Wet ‘n’ Wild Back Alley Deals
A while ago I got three polishes from the Wet ‘n’ Wild Ice Baby collection, and I thought that was it. But no, I realized I had made a terrible mistake when I hadn’t bought Back Alley Deals as well! I kept seeing these tasty swatches, and I just had to have this polish in my life. I finally found it on eBay, and yesterday it dumped into my mailbox. I couldn’t wait, so I had to put it on right away!
Back Alley Deals is a dream come true for me, I just can’t think of a better combination than this concoction of fine purple glitter with bright fuchsia hexes in between. It’s like this polish was made for me, I guess everyone knows my weakness for pink and purple. My pics doesn’t even begin to show how intensely this sparkles, but I hope you get an idea.
Not even is it gorgeous to look at, this polish is easy to apply as well. Even if it has a clear base, the glitter is dense enough to be opaque by itself in three coats. The glitter spreads evenly on the nail, and there’s no need to coax the hexes around for better distribution. It dries very matte and gritty, though, so I brought out what I thought was my fail-proof combo of Gelous x 3 with Seche Vite on top. Even with this industrial strength topcoat combination, my mani shows some bumps when dry. I’m really exited to try Lynnderella’s Glitter Tamer topcoat which I have coming in the mail, hopefully that will quench hungry glitters like this one.
