I didn’t post a manicure yesterday because I was finishing up swatches for this collection. I never really planned on posting swatches of a collection unless I was sent something to provide a review, but when I got my hands on these Wet n Wild polishes, I knew I had to.
Saved by the Nail Display
I know that there are many polish fans out there that are having trouble finding these limited editions, but rest assured that they do exist! I don’t go into CVS that often, but I decided to make a stop just to see if they had them. Not only did they have them, but they had at least one bottle of the entire set! I almost couldn’t believe it, considering how some people can’t find this at all, or can only find a few colors and are searching multiple CVS stores. Not that I really needed to, but I grabbed one of each color.
Despite having some Wild Shine polishes in my stash, I’d never worn them, so I wasn’t sure what to expect in the way of wear and application.
The six colors of the Saved By the bell collection. From left to right:
Pom Pom Kelly, Straight A Jesse, Pin’ Em Slater, Nerd Alert: Screech, Chick Magnet Zack, Fashionista Lisa
Please forgive my poor swatch photos. They were done over two days when the sun was out one minute and it was cloudy and rainy the next. Excuse the poor nail clean up as well. Details seem to disappear when I’m in a hurry!
Pom Pom Kelly
Pom Pom Kelly is a hot pink shade. It goes on sheer, and dries to a satin finish. It looks more glossy in my photos, but there is a slight matte to it as well, hence the satin like finish. Application was amazing, no streaks and dried quickly. I did two coats of polish in this photo, and you could see the nail line. It was more visible than in the photo. I did not apply any top coat.
Straight A Jesse
Straight A Jesse is a bright neon orange. My photo makes it look brighter than it really is, but it’s still eye catching! Again, the application was amazing. It has the same satin finish to it. This polish also dries sheer, and you can see the nail line. I did 2 coats of polish, no top coat.
Pin’ Em Slater
Pin’ Em Slater is a bright neon yellow. I was curious about how this would go onto my nail. I have another neon yellow similar to this that streaks horribly! What a pleasant surprise with how will this one went on! It was smooth, no streaks, flawless. I really want another bottle of this just because of those three things! This yellow was more sheer than any of the other colors. I applied 3 coats of this polish instead of 2 because of how sheer it came out to be. It has the same satin finish. I love this color, even though it’s hard for me to wear any shade of yellow on its own. Again, no top coat.
Warm Colors of the Collection
Nerd Alert: Screech
Nerd Alert: Screech is a neon green shade. This one is also fairly sheer. In the picture I’m wearing 2 coats. Again, this polish had the same satin finish. I love this shade of green because it’s not too bright, but still fits in the neon family. Application was great, just as the other colors were. This is one of my favorites from this collection. No top coat.
Chick Magnet Zack
Chick Magnet Zack is an awesome teal shade. If I was asked which color in the collection was my favorite, it would be this one! It didn’t apply as sheer as the other colors and the satin finished worked really well. My picture shows 2 coats, no top coat. I really want another bottle of this, over any other color in the collection. If this is the only bottle you ever find in this collection, pick it up. There’s nothing much more to say except that this is just amazing.
Fashionista Lisa is a great shade of purple. I know it looks more pink in my photo, but it dries to the color in the bottle. There is noticeable difference between Fashionista Lisa and Pom Pom Kelly. In fact, I’m wearing one color on one hand and the other color on the other hand. This is another sheer, but not so bad with just 2 coats. It has the same satin finish as the rest. No top coat.
Cool Colors of the Collection
Overall, I love this collection! I’m so glad I picked it up, even though it wasn’t really on my “must find, must have list”. I am amazed at the application and I’m hoping it’s the same with the other Wild Shines I have. Dry time was great as well. The next time I wear these, I’m going to add a white base or nearly nude base, just to see how it looks. I think the one I’m most excited about is Pin’ Em Slater because it didn’t streak. The color I love most is Chick Magnet Zack. I have some other sheers in my collection, and I think these have finally gotten me to embrace them!
As far as I know this collection is exclusive to CVS stores, as that’s where I found mine and where others have found their SBtB polishes. I’ve also heard that someone found them at Kmart, but I can’t confirm that.
Have you spotted this collection? Have you picked any up, and if you have, what did you get? What ones do you want if you haven’t found it yet?
