Wet n Wild - Back Alley Deals

Wet n Wild - Back Alley Deals
3 coats
Seche Vite Top Coat

Back Alley Deals is from the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Ice Baby Glitter Collection - Holiday 2011. Back Alley Deals is a purple micro glitter with larger dark pink round glitter in a clear base. This dried very fast! I bumped my right hand when I was painting my left hand and expected to have ruined it but it was completely dry. Because it dries so fast it was starting to clump around the top of the bottle. I suggest not wiping your brush off each time.

This dries dull so you definitely need top coat, and more than one coat. I needed three coats of Back Alley Deals for full coverage and then three coats of Seche Vite. It still feels bumpy but I couldn't be bothered to use any more top coat. 

The edges of my nails felt rough where some of the glitter was overhanging the edge. I lightly filed my nails to remove the roughness. This started chipping within 24 hours, which may be because I filed the edges. I think it would have lasted longer if I had just put up with the roughness.

This is gorgeous, I love this! I really wanted the whole collection when they first came out. However, with my 2012 nail polish budget, I had to settle for my favourite one.

I got this from eBay for $14.57 including postage.

  6. Sooo pretty! Love the hex glitter. I hate how expensive US polish brands are for us Aussies, we're stuck between a rock (postage) and a hard place (crazy markups) here! I just bought Milani Gems off eBay yesterday, so excited... :D

    1. Oh I know! The postage sucks! Most of the time the postage is about the same price of the nail polish. Gems looks really pretty. Looking forward to your swatch :)

  7. Wow this is very gorgeous! Great to hear that it dries fast! Sometimes when I'm putting multiple coats of glitters I have to wait a while in between each coat!
