Wet n Wild Chrome Polishes: Swatches
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!
Steel - a light silver with silver shimmer.
Brass - brassy gold with gold shimmer.
Pewter, the sheerest one of the group, is a coral orange with gold shimmer.
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.
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!
