost gave up. This was three coats and again I say don’t even bother with it!
Overall: Of the ones I tried I say skip ‘em, they are either dupes or pretty bad quality.
Have you tried any of these and if so, what was your experience with the formula?
