Wet N Wild Be Jeweled Nail Polish Collection Part 2

After losing one of my precious nail polishes in a "freak" (not really) accident, I decided to replace her and in the process picked up a few more ;-)

"Bow In My Presence" has a light turquoise tinted glitter base with larger, mulitcolored hex glitter (2 layers shown):


"Jewels For Your Highness" (the one that I lost, tragically, in my last trip) has a pink-lavender base with the same larger, multicolored hex glitters:


"Speak When Spoken To" has a blue base with multicolored larger glitter pieces:


At first, I thought that I *had* to use these alone because they were so dense glitter-wise, but I decided to layer "Born Into Privilege" (the first one I picked up) over a color.  

First I did 2 layers of Wet N Wild "Caribbean Frost", a warm turquoise:

I then put just one layer of "Born Into Privilege" over this.  I love the combination!  It reminds me of mermaids and the ocean:



Are you picking up any of these?  Do you prefer them alone or layered?

  1. Ooooh! I love the "mermaid" combo! It looks absolutely perfect for summer! I was sure that these were duplicates for the new China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters, but while there are definitely similarities, I can see that these are more sheer - which makes them perfect for layering!

    1. Thanks! I think you are right, the CG's are definitely more full coverage (although, I only tried 2 layers here....I'm thinking 3 would give me *almost* the same effect). I so badly need "Optical Illusion" based on your swatches ;-) Now the wheels are turning as to which colors I can layer the rest of these over!

  3. All of these look so pretty on you! Now that I've seen Jewels swatched I can see that my assumption of what broke was def wrong. I see a lot more pinkish tones in my bottle of Speak though, I wonder why :S Glad you got those replaced! I don't know if I'll buy any more of the Be Jeweled Collection though. I'm super duper on the fence. xo E.

    1. E, I think the problem with these is that once they are on, they all kinda look the same to me. So you can definitely get by with just 1 ;-) (But, now the 'hoarder' in me is thinking, "well, there are only 2 others in this collection that you are missing...why not go get those?") Ugh, I have a SICKNESS!!

    1. Hahah, I hear you! I found these ones at Rite Aid (*which is shocking...the Rite Aid in this township is teeny tiny and ancient...very rarely updated!). I'm really crushing on the CG's too...I need a few of them as well!
