Wet n Wild Chrome Polishes: Swatches

Wet n wild tarnished polishes

Happy Wednesday! Today I'm bringing you five new colors from Wet n Wild's tarnished chrome collection.

The Tarnished collection introduces seven limited edition chrome shades that have a metallic feel to them, but aren't entirely a true chrome, tarnished finish.

Application: Most shades I found to be on the semi sheer side and needed at least three coats or more to achieve bottle color.

True chrome and metallic shades are known for excellent color pigmentation and application issues, so I wouldn't necessarily put these in that category. There were a few that applied like a metallic, but for the most part these are more shimmer like.

Check em' out! 

Wet n Wild Steel nail polish

Steel - a light silver with silver shimmer.

Wet n Wild Brass nail polish

Brass - brassy gold with gold shimmer.

Wet n Wild pewter nail polish

Pewter, the sheerest one of the group, is a coral orange with gold shimmer.

Wet n Wild Cobalt nail polish

Cobalt, one of my faves from the collection, a darkened teal with shimmer. You can't really see the darkened side from my pics, but it sorta resembles MAC Whirlwind's base color.

Wet n Wild Patina nail polish

Patina, the only one that pulled off a two coat application, a vibrant purple with pink and blue shimmer.

The chrome collection should be popping up in stores and retails for $1.89/ea. Have a wonderful day!

I've looked for these in my walgreens, but I can't find them. Do you know when they are coming out? I love them so much I don't want to wait much longer!

Hi Kay, They should be hitting stores now, so keep looking. Sometimes it's so frustrating looking for these collections :(

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
