Spoiled by Wet ‘n’ Wild Jewelry Heist
I admit it, I’m a shameless thief and copycat. When I saw this post over at I Drink Nail Polish, my eyes almost fell out of my head and I knew I had to have Spoiled Jewelry Heist so I could recreate this gorgeous mani. (I’m not saying my hands and nails are nearly as beautiful as hers, but at least I could copy the color combination!) I hope you can forgive me for this blatant stealing, but imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
Spoiled by Wet ‘n’ Wild is a nail polish line that’s sold exclusively in a drug store chain called CVS in USA, so naturally it isn’t the easiest to buy for people living over here. Luckily, the lovely Karen from Frazzle and Aniploish was kind enough to pick it up for me (along with a few friends, of course), and last week they appeared in my mailbox. Thank you, Karen! <3
So, on to the manicure! Jewelry Heist is a gorgeous glitter polish that has small, iridescent glitter as well as big rose gold and golden hex glitter in a clear base. I didn’t even want to try to get this opaque, I consider this a top coat rather than a polish to wear on its own, so I layered it over China Glaze Agent Lavender.
Now, there’s also a second reason why I consider this nearly impossible to wear on its own, and that’s the horrible formula and brush. The polish itself is thick and gluey, and the brush is a huge mop. I’m not kidding, this is a monster. I had to be very careful when applying the glitter, and a sort of dabbing technique was the best to get an even coverage of glitter on the nails. Luckily, this is a stunner, so I’m willing to forgive the nasty brush and formula. Maybe.
Spoiled nail polish is, as I said, sold in CVS, and the price is $1.99 a bottle. For us international gals, our best bet is getting an overseas friend to help us, so get ready to bat those lashes, girls! ;)
