New Wet N Wild Color Icon Nail Polish Swatches, Pictures, Review

Wet N' Wild released a group of new products this month including eyeshadows, nail polish, lip gloss and more. I did a review on all of the eyeshadow palettes (click here if you want to see that) and now I've finally finished the review for nail polishes.

The colors I have are:
*Gray's Anatomy - A pearly gray with a both a pink and green duochrome finish. This is a dupe for Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game
*Saved By The Blue - A medium blue with blue duochrome and a super shiny finish, almost metallic, but not quite.
*Hannah Pinktana - A pink holographic glitter. This is best used over another shade. The glitter specs look to be pink, green, gold and a very few purple sparks. It's gorgeous over their nail polish Buffy The Violet Slayer.
*Blue Wants To Be A Millionaire - Light blue holographic glitter. Again, best when paired over another color, such as Saved By The Blue. Has specs of green, gold, silver and i think a few orangey/red specs as well.
*Buffy The Violet Slayer - A medium to dark purple with a magenta sheen. If you look closely through the bottle purple/magenta shimmer, but this doesnt show up when applied. It has the same finish as Saved By The Blue, almost metallic, but not.
*Teal Of Fortune - A green almost turquoise color with different shades of green glass specs. This is my favorite stand-alone shade in the collection. It's a dupe for OPI Catch Me In Your Net and is also pretty similar to Zoya's Charla.

Here are the swatches on plain white paper. Top Row: Gray's Anatomy, Saved By The Blue, Hannah Pinktana. Second Row: Blue Wants To Be A Millionaire, Teal Of Fortune, Buffy The Violet Slayer.
Swatched here is Blue Wants To Be A Millionaire over Saved By The Blue and Hannah Pinktana over Buffy The Violet Slayer.
This one is blurry, but the beautiful holographic sparkle can be seen. It seems sparkle always shows up well in the blurry ones. Go figure.

Overall, I really like these polishes. They apply easily, have good pigmentation(except the holographics which look best layered over other polish), and they picked great color choices. All of the colors are lovely and have several different finishes. There's really something for anyone, and these are only $1.99!
